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 excursion 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 on the first part your tour, 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 of this excursion 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.

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.

Sorry I can't give this 5 stars. Tour guide repeated himself, both in ground traveled and narrative. Having been to Nassau in the past, I was disappointed that more of the shoreline/perimeter of the island was not included. On the plus side, guide gave us some valuable info re Atlantis
