Sampson Cay Club
Reviewed 23 May 2013

For the past 21 years we have kept our boat in the Bahamas for the winter. The last 5 years we have based out of Sampson. The facilities are excellent and are very well maintained. The store is well stocked and the food in the restaurant is always great. Also, the people that work there are very friendly and helpful. This is especially true for the manager Mike and his wife Cathy. They strive to make your stay enjoyable. Roger C

We spent a week docked in Sampson Cay Club. It was the perfect spot to dock our boat and explore all the islands. Enjoyed swimming with the nurse sharks that hung out around the dock, morning runs on the island, and the quite, secluded beaches on Sampson. A short boat ride away you can snorkel Thunderbird grotto, and feed the pigs at Major Cay.
Cathy and Mike (management) were great. Everything was spotlessly clean and they run a great little store. Make sure you try the Bahama Mamas...delicious!

Stumbled upon Sampson while cruising the Exumas. Staff was very friendly and helpful, always with a smile. Would like to espicially thank the manager and his wife Kathy for all the local information. Made us feel very welcome even tho we were not staying in the marina or cottages. Nice store for provisioning. A must stop next time cruising through the Exumas.

I had the opportunity to stay in the Exumas at Sampson Cay in October 2012, the staff including management, chefs, store clerk and waiters/waitresses were gracious and accommodating. I was very impressed with the quality of food, housing and customer care. I wish I could go back every year! I viewed all the properties on the island but stayed in the Maine House, it had beautiful views. The island is small but full of beauty and thanks to the staff made for an excellent vacation! Thank you Sampson Cay!! - Nikki Schwab

We spent a week in the marina and had an incredible time. The marina store had the best selection of produce we could find in the Exumas! The marina was clean and well maintained. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Thanks to Mike (the manager) and Cathy (his wife) for snorkeling tips and overall great customer service. The island is beautiful with pristine beaches and reefs to explore. We will definitely come back again.

We have docked in this marina many times and so far this year have spent more than 3 weeks in cumulative nights. Everyone is so very helpful and any request we have had has been met in a timely manner and exceptionally. The dock masters, Fly and Rock are right on it, well informed and always within reach. The marina basin is an excellent port in the storm and well protected. The vivacious, sweet, sensational Sanya announces lunch daily on the radio and the restaurant is all she touts it to be. Mike and Cathy were attentive to our needs, friendly and made us feel very comfortable. We absolutely love this island. It is beautiful, the sand flats at low tide shimmer, the beaches (plural) are pristine and show many different vistas and there is always a breeze on one. The hiking trails are a highlight for us,as it is not always easy to get exercise on a boat. These trails around the island are scenic, interesting, different levels of challenge and just plain fun.
Wonderful island, marina and people. We love to "base" our Exuma cruising at Sampson each year. We will be back !

We docked for five nights at Sampson Cay and found it the most beautiful island in the Exumas. We had great service from Mike and Cathy who were fun, forward, and conscientious of making sure all guests were respected and provided for. We fed nurse sharks off the dock, swam with them around the island, and explored the many hidden beaches scattered throughout the little island. In addition, I was able to run the many paths every morning -- never missing a day of exercise. The island was very quiet and provided a nice escape from our days of snorkeling and exploring. We really enjoyed our stay.
