Freeport Shore Excursion: Kayak Turtle Park
From US$125.78
Low Price Guarantee
Nature lovers and adventurers appreciate escaping busy Freeport to kayak with sea turtles on a remote location off the east end of Grand Bahama island. Spot sea stars, watch turtles in their natural habitat, and enjoy the pristine surroundings on this guided shore excursion tour that includes transportation to and from the Freeport cruise port.
What to Expect
Get picked up from the Freeport cruise port, where you transfer to a boat and cruise 4 miles to Sweetings Cay. Upon arrival at this remote location off of Grand Bahama’s east end, you can't miss the plentiful sea stars in the clear, shallow water.
After your guide gives you a briefing on how to best enjoy the area safely, you are outfitted with a kayak to enjoy about 90 minutes at your leisure to paddle around the aptly named Turtle Park. Watch graceful turtles as they bob their heads above the water; some will come close enough to your kayak to allow you to feed them. No kayaking experience is necessary for this adventure, so it is a perfect shore excursion for novices, children, and experienced kayakers alike. 
You return to the mainland by boat and then are transferred back to the cruise port.

Words can't describe how amazing this experience was. We were on the Carnival Pride and were only to be in port in Freeport from 7am to 1:30pm. Brice emailed ahead of time and told us where to meet once the ship was cleared. Once Brice...More

Brice picked up our group at the cruise port so I don't see why he couldn't pick you up at your hotel.

I think they will pick you up from the hotel. I contacted them through email on their website and he responded fairly quickly. You might try that.
