Tarpum Bay, Bahamas

Experience hosted by Sharon

  1. 2 hours

What you'll do

We will meet at a selected beach depending on the wind. After a short safety and instruction briefing we will take paddle boards and paddle with many turtles in blue calm water. After we will go to a pristine reef or mangrove estuary depending on the win. We will sorkel for 20- 30 minutes. On the way back we will go back and paddle again with the turtles. Typically seen on this tour are reefs filled with stag and brain coral, fans, tropical fish, turtles, rays, and so much more. If we go to the mangroves we see coral, tropical fish, sea cucumbers, turtles, rays, and more! The tour lasts from 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Eleuthera has amazing beaches, reefs, estuaries, and mangroves filled with abundant sealife and this tour will show it to you!
Other things to note
I will contact you the day before to confirm meeting time and place. It is always determined by the wind and within 10 minute drive of South Tarpum Bay. Looking forward to getting you on the water!

I have been coming to Eleuthera for over 25 years. During that time I have been diving, fishing, snorkeling, paddleboarding, and spearfishing with the local fisherman here. I moved some years back and have been living here full time. I train local guides to give back that which was so freely given to me. We also use local guides that have been trained rigorously.
I am a free dive, snorkeling, paddle board, and kayak instructor and am life guard, first aid, and CPR certified. I practice yoga and I love Eleuthera! I really enjoy showing guests the amazing nature that is so abundant here. We will explore bays, estuaries, reefs, and coastal habitat. I can also show you where caves, blue holes, fishing, and other local spots to check out!

Simply a wonderful experience!! Paddled to epic sceneries, saw many many sea turtles, lots of fish (even a Lion Fish), some sea cucumbers and (huge) starfish. Got the tour from KK, who also gave a lot of information about the locations, about Eleuthera itself including some history, and tips for the rest of our stay. Definitely worth a recommendation!!

What an outstanding adventure! Sharon and her go-guide KK were wonderful guides. Everything went smooth and was perfect. Sharon is an expert and my GF and I felt very comfortable under her watch. She has a wealth of knowledge about Eleuthera. Absolutely a major highlight for our Bahama vacation. We saw the rays, lobsters, colorful corals and even a super cute baby turtle. Highly recommend!

Omg this was soooo much fun!! My husband and I went on this experience and are so grateful we did. We had opportunities to do and see so many new things and my husband even got to spear a lobster which satisfied his desire to go fishing :-) 10/10 if you are on the island do this!!!

A must do if staying anywhere on Eleuthera. Sharon and Lewis were fantastic guides! Both are very knowledgeable about the island and its’ ecosystem. My 12 year old son and I felt very safe throughout the adventures. Sharon made sure we saw the best coral reef! Must do no matter where you are staying in the island. We made the journey down from Gregory Town. This is one for the books for sure! Sharon also guided us to amazing wrap place for lunch and 2 pretty cool spots: the Cathedral Cave and The Ocean Hole. Thanks again!
