Snorkeling Cambridge Cay and Rocky Dundas

 

Rocky Dundas is a series of caves near Cambridge Cay in the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park.  There are stalactite and stalagmite formations lit by overhead holes in the cave. At low tide one can stand on the rocky shelves inside the cave.   We were anchored in Cambridge Cay, near the mooring balls and found a large area across from Conch Cut with coral gardens.  The current was strong, so the only way we could see the coral formations was to tie a floating rope to the dinghy and let it drift with the current while we held on to the rope and snorkeled.  The most dramatic coral was the elkhorn in the coral gardens and also near Rocky Dundas.  Some of them were longer than us.  Since this is a protected area, we saw a gigantic lobster and other sea creatures in the coral formations.  However, the camera was not working at that time. I think many people miss this large coral area as they head straight to the nearby Rocky Dundas caves and don’t realize what they are missing.
