The boy reportedly suffered an injury to his right leg and was taken to a hospital on the island. He is said to be stable.
Police said the circumstances of the incident are under investigation.
This is the second shark attack in the Bahamas in about a month. An American tourist was killed while paddleboarding near a resort in December.
A lifeguard reportedly witnessed the attack and pulled the woman, who suffered serious injuries to the right side of her body, to shore. Lifesaving measures were unsuccessful and the woman was pronounced dead.
While the Bahamas has seen two shark attacks in about a month, it is not the location where most shark bites occur.
