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 the Cruise boat pier exit to begin the experience. Look for someone holding the sign that says "Nassau Sailing Cruise Excursion" when you come out of the cruise port and they will escort you to the boat.

Once we are all on the boat, it is smooth sailing from there. We will pass beautiful Paradise Island with the majestic Atlantis Resort. After less than an hour of sailing past beaches and along islands we will arrive at Rose Island. The crew will provide you with all of the equipment you will need. You'll see crystal clear water, a very vibrant and lively reef full of colorful coral and beautiful fish in every direction. We will hang out on the beach and snorkel for an hour and a half and then it will be time to make the way back to the start. Refreshing fruit punch will be provided as you relax, sipping your drink, and talking.

The entire experience is expected to last 4 hours.
Other things to note
We will provide life jackets, water, snorkeling equipment, fruit punch, instruction on snorkeling and sailing. No sailing experience needed. You just come relax and take in the beautiful water, scenery, and enjoy your time on an intimate sailboat experience.

I started sailing on a tiny sailboat when I was only 14. I am passionate about sailing and want to share why I love sailing 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 sailing couldn't get much better.

This trip had a bit of an unfortunate start, as the boat battery was dead and needed to be recharged. We had trouble finding our captain, but once we met up, he explained the situation and eventually we got on our way. The trip itself was beautiful, as we went past millionaire homes, tiny islands and gorgeous reefs. Our captain, Wellington, was friendly, respectful and accommodating. He diligently found the best spot for us to snorkel and dropped in the water to help us get started. We then drove out to Rose Island where we had the entire beach to ourselves for a couple hours. The sand was pure white and the water clear turquoise. We ate our lunch on the sand under the beaming sun, it was amazing. On the way back, Wellington played some local tunes for us and told us about his home in Abaco. We had a really great time out on the water, I would really recommend this half-day trip. Small note, we didn’t actually sail, as it seems that our sail had been damaged in a storm.

Captain Welly and his first mate (and wife) Sade were fantastic tour guides! Due to circumstances I ended up taking this excursion without my plus one but these two made me feel right at home. Capt. Welly went in the water with me and stayed close to make sure I stayed safe and delivered me right back to the boat!! Thanks for an amazing experience.
