Explore Paradise Island and Atlantis

Experience the best of Nassau on this interesting and exciting tour of the island, highlighted by a visit to world-famous Atlantis Resort.

Your Nassau port tour begins when you meet your driver/guide at the pier and get into your air-conditioned vehicle. You will make a stop at the historic Fort Fincastle, a small fort shaped like a paddle-wheel steamer. The fort was built to protect Nassau from invaders, but it never saw warfare. At this location you will have time to explore the fort and the Queen Victoria Staircase, do some light shopping on your own, and take all the photos you want.

You will then travel along Bay Street, the heart of Nassau's shopping district, and home to the native Straw Market. Other highlights include views of the Government House (official residence of the Governor General of the Bahamas since 1801), the Governor's Mansion, and Gregory's Arch. This stone arch was named after Governor John Gregory, who served around 1850. When you pass through the arch on Market Street, you cross the line that divides downtown Nassau from the rest of the country.

Next you will travel to Paradise Island, an island connected to New Providence by two bridges that cross Nassau Harbour. Hog Island Lighthouse, constructed in 1817, is at the western tip of the island and can be seen from the cruise port.

The highlight of Paradise Island is world-famous Atlantis, a magnificent resort with over 3,000 hotel rooms, 20 restaurants, a wide variety of stores, a 123-acre water park, beautiful beaches and the largest casino in the Bahamas. The total cost to construct Atlantis was over $2 billion. Your tour will make a short stop at Atlantis, where you'll have free time to explore the amazing lobby, casino, or the shops. After your free time you will be driven back to your ship.

For those customers who wish to see more of Atlantis, a variety of options are available for purchase at the resort. The "Discover Atlantis Beach Pass" (adults $69 US, children $40 US) provides access to the aquarium, the beach, restaurants where you can purchase food and drink, and the Dig, a maze of interconnected tunnels and chambers with ruins and underwater inhabitants depicting the Lost City of Atlantis. The "Aquaventure Pass" (adults $130 US, children $80 US) provides access to the aquarium, beach, pools, water slides, the Dig, and restaurants where you can purchase food and drink. Those customers choosing to purchase either of these packages or spend more time exploring Atlantis, will want to stay at the resort longer than the tour stop.

Guests wishing to end their tour at Atlantis, will need to arrange a taxi back to the ship pier at their own expense. There are many taxis available at Atlantis and the approximate cost of the ride to the ship pier is $5 US/person. It is up to the guest to make sure they are back to their ship before sailing time. The "Discover Atlantis Beach" and "Aquaventure" Passes are subject to availability and prices are approximate.

Great way to see highlights of Area in a short time. Would have liked more time at Atlantis but I am not sure an entire day would suffice.

Reviewer: Brian Hoyle
We had a GREAT time on the Nassau Town tour. It was neat to see the real sides of Nassau and hear the history. The guide was hilarious and was able to answer all our questions. Van was comfortable, group was small. I liked the convenience of being able to be dropped off at Atlantis or choosing to ride back (we did the latter). Very good value and easy to find off the boat.
