Sail, swim, snorkel and enjoy the beach on a unique excursion to sail to Rose Island!
After meeting outside of your Nassau cruise ship terminal you'll be driven to the dock where you'll board your sailboat. The size of the sailboat you're on will depend on the number of guests booked that day. It could be a 41' boat with a capacity of 12 passengers or a 56' sailboat with a capacity of 26 passengers.
Please make sure you choose the correct pricing for your excursion date!
You'll then set sail for the peaceful Rose Island, a privately owned uninhabited island. Your sailing time in total is about 2 to 2.5 hours and you'll have about 1.75 hours to snorkel and enjoy the beach. The snorkel gear is included so just bring your swimsuit and towel. There are 2 options to snorkel. You can go off the sailboat in about 10 to 12' of water or snorkel directly off the beach. Experts and beginners alike will enjoy this thriving shallow reef. The coral reef here is some of the longest on earth. With crystal clear water you'll be able to see the myriad of tropical fish and colorful coral that make this home. If you're not interested in snorkeling or prefer to do it from the beach, there's a tender boat to bring you to the beach without getting you or your things wet.
On your return to Nassau, the crew will be passing around trays of cheese, salami, olive and crackers plus fruit and chocolate snacks. You won't go hungry on this sail but you're welcome to bring along your own snacks or lunch. Complimentary beverages offered for the entire cruise include unlimited fruit punch, iced tea, lemonade and bottled water plus unlimited Rum Punch on the return sail. If these are not to your liking there's also a cash bar where you can purchase sodas and juices for $2.00 USD each and beers, cocktails, wine, and Rum Punch for $5.00 USD to $8.00 USD each.

Escape from the cruise crowds and enjoy this half day sailing excursion to Rose Island. You can spend your time snorkeling or relaxing on the beach. Complimentary snacks and drinks during the sail!
