Iguana at Allan’s Cay
In the Exuma Island chain on a small deserted cay called Allan’s Cay is a colony of the rare black iguanas, called the Bahamian Rock Iguana, or the Bahamian Dragon. The adults of this iguana subspecies are a dull gray black and can be found on around 7 cays in the Exuma Islands. Allan’s Cay is a easy cruise from Staniel Cay a good location to stop for night on your yacht charter itinerary for the Exuma Islands in the Bahamas, and is actually a group of 3 small islets with an anchorage in the middle. Seeing this rare iguana at Allan’s Cay is a great and easy stop during your yacht charter. There are a large number of iguanas on this cay, and they look forward to visits. Anchoring nearby and taking the yacht tender to the beach usually brings iguanas down to the beach area to investigate. They are surprisingly friendly, however this may be from knowledge over the years that visiting yachtsmen usually bring food, so be sure to bring a snack or two to give to these rare creatures.
