Bacardi Distillery

Established in 1962, this distillery produces most of the rum sold on the island. The free tour take about half an hour, after which you get a chance to sample some free cocktails and, of course, buy lots of cheap rum at their gift shop. Tours may be cancelled if less than 10 people show up, so call ahead.

Stuart Cove's Aqua Adventures

On the southern part of the island, they run diving and snorkeling tours, including some with sharks.
