We are considering visiting Grand Bahama for a day via the Celebration Cruise (ferry) the next time we are in South Florida. What can we do in that day, independently if possible? We aren't into the ideas of lounging at a resort or joining a group tour.
We've traveled to a few of the Out Islands but never to Grand Bahama. We liked driving throught the woods to the nearly deserted beaches of Eleuthera. We also liked the freedom of taking a Boston Whaler up and down the Exuma Cays. Is it possible to rent a boat, without captain, and visit any of Grand Bahama's cays (Sandy and Lightboune both look great) in such a short time frame? If not, what about small out-of-the-way beaches?
