Sail and Snorkel Cruise
Sail & Snorkel Cruise Port 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 this Nassau excursion.
Board your waiting catamaran and set out for 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 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 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.
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.

Guys on the boat were really nice, and made it a great day. The sail out to the reef showed great views of Atlantis and a lot of the working city of Nassau (quite cool to see). Being under sail on the way back was relaxing, and again, a great way to see the island.

This was an amazing catamaran and snorkeling experience. The crew was friendly and very helpful and we were able to go to Rose island which has beautiful snorkeling with a huge variety of fish. Our first mate was a great instructor and a wealth of knowledge, who additionally was very funny. Ended with a very smooth drop off by Senor Frogs where we had a delicious lunch.

We have snorkeled all over the Caribbean and this ranks up there as in if the best trips we have had. The reef they took us to was really nice and large. There were plenty of fish and nice coral. We were not rushed and our favorite part was the man who showed up in a dingy selling fresh coconuts, conch shells, and huge starfish. Do bring your photo ID in addition to your cruise ID...they end tour in Nassau and you need it to get back in port area.
