Overview
Enjoy an afternoon of snorkeling, sailing, and sunning aboard a state of the art catamaran! You'll sail out to one of the Islands most beautiful reefs teeming with tropical fish along nearby Spruce Cay or Athol Island. Once the boat anchors, your crew will provide you with snorkel equipment and instruction in its use. Then it's time to dive in and enjoy your afternoon exploring the colorful fish and coral formations. Complimentary filtered water will be available throughout the tour, while rum punch will be available for purchase following the snorkeling portion of the tour. Lastly, you can relax and enjoy the leisurely sail back to the ship.
Highlights
  • Cruise along Nassau’s coastline on a catamaran and enjoy views of the harbor
  • Ideal as a shore excursion or for first-time visitors
  • Snorkel at an underwater reef with a guide; snorkeling equipment included
  • Choose from two departure times to easily fit this tour into your schedule
What to Expect
Your tour starts when you meet your guide at the Paradise Island Ferry Terminal in Nassau. Then climb aboard a custom catamaran and cruise on the harbor. Your captain takes you to one of the Bahamas’ most spectacular underwater reefs. Anchor at one of two small uninhabited islands—Athol Island or Spruce Cay—and then put on your snorkel gear and jump into the water. Snorkel around the reef with a guide and see a dazzling variety of colorful coral, tropical fish, and marine life. After snorkeling, hop back on the boat and relax on the comfortable, spacious deck. Enjoy a provided rum cocktail or fruit punch while you mingle with some of the other guests, and then cruise back to Nassau to end your tour.

The reef you go to is average, the coral isn't very colorful and there are not a lot of different species of fish to see but there are a lot of fish. Our boat was more crowded than i expected (maybe 45 people on board) but was comfortable. I did like the trip, the crew is great

I am very sorry for any misunderstanding that occurred at the pier. Please be aware that we never sell reserved seats to other groups. That practice is completely out of policy. Please send me your specific tour information and contact information and I am happy to look into it for you. sales@seahorsesailingadventures.com
