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.

Tis was a wonderful day. The staff is friendly and courteous, the island is beautiful and we were kept informed about activities quite well. There's plenty of time to relax on the beautiful beach, snorkel or go tubing. Lunch was substantial and good. I'll definitely do this again!

We were really impressed by the organization of this trip. There were only about 20-30 people on this trip and we had the island to ourselves. It was so relaxing basking in the sun, staring out into the ocean. It was a total chill day. Lunch was plentiful and tasty. After lunch we took a nap in the hammocks that were scattered about and overlooking the water. There were chickens, roosters, chicks and peacocks on the island too. We didn't do the scuba diving, but this had to be one of the best and most relaxing activities on our entire trip. Go, go, go!

This was a fantastic trip! The beach was beautiful and it was like being on your own private island. My kids loved the hammocks spread out among the flora, and the lunch was really good as well. The boat ride to the island was very choppy that day, and I assume that they may not be able to get you to the island on days when the seas are a a little rougher. We did this tour as a separate excursion from a cruise ship and I'm so glad we did! There are other people with you on this island, but not as bad as being on an excursion booked through the cruise ship. I would absolutely recommend this trip!

AMAZING ISLAND. This was the single best excursion I have ever been on. I almost hesitate to tell how enjoyable our day on Rose Island was because we want to come back soon and we loved the privacy. Relax on the most amazing white sand beach, snorkel on a gorgeous living reef, enjoy a perfect margarita while you lounge in a hammock overlooking the ocean. This place is a slice of paradise.

The only bad thing I can say about this trip is that we didn't get to stay long enough. What a great day! This is a must do if you are visiting Nassau. The crew, the island, even the food was perfect. Can't wait to revisit.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

We truly enjoyed this partial day trip. the boat ride was very fun and informational. the tour guides were very knowledgeable and fun and kept us laughing. Snorkeling was also fun just not a huge variety of sea life to view but overall it was a great outing for the money with lunch included. My teenagers had a lot of fun too.

SJ and all the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming! Unbeatable location! Plenty of space and things to do for every age. Very beautiful beach, you could stay or wander off to a more secluded beach area to be by yourself if you wanted. However, there may be some mobility issues for some folk. There are steps to climb from the boat and to the beach. One if the best day trips I have every been on! The food was well prepared and there was plenty of it! I have told everybody about this day trip and will be back! Thanks for a great day guys!!!!
