This is a unique Nassau Cruise Excursion to see some of the best snorkel spots in Nassau. Enjoy a guided snorkel excursion combination of movie film locations, sunken shipwrecks or famous coral reefs all by boat.

Your friendly, English speaking Nassau shore excursion guide and the transportation will pick you up right across from your Nassau cruise ship pier. You will ride in air conditioned comfort to the dive shop on the southwest end of the island about 35-minutes away.

When you arrive at the dive center, you may recognize it from the Hollywood film, "Flipper". The friendly staff will get you checked in and the fun begins. The morning snorkel boat leaves at 09:15 and the afternoon leaves at 12:15 PM.

They will help you aboard the boat and then travel time is brief to the first snorkel site. The snorkel excursion captain will pick the best sites according to the water and weather conditions that day. Your guides will pass out the snorkel gear and demonstrate how to use it all - snorkel, mask, fins and snorkel vest.

When you arrive at the first snorkeling site, your excursion guide will assist you into the water. The first stop is usually a shallow reef with average depth between 10 to 25 feet such as Little Elvis, Goulding Cay, School House or Nari Nari. The cruise excursion guides will lead each small group over the reef and point out some of the interesting marine life. The snorkeling time is about 45 minutes before the guide takes you back to the boat.

Your second stop on this Nassau snorkel cruise excursion may be at one of the shallow shipwrecks in the area, a different coral reef or perhaps one of the sites used in a Hollywood movie filmed here such as the Cessna airplane sunk and used in the movie Jaws. The shipwrecks vary in depth with some deeper and the mast of the Caribe Breeze just 8 feet below the surface!

There also may be a 3rd stop to watch the Caribbean Reef Sharks. This is a site where specially trained divers feed fish to the sharks on the ocean floor below you. Guests may either watch from the boat or with their snorkel gear on from the surface. Not to worry...the shark's food is at the bottom, you are not part of their natural diet.

The boat will return you to the dive center and the transportation will depart between 01:00-01:45 PM for the morning excursion and between 05:00-05:45 PM for the afternoon excursion. The transportation will return you to your Nassau cruise terminal where you were picked up at the end of this Snorkel Shore Excursion in Nassau Bahamas. 

Bottled water will be provided on the boat and you are welcome to bring your own snacks.

Snorkeling with sharks was a highlight

The whole package was phantastic, once we got on the boat. There is room for improvement concerning the registration on site, as it was a long queue after we arrived at Stuart's Cove. The snorkeling sites were nice and not too far, and offered everything an average tourist can expect. The final site, where it was possible to be in the water with the reef sharks underneath was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The boat crew was very professional, friendly and helpful. We would do this trip again.

If you love and appreciate snorkeling as much as we do, then I would highly recommend doing this. Our captain was very generous with the stops we made. The boat we were on was very nice too. There is just so much to see at the stops, and if you have an underwater camera DO take it! You will not be sorry.

I LOVE to snorkel! I thought that this was a great price for this tour and I definitely got what I paid for. I booked this only for myself and ended up spending the day with some really terrific people, especially our guide. The things that you could see so clearly under the water was incredible. We did a couple of snorkel stops - one at a reef that was pretty shallow. It was swarming with fish! Great because it was close enough to the surface that you could see a lot. We also snorkeled at the location where they filmed one of the James Bond movies and there was a sunken small airplane still there that was a movie prop. If you love to snorkel, this is the way to go. I have snorkeled plenty and brought my own gear. But I took a look at the equipment they had and it was the latest stuff and better than mine!
