This was the highlight of our cruise! To see the change in color of the water as we approached was magnificent! My husband has trouble walking and snorkeling allows him to enjoy the tropical fish and beautiful reefs.
The snorkeling was an experience of a lifetime! Not only did we view a vast number of colorful fish and coral, the shark encounter was more than what was expected. The tour captain and crew, steered us toward a large school of reef sharks and gave all an opportunity swim and take close-up photos. Of course, there was some apprehensiveness, but the deck crew eased everyone's nervousness. Overall, the snorkel adventure exceeded all expectations. The transfer bus arrived on time, and the drive portion of the tour departed and returned as expected.
This excursion was perfect! Everyone was super nice. Our first stop was breathtaking. I have been many places snorkeling, and Stuart Cove was by far the most beautiful. The reef was incredible. We went in the afternoon and the sun was right above us, which made picture taking perfect because of the clarity of the water. The second stop was not as nice as the first, but still awesome. I highly recommend getting fish food! It was insane having thousands of fish surround you, which makes for awesome bragging pictures. My boyfriend went nuts for the sharks. There were roughly 10-12 grey Caribbean reef sharks circling us for 20 mins. It was the most memorable experience we have had together.
Snorkeling in Nassau was great. The bus picked us up on time and delivered us right back to the dock where our ship was docked. The staff was excellent. Very friendly and explained how to use the equipment wonderfully. Getting to dive with the sharks was the highlight. What an adrenaline rush.
The snorkeling was OK but the shark part was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We viewed at least 30 sharks as they swam around the bait box below us, then after we got out of the water, they were fed from the boat. The crew on the boat was very friendly and cheerful.
This venture is a must do when in Nassau!! I highly suggest that you take your heart medication before swimming with the sharks. It was a rush!
What a GREAT captain and staff. Shark experience was amazing!
This was an AMAZING snorkel trip. Swimming with the sharks was a once in a lifetime experience. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful.
It was my first snorkel adventure and I was nervous at the first stop but then I got over it by second stop and really enjoyed myself. The last stop was my first time to swim with the sharks. It was great.
Very professional and nice driver on the pickup with description of places that we drove past. The crew on the boat were very informative and helpful. We're so lucky for seeing dolphins 3 times during a half day trip. I regret I did not have the camera with me. Not an ordinary snorkel at all!
Great day trip. The water was a little choppy, but swimming with the sharks was the best!
Excellent snorkeling adventure- Two issues: Pickup from our small B and B was sketchy and we tried to personally drive to the place in our private vehicle for the morning session and now one knew where it was - on the other side of the island opposite of paradise island - fortunately they honored our pass no problem and the afternoon was wonderful. Snorkeling with the sharks was quite exhilarating!!
scenic ride to the boat at Stuart cove. well organized. the thee divers on the boat good guides. three stops to snorkel. we did see sharks on the last stop. no food or snacks on the boat as we have experienced with some such snorkeling trips in cayman, hawaii, jamaica and turks and caicos. but this was well worth taking.
This was okay. Feeding the fish seemed not the natural look we were expecting. As well the baiting of the sharks. I guess we know why you called it adventure but we really would have preferred natural snorkeling without the adventure.
We enjoyed our time snorkeling, and got to see lots of sea life.....
One of the most affordable excursions in Nassau and totally worth it. The sites were beautiful and the guides were pleasant, knowledgeable and entertaining.
We had to wait for a late family. That cut the snorkeling time short.
Everyone was very nice and the snorkeling was fun. Took us to some nice areas to see a variety of fish. Only dislike was at the end when getting in the water with the sharks, they needed a better system then just holding onto a tangled rope to view the sharks. I would recommend this excursion!
The trip was great, however we ended up missing the shuttle because the driver of the shuttle was not familiar with "Viator". When we approached the van thinking that it was the right tour and showed our paperwork, he stated that was not his tour. The van left, and we realized that we in fact missed our tour. Luckily, I was able to contact Viator by phone due to some nice people at the Nassau Taxi stand, and they booked us on the afternoon excursion. However our morning was kind of shot after that. So make sure you are familiar with the local service that is providing the actual tour so you know what transportation to look for. Otherwise, the snorkeling was fun, the sharks came closer than expected - scary fun! And we got some great albeit overpriced souvenirs.
Even though the water was rough, the crew did their best to keep everyone comfortable. I was doubtful we would see any sharks but we did. Pretty cool!
