With its gem-toned waters and warm climes, Abaco commands visitors to get wet, meet some local sea creatures, and marvel at coral reefs. Don’t resist. Go see Brendal and his staff, who have been doing snorkel and diving tours for decades. The Family Adventure Tour is a six-hour excursion that includes a reef snorkel and native seafood lunch on an uninhabited island beach, where you can pet and feed sting rays.
Along the way, the tour guide delivers lessons on creating conch salad from a live conch pulled from the sea, how to snorkel, and other local knowledge. Brendal’s also offers encounters with swimming pigs, wild dolphins, and sea turtles.
