Paradise Island & Atlantis Shore Excursion

Experience the best of Nassau on this interesting and exciting tour of the island, highlighted by a visit to the world-famous Atlantis Resort.

Your Nassau excursion starts when you meet your guide/driver at the pier and get into your air-conditioned vehicle. One of your stops will be at the historic Fort Fincastle, a small fort shaped like a paddle-wheel steamer. The fort was built to protect Nassau from invaders; luckily it never saw warfare. At the fort, you'll have time to explore, climb the Queen Victoria Staircase, do some light shopping on your own, and take all the photos you want.

After marveling at Fincastle, travel along Bay Street, the heart of Nassau's shopping district, and home to the native Straw Market. Some 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'll also cross the line that divides downtown Nassau from the rest of the country.

Following this, 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 located at the western tip of the island and can be seen from the cruise port.

The highlight of Paradise Island is without a doubt, the 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 taken 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.

Nassau excursion
December 29, 2021
What a nice excursion, the staff was extremely friendly well knowledged on the island and it’s history as I took this excursion with my daughter she absorbed all of the knowledge of the island, when we return back to the United States my daughter said that that was a most exciting point of her trip as she came back and recited all of the knowledge that she received from the guide I was extremely impressed that she retained all that information. The Atlantis aspect of the trip was not what I was expecting for me Atlantis did not live up to the hype as I see on TV but we all know how that goes. But I would definitely recommend this excursion to anyone visiting the Nassau area!!

We were very impressed by our tour guide and comfortable bus as we were given a very nice and informative tour of Nassau in the Bahamas. Unfortunately, when we got to Atlantis, the facility there wouldn’t let the tour bus in, (Not our driver/guides fault) so we didn’t get to visit Atlantis. Our guide bought us all a local beer to compensate for not getting to visit Atlantis. Very nice gesture!

Little rough in the beginning trying to find out where to go and meet the excursion but a very nice excursion. The driver/leader was very fun but also informative, well worth the time for those of us who don't snorkel or hike

We saved a lot of money booking this directly, rather than through Carnival. We had a great day, saw a lot of the island and learned a great deal from our driver. I would recommend.

Great Excursion

Discover Nassau Town & Atlantis was a great tour for us. We were able to see the different neighborhood & historical landmark of Nassau without too much walking. Our driver was very friendly & very knowledgeable. He showed us the highlights & told us the history of the Island. If you only have a limited time in the island this will be a good tour to take.
