Once your cruise ship docks in Nassau, meet your guide at the port for transfer to the starting point of your marine adventure. 

Board a boat with an experienced captain, then travel to some of the calmest, clearest locations for the best chance at excellent snorkeling. Get a safety orientation from your guide and get fitted for your snorkel gear. Don your provided mask, snorkel and fins and jump in. Float among schools of tropical fish, see live coral and other marine life. 

If the conditions are right, your second stop will be to get an up close and personal encounter with the sea's alpha predator: sharks. Follow your guide into the water to view the sharks swimming calmly below you. You can also stay on the boat to view the sharks in complete safety. 

At the conclusion of your 5-hour shore excursion, you'll be dropped off back at the cruise ship port.

Too many people on one boat, felt rushed during the excursion. Bus driver late leaving at meeting point because of late travelers, which caused huge delays. Not worth the price. Three stars given because of at the end we were able to be in the water with the sharks, which was a great experience. However, staff not friendly and it felt like they had no desire to be working. It's too bad as this could be an amazing experience if they cut down on the amount of people allowed on the boat and had themselves a little better organized.

As luck would have it, the cruise line changed the day that we were to be in Nassau and we had to call up and switch dates. Not only did the date change but the time was shortened as well. We were set to cancel but they were nice enough to modify our excursion by having us go to two out of three snorkel sites, then they sent a private motor boat to the main boat to bring us back to shore and then one of the assistants drove us back to the ship. We felt like royalty! Snorkeling was amazing. We saw an abundance of sea life. Highly recommend this tour.

I can’t believe how amazing it is down under. It’s another world. The crew members are very knowledgeable and very professional. I will use them again when i go to the Nassau

Excellent trip. It was quite busy, but plenty of staff to help everyone. This trip is all at sea, so if your not too good with small boats and choppy water, it's not for you. The crew were excellent and very helpful. Safety was paramount. The kit was clean and looked fairly new. Best bit was being in the water with sharks swimming under you just a few foot away. All done safely with clear safety instructions.

This excursion is highly recommended. The staff was great and helpful. The price is far better then any other excursions similar. Great locations to snorkel at and plenty of fish and sharks to swim with. I should also point out that the shark swim is optional but is definitely worth it!

Very fun tour. Three stops, two for snorkeling - buy fish food before you leave the dock! then the last stop was to swim in the water with sharks! The sharks came up to the boat when we arrived someone, not mentioning any names was sea sick over the side and the shark were attracted to it. Once that gentleman was moved into a safe place, the sharks paid attention to the chum bait cage our crew dropped about 20 feet below. We watched the sharks swim around and smell the cage so they didn't pay much attention to us above. We were only in the water 5 minutes, so get your GoPro ready fast! I was lucky to be first off the boat and last one aboard, so more time in the water. We also got to see the small island that has been in many movies, such as Pirates of the Caribbean. Nice adventure.

We enjoyed the Bahamas Snorkel Adventure while in port on our cruise. Easy and professional booking, picked us up on time although the busses are around the corner, not at the fountain as stated. They shuttled us around for about an hour did appreciate being picked up then finally arrived at the dive shop. We did get a full three hours on the water. The first stop was ok, but the second stop was great. The only complaint I had is I wish they could have done the shark snorkel differently. They made us hang on to a rope attached to the back of the boat. I realize this was for our safety, but we were crammed together, being kicked and yanked about. Maybe to let 2 groups go out or 2 separate ropes would have been better. Also, it would have been nice to have a small snack provided. We were told that nothing would be given, not realizing we were gone from 8:00am till 2:00pm when we got back to port. Over all good time, would recommend this tour.
