Exuma Water Sports HISTORY
Exuma Water Sports is owned & operated by the Lightbourns – a Bahamian family in the Bahamas since 1935. Raymond (Ray) Lightbourn learned to waterski, surf, spearfish and drive boats as a young boy in the Exumas, Harbour Island and Nassau.
Water ski business
In 1978 he opened a water ski business on Paradise Island, Nassau, Bahamas.
Paradise Parasail Ltd.
By 1981 the business expanded to parasailing and became Paradise Parasail Ltd. The company grew and became a full fledged water sports operation with parasailing, jet ski, sailboat, windsurfer rentals and instruction, snorkeling and sightseeing tours and excursions to the Exuma Cays. Justin started really early!
