What You Can Expect

Rose Island Day Trip by Boat from Nassau

Snorkel off the shore of Rose Island!

Make your way to the Paradise Island Ferry Terminal to catch your boat to Rose Island.

Climb aboard and enjoy a welcome cocktail while finding the perfect spot on board to watch the shoreline of Nassau recede as you sail away. 

Upon arrival at Rose Island, choose from an array of activities. Simply find a sunny or shady place on the pristine beach to relax and read a book or take a nap. Sidle up to the beach bar and indulge in a drink or 2 while listening to some island rhythms (own expense). Don snorkel gear and take to the sea to explore the underwater world bustling with living coral and schools of brilliantly colored tropical fish. Stroll down the island's winding paths and wade in the tidal pools. 

Your guide will organize group activities like beach volleyball and dizzy lizard, or you can rent a float or kayak. Sign up for a guided snorkeling tour or watch a fish-feeding show. All additional activities are at your own expense. 

Sit down for a buffet lunch on the pavilion overlooking the gorgeous harbor. See a sample buffet lunch menu in the Itinerary section. Savor the local flavors, accompanied by complimentary lemonade and a fully stocked cash bar. Then, stretch out in a hammock under a palm tree or lounge on the palm-shaded deck.

At the end of your remote tropical island adventure, enjoy the cruise back to Nassau.


Sample buffet-style menu:
Vegetable pasta salad
Mixed green salad with select dressings
Bahamian peas and rice
Fresh BBQ chicken
Hot dogs
Fresh baked rolls

The tour itself was great! The weather wasn't the most hospitable but it was still okay...definitely would have been a different experience had the weather been more cooperative. The staff were all very nice and the lunch was delicious! I would recommend some type of small dessert offering. Well worth the money for sure.

Highly recommendable trip. Nice relaxing and very excotic island. Wouldnt mind staying there for a longer period of time. Coming from the cold Skandinavia/Denmark, - we just enjoyed every minute.

This was by far the best thing we did while we were in the Bahamas Honestly it was the only part of our vacation that felt like we were far from home Paradise Island and Nassau are very commercial and this was a nice break. The boat ride out was a little rougher then I would have liked but I'm not a fan of boats to start with. My only complaint about the whole experience was that I wished we could have stayed longer. This is a great outing for anyone. Just be advised there are quite a few stairs.

Definitely worth the cost. The island was very nice, I felt like Gillian would join us for the delicious lunch which was provided as part of the price. Very tropical, very friendly staff.
