After looking at a number of day trips available from Nassau/Paradise Island, We decided to try the SandyToes excursion to Rose Island. From booking to getting off the boat at the end of the day, everything is professional, well planned, organized and thoughtfully executed. The boat ride was relaxing enough (for a boat full of tourists), a rum punch drink... More

This was well worth our money and gave us a chance to see more of The Bahamas. Our bus did run a little late picking us up. We were scheduled to be picked up at 930 but I think it was closer to 10am. The Harbor tour was fun along the way and very informative and got to see celebrity... More

Thank you so much for your review! We just wanted to mention the comment about the transfers, if it runs a couple minutes early or late, don't worry :) The way it works is that the transfer company could be going to a few other hotels first and if they are a few extra minutes assisting the guests, than that...

After a scenic boat ride, we arrived on Rose Island and made for a hammock under the trees. Sandy Toes is ideal for locals who want to get away and tourists who want to have a good time while soaking in the sun, sand and sea. You're offered a free lunch and can purchase a drink plan ahead of time.... More

Great ambiance when you get there. Drinks are great and it's just money to go out on the beach and just take in the whole Rose Island experience. The Sandy Toes Olympics are always a scream!!!

My girlfriend and i decided to have a full day excursion with Sandy Toes. So far this was the great experience we had despite of having lots of photos and videos with our go pro :) For the amount of $170 you'll have the hotel pick up/drop off and a short boat trip for about 25-30 mins heading to their...

A short 30 minute boat ride from Paradise Island is Rose Island. Along the way our tour guide, who had the handle, "Big Sexy", pointed out the numerous celebrity homes including Oprah, Tiger Woods, Mike Jordan etc. Although the weather wasn't great on the way out the ride was relatively smooth. Rose Island has some of the finest sand I... More

Thank you for your review! Please understand that the reef is wild and there are no barriers or cages to trap or contain animals in a certain spot. We do feed the reef and lots of these fish stick around on their own and you can usually see lots of different wildlife all the time! Fish, turtles, dolphins, starfish.. you... More

This by far was the best excursion for the money on out trip to Atlantis. The staff was great Stephen was so helpful and friendly to our son Nick when we went snorkeling. I would defiantly recommend the 10am to 3:45pm day excursion. Do not bring anyone who has trouble walking as any active person can handle the stairs but... More

I read and read and reread about this excursion on trip advisor for months before I booked it. I waited for more accurate weather info before I did. We went for it and are so glad we did. If you read all the reviews about the walk and everything else, then you will know what to expect. The negative reviews... More

My first time to snorkel and Big Sexy was a great leader. The only thing I didn't like is that it didn't last forever!
