Thankful to be away from Staniel Cay, Bitter Guana Cay was a breath of fresh air! We went ashore with our friends, Lynn and Ken, aboard Tryst Two, to see the marine iguanas. They were interesting creatures and very docile for the most part.
These iguanas are said to not be aggressive because of the no feeding policy. There are also marine iguanas by Allen’s Cay, said to be rather viscous by comparison. Of course, a tourist tour boat then showed up and blew this myth apart by throwing food to the iguanas.
Bitter Guana Cay has some interesting caves and hillside you can climb up. At the bottom of the hill near some caves are a group of iguanas that challenged us. One even rushed Ken as he was taking photos. I decided the safest place is in the water, so took this picture of Ken with the iguana.
There was a nice view of Mahi from the Bitter Guana Cay iguana shore, so pulled out my camera to get this shot:
We had a lovely time on this beach and at anchor, but were ready to move on and visit Black Point, which many of our friends had spoken most highly of.
