    Play Pirate at Pigeon Cay

    Explore like Robinson Crusoe for a day on this pristine, uninhabited island! If you've ever thought it might be kind of cool to be alone on an island like Tom Hanks in "Castaway" but don't necessarily want to be gone for 4 years, then check out Pigeon Cay. What you'll have to do is arrange to be dropped off and get picked up by boat. There are several tour operators and charter boats you can get to take you. After that, you can explore the island by yourself in peace. Most visitors come here to snorkel and see if they can spot the remains of a 200-year old shipwreck right off the shore. Bring your gear along if you'd like to try that. You'll feel just like a real explorer!
