We then moved on to Staniel Cay which is the first real settlement we've seen since Nassau. We treated ourselves to a meal at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club where there were about eight nurse sharks swimming right below the dinghy dock. Just off Staniel Cay is the Thunderball Grotto which is a cave that you can snorkel into and it opens up into a large cavern with a couple of holes in the ceiling where the sunlight shines in. It gets it's name from the James Bond movie (Thunderball) that was filmed here.
Just to the west of Staniel Cay is a cay called Big Major's Spot. There are pigs that live on the island and as you approach the beach in the dinghy they swim out to meet you for handouts.
