What You Can Expect

Freeport Shore Excursion: Lucayan National Park Tour

Lucayan National Park Tour

Once your cruise ship has docked in Freeport, travel out of the busy port area to visit Lucayan National Park on a less crowded part of Grand Bahama. Meet your guide and vehicle at the cruise port for the short ride to the park.

Walk through the vibrant tropical park, viewing a myriad of native birds in the trees and colorful fish in the lagoons. Visit Gold Rock Beach, accessible by wooden boardwalk, to enjoy the sugar-soft white sand and gentle waves lapping the beach. Simply relax or beachcomb, looking for driftwood and unusual shells, enjoying the peace and quiet that comes with escaping the busy area around Freeport.

This park is home to one of the longest explored underwater cave systems in the world. Encompassing 42 acres (17 hectares,) this park includes five different ecological zones. Visit the caves where the island's Arawak Indians lived before Columbus' discovery of the Bahamas.

After approximately 5 hours of exploring this off-the-beaten-path attraction, your guide will return you to the cruise port.

Worry-free shore excursion:
We will make sure of your timely return to Freeport after this shore excursion. In the unlikely case that your ship has already departed, we will arrange transportation to your next port of call. Please see Viator's terms and conditions for full details.

This was our first cruise and first time in the Bahamas. We had a great time on this excursion. The caves were really beautiful and Gold Rock Beach was amazing! The tour guide was very knowledgeable.

The tour guide gave us history on the ride to Lucayan National Park which was informative and allowed you to appreciate the island more. We visited 2 beaches both awesomely beautiful and he even took us on a brief detour on the way back to the port to show us a castle, straw market, and the tourist side of the island. Would definitely recommend this tour, as we were able to relax and enjoy.

Although our thoughts of the national park were different than found, we still enjoyed our excursion. The staff were excellent with their easily identifiable uniforms. They were helpful in getting us in the correct location upon getting off the ship. No problems existed even though we were days late due to our ship being diverted. We would use them again! Thanks for such ease!

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

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.

The park is beautiful and the caves worth seeing. My only issue was the lack of response I received when trying to confirm the excursion with the tour operator on where to meet when we came off the ship, etc. We also did not get to see the second beach because the buses were very late getting out of the port confusion on their part and we had to be back for our ship departure at 2:00. Would have loved not to have been rushed and missed some of this excursion.

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.
