It was signed Stephen and Ashley Walko and included a five dollar Bahamian dollar bill.

The note said it was part of their wedding ceremony.

Ashley Walko posted this about the bottle on her Facebook page:

'So after some snorkeling, no sharks but a large manta ray! Did some more kayaking off the beach where we threw out our message in a bottle( of course a rum bottle( Bacardi) there were enough empties from shutting the bar down on Saturday we drank the rum dry from the bar!! So if u find a Bacardi bottle with a note and 5$ Bahamian cash follow the instructions and write back'. — with Ashley Walko.
