What You Can Expect

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.

As luck would have it, the cruise line changed the day that we were to be in Nassau and we had to call up and switch dates. Not only did the date change but the time was shortened as well. We were set to cancel but they were nice enough to modify our excursion by having us go to two out of three snorkel sites, then they sent a private motor boat to the main boat to bring us back to shore and then one of the assistants drove us back to the ship. We felt like royalty!
Snorkeling was amazing. We saw an abundance of sea life. Highly recommend this tour.

Everything about this tour was fantastic! The crew members were funny and knowledgeable, the snorkeling and swimming with sharks felt safe and most of all fun!! If u can, buy a waterproof pouch for your phone, the view down there is unexplainable! I wish I would’ve done the the same.

I can’t believe how amazing it is down under. It’s another world. The crew members are very knowledgeable and very professional. I will use them again when i go to the Nassau

Excellent trip. It was quite busy, but plenty of staff to help everyone.
This trip is all at sea, so if your not too good with small boats and choppy water, it's not for you. The crew were excellent and very helpful. Safety was paramount. The kit was clean and looked fairly new. Best bit was being in the water with sharks swimming under you just a few foot away. All done safely with clear safety instructions.

This excursion is highly recommended. The staff was great and helpful. The price is far better then any other excursions similar. Great locations to snorkel at and plenty of fish and sharks to swim with. I should also point out that the shark swim is optional but is definitely worth it!

Very fun tour. Three stops, two for snorkeling - buy fish food before you leave the dock! then the last stop was to swim in the water with sharks! The sharks came up to the boat when we arrived someone, not mentioning any names was sea sick over the side and the shark were attracted to it. Once that gentleman was moved into a safe place, the sharks paid attention to the chum bait cage our crew dropped about 20 feet below. We watched the sharks swim around and smell the cage so they didn't pay much attention to us above. We were only in the water 5 minutes, so get your GoPro ready fast! I was lucky to be first off the boat and last one aboard, so more time in the water.
We also got to see the small island that has been in many movies, such as Pirates of the Caribbean. Nice adventure.

This was a great tour and I would highly recommend. The tour bus picked us up from the pier where the cruise ship docked. The drive was a bit farther away from the main tourist area. Once arrived the facility was very nice, had bathrooms, changing rooms and a gift shop. We boarded the boat and had 3 stops to snorkel. The reefs were decent and I would recommending buying fish food prior to leaving at the gift shop, definitely worth all the fish all around you! The last stop was the shark swim which was great. The sharks are pretty far below you so it wasn't too scary. The guide took my camera and swam down next to them to take some photos up close for me. After we got out of the water they had the sharks come up closer to the boat with food and they were very wild. The boat returned to the facility and the bus was on time taking us back to the cruise boat.
