Once aboard this yacht, you will be able to catch some sun or if you prefer, relax in the shade of the bimini and listen to a smooth selection of music or just hear the sails in the wind. Coffee and donuts will be served in the morning to get you started.

During this amazing day, you will be able to sail about 3 hours of real "turn-off-the-engine-and-sail" time. During the cruise, you will sail past all of the nearby islands circling Nassau. You will forget every worry in your world.

It happens that you will be anchored in water full of colorful live coral and a multitude of fish with a maximum depth of 12'.

The day includes 2 1/2 hours at a lovely secluded beach on a nearby deserted island. You can spend the time as you please. Beach it - snorkel (equipment is included) - swim - go shelling - or just relax on board your yacht. You won't miss a thing because all the work will be quietly handled and, when ready, the crew will call you for lunch. Expect BBQ chicken and ribs, potato salad, cole slaw and fresh rolls. Unlimited complimentary fruit punch, iced tea, lemonade, and bottled water available throughout the day. You can also indulge in Bahamaian Rum Punch during the sail home. A cash bar is available if you would like another choice.

SWIM WITH THE DOLPHINS IN NASSAU ( Most Popular )      
  IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS EXCURSION, DO NOT DELAY IN BOOKING!!! IT FILLS UP QUICKLY!!!! If you are lucky enough to reserve a swim with the dolphins, you will be separated from those participating in the Encounters and brought to the swim area for a briefing on what to expect during the program. You will then enter the water where you will actually swim and play with the dolphins for 30 minutes with a small group of people. Kissing, hugging, and dancing are all part of the activities you will enjoy with your new pals. You will even be able to feed them.

Non-participants may observe those in their party who are swimming with the dolphins. There is an additional $20.00 per observer for the ferry ride from Paradise Island to Blue Lagoon. This observer fee is payable directly to the ferry and no reservations are necessary.
Since we hold most of our space in the 10:30am and 1:30pm time slots, we suggest that you request these for the best chance of receiving a confirmation.

BOTH OF OUR DOLPHIN PROGRAMS ARE IN GREAT DEMAND. You may be able to book this within 2 months of your request; there are usually some open spots here and there. But, if you truly want this experience, book it now. PLEASE DON'T WAIT.

See restrictions for information about which departure time you should book.

Note that 3 hour trip length includes the ferry ride to and from the Blue Lagoon Island where the dolphin facility is located, but does not include time it takes for the taxi or water taxi ride to the ferry dock. Also note that it is not possible to shorten the length of this trip as the ferry boat back to Paradise Island runs at set times.

Photos will be taken of your dolphin kiss and will be available for purchase after your encounter.

EXPLORE, DISCOVER, CELEBRATE JUNKANOO - EXCLUSIVE Information      
  A hands on exploration of the Bahamian Carnival for the whole family.Junkanoo is a loud and boisterous national festivity loosely derived from African customs. It takes place in January and in June, and the rest of the year is spent getting ready for it. Although the exact origins are unknown, it is thought to have its roots in slave celebrations on their only days off of the year. To celebrate, they decorated themselves with costumes made of paper.

Today, organizations may take a year to create their costumes, still of paper but much of it specially imported from Europe. Those fabulous costumes are on display at the Junkanoo Museum you will visit.

Your guide, Arlene, is a one-of-a-kind find. She is an incredible talent on her own and her knowledge, not just of Junkanoo and the culture of the Bahamas but of all facets of the island, is unbelievable. She will relate to all ages and will entertain rather than teach. With her, you will visit an authentic junkanoo "shack" in the historic district of Nassau, where she grew up. You will also participate in a Junkanoo workshop where you and your family will be able to create something - a hat or an ornament. Then, using native instruments like goatskin drums, cowbells and conch shells, you'll create Junkanoo music.

A 'must' stop for families and visitors who want to experience the 'true-true' culture of the Bahamas!

HALF-DAY SAILING AND SNORKELING ON OUR YACHT Information      
  This yacht, on pristine waters, in a private cove - that's luxury! The captain of this beautiful yacht once handled all the snorkeling trips for several cruiselines. He decided awhile back that he wanted to enjoy as well as deliver enjoyment, aboard his 51' luxurious yacht. Once aboard, you will be able to catch some sun or if you prefer, relax in the shade of the bimini and listen to a smooth selection of music or just hear the sails in the wind.

The total sail time will be about 1 1/2 hours in lovely winds. This will leave you to participate in a generous snorkel approximately 1 1/4 long. We will take you to a private little cove hardly affected by the winds or other intruders. Your snorkel gear and expert instruction to those novices is included.

Lunch will be served in one of the lovely dining rooms and will be accompanied by a delicious punch or glass of wine, although not from the vintage worth $5000.00 per bottle!

A visit to the small tobacco factory attached to the hotel will be the crowning glory to the day. The 14 torcedores rolling these perfect cigars were selected by Avelino Lara, the man who was the artiface of the Cohibas in Cuba.

DEDICATED SNORKELING TRIP Information      
  What a way to spend your day! Snorkel, Snorkel, Snorkel!   Snorkeling is one of the most relaxing and easiest activities to share with the whole family. This is an unusual snorkel because the whole tour is spent with professional guides who will take you to several sites. This is a primary activity and is not diluted with scuba divers or alcoholic beverages interfering with the true activity.

Each trip takes advantage of the multiple and diverse underwater sites. Two of the sites selected for the day will offer the clearest and calmest of locations. The third, if you are daring, will bring you close to the Caribbean reef sharks. You can snorkel with a guide as the sharks swim calmly below you, or if you prefer, watch from the boat.

Unlike most of our trips, this one may have lots of dedicated snorkelers together. But you will love the location and you will truly enjoy the reefs around you.
