Awesome time on the ferry especially the tour guide. He was very funny. It cost only $8 per person round trip from Paradise Island to New Providence. A 10 minutes ride. So much cheaper than the taxi that is about $8 per person.

We loved the Bahamas. We were a little unsure about Nassau after reading reviews of the locals and being kid napped. But why’ll there the locals where great. The experience was amazing. Probably not the cleanest place but well worth the trip for the experience.
