I drove there in my rental car, brought my own snorkel gear, paid my $4.00 entrance fee to get in, snorkeled for 2 hours, loved every minute of it, saw BEAUTIFUL coral, fish, turtles, and stingrays. Very reasonable and a good time! Talk to Barry to find out where the turtles like to hang out--he knows that reef like the... More

Unfortunately when we went they were experiencing cooler weather. The water was beautiful but it was too cool for us as well as some others to snorkel. The staff recommend we sit up by the trees where it was out of the wind and much much warmer when the sun was out. The conch fritters were delicious. We would love... More

We went here to snorkel from the cruise port, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Great snorkelling. Had to listen to "instructions" about where to snorkel, and not to touch corral, etc, which was fine.

Just came back from a Bahamas cruise and we decided to pick this excursion after our first option (Pat and Dianne) cancelled us a few days before our trip. We could not have made a better choice. The driver was right there waiting for us at the port, he left RIGHT on time, two schedule people did not show up... More

We took a family cruise for Christmas and one of our ports of call was Freeport. We had research our options well and had settled on this excursion. We couldn't have done better, the location alone lives up to the name (NOT Deadman's Reef)! We had Edward and his assistant - John as guides. We reviewed all of our loaned... More

You can pay $40 to get from your hotel to the place and this includes rentals. I found it well worth it. The reef was pretty far out but it was filled with great coral and lots of fish life. We even ended up seeing 5 sea turtles!!! It's a fairly deserted beautiful place to kick back. Worth the $... More

Oh wow. This guy would charge for the air you breath! Beware of their shuttle and quoted prices. They won't honor them upon arrival. He charges for EVERYTHING. I mean everything! We joked all day that we were surprised he didn't charge for the restrooms. There's a sign that says sunsets are free. Wow, thanks! I suggest bringing your own... More

We can't say enough good things about Paradise Cove and the people who work there. We went two days in a row and would have gone a third day but the wind came up and that ended any hopes of snorkeling. What a great piece of water. Sea turtles, (several) Sting rays (2 types) myriad fish of all types and... More

We travelled here as a family; we got the package that included the snorkelling gear and beach chairs, so there really wasn't much additional cost unless you wanted food or to rent a locker. The snorkelling was amazing, however it is quite a swim out to the rocks. It did take a couple hours to get out and back. The... More
