Shore Excursion Options in Nassau, Bahamas

This is a list of shore excursion activities in Nassau that can be done for a fee and usually require prior planning or reservations.  Some do allow last minute reservations for walk-ons.

Day pass to Atlantis Resort

Atlantis Beach Day:

  • Includes: Aquarium tour & habitats, beaches.

  • Excludes: Water park (slides/pools/etc), meals, lockers.

  • Availability is first-come, first-served & based on occupancy rates. Guaranteed availability when booked through the ship or through the ship or

Another Option: Rent a room for a 1-night stay at the Comfort Suites.

  • This gets you the same package as an Aquaventure with the bonus of the room

  • Atlantis is a very busy and very noise venue. During most days the cruise crowds take over the property.

  • Beach day is for the main beach. You will not have access to the Cove or Paradise Beach or the Lagoon Beach.

  • Atlantis is cashless during the daytime. Bring a credit card and ID.

Beach break

There are many beach break options both through the cruise ship and on your own. 

The cruise ship shore excursions can sometimes be rather expensive and leave you with limited times to enjoy the beach due to the logistics of getting large amounts of people from the ship to the beach.  However the benefits to scheduling a beach break through the ship are they guarantee that you make it back on time, typically include food and/or drinks and the transportation to and from the beach is provided.

You can also do a beach break on your own, whether it be through a local provider or literally on your own.  Local providers will provide similar things to what the cruise ships provide although the quality may be different, either higher or lower.  Transportation is sometimes lower however they can bring you to less crowded beach areas and include better food and drinks.  Going to a beach break on your own means you have to do all of the planning and legwork but you get to reap the benefits of your own choosing.  You get to choose the beach, what you want to eat and drink and when you get there and when you leave.  It is also the most flexible and cost effective option.   Visit our Beach Options page to find out more information on the Nassau area beaches and how to do a beach break on your own.

There are 3 trips daily at 9:30am, 12pm and 2:30pm, please arrive at least 15 min prior to departure to be fitted with your equipment.  The price includes equipment (no towels), soft drinks and water.  They accept cash, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and Diners Club. However, there is a 5% additional charge for credit card payment and you pay before you board the boat.  They do not require a non-refundable deposit to hold your reservation, and take your word as your deposit.  All they ask is that you notify us 48hrs in advance if you need to cancel so they can let someone else make use of your seat.

They require a minimum of 2 persons per booking for these trips.  Their boats hold from 8 to 10 passengers depending on size.  Because they cater to small groups, they are better able to give you the special attention you deserve.  If you are a little nervous at first, they will work with you and do everything possible to put you at ease so you can enjoy this experience.  This is one advantage of a small group as opposed to a larger boat which carries 50 or 60 passengers at a time.  Also they are better able to keep an eye on each guest in the water at all times, and their captains are certified life guards so you are in safe hands with Blue Water Watersports.

In the heart of Nassau, more than four acres of lush tropical gardens are inhabited by a variety of animal species, including the national bird of the Bahamas, the Caribbean flamingo. Ardastra Gardens, Zoo and Conservation Centre was created by Jamaican horticulturalist Hedley Edwards in the 1950’s. He developed the picturesque and exotic gardens as a nature preserve, later bringing in flamingoes from the southern Bahamas. In 1980, the gardens were purchased by Norman Solomon, whose passion for wildlife and conservation education inspired him to incorporate more animals into the gardens and create a boutique zoo. Today, thousands of visitors visit annually to marvel at the tranquil, restorative gardens; enjoy close encounters with our collection of over 135 animals; and admire the long-legged flamingo beauties National Geographic has called “Ballerinas in Pink”. The opportunity to enjoy this rare gem will be a highlight for visitors of all ages.

Scuba Diving

Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas

Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas is Nassau's leading full service dive resort. Originally opened in 1978, the operation has grown to a fleet of seven dive vessels, with five of the boats over 40 feet in length. Located on the southwest side of New Providence Island, Stuart Cove's is in the ideal physical location to take advantage of the diverse underwater geological formations. As such, dive sites are available for divers with no experience all the way up to expert-level dives including four new shipwrecks we have helped place in the last two years.

A wide spectrum of diving activities is available. Holiday travelers who have never gone diving before will enjoy the 3-hour "Learn To Dive Program". In this program guests will be introduced to the equipment used in the sport of diving in a swimming pool, receive an introduction into the basics of diving theory, and then complete their first ocean dive. All of this is done under the supervision of a professional dive instructor who is working exclusively with a small group of guests.

Experienced divers can participate in up to 5 dives a day.  Two dives are offered in the morning, with two additional dives in the afternoon. An optional night dive is available on selected evenings as well.  Dive sites encompass steep vertical walls that plummet to 6,000 feet of depth, shallow tropical reefs, 13 different locations containing ship or airplane wrecks, and numerous locations that were used as underwater movie sets for feature films.

The feature activities at Stuart Cove's for our divers is our "Extreme Shark Adventure".  The Shark Adventure program is a 2-tank dive trip that takes divers on an underwater encounter with Caribbean Reef Sharks. On the first dive divers participate in a "free swim" with the sharks along a beautiful wall.  On the second dive, the group forms up in a semi-circle on the 50-foot bottom and watch while a professional shark feeder enters the water with a box of bait.  Upon reaching the bottom, the feeder begins feeding the sharks with the aid of a pole spear.  To say the sharks come close to the divers is an understatement - they are everywhere!

For cruise ship passengers they offer both morning and afternoon 2-tank dives as well as an afternoon Shark dive.  They provide complimentary round trip bus service from the cruise port.  Two key things to determine when scheduling a trip with Stuart Cove is when your ship is docking and when it is leaving.  The morning bus leaves the port at 7:45am (you must be there 15 mins in advance). The afternoon bus leaves for Stuart Cove at 11:45am (you must be there 15 mins in advance).  The morning dives return to the cruise port at 1:15pm, the afternoon dives return at 5:15pm and the shark dive returns at 6:20pm.

Hold on tight and feel the rush of wind in your hair as our boats slice through the crystal clear Bahamian waters at 40mph and above to take you to your destination for the day. Watch the towering landmark of the Atlantis Resort disappear to a memory as we near our first stop...

Pulling in to the secluded Allan's Cay you will meet the first of our neighbors as we pause to provide a tasty breakfast for the protected Allen's Cay Rock Iguana.  A few photo opportunities with these amazing and ancient creatures along with a handful of grapes as payment for their time, and you are ready to launch the boats back into high-speed for the trademark Miami Vice Boat ride up to your own private and secluded island paradise, Ship Channel Cay.

For the thirsty, there is a full bar open to keep you refreshed all day. Stocked with liquor, wines, beers, sodas, juice and plain old water we have something for every taste, and, of course... it's all free.

The Bahamas is renowned for it's lively and beautiful reef areas, and Ship Channel Cay is no exception.  For those who wish to try a spot of snorkeling, there is an amazing drift snorkel just a few meters from the shoreline.  If you've never snorkeled before, don't worry, they will provide you with fins, masks, snorkels and a lesson or two. The guides will be with you every kick of the way - just make sure you don't miss out on this incredible chance to experience nature at its most beautiful.

Our open bar remains this way till it's time to leave - they are delighted to serve you wine, liquor, beers, juices, sodas or just a simple water whenever you feel the urge. 

The island has a seemingly endless beach of soft white sands, gently washed by crystal clear oceans of infinite shades of blue and green.
