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.
This was well worth it. Enjoyed snorkeling off the reef and the beach was amazing
My wife and I both thought this was the best part of our entire cruise. Nice private beach with few other people, snorkeling , good food, and great staff. We would do it again if we had the oportunity
SandyToes was a beautiful beach that renewed our interest in visiting the Bahamas. We had not gotten off the ship the last time we docked in Nassau, but we are so glad we gave this excursion a shot. We were worried about getting back to the boat on time, the worry wasn't necessary, we were back in plenty of time. The beach was spectacular, the food was really good. Everybody was friendly and helpful...
I absolutely loved it! Very friendly staff and good food. It was a nice day getaway
Wonderful day at a gorgeous beach. Snorkeling was awesome! And lunch was not bad at all. :-)
The island was beautiful - the people are very nice there and we had fun.
This tour was a lot of fun! The island and the water was so beautiful!! The food and the 2 man band were also very good. Would go again when we go back!
The cruise was a great activity for the entire family! The tranquil sail to Rose Island prepared us for the fun in the sun on the private beach. The local musician kept all in the Bahamian mood, as we pulled up to the dock. The beach area was clean and the water was crystal clear. Snorkels and masks were readily available and small rafts were available for a nominal fee. The lunch was outstanding, plentiful, and well received after a morning of swimming. The sun drenched beach and hammocks were welcomed activities after lunch, then a quick splash in the water before we boarded for the return trip.
A great activity! We plan to book the same activity next year.
The cruise was an unexpected, but a welcome break from other activities!
We enjoyed so much only complaint is not enough time! Rose Island was beautiful, snorkeling was nice and lunch was good too. We would go back again!
This was some of the best money I spent in the Bahamas. Just an awesome laid back day on cool little island. Snorkeled, it was ok, had a few beers at the bar that has an incredible view! Took a nap in a hammock. It was just perfect. Would do it again in a second. I have no idea why anyone would not give this a 5 star review. Oh, did I mention how much the kids loved it? Even more then I did.

This was the last adventureexcursion I did on my vacation. It made me want to move here! I've even been researching trying to find out the process to work and live there for six months. The value for the fee paid was AMAZING. Charming details such as hammocks set up to relax in almost anywhere you wanted, snorkeling available, I did the kayaking and it was GREAT!!! Then relaxing at the beach bar after kayaking, making new friends, sigh.... I'll be back for sure! I recommend saving this excursion for last, otherwise you might want to stay on Rose Island and never leave!
Loved this trip, all age friendly as we had from 1 year up to 55 years of age. Crew was friendly, food was great and what a beautiful location.
This trip was the best part of our Bahamas vacation. Rose Island is a little piece of paradise... quite unlike Nassau. The lunch was delicious and the snorkeling was fun. I would return to Rose Island any day!
My family and I took this trip and thought it was amazing! From 5 to 65 we all had a blast! Worth the money and such a fun day. The boat ride was beautiful and the island was breath taking. We took the guided snorkel tour and then went back later on our own. Lots of pretty fish and sea creatures to see. The beach was beautiful and the lunch was yummy. I would recommend this tour to anyone and would even do it again.
Great tour, beautiful island! Highly recommend! Didn't like the boat very much (too slow for me :)), but had a wonderful day on the island.
All the positive reviews previously posted are absolutely true! This was the best part of our vacation. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Breathtaking views and plenty of places to relax and take in the scenery. I didn't want to leave. I would definitely go back.
