Pelican Cays Land & Sea Park
In order to maintain the effectiveness of Abaco’s marine parks and ensure that these habitats remain healthy and productive into the future the taking of anything living or dead from these areas is prohibited. Fishing, spearing, conching or shelling is not allowed in these areas. You will be fined and/or your vessel and fishing equipment will be taken away. This is relevant to Walker’s Cay National Park, Black Sound Cay National Reserve, Fowl Cay National Park, and Pelican Cays Land and Sea Park (marine parks), and Black Sound Cay National Reserve, Tilloo Cay Reserve and Abaco National Park (terrestrial parks).

PCLSP is the sister park to The Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park (the world’s first marine protected area). PCLSP has all you need for a fun day out in Abaco! Snorkel or dive at Sandy Cay reef, or explore the rocky seashore, sandy beaches and other coastal habitats on the Pelican Cays. Great spots for picnicking, beaching and swimming.
Moorings are provided for your use at PCLSP through a partnership between Bahamas National Trust, FRIENDS, local businesses and volunteers. Please refer to the FRIENDS Moorings Brochure for locations and respect the rules for mooring use and only tie up boats less than 25ft.
