  • Beautiful BEAUTIFUL place. Went here for a cookout and some snorkeling. Very rocky so you definitely need water shoes or your fresh manicure will be done for!
  • Beautiful for snorkeling!
  • Great snorkeling location
  • Hard to find a nicer spot in the Bahamas. Well, everyplace in the Bahamas is nice, but Peterson Cay is a nice little anchorage. Good beach, clear water, lots of sea life and birds on the Cay itself. Plus it's only a short haul from Lucaya.
  • We kyaked to and snorkeled around Peterson Cay. It was beautiful, the island itself is very small; perhaps one or two acres.
