Both forts have great views, tour gides are very knowledgeable and you get a good feel of bahamian history.
There is an entrance fee of 5 dollars that actually changed to 1 dollar without ticket... go figure. We refused to go in due to this weird arrangement, the lady really seemed to be profiting from the monument which we felt we should not encourage. Good views over the sea, and you don't need to pay because the first wall... More
The view of the harbor entrance is very good. The staff was very friendly. How many historical exhibits can you see for $1? Loved walking through the tunnels and seeing the well going down into the darkness. I just toured it by myself, no guide. Only gripe is signage leading to the fort from Bay Street; there is none. You... More
Being from Florida I can appreciate a Fort as we have some wonderful ones up north. On a recent cruise we opted to check out Fort Charlotte after Atlantis turned out to be too much of a cash cow, we wanted something more authentic. We grabbed a bag of conch fritters, a cheap cab and arrived at Fort Charlotte within... More
I love the history lesson, the information obtained by the tour guide at Fort Charlotte. The scenic view is breath taking. You can see The Fish Fry, Atlantis, The Cruise Ships, Bahamar and a lot of the gorgeous beaches from the top of The Fort. You get to travel through the tunnels and dungeons, see authentic canons etc. It's a... More
My husband & I just went there by ourselves. It costs us $2 but worth more to look at the place. people can learn by them selves by wondering around. If you want more information, guides available on the spot. It is part of history, how people did things at that time.
worth the visit if you are into the real (not touristy) history of the Bahamas. Normally charging $5.00 (but running an end of season $1.00 rate). We ventured to the 2nd of 3 (4 actually) forts on the island. Like Fort Fincastle the tour guide works for tips. There is a small air conditioned souvenir stand inside and for a... More
Fort Charlotte is not much to look at...it does not have a lot of funding behind it. But it costs a $1 to get in and it is an interesting 20 minutes of the history with a knowledgeable guide
We were taken to the Fort by our taxi driver after we told him just to take us to some sights. The view was very nice and you could see the port with cargo ships and some of town. The Fort itself was in good shape. We took the self guided route and read the signs. It was nice small... More
