Things to do and places to go
Bahia Honda State Park – these beaches (on the ocean and bay side) are ranked among the top ten most beautiful
beaches in the U.S. crystal clear waters, soft sand and a remote location at the western point of the Seven Mile
Bridge – are well worth a visit.
Crane Point Hammock – 60 acres of tropical hardwood hammock exist as it did 300 years ago. The hammock is
similar in many ways to the tropical rainforest – a variety of species call the hammock home. This non-profit
Nature Center has touch tanks, interactive exhibits, a historic Bahamian house and a Wild Bird Rescue Center to
occupy the minds of both young and old.
Diving & Snorkeling – dive into the waters off Marathon and you’ll see the underwater equivalent of the
tropical rainforest. Four miles offshore, Sombrero Reef Light tower – a marine sanctuary -- straddles dramatic
coral formations that are home to parrotfish, angelfish, sergeant majors, yellowtail, lobster, crabs, and hundreds
of other species.
Dolphin Research Center – "Dolphin Encounter", a half-day program focuses on dolphin communication and includes
a hands-on session that gives you the opportunity to talk to and swim with the dolphins. And the Dolphin Splash,
half-hour program lets you swim with the dolphins.
