Sail and Snorkel Cruise
Nassau Snorkeling & Catamaran Sailing Tour
There's something special about the serenity of a Sail and Snorkel Cruise across the blue waters of the Bahamas. With the whisper of the waves on the hull and the gentle warm ocean breezes across the bow, you will soon feel your cares slipping away on Nassau tours like this.
Board your waiting catamaran and set out on an adventure to one of the most beautiful reefs near Nassau. The boat features spacious deck area, shaded as well as open to the warm Bahamian sun, so there is a place for everyone attending this Nassau catamaran excursion. The boat also has two bathrooms on board. As you sail to the reef, your crew will pass out the included snorkeling gear and give instruction on snorkeling.
Depending on the sea and weather conditions that day, your captain will set a course to a location where you will have the best Nassau snorkeling experience. Upon arrival at the snorkeling spot, your crew will join you in the water to answer any questions or concerns you might have about snorkeling before you explore the wonderful underwater world of coral and marine life. Snorkeling is from the boat in water that will be over your head. Flotation vests are required while in the water and come in large and small sizes. You'll need to provide your own vests for small children and infants. Time at the reef is approximately 60 minutes. As water temperature is usually 75-80 degrees in the winter and warmer in the summer months, wetsuits are not required or provided.
After your time in the water, climb back on board via the snorkeler friendly "Stairway to the Sea," and feel the wind in your hair as your catamaran makes the approximate one-hour sail towards home. You will be treated to a complimentary rum punch, fruit punch or water. There is a cash bar on board for guests wishing additional drinks or snacks. The boat will make a stop near the cruise pier area on the way back into port for those guests wishing to go back to their ship. Or you can stay on as the boat returns to Paradise Island where you can disembark near the Atlantis Resort. Guests disembarking on Paradise Island are responsible for their own transportation back to the cruise pier at their own expense.
Please Note: It is the captain's intention to use the sails as often as possible. If for any reason the captain feels the use of sails is not safe or conducive to a prompt return to the cruise pier, whether it is related to weather, mechanical, or any other unforeseen situation, they will use the motor. Additionally, prescription masks are not offered. Children the ages of 5 and under are free, must be accompanied by an adult at all times and must bring their own life jackets to participate on this tour.

This was the first excursion that I had ever done so I was a little nervous to how smooth it would be. I was pleasantly surprised how relaxing and enjoyable it was. The sail boat ride was smooth. I especially enjoyed riding in the net over the water. The snorkeling was good as well as the snorkeling equipment. I would do it again.

Our group had a wonderful day on the Cruise. The captain/guide were friendly, helpful, and fun! The snorkeling was a beautiful experience. Our guide fed the fish as we snorkeled and we were able to see amazing sea life. After snorkeling, we sailed around the ocean drinking cocktails and listening to music. One of the best days of our trip! Thank you!!
Highly recommend this snorkel and sail excursion. The staff was awesome, the boat spacious and the snorkeling beautiful. Saw many fish and stingray on the reef without being crowded. The sail was very enjoyable and smooth with a well stocked bar to help!

This is an ideal excursion to take from the cruise ship. It’s close (we walked right to the dock), safe, the crew was great, and the snorkeling spot they took us to was beautiful. You’re guaranteed to see amazing marine life. I didn’t expect it to be so scenic & my only regret was not bringing an underwater camera or GoPro.
We had an outstanding experience on the Seahorse sail and snorkel cruise! The boat was perfect, the gear was in great condition, and the staff was outstanding. Sitting in the sun watching the waves as we sailed back to the dock was as much fun as snorkeling. We would book this excursion again in a heartbeat. Thank you!
