Private boat tours in Nassau or Freeport or something diff?

We have been to these two ports so many times. We have taken the private cab tours, shopping tours, historical tours, booze cruises and the beaches. We are going back because our friends have chosen to celebrate their 50th anniversary on this cruise. We want to do something very different, but we are also limited with the amount of time we are in port. Help !!!!

How long are you in port for? What do you think would be fun to do?

Both ports----we arrive at 8, depart at 6. You two must live in the Bahamas, or do you just visit alot? I have seen your posts often and because of that, you are most helpful. I hope you can give me direction to do some of the things that most tourists don't do. I also have gotten some of the local taxi drivers that really are not into showing you around. The last one was a gem though, in fact, he saw we were having trouble getting directions from a local, we hired him, then he took and introduced us to his Mom at the Straw Market and made her some money. I would love to hire a driver that would take drive us for the day and not just in the town area.

Some excursion ideas for you:

Call Smiling Pat and ask her to set you up with a deserted island picnic out at Sandy Cay off of West End - http://www.smilingpat.com. Along the way try your hand at some snorkeling and maybe some reef fishing. Or try her West End tour and ask her to show you where to get the best Bahamian delicacies, go shelling at Lovers Beach or perhaps to see the old church or visit Grandmother's Bakery in Eight Mile Rock. She'll customize a tour for you if you ask.

Have Capt AJ do a native adventure for you out at Peterson Cay - http://www.exoticadventuresbahamas.com/

Go on an airboat out at East End with Bahamas Ecoventures - http://www.bahamasecoventures.com/

Go Birdwatching, or to East End, or a Bike & Snorkel Tour with Shami at Calabash Eco Adventures - http://www.calabashecoadventures.com

Spend the afternoon at Garden of the Groves - http://www.thegardenofthegroves.com/

East End Charm Tour with JC - jcspecialtytours.com/EastEndCharmTour.html

Try the Semi-Sub with Superior Watersports - www.superiorwatersports.com/seaworld.htm

Ride horses on the beach and in the water with Trikk Pony Adventures - http://www.trikkpony.com/

Have a Dolphin Experience with UNEXSO - www.unexso.com/index.php…

Ask Brice to take you around the island in a limo - http://www.ftandtour.com/page2.html

Just a few ideas, have fun!

This is exactly what I am looking for !!! I assume this is for Freeport, but do you recommend anything for Nassau? We also are docking in Key West, anything there? Our time is 7-3.

I'm going to post for St. Maartens, St. Lucia, St. Kitts for Nov. I can give advice on South Caroina and the Smokey Mountains in Tenn. Thank you so much !!!

I would recommend to post under the Nassau forum for Nassau questions, and Key West forum for Key West questions. They will be able to help you better.
