Snorkeling in Nassau

Possibly booking a snorkel and sail excursion from Norwegian Cruise Line in(Norwegian Sky) Nassau. Does anyone know what reef or place they take their passengers to snorkel. I heard that Stuart Cove was a good charter company to snorkel with. We are in port from 8-5. Thinking of taking Stuart Cove 1/2 day snorkel. Pick up at cruise port at 8:15. Anyone have any information on how long that trip might be and if I have enough time to do it. Thanks.

If you book an excursion through the cruise line then they make sure you are back at the ship on time and its their responsibility to get you back on time. They schedule excursions for the time slot you are in port. If you book outside of the cruise line then you risk getting back late and possibly missing departure.

1/2 day will get you back to the port around 1pm.. but you WILL NOT make the 8:15 pickup.

They will not wait for you to debark the ship.

This is a stellar tour.. with stops at a reef, a wreck, and sharks.. but your timing is off on this.

Stuart Cove's dock is 45 minutes away. They pick up quickly and get you out to the boat.

Bahamas Boat Tours (see previous post) offers a fantastic excursion!!! On their half day tour, you can go snorkeling at several spots, go tubing, visit a private beach to swim or go fishing....you pick which activities you would like to do. The cost is reasonable if you have a large party...and best of all the trip is limited to just your party. His pickup is at the port where the cruise ships dock and, with a half-day tour, you would still have time for some lunch and shopping in downtown Nassau.
