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.

Take advantage of this stop in Nassau to experience the beauty that's above and below the water. This half-day sailboat cruise to Rose Island will more than accomplish that! Once in Nassau, you'll board again your transportation to return to your cruise terminal.

Lovely Rose Island

I've heard before about this famous spot but I never imagined was so beautiful. My family and I decided to take this excursion because the duration is good, the service included is what we needed, (boat, drinks, snacks and snorkel gear). Our guide took us to the best snorkel spot and the experience was wonderful. The beach time was the perfect compliment.

Snorkel options for all. My friends didn't feel ready to snorkel from the boat but they still could enjoy from the shore. The boat ride still, was so fun and we enjoyed all the time. The drinks on board are not great but we purchase from the cash bar and we had the best drinks. Rose Island is a paradise.
