Managing national parks is a huge but vital undertaking that we cannot do without your support.

Our goal is to create and maintain a national park benefit system that offers benefits to our community as special places for their enjoyment. That includes opportunities for recreation and entrepreneurship as well as support for tourism and education. The BNT is the custodian of our country’s national parks, but they belong to all of us and we need your help to maintain and improve them.

Film / Photography

The BNT seeks to maintain a balance between public access to national parks and the protection of natural ecosystems. It is the BNT’s policy to allow commercial filming and photography consistent with protection and public enjoyment of park resources.

The BNT supports research projects and educational activities. Environmental films contribute to public understanding of the natural world, but a primary consideration is the potential for resource damage and disruption of normal public use and aesthetic values in our national parks.

Commercial, non-profit, documentary, promotional, or educational project organisers must obtain a permit from the BNT to film or take still photographs (using models, sets or props) within national parks. Permits are not required when visitors are engaged in filming/photography intended for their personal use and enjoyment. The use of aircraft and helicopters is restricted and will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Mooring Fees

Mooring buoys are used in environmentally sensitive areas and to prevent damage to the seabed. There are 7 mooring fields in the Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park. Moorings in the Warderick Wells area are all assigned by ECLSP staff. Contact the ECLSP Office on VHF channel 16 or 09 during office hours for a mooring assignment. The mooring fields at Shroud Cay, Hawksbill Cay (North & South) and Cambridge Cay are all on a first come, first serve basis.

Thank you for helping us to preserve the natural beauty of the Exuma Cays Land & Sea Park.

See Leisure, Commercial and Research & Science Vessels for complete user fee rates.

The use of all moorings is at the boat owners/users risk.

Research Fees

Supporting research projects and other activities e.g. environmental documentaries are a key element to understanding ecosystems, evaluating management effectiveness and disseminating information. Researchers are required to obtain a research permit from the Bahamas National Trust to conduct research within national parks.
