We rented a car and drove out to Paradise Cove, we had our own snorkel equipment so paid $3.00 USD to use the facilities and beach! It is about a km swim to the 30' reefs but they have rest stations set up, go at high tide so you are able to explore the whole area otherwise you are limited!... More

Great snorkeling here! Easy to get to by car or shuttle. Lots of colorful fish and oceanlife. Wonderful and helpful staff at this resort with great food at the deck bar with very reasonable prices!

Went with my family and stayed the whole week, it is absolutely breathtaking and will make you feel like you're in heaven! The reef was beautiful and it was so private we felt like we owned the island, the red bar was nice and it was cool walking over during the day for a frozen drink and some snacks if... More

Spring break cruise with grands and a friend. Freeport is a port where it is good to have a destination and this was great. I booked on-line ahead of time and felt the price paid was well worth it. Picked up at the pier in a nice, air conditioned bus. 20 minute ride with a little information about the island.... More

You could easily spend a whole day here! It takes about 20 minutes to get here from the tourist side of Grand Bahama by taxi or bus (we went through an arranged tour). Great place to visit for first time snorkelers. You can actually swim out the the reef here or pay dollars to be brought out by speedboat. Honestly... More

My 14 year old daughter got to swim with a sea turtle! Highlight of her snorkeling, indeed. This is definitely worth the trip. If you are afraid to go out, like I am, no problem. Just stay on the beach and let your family venture out. All equipment is there and you can swim out to the reef. Just be... More

There are many tour companies that will bring you here, but if you have your own vehicle, you can do it for a lot less! My friends and I came here to snorkel, but they offer a wide variety of other water activities (banana boat rides, jet skiing, etc). For only $8 i rented a snorkel and paid for my... More

We spent the entire day snorkeling and just hanging out on the beach. My husband, sister and my nephew actually snorkeled out to the reef twice and both times saw a turtle, sting rays and beautiful fish. It cost 3.00 plus tax for the day per person, but it's worth it, the staff their is so friendly and the lunch... More

Just got back from one of our best snorkeling trips ever. PLEASE stay off the reef, no standing on it or touching it. This is a young reef and it is growing well. Teaming with fish, sea turtles, eagle rays. The folks at the beach hut were very friendly and the prices were reasonable. 2 chairs and an umbrella, $13... More
