Itinerary

Your educational student tour has officially begun as your flight lands in Nassau. As you descend, be sure to take in the views of the Bahama’s crystal clear waters, flowing streams and waterfalls, and lush forests. A local guide will be waiting to transfer you to your beach bungalow.

After settling into your new home for the week, you have the afternoon to explore. Jump into the warm ocean, walk along the sandy beaches, or unwind at the resort spa. In the evening, you will regroup at the resort restaurant for dinner — an excellent opportunity to get to know your guides and ask lots of questions!

The time has come to explore the capital city that you have been residing in. Begin your drive through the historic town before stopping at the Rum Cake Factory to enjoy pina colada, banana, and chocolate cake (YUM!) Next, arrive at the famous bridge connecting Nassau to Paradise Island. Explore the beaches and enjoy a picnic lunch. Following this, you’ll arrive at Queen’s Staircase to climb all 65 hard-carved steps to experience panoramic views of the city. Your last stop is Junkanoo Beach where you can hang in hammocks, suntan, or go for a swim.

Oink, oink! Hopefully, you love pigs as much as we do, because today you’ll go swimming with them! Jump on a powerboat and enjoy views of beaches, cliffs, and caves on this wild ride. When you arrive at Pg Beach, you’ll enjoy a personal experience with these un-caged animals living in freedom in their own piggy paradise. Splash in the water, run on the beach and hug these loving pigs. You’ll also have the opportunity to see and feed wild iguanas. Enjoy lunch at a beach-front restaurant before heading back to your resort.

The Bahamas thrive on their lobster industry as you will learn today. Join professionals as you dive to the bottom of the ocean, where guides will demonstrate how hunters use spear guns and slings to hunt for these creatures. Don’t worry! No lobsters will be killed in the process. In fact, you will learn about the laws regarding lobster hunting that protect these animals, as well as what conservation efforts are being put in place to prevent their endangerment. You will also have the opportunity to hold lobsters as guides explain the animal’s unique biology and life cycle. Enjoy a vegetarian lunch on the boat before heading back to shore.

Jump on an ATV for an adventurous day! First, you’ll make your way to caves that were inhabited as far back as the 10th century. Learn about the Lucayan Indians’ inspiring cave system. Next, you’ll arrive at a historic village. Take some time to explore its nearby plantations and do some souvenir shopping in its markets. After lunch at a local restaurant, you will continue to the filming location of the movie, “Jaws.” Be sure to take lots of pictures! Enjoy an adventurous ride back into the city.

Jump on a powerboat, for a fantastic final day in the Bahamas. Today you will be island-hopping! Stroll the beaches and snorkel in a magical underwater world. Float over reefs to see exotic fish feeding on plant life. Next, embrace your bravery as you feed local sharks and stingrays with your guide (yikes!). Watch locals prepare an authentic Bahamian conch salad before tasting the final product. Enjoy free time on the island before boating back to Nassau with views of the sun setting on the horizon.

It’s hard to believe how quickly a week can fly by! Take your last morning in the Bahamas to enjoy a buffet breakfast with your guides and friends. Reflect on your favorite memories of the trip – they will last a lifetime. After eating, you will head to the local airport for your flight home.

The Bahamas are known for its relaxing atmosphere, colorful cities, and ocean adventures. From its beaches to forests to historical towns to reefs, the country is a tourist hotspot for a reason. 

On this trip to the Bahamas, you will have an educational and adventurous experience. The trip’s highlights include diving to the ocean’s depths to discover lobsters, feeding sharks and stingrays, and riding ATVs across the island. Book your educational student tour today!
