We booked this excursion looking for a relaxing quiet getaway that is exactly what we got. Even with 4 ships in port the island was not crowded. Lounge chairs and umbrellas are included and they are in pristine condition. For an additional fee you could go into the water with the dolphins or stingrays. The island was very clean and the operators were very professional and accommodating. This was a great value and I would book it again if I returned to Nassau.

Excellent place to relax and swim in the Caribbean waters. White sandy beaches friendly staff. You can swim with dolphins or feed the Sting rays for an additional price. There’s also food and beverages, no need to pack a lunch. Every chair has a umbrella.

The island was lovely, but it was windy, so no kayaking, and snorkeling was in a small area. If you wanted to have a dolphin or manta ray experience, those were also available at extra cost. Staff on the island was excellent, and the strolling band members were excellent artists. Food was good, but expensive if not part of the package. A bar was available for mixed drinks and sodas. An upgrade to the experience onsite afforded you with a more private area of beach. There were plenty of beach chairs, and a small shop for souvenirs, along with the equipment and cabana rental buildings. The boat ride to the island was pleasant and scenic. If you want a nice day at the beach, this is a good option.

The island was beautiful, the beach was quiet and clean, the food was average and the drinks were $$. I really was looking forward to the heated pool that was advertised because it was December and the ocean was a bit too cool for me.

At first quite concerned that we were the only two taking this excursion but had a ferry boat all to ourselves, great loungers and meal provided in an ideal setting, will probably book the same excursion if we return to the Bahamas in the fuyure.
Quick ferry ride to beautiful white sand and crystal clear waters. Did this excursion with three kids, which loved the water, but would have liked it as an adults only trip. Food is a bit pricey, $15. for a hamburger. Bar and lounge chairs area were very nice. Stingray and dolphin area are offered for additional price. Small gift shop, also has a pool.

To meet up for this excursion we had a short 20 min walk from the cruise port. The 20 min boat ride was rather slow but offered nice views of the cruise ships as we left the port. Sit on the top deck of the boat for the best breeze. Once we finally reached the beach, it was very nice. It was not overly crowded. There were plenty of chairs and umbrellas for everyone. The water was calm and crystal clear. My kids were able to easily swim, and the protected area was fairly shallow. We took our own masks and snorkels and were able to see plenty of fish. There is an area to order food and drinks. Unfortunately, our ship was not in port very long, so we were only there a couple of hours. We did not try the food, but we did have a couple of cocktails that were nice and refreshing. There was also a pool, but we stayed in the ocean so I can't comment on it. They had 2 separate areas for dolphin or stingray encounters for extra charges. We opted out of that as well.
We found the boat easily to get to the island. The island was very peaceful, clean and loads of chairs. Restaurant is expensive but food was good. I would do this again!
Very nice island and beach area. Chairs, food, drink, restroom all easily available.
