“Best Snorkling in Freeport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 December 2013

Have been going to Freeport for over 20 years and this is far and away the best snorkeling. Great beach with gradual entry if needed. Reef is great on both sides. Staff is very helpful and watchful. We always spend a few days there when we visit Freeport.

Room Tip: All are good

Our family of 6 cruised over the Thanksgiving holiday and took a trip to Freeport Bahamas, Paradise Cove. We contacted the Cove before leaving home and arranged for pick up from the cruise dock. Nathan was there with a huge smile at 8:00am. We took a nice 20 minute ride on his bus to the cove which was beautiful Nathan was gracious in describing things as we passed by- a mini tour. The beach is private, was not crowded and beautiful. The check-in and pick up of equipment went fast. Snorkeling equipment and waist float was included in the 35.00 excursion price. The kids had their equipment so their cost was less. We received a short briefing and a little help getting started snorkeling and off we went. WOW! what beautiful fish. After snorkeling we relaxed on the beach and ate some yummy food cooked at the little grill café. try the conch fritters- yum. We were taken back to the ship in plenty of time to walk around the plaza and listen to some live music before boarding the ship for our next destination. I would recommend an excursion trip to Paradise Cove. I thank all the other trip advisor members who offered wonderful advice when I reached out to them. I never go anywhere without checking the trip advisor. Thank you

Room Tip: They have 2 private bungalows on the beach for rent.

We visited Deadmans Beach December 1 while on the Carnival Ecstasty. I had e mailed Barry who promptly e mailed back. Shared a taxi ($16 return per person) with other guests. Lorenzo was a great driver. The beach was beautiful, paid our $3 resort fee and only $3 for a chair which a young man promptly took to our spot. Barry gave a mandatory snorkling briefing. Snorkling was great and not as other reviews had said was too far to swim. Saw a lot of coral (be careful on the fire coral) and some colorful fish. Ate grouper and conch for lunch-went down very well with two local 'Sands' beers. Very reasonable. Finished the day with a rum punch but hated to leave -maybe I will go back and work for Barry! Great to see the reef and beach was so protected. Definitly will go back next time in Freeport

We had a fantastic time hanging out on the beach, snorkeling, and searching for shells. Great information provided by the driver both to an fro. If you're on a cruise ships, they'll pick you up and drop you off right at the port. They give you a good quick intro on snorkeling which is good for the first timers. The fish were absolutely amazing, loved all the tropical/colorful fish. We even saw turtles and stingrays after we swam/snorkeled out about 1/2 a mile to get to the reefs. You pay once you get there, and the price absolutely cannot be beat. For our family of 4, this excursion was perfect!! The food is decent (not gourmet, yet good) and the staff is friendly.

Had a great time here. Snorkeling was great. Saw many fish, turtle, sting ray, and many other underwater life. Bus to and from cruise port was fun. Nathan was very funny and a great tour guide. Planning another cruise next yeat and will be going back.

Highly recommend this trip. We were picked up at the boat dock right off of the cruise ship. It was about a 30 minute ride in a mini-van to the beach. We were able to purchase snorkel equipment, beach chair and towels for a small fee. The beach is beautiful.....perfect place for a family. We swam out to the reef to see all of the tropical fish....others saw three sea turtles on the day we were there. Get the conch fritters....or you can get a hamburger .....all very reasonable! Sunny skies and perfectly clear water.......just a little slice of heaven!!
