If you look down anywhere off the 365 cays of the Exumas, you’re likely to find some kind of creature. The water is crystal clear, which means you can see every conch shell, starfish, stingray, turtle, lobster, fish… and shark.
It’s common to see nurse sharks gathering near the docks from Staniel Cay up to Compass Cay. They wait for scraps to fall off of yachts. Sometimes fishermen feed them. Restaurants will occasionally toss them their seafood leftovers. Some sharks would see people in the water and think “food” in a totally different way, but in the Bahamas, even the sharks are more relaxed.
