What You Can Expect

Freeport Shore Excursion: Deadman's Reef Snorkeling and Beach Escape

Soak up the sun in Freeport!

Your shore excursion starts at the Freeport cruise port, where you'll meet your guide and head to your coach for the 12-mile (20-km) drive west towards Deadman's Reef.

Located on the southwest coast of Grand Bahama, Deadman's Reef is an off-the-beaten-path stretch of coastline where you can relax without the crowds and vendors found on the better-known beaches. You have about three hours to enjoy the beach at your leisure.

Your guide is on hand to provide you with a mask, snorkel and fins and give you some tips on snorkeling safety. Then just walk straight into the water and snorkel right off the shore! Deadman’s Reef is one of Grand Bahama's top off-shore reefs, home to marine creatures like colorful fish, shellfish, sea turtles and even dolphins.

If you’re not into snorkeling, you can still spot some marine life by simply walking out into the crystal-clear water and watching the fish swim by. And when you need a snack or refreshing beverage, pop into the beach bar for a conch burger, hot dog or lobster salad, or maybe a piña colada or other tropical drink.

When your beach time is up, you’ll be driven back to the cruise port.

This tour was amazing!

We had a great time exploring Freeport at Deadman’s Reef! Our tour guides were excellent, explaining many of the wonderful details and facts from the island and were extremely friendly. The beach itself was nice and quiet, the water clear and beautiful. We didn’t get to explore much due to being there in December, it was a bit cold but we did get in for a little. We saw a stingray hanging out on the beach front and there was thousands of jelly fish, [they didn’t sting] which was quite awesome, I have never gotten to swim with jelly fish! The kids loved picking them up! There were also some tropical fish closer into shore, but it was too cold for us to venture out to the main reef, I am sure it was filled with beautiful fish. There was a place for you to grab food and drinks if you were hungry. There was also other things you could rent, such as kayaks, paddle boards, floatation devices, and etc. It was a great trip and I would recommend it to anybody!
