Freeport Shore Excursion: Lucayan National Park Tour

Lucayan National Park Tour

While you’re in port in Freeport, get out of the busy port area and explore a less-crowded part of the island on this shore excursion to Lucayan National Park, home to one of the world's longest explored underwater cave systems. Beautiful, 42-acre (170,000-square meter) Lucayan National Park consists of five ecological zones, as well as caves where Arawak Indians lived before Christopher Columbus discovered the Bahamas.

Stroll through the park and see a variety of wild birds and colorful fish. Walk along a wooden boardwalk to Gold Rock Beach, a fantastic piece of coastline with clear water and soft sand. Look for shells or just relax in this idyllic spot before returning to the cruise ship port.

Our tour guide was Biggy and he did a great job. He was very knowledgable about the history of the island and the Lucayan National Park

The caves were entrances into the underground rivers. The nature trails around the caves are very pretty. The beach was amazing

What a great tour

A great value and a nice way to see The Bahamas. Kevin from Heaven gave us a very knowledgeable tour, including an appreciation for local music. The park and beach took my breath away. Amazing lunch at the restaurant.

Bus driver was excellent: a great job of locating booked customers at the cruise terminal and then providing a great summary history and info session about the island while driving. The locations were as advertised. Overall the tour was even better than expected and it was a great value for the money. It was much cheaper and better than the options provided by our cruise provider.

The tour was everything promised but it did start out weird. There were no instructions on who or where to meet. At the port we asked around and were shuffled from one friendly face to another. We finally found a tour group that made some calls and added us to their group although they did not seem to be expecting us . After that we had a fine time with a terrific tour guide who showed us the ecosystems nd natural history of the island and a spectacular beach right out of the Pirates movie. Finally to a beach club whet we bought the best conch fritters I ever had. He then made a special trip to return us to our dock in plenty of time. So a good experience but some logistical issues. I do wonder what may have happens if this we had not found this tour group in a bustling port. Likely we'd have a very different review.

The best part about this tour BY FAR were the 2 beaches we stopped at: Gold Rocks Beach and one other beach, both private and PRISTINE. This is where Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed, and it was unbelievably gorgeous! The tour guide was very nice and funny, but I wish we would have rushed more through the park tour on our own quickly to spend more time on the beach! We were gone all day and felt that we got a lot for our money!

Once we got past some confusion in regard to overbooking and having to wait for a larger bus, we enjoyed the tour. Biggie our Guide was very informative about local history and information. The caves were small but interesting. The walk to the beach nice, Gold Rock Beach was breathtaking!

The cave is not huge, but most caves on islands are not. All of the bats in it was cool and I loved where they dropped you off for lunch. It was a nice resturant on the beach. I would highly recommend the banana bread and conch fritters!
