What you'll do

If you're tired of being around large crowds and want to get away on an intimate experience this one is for you.

First, we will meet you at Bay Shore Marina. We will meet you in the parking lot and escort you to the boat.

Once we are all on the boat just sit back and relax while you listen to your local Bahamian captain tell you about the Bahamas. You will pass beautiful Paradise Island looking at million dollar homes.

After about 15 minutes we will arrive at Rose Island (only accessible by boat). With its beautiful beach and pristine waters it is the perfect location to relax and unwind. Snorkeling gear is provided for free and you can snorkel as much as you want. After experiencing Rose Island we will travel a short distance to swim with the amazing turtles. Then we head back and relax as you are served fruit punch and sit around talking for the approximate 15 minute ride back to Bay Shore Marina.

The entire experience is expected to last 4 hours.

Other things to note
We will provide life jackets, drinking water, and fruit punch. Bring a towel, sunscreen, and swimsuit. Just come relax and take in the beautiful water, scenery, and enjoy your time on an intimate boat experience.

I started boating when I was about 14 years old. I am passionate about boating and want to share why I love it with others. I fell in love with Nassau when I visited on a cruise ship. The crystal clear waters, the friendly people make it a place unrivaled in the world. Combining my love for Nassau and my love for boating couldn't get much better.

Truly an incredible experience! The sea turtles were magical, and the snorkeling site and rose island beach were truly beautiful. It was nice having a smaller group than other tours too. Cannot recommend highly enough- worth every single penny!

Perfect way to end our vacation, highly recommend getting off land and taking this charter. Our family of four had an amazing time-couldn’t have been better! Swimming with sea turtles was the highlight. Fantastic hosts.

This trip was the highlight of our stay so far. Captain Wellington and the crew were great. We did have the privilege of swimming with wild sea turtles. Snorkel locations were perfect and so were the cocktails. Great value and happy memories.
