Surfing in Eleuthera: A short plane ride from Nassau (which, incidentally, is also the answer to every "Where is ____ located" question in The Bahamas) will take you to the surfing paradise of Eleuthera. The waves here are best between October and April, with reef breaks, point breaks (RIP Patrick Swayze), and even beach breaks along the island’s north and east coasts.
Feeding stingrays on Gun Cay: Forget the touristy seaquariums and instead trek to Gun Cay, a tiny, uninhabited islet in the Bimini chain. There, on the island’s most northerly point, you’ll find Honeymoon Harbour, a pristine patch of sand where a school of stingrays has gathered daily for years, having first been attracted to the spot by fishermen cleaning the day's catch. Today, anyone with some bait -- and a little courage -- can have these bad boys eating right out of their hands.
