Sip, Sample, See Nassau! You'll be driven from site to site in comfortable excursion transportation accompanied by an experienced Nassau Food Excursion guide. With both a pickup and a drop off at your Nassau cruise ship pier, you can be assured that all you'll need to do is enjoy the day in the Bahamas.
This Nassau Food Excursion begins when you walk just a few steps away from your Nassau cruise ship terminal. There you'll be met by your cruise excursion guide, receive an orientation, and climb aboard your comfortable, and air-conditioned transportation to Arawak Cay, just 5 minutes away.
At Arawak Cay, you have the chance to visit Drifters Restaurant where you'll be able to enjoy conch fritters and lemonade. There will be a demonstration of cracking open fresh conch and preparation of conch salad that you will get to sample. You'll also enjoy seeing artifacts and pictures of the old Nassau. You'll have approximately 30 minutes in Arawak Cay.
Your next stop will be at the historic Fort Charlotte, just 5 minutes away. The fort rangers will take you to a 20-minute walkabout while giving you information about the history of the fort. If you are lucky enough to visit on a Wednesday or Friday you might catch the reenactment of British soldiers preparing for battle and shooting blanks on the antique cannons.
On the 10-minute ride to your next stop at Tasty Tea's Bush Teas, you will have a panoramic view of the Veteran's and the St. Agnes Cemeteries. There you will have a chance to sip a variety of teas and learn a little about how Bahamians relied on the bush to cure ailments back in the day. There will be time to make purchases if you desire. You will be at Tasty Teas for close to half an hour.
About ten minutes away you will have the opportunity to taste the world renowned rum cake at the Rum Cake Factory. Traditionally a holiday time cake, Rum Cake is the best in The Bahamas. The Rum Cake Factory has exotic varieties like coconut, pina colada, and chocolate. Cakes are baked on site and guests are able to watch the process of baking thru packaging and labeling. Samples of each variety are provided. You are welcome to purchase your favorite! You will spend close to half an hour at the factory.
Then you're off for a ten-minute ride to Fort Montagu. Have your camera ready as you'll see the Paradise Island Bridge and the Sir Sidney Poitier Bridge and will be given information about both. You'll also see Potters Cay Dock, which is a market by day and a happy hour hangout at night.
Then you'll arrive at Fort Montagu Cay, drive around the perimeter and see the architecture from 1742. Although much smaller than Fort Charlotte, it was considered quite formidable in its day. You'll have a chance to stop for photos for about ten minutes.
Then you'll head off to the Fort Montagu Park for a quick sample of a concoction called a Gully Wash. This is made by a coconut being sliced open, the water inside is mixed with gin and is considered a local favorite.
Then you'll hop back on-board your Nassau Food Tasting Excursion transportation for the short 10-minute ride to the Drifters for lunch. You'll have a sampler plate that will include tamarind glazed wings, coconut infused peas and rice, Caribbean coleslaw, fried plantains, and bottled water. You'll have quite the view and close to an hour to relax and enjoy these unique foods. Other food and beverages may be purchased at guest's expense.
After lunch, you'll be driven back to your Nassau Bahamas cruise ship pier, just ten minutes away.
