Exuma Bahamas
Exuma's capital, Georgetown was once suggested to be the capital of The Bahamas because of its Elizabeth Harbour, which has a draft of 16 feet and made Exuma a favourite haunt for pirates. Since the 1950s, the harbour has been the site of the Family Island Regatta -– the race of Bahamian-made sailboats.

Exuma consists of two main islands, Great Exuma & Little Exuma and about 365 little cays (Islands) located in the center of the Bahamas Islands chain. The Bahamian Iguanas live there and the 176 square mile Exuma National Land & Sea Park is located there-famous for diving and yachting. The island of Great Exuma is the largest of these islands with its main town of George Town being the administrative center. Elizabeth Harbour is snuggly protected between Great Exuma and the offshore islands of Stocking Island, Elizabeth Island and Guana Cay and provides the most exquisite cruising area in the western hemisphere.
