Full description
Enjoy a half-day of sailing and snorkeling on a catamaran that was built for Caribbean sea conditions and weather. You’ll experience the vibrant, aquatic world of the Sea Garden conservation area, as you snorkel on the coral reef system off Nassau. You’ll sail through historic Nassau harbor, admiring the backdrop of the famed Atlantis Hotel, rustic mail boats bobbing in the water, and panoramic views of the island. If the winds are favorable, the captain will turn off the engines and hoist the sails, and you’ll be on your way to the snorkeling site. Note that the operator supports the preservation of the local coral reef system, aware that healthy coral reefs are the foundation of many tropical ecosystems and provide livelihood, food, enjoyment, and cultural significance for millions of people around the globe.

Meeting point

If you are staying at a hotel or residence, the tour departs from the Paradise Island ferry terminal across the street from the Atlantis, directly behind Margaritaville. If you are arriving on a cruise ship, the tour departs next to the terminal building at the end of the cruise pier area. From your ship, walk towards the Festival Terminal building. Do not enter the building. Look to the left of the building and you will see a green gate. A member of the tour operator's staff will be standing by the gate wearing a Royal Blue shirt along with a hand held sign. From here, they will escort you to the boat.

I’d go 10 more times if I could.

Just the right amount of silly thrown in to the otherwise professional staff. The snorkeling was absolutely mind-blowing. We got a quick lesson on some Bahamas trivia type knowledge and we were encouraged to ask questions. The first mate was definitely our favorite part of the experience. It stands out as our favorite memory on our week-long vacation in Nassau. Book it now! You won’t be disappointed!

Great trip!

Unfortunately, the excursion did not start until 45 minutes later than specified and lasted one hour less than specified. The large group was first led from the cruise ship to the catamaran and you had to live with the remaining places, otherwise a wonderful trip with a great crew and a very nice snorkeling experience.
