White Cay Bank Bahamas

The Bahamas have many shallow areas and we have been enjoying navigating these stunning blue waters. Yesterday we poked into the shallows near White Cay in the Southern Exuma Islands. We came in at half tide and rising when there was just 3 feet covering the sand over the entrance.White Cay1
At low tide we took the dinghy ashore to film these amazing shallow waters.

There is nobody here for and in fact no land either since all this sand submerges at high tide. All footprints will be wiped clean...

Masthead view down to the deck - although it looks very shallow it is actually 6 feet deep.

Here its about 8 feet deep but you can see the shallow water behind us which is the entry channel we came in at.

Looking onto the banks the height allows you to see the channels and cuts in the sand.
