Little Major’s Spot Overview

Little Major’s Spot is a half-mile-long anchorage area situated to the east of Big Major’s Cut. It’s surrounded by nearly 3-foot cliffs on the southern and northern sides. To the western side lies several beaches that have been bleached over the years. It is also known for a cave that goes by the name of Thunderball Grotto that’s located just south of Big Major’s Spot. A trip down to the caves will be an exhilarating experience; the nearby anchorage is supportive.

Little Major’s Cut is also known as the Big Rock Cut because of large white rocks that line the northern end. When sailing from the southern end of Sampson Cay, you have to be cautious of these deadly rocks. There is also a rock bar on the eastern shore when you enter from Exuma Sound.

The anchorage offers a surreal view of the Exuma Sound landscape and is a must-visit for private charters. You can also take a dinghy from nearby cays to explore the beautiful beaches and shoals underwater.

Navigation and Anchoring

Little Major’s Spot is deep and known to have very strong cuts. A report published in the 1920s likened the currents to the force of a mill race, while suggesting professional sailors to proceed with caution.

Enter the cut from the north and stick to the northern half of the cut. You will need to navigate through the rocky patch but it shouldn’t be a problem in daylight. Nighttime sailing is not recommended. The anchorage starts from the northern end but don’t park just yet (despite the existing mooring). There is a white coral reef somewhere in the area that is difficult to get out of.

Instead, head to the southeast tip of Big Major’s Spot and continue to head east. We recommend dropping the anchor on the eastern shore.

Another way to enter is from Staniel Cay in the north. Head north and pass between Big Major’s Cut and Crown of Thorns Rock to find 7-feet water levels. It’s safe to drop anchor here and rest.
