After a detour to Great Exuma, we returned to Conception Island to experience what some people consider to be the premier national park in the Bahamas. The whole island is a 2600-acre park, but the underwater part of the park increases the protected area to 30,000 acres. In the morning, we took a Zodiac tour in the mangrove lagoons, where we learned about mangroves, turtles, queen conches, and rays. Next we went kayaking and standup paddleboarding in a part of the lagoon that is too shallow for the Zodiacs. After lunch, the weather was quite bad, but it improved rapidly. We were still able to snorkel on a beautiful coral reef and take a walk on a gorgeous beach.
