Exuma Water Sports HISTORY


Bahamian family

Exuma Water Sports is owned & operated by the Lightbourns – a Bahamian family who have been in the Bahamas since 1735. Raymond (Ray) Lightbourn learnt to waterski, surf, spearfish and drive boats as a young boy in the Exumas, Harbour Island and Nassau and has never looked back.


Water ski business

In 1978 he opened a water ski business on Paradise Island, Nassau, Bahamas. This was just the beginning of bigger things to come.


Paradise Parasail Ltd

By 1981 what began as a humble venture quickly flourished into a thriving enterprise Paradise Parasail Ltd offered a spectrum of exhilarating water sports activities. Ray's foresight and passion transformed his operation into a comprehensive hub for aquatic adventures, featuring not only parasailing but also sailboat rentals, windsurfing lessons, snorkeling expeditions, and captivating sightseeing tours to the breathtaking Exuma Cays.
