Dive Into Nassau

You can get your shop on at the several duty-free shops here (they sell everything from upscale items to trinkets to rum cake). Or, you can head east if you want to take in some of the more historic sites like Fort Fincastle, Pirates of Nassau or the Queen’s Staircase. If you want to slow down and relax in the great outdoors, you can get back to nature with places like the Ardastra Gardens and Zoo or Cable Beach, which has plenty of underwater experiences to choose from, including dolphins, diving and glass-bottom boats. There’s something for just about everyone in Nassau. Just make sure you have more than one day to see it all!

 

Once a haven for pirates, Nassau is now a bustling tourist hot spot! With Nassau vacation packages, you’ll find duty-free shops along Bay St, historic buildings in shades of pink and raucous buccaneers at the Pirates of Nassau Museum. But don’t worry, this festive island has its share of beachfront resorts, ideal for lounging and relaxing in the Bahama sunshine.

    Mapping out the Bahamas

    With over 700 islands and 2,000 cays sprinkled across the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea, the Bahamas can be kind of confusing without a guide. Lucky for you, we've got you covered. The most popular islands you've probably heard of are New Providence, home to Nassau and Paradise Island, and Grand Bahama Island. However, there are numerous other small islands that make up the Bahamas, and they're typically known as the Out Islands. These beautiful, more pristine islands are true gems in the Caribbean. The most popular tourist region in the Out Islands is the Abacos. But whether you stay on the mainlands or adventure to the Out Islands, you'll love every minute in the Bahamas.

In fact, you can still see remnants of the old fort walls! They've been carefully preserved on the hotel grounds.

    Ardastra Gardens and Zoo w/o Transfer

    This four acre escape of lush tropical garden is situated only a few minutes away from downtown Nassau. The Ardastra Gardens, Zoo & Conservation Centre is open daily from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM and features three daily special showings of the famous marching flamingos. Around winding pathways, the informal gardens hold constant surprises - a cozy limestone bench in a secluded corner or the sight of a kingfisher that just flew in to enjoy the view. A footbridge over a pond where a swan mingles with Bahamian ducks and fresh water turtles sun on the shore overlooked by archways of shrubs and exotic plant life. Created by Jamaican horticulturist Hedley Edwards, who later brought the flamingos from the southern Bahamas as a contrast to the greenery, the gardens have matured into a contemplative setting bursting with color.

    Bubble Sub

    Think of a self-contained underwater motorcycle with a large two foot clear dome keeping your head perfectly dry throughout your ride around the underwater reefs. You probably saw them for the first time on the television series "Sea Quest" when they were used as "escape pods" for the crew to abandon ship in case of an emergency. The "bubble" or dome - is large enough for your head and even your hands. This ensures that you can still wear your eyeglasses and adjust them as necessary. It also means that you are breathing normally - through your nose and mouth - without the need of using snorkel tubes or regulators like you would when diving.

    Included:

    • Equipment
    • Hotel transfers
    • 10-15 minute pre-dive pilot briefing 


    Departures: Every morning, except Mondays and Thursday. Additional trips can be arranged with a minimum of 6 participants.

    Pirates of Nassau

    The Golden Age of Piracy lasted for thirty years, from 1690 to 1720, and Nassau was at its heart. Here was a tropical pirate Paradise, which attracted the greatest concentration of pirates ever seen in the New World. Nassau was well suited as a pirate base of operations; its waters were too shallow for a large man-of-war but deep enough for the fast shallow draft vessels favored by pirates. From their snug harbour they could employ their hit and run tactics to full effect; they devastated merchant shipping that plied the trade routes just a short sail away. Their pirate gold and goods formed the basis of a thriving community that attracted rogues, merchants and wild women from far and wide. Begin your journey by exploring a twilit quayside where the smell of tar and seawater mingles in the still evening. Hear the water lap gently against the dark wooden ship. In the tavern close by, her crew celebrate with fiddle and song the capture of a rich prize, laden with Spanish gold. Stowaway aboard the pirate ship "Revenge" and explore the lower decks. Discover what life was really like at sea in 1716 among swinging hammocks, stowed cannon, volatile gambling sessions and on-board surgery under the ship's carpenter! It is said that when a pirate slept, he did not dream that he had died and gone to heaven, but that he had returned to Nassau. Emerge from the lower decks to find yourself in the island paradise of Nassau's beachside shanty town. You will also come face to face with the notorious pirates Anne Bonny and Mary Read as they dispute their pirate share. Prepare to be boarded by the terrifying Captain Teach and his fearsome crew as you find yourself on the deck of an embattled ship on the high seas among exploding cannon and torn sail.

     

    Price: Without transfer, $12.00 for adults. First 2 children under 12 accompanied by adults are free. $6.00 per child thereafter.

    Stuart Cove's 2-Tank Shark Adventure Dive

    ***MUST BE A CERTIFIED DIVER***

    Stuart Cove's Shark Adventure is a 2-tank dive program which introduces thrill-seeking divers to wild sharks and provides you a close up look at these magnificent and misunderstood creatures.

Your first dive with the sharks is along a magnificent wall where the sharks swim calmly along with the divers in a non-feeding environment. Your second dive is on a large sand patch where the group kneels down in a semi-circle and watches our Divemaster feed the sharks off of a long pole. Dozens of 5'-6' Caribbean Reef sharks swim amongst everyone and come within touching distance of all of the divers (although no touching is allowed!).

    Get Fresh-From-the-Sea Fare at Potter’s Cay

    Beneath the Paradise Island Bridge is a little-known market that thrives with the freshest seafood you can imagine. Every morning, fishing boats from the Out Islands arrive and start to unload fresh crab, spiny lobster, grouper, mackerel and even (the endangered) sea turtle. It's a fascinating sight to witness. Even better, see if you can strike a bargain with the fishermen for some of these fresh-from-the-sea delicacies. Then, you can grill them yourself on the beach for a fresh, light lunch.

    Airport

    There are no travel advisories in effect for Nassau. Flights land in Lynden Pindling International Airport (NAS), the largest airport in the Bahamas and gateway into the country. It has 30 gates and two runways.

  • ""

    Immigration & Customs

    All immigration forms are usually supplied by the airlines. When entering The Bahamas, visitors must complete and sign an immigration form. A portion of this card (returned to you by the immigration official clearing you for entrance) is required to exit The Bahamas. Regarding customs, U.S. citizens out of the country for 48 hours are allowed up to $800 worth of duty-free merchandise. Nassau Paradise Island is one of the few Caribbean destinations that provides pre-clearance for U.S. Customs and Immigration services, allowing flights from Nassau Paradise Island to enter the United States as domestic flights and bypass the normal U.S. Customs and Immigration clearance encountered on most returns from an international destination. Please allow an extra hour for check-in during peak hours.
