Shroud Cay

Shroud Cay, an uninhabited cay owned by Exuma Park, is an archipelago of cays and rocks surrounding a shallow tidal mangrove salina which serves as a unique nursery for conch, crawfish (lobster), sea turtles, birds and many varieties of fish.

The tidal creek to the north of Shroud Cay is very shallow and should be be explored only at Idle Speed/No wake on a rising tide to avoid being stranded in your dinghy.

The north tidal creek must be explored at idle speed only to avoid disturbing the sea, bird and plant life in this marine nursery.

Please be respect ful and don’t disturb the sea, bird and plant life in this marine sanctuary.
