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.

The tour of Nassau was great! The things that made it great were 1) the tour guide & 2) the bus that we rode in. The guide was very friendly, kind, & thoughtful. He was really knowledgeable of the history of the town as well as current information. The bus was clean & comfortable as the A/C worked great on a hot day. The tour of Atlantis wasn't very good. Our tour guide dropped us off & came back to get us 30 minutes later. Buses, taxies, etc weren't allowed to wait at the drop-off point. Once inside we were on our own to take a really quick look at whatever we could in the short time we had. We didn't have a clue which way to go to make the most of our brief stop. On a positive note, the guide was back when he said he would be.

Was very cautious about not booking with the cruiseline BUT was so surprised! Ri'chard was and excellent tour guide! We learned the best parts of Nassau, got to see lots of history and Atlantis. It was just enough of each site to not be bored or overwhelmed! Will definitely recommend this excursion! AND again, Ri'chard was amazing, knowledgeable and entertaining.
