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 Poop Deck restaurant on East Bay St. (the restaurant shares a parking lot with the marina). We will meet you in the parking lot and take you to the boat.

Once we are all on the boat, it is smooth sailing from there. We will pass beautiful Paradise Island. After less than an hour of sailing past million dollar homes and hearing from your local captain about the Bahams 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 about two and a half hours 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.

Then we will arrive at Rose Island where we will relax on the beach and snorkel at the vibrant reefs that are only accessible by boat. There you will see vivid coral and colorful fish as you calmly snorkel around.

Welly was an awesome captain! The sail to Rose Island was relatively calm and beautiful. Had plenty of time to swim and snorkel and explore the island a bit. So much fun! Will do it again next time we are here!!

Captain Wellington was a great skipper. This is one of the few activities our small group was able to do due to many tours being cancelled for not having enough parties to fill seats (low tourism due to COVID). The boat was nothing fancy but We felt safe the entire time and he kept us entertained with plenty of knowledge and stories about local Bahamian life. Im glad we were able to do this excursion and it ended up being the highlight of our short trip!

We loved the excursion with Caption Welly! The meeting time and location needed to be adjusted, but the communication was perfect and there were no hiccups there. It was just our party of two on the trip, and Welly was so nice and charismatic, and made us feel very comfortable and welcomed. We chatted the entire ride to and from the island and there was never a dull moment. The trip was well worth what we paid and we highly recommend it to anyone able!

The boat ride and snorkeling were a highlight for our stay in Nassau. The weather wasn’t cooperating for Rose Island so Captain Welly took us to another location with calmer waves for snorkeling. Truly a beautiful day

Pros: Wellington was a great captain and the experience overall was fun. Cons: The boat is very small and should not accomodate more than 4 people (we were 7). It was windy so the sea was very agitated and we got a looot of waves. Wellington brought us somewhere else further thab Rose Island since the weather did not permit us to go but I believe the activity should have been cancelled. We did an hour more of boating with water splashing in our face constantly to go to a snorkling spot where there were no corals or even fishes.
