We booked the tour for a couple or reasons. I was told Sundays did not have a massage person or other activities so we picked the more expensive tour. It was a beach off of the main island and there were massage services. I verified the weather policy, massage services, and snorkeling. We were picked up near the harbor and... More

Dear Guest Thank you for your review. In response to your two points 1) Unfortunately the weather isn't something we can control, nor predict. We do our very best to monitor the weather forecasts which that day was calling for good weather, and hence why our excursion operated (as did all of the excursions). We treat the safety of our...

Recently took a cruise to the Bahamas, and I wanted to give my girlfriend a special experience outside the cruise's offshore excursions. I picked Sandy Toes (ST) based on past reviews, and wasn't disappointed. We picked up a cab at the cruise dock (keep walking pass all the initial cabs, and pick one up in town), and rode over to...

Thanks for the review! Yes yes yes!! It's funny because a lot of cruise ship guests feel that their ship times and our tour times don't coincide, but on the contrary, our tour times have been created to work with most of the cruise lines! We depart at 10:00am and return at 3:45pm leaving ample time on both ends to... More

We went with a friend via private boat, not realizing that they only serve food on specific days. They were actually closing up shop and the tourists were all leaving. We were told that we could stay and enjoy the beach and the water - and we did! Such a great place with an amazing beach and gorgeous water. I... More

Hi and thanks for the review! For future notice, we run a day excursion on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and the Party Pass on Sundays. On the regular day excursion, we include a buffet lunch but we have the beach bar grill open on Sundays; so always Sundays every Sundays, food is available anytime but through the week, just...

Our excursion was incredible. First day in Bahamas and we were swept away to sandy toes. Such an interactive island yet very private and sexy. Short supervised excursion just what we needed to accustom to oceans creatures. Incredible turquoise water and underwater life. Staff is absolutely awesome, why wouldn't they be with jobs like these! Bar is fully stacked, but... More

We booked the excursion out to Rose Island on the Sandy Toes website on our computer once we were on Paradise Island. The instructions on where to meet and what to bring were excellent and very clear. The boat ride out to the island was amazing! Our guides told us stories of the islands, the ocean and how deep it...

We had a great time snorkeling on Rose Island. The tour guides were great--entertaining and attentive, the island itself is a gorgeous little hideaway. The island has a small beach bar but the drinks were rather weak. I would definitely go on this tour again.

Hi! Oh goodness you think! On the contrary, we put a "spicy" amount in most of our cocktails, so careful it doesn't hit you later! Haha you can always ask our bartenders for modifications too so please feel free to do so :) Hope you return! Sandy regards, The Sandy Toes Team More

I think this was one my favorite excursions that I had during my 8 day stay in the Bahamas. Not just because of the private beach and the snorkelling and such, but because I feel like I made a friend or two there as well. I can't thank Morgan, our guide, for the conch hunt we had. It wasn't part... More

I visited Sandy Toes on an office "fun day" - there were about 50 of us that ventured there together to simply enjoy the beach, some Bahamian lunch and drinks. The water was beautiful - we spent nearly the whole time just sitting in the ocean with a drink in our hands. The boat ride there and back can be... More

Boat ride about 25 minutes to private island. Limited shad on beach, but nice calm sandy bay. Guided snorkel tour was great. Not much of a reef though to see. Kayaks sit real low in water and are filled with water constantly. Drinks a bar are strong and at a good price. BBQ lunch was decent. The cost for 2... More
