Itinerary

You’ll start your Bahamas nautical excursion trip after your arrival in Nassau and dropping off your things at your hotel with a sunset sailing trip. This 2-hour cruise leaves from Atlantis Paradise Island and features dinner and rum punch, soft drinks or water. You can sit back and enjoy the setting sun as it sinks into the crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean. 

Gear up for a day of marine sightseeing aboard a glass-bottom boat. You’ll sail around the Berry Islands, which are mostly uninhabited and feature colorful coral, tropical fish, caverns, wrecks and reefs. Discover secluded coves and long stretches of soft sand beaches. A 600-foot wide blue hole, located on Hoffman’s Cay, is a popular spot for divers and adrenaline seekers.

Paddle past the Out Islands of the Exumas and discover snorkeling, birdwatching, scenic harbors and miles of crystal clear water. You’ll leave from Great Exuma on a single or double ocean kayak. 

Today you’ll be experiencing the unique marine ecology of the Bahamian islands. Along with your guide, you’ll visit a couple of reef systems, learn about the southern stingray and have the opportunity to snorkel around a boat wreck. 

Andros is known as the bonefishing capital of the world. Cast out for tuna, bonefish and other big game fish. Visit a spot called the Tongue of the Ocean for excellent grouper, mahi-mahi and wahoo fishing. Your experienced guide knows all of the best fishing spots.

Today finds you spending time in a private ocean habitat on Blue Lagoon Island. You’ll leave out of Nassau on Paradise Island for a fun and educational experience learning about dolphins and sea lions. Learn about their habits and habitats as well as ocean conservation efforts. After, you can relax along the secluded shores of this private island. Kayaks, paddleboards and water bikes are also available.
