Amazing tunnel built by slaves for the import/export of goods. Can't imagine the difficult labor. The entrance is in a beautiful park and the exit offers a spectacular view of the coastline.

Kayaked from the resort beach ( Buccament Bay) through the bat cave! Great fun! Its narrow but that just adds to the excitement!

The bat cave is a breeding ground for bats...you kayak through a very narrow space...upsetting the bats and thereby ensuring you get a bit of bat droppings on you. It seemed a shame to intrude on the bats...I felt guilty at disturbing and frightening them

It was actually a dive with Indigo dive (fantastic team). Need to be a little cautious of the swells and rocks but the bats fly just over your head as you swim through. Keep reg in as surface water may be a little 'mucky'. Come...More

Fun distraction from the typical snorkel menu. You will see lots of bars up close. At one point the bars are about 18" from the water line at high tide.

My Norweigan neighbor took me to a cove, that I had to cut us into with my cutlass. It used to be an eco-resort. The snorkelling was really good because the water was crystal clear. Then we moved to the next cove, and swam from...More
