More Great Drone Footage by Captain Bergeron – Exuma Cays Bahamas
Warderick Wells is the center of the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, which was created by the Bahamian Government in 1959. It stretches from Wax Cay Cut in the north to Conch Cut in the south. The park headquarters buildings are located here. Because this is a park, nothing may be taken from it. All fish, birds, animals, plants, coral, even rocks and sand, are protected. This includes seashells, both living and dead. The Exumas is a district of the Bahamas, consisting of over 365 islands, also called cays. Many of the unnamed beaches and coves of the islands, including extensive offshore reef areas, are included in the protected Exuma National Land and Sea Park of the Bahamas National Trust. Some of the islands on which there are permanent residents and resorts include Staniel Cay (home of the Staniel Cay Yacht Club, a fixture in the Exumas), Fowl Cay, Musha Cay and Iguana Cay. Thunderball Grotto, located just a few hundred yards off Staniel Cay, is one location where the James Bond film Thunderball was filmed. Sandy Cay, just a short boat ride from Little Exuma was the location used for filming the Pirates of the Caribbean beach scenes and a Shell commercial. The novel Wind from the Carolinas was set in Great Exuma.
In light of the relatively low cost of purchasing islands and the relatively low Bahamian tax regime for non-locals, a number of famous people own islands in the Exumas. These include Aga Khan, Nicolas Cage, David Copperfield, Ali Daei, Johnny Depp, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, Ali Karimi, Eddie Murphy, Eddie Irvine and Tyler Perry.
