Exumas wisdom and advice please

I'm taking a Lagoon 38 from Great Exuma to Nassau in early November. Last time there was 1970. Guessing it has changed. Please suggest "must" places to stop to snorkel, eat or drink. Places to avoid. Am intimately familiar with the Leewards and Windwards and somewhat familiar with the Abacos, just haven't gotten back to the Exumas. Any/all advice would be very welcome! Thank you in advance.

Little Farmers Cay - Ty's Restaurant. Really good food and potent rum punch, nice people, great sunset. We "park" our Lagoon 450 right in front of the restaurant in 1.8 meter and watch the sun go down with drink in hand on the porch.

Big Major Spot - Go into Staniel Cay for a drink or some supplies. Feed the pig on the beach. They will swim right up to your dinghy.

Left over vegetable scraps are great. We always keep our compost seperate until we can discard it into deeper water. We also feed the pigs and Iguanas with them when we have a chance.

Sitting in the Brigantines now in beautiful weather.
