Maybe Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes, but in this half-day adventure, you get to snorkel with them on your Nassau excursion. Maybe even sharks, too!
After being picked up on the pier for your Nassau excursion, you will transfer to the dive shop, 45 minutes away. Upon arrival, you will check in and get equipment. Once everyone is set, you will board the twin-engine boat designed for snorkeling. It also offers a large upper sun deck for relaxing during the short rides between sites, a broad beam (width) so you have lots of room, and a large platform in the rear for easy entry and exit. It also has fresh drinking water, freshwater showers, and storage for all snorkeling equipment on board to make the trip more comfortable.
During your approximately three hours on the boat, you will visit an undersea extravaganza of living coral and tropical marine life. You will be swimming with schools of colorful fish in the shallows of Nassau's famous reefs, Hollywood movie sets, or mysterious sunken shipwrecks. Each trip takes advantage of multiple and diverse underwater sites. Your captain will choose two of the clearest and calmest locations to begin your snorkeling adventure, based on the water and weather conditions that day. Each snorkel stop is approximately 40 to 50 minutes in duration.
If the weather permits, and your fellow passengers have the nerve, you may snorkel with one of the most magnificent and misunderstood creatures of the sea: sharks! Snorkel with your guide as the sharks swim calmly below you, or, if you prefer, watch from the boat.

Great trip. Highly recommend. Trip was well run and organized. Pick up at the cruise ship dock was easy. Staff was great. Swimming with the sharks was amazing and educational. Saw a more beautiful part of Nassau other than the where the cruise ships dock
Een super gave ervaring! Neem wel 2 handdoeken mee, want het kan koud zijn! En er is geen eten, alleen water! Super vriendelijk personeel, heel gaaf!
Great Trip With a little boat to the bahamas reef, with shark encounter
Reviewer: Alpharetta Fun
This excursion is a once in a lifetime experience. Swimming with sharks will always be on the top of my life thrills list. It was awesome and a must do while in the Bahamas. Completely worth the long bus trip ride and price. It was awesome!!!
* Guides were fantastic, fun, talkative, and experienced. Couldn't have asked for more! * The shark swim was SO worth it! Amazing, once in a life-time experience. I got some amazing underwater shots after I got over my initial fear of getting into the water! * They provided complimentary water provided on boat, while hot dogs/burgers were being sold at the dive shop for decent prices. * We brought our own equipment, but theirs was in good condition and seemed to work well for all the other passengers. --------- Complaints: * Both reefs we went to junior reefs.. still an amazing adventure, but not a huge array of fish. They have multiple reefs that they choose from/go to, so your experience may be different. * We forgot our sunscreen back on the ship... Sunscreen at the shop would have cost $26! A crazy price that we opted not to pay. * The contracts you sign... while a necessity, they are scary in how they are worded. While our guides did a great job, were VERY experienced, and had our safety first in their minds -- you literally sign away EVERY right to sue, even if something happens due to employee negligence. The extent that the contracts went to seemed unnecessary.
