What You Can Expect

Nassau City Scavenger-Hunt Adventure

Explore Nassau on a scavenger hunt

Make your way to Rawson Square in downtown Nassau roughly 15 minutes before your scheduled start time. After you’ve registered with the race director, you’ll be divided into teams of three to six people and receive a map marked with 40 points of interest. See the Itinerary for a sample list of places marked on the map.

Get a full briefing from the race director on the rules of the scavenger hunt, and then come up with an awesome team name to intimidate your competitors. You’ll also want to make sure at least one member of your team has a digital camera or camera-ready smartphone.

Once all teams are ready and you’ve been given the green light, set off to begin the hunt. You have 1.5 hours to visit as many of the sites on the map as possible. The order in which you hit the sites isn’t important, but your team must stay together throughout and you must answer a question or complete a challenge at each site to acquire points.

The scavenger hunt finishes at Pompey Square, where all of the teams’ score are tallied. If your team has secured the most points and followed the rules along the way, you’ll nab the prize. But if you break the rules, another team will swoop in and claim the prize.

The rules include:
  • Don’t leave the starting location until you’ve received instruction from the race director
  • Teams arriving more than 15 minutes late to the hunt forfeit their right to the prize
  • Obey all traffic laws and do not commit any crimes to complete the challenges (remember, it’s just a game)
  • Teams that arrive after the 1.5-hour time period concludes receive a 5-point deduction for every minute late

We loved this excursion. It was a fun and competitive way to see the sights of the city. We had 6 of us that split into 3 groups of 2 in each group and us old people won the whole thing! It helps to have map reading skills that us old people have and not rely on Siri all the time : Our guide was delightful and gave very good instructions and a great prize at the end. I would definitely recommend.

What a great experience! We were a group of ten, ranging in age from seven to fifty something, who came in on a Royal Caribbean Cruise. We had just had our beach day at Royals private island and we were looking for something a little more adventurous, and a little less expensive, than hanging at Atlantis for the day. Also, I really like to get the flavor of the places I visit, and being in a resort didnt really accomplish that. We were a little concerned about our safety as we were not familiar with the area and were travelling with kids, but Islandz Tours was very helpful and reassuring with our questions they also caught that we booked half of our group for the wrong day, thank you!. Our tour guide, Joelle, was fun and helpful and kept us in line. You have to be somewhat physically fit enough to navigate hills, steps and about five to six miles of walking/running adventure. We learned so much about Nassau in ninety minutes! Some of the higher points gave us breathtaking views of our ships and the harbor. The locals were very helpful whenever we asked questions. Some of the sites required taking a picture or completing a task, which the kids really got into. In the end, my group lost to the other group due in part to not understanding that some questions were worth more than others but the winning group got a generous amount of local wares as a prize. We didnt find the rum cake, though. And we still had plenty of time and money for lunch and shopping in the afternoon! I am so glad we booked this adventure, I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Nassau for something a little different.

This is so much fun! A cheap and fun way to explore and learn about Nassau. They give you a map and a time limit to collect as many points as possible towards winning the scavenger hunt. We traveled on foot very quickly sometimes jogging, and still only saw probably 75 of the sites! I would recommend doing the earliest tour so afterwards you still have time to explore and eat before the last ferry returns to paradise island.The locals were very kind along the way helping us with directions. I would not recommend doing this tour with small children, it is a lot of walking and to make it worth your time you have to be somewhat fast paced. If you win, you also get some awesome local prizes. Fun, safe, affordable, if we ever return I would love to do it again!

Our family had a blast on this adventure. We have four kids, aged 6-13, and everyone enjoyed the competition and adventure running around downtown Nassau and learning about the history. We'll be looking for something like this on all our vacations. Just be aware, there are not a lot of sidewalks.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2016

There was only one other team on this excursion. We had fun, it was hot, lots of walking. We were given a map and had a fixed amount of time to visit as many designated spots on the map as possible. I would do it again.
