We have slow internet here at Big Majors Spot, but have spent two wonderful nights and days. The highlights here are all solidly on the well-trod Exumas path. So, there are a lot of boats in the Big Majors anchorage. Yet, it is a big bay with lots of room.
First, we visited the swimming pigs on the beach at Big Majors. They were a hoot. They swam out to us looking for a snack as we approached in the dinghy.
Next, we snorkeled the Thunderball Grotto, a cave that was made famous in the James Bond movie, wait, wait, ok “Thunderball”. After you swim through the short cave, it opens up into a large room with cathedral ceilings and a few skylights. It was spectacular. Add to the scene the hundreds of fish that school around the entrance and it was a great experience. So wonderful, that we returned the next day to do it again.
We also explored some caves along the shore of Big Majors and managed to get in a snorkel on a sunken plane just west of Staniel. We’re moving north again today for Cambridge Cay for the weekend.
