Nassau Shore Excursion: Bahamas Snorkel Adventure

Bahamas Snorkel Adventure

Once your cruise ship docks in Nassau, meet your guide at the port for transfer to the starting point of your marine adventure. 

Board a boat with an experienced captain, then travel to some of the calmest, clearest locations for the best chance at excellent snorkeling. Get a safety orientation from your guide and get fitted for your snorkel gear. Don your provided mask, snorkel and fins and jump in. Float among schools of tropical fish, see live coral and other marine life. 

If the conditions are right, your second stop will be to get an up close and personal encounter with the sea's alpha predator: sharks. Follow your guide into the water to view the sharks swimming calmly below you. You can also stay on the boat to view the sharks in complete safety. 

At the conclusion of your 5-hour shore excursion, you'll be dropped off back at the cruise ship port.

Highly recommend this tour, Rakeem I think was our snorkel guides name was very friendly and welcoming. They picked us up right by the fountain from our cruise ship, the drive to the dive shop is about 45 min but the view getting their was great. It was also nice to see other parts of the island via van. Also met some new friends on our boat!! This excursion was the highlight of our cruise. One pro-tip, print a copy of your voucher don't try to use the electronic version and the sharks aren't tiny little baby sharks, they are BIG.

This trip was amazing. The crew was organized and handled a large group with ease. Our first stop was at a reef where we saw many fish. Our second stop we saw fish and jelly fish and the final stop we actually go in the water with reef sharks. This was awesome to be right in the middle of a school of shark. The crew made certain our safety was first. Then Van returned us to our ship, while enroute he gave us a history of the Bahamas, some interesting facts and also told of other places of interest. I would highly recommend this tour.

My 7 year old and I had a great time snorkeling on both reefs and saw an abundance of tropical fish. It was well worth the price and was the best part of our cruise.

Took the grand kids. They saw lots of fish. Crew on the boat were very attentive to the passengers to make sure they knew the rules for their safety and enjoyment.

We enjoyed this excursion and would highly recommend making reservations with this company rather than signing up with the cruise line snorkel trip options. Tameka and Captain Wendell did a great job and helped make this a positive experience for us.

This was a great excursion! Took my teenage son and his girlfriend. We all had a great time. There was plenty to see and we never felt rushed. Plenty of time was given at each of the stops. The team was very knowledgeable and helpful. There was plenty on space on the boat, and it never felt crowded. The staff made sure we had everything we need, and the equipment was in good condition. Out of the three stops, each was better than the last. Swimming with the sharks was a really cool experience! If you have any tendency towards motion sickness, make sure to take some meds beforehand. Even on a calm day and a smooth boat ride, one of us got a little nauseous. Also, spend the extra money on the fish food. It is great to see all the different types of fish come up to you! Really was a great experience and well worth the money. I'd consider doing it again if ever in Nassau.

My husband and I had a great time at the 2 reefs we were taken to. We saw lots of fish and the reef was beautiful. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They had easy access into and out of the water. We also enjoyed the snorkel time with the sharks. It was so much fun. We can't wait to go back to the Nassau and go to the same place and snorkel again. We are both 60 and we had a great time.

Outstanding!--they were waiting for us outside the cruise ship terminal, very nice people, explained things very clearly. Went to three dive spots, I stayed on top of the water since it was my first time snorkeling
Full of jokes when were about to swim with the sharks.
