Rose Island Break
From US$95.00
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Overview
This half-day excursion from Nassau combines a catamaran cruise, snorkeling excursion, and private beach—allowing you to experience multiple island highlights in one day. Board a catamaran and cruise to a private beach on Rose Island, stopping to snorkel and see coral formations, tropical fish, and maybe sea turtles or stingrays. This leaves enough time to relax on the beach or snorkel from shore.
What to Expect
Check-in for our excursion is at least 15 minutes prior to departure, at the Bay Street Marina on East Bay Street. 
At 10:00am sharp we preform a quick safety briefing and then load up our luxury catamaran and head out. First enjoy a short scenic tour of the Nassau Harbour, followed by a high speed run to the nearby Rose Island and surrounding reefs. Travel time is roughly 30 minutes to the first destination, where we take time to snorkel (gear provided). After about 45 minutes of sea exploration, we head to a secluded Rose Island beach for some rest and relaxation. Spend a couple of hours soaking in the sun and sipping a local beer* (after all, staying hydrated is important in paradise). We return to Nassau by 2:30pm. 
Our luxury style catamaran provides shaded, comfortable seating options, sun beds, and the convenience of a bathroom on board.
Tour includes: bottled water throughout the trip, soft drinks, light snacks and *local beers for adults (18+).

Not on this specific trip. We were out there yesterday and they said you have to do a full day trip because their spot to see pigs is much further out.

I believe so, we met at 9h45 and left the port at 10h after a short debrief. I believe we were back around 14h30. No matter what, it is definitely worth it - It felt like we did quite a lot in the 4-ish hours and were left... More
