Awesome treatment.

Mikey and Edward were our instructors. We had to that count swim. And they didn't miss a thing. They were awesome.

As a family we always take our annual family trip, most of the time we travel outside the country then come back to the states and go somewhere else and spend at least a week or more in each destination. The summer of 2014 my family and I took the fast ferry from ft. Lauderdale in Florida to go to... More

Fun place to swim and dine. You do have to pay to enjoy this experience. They do have gear for rent.

Paradise Cove was beautiful, the weather was nice and the beach was almost empty so my friends and I had it to ourselves. We got picked up from The Grand Lucayan right on time, it was an amazing experience. I saw a turtle, lion fish,snappers, all manner fish, it was pretty neat. I couldn't not swim but staff was patient... More

This is a beautiful spot for snorkelling and relaxing. Well run and affordable with an $18 charge pp for a whole day including your gear and a briefing. Was a bit disappointed with the coral and not a lot of fish on the day we were there. The food on offer is very basic so take your own in a... More

Rented a car, drove to Paradise Cove. For $18.00 rented a snorkel for one snorkle. Great Time and Value. Had two others in my party who brought their own snorkel. I think they only charged a few bucks for them to snorkel. They have a covered place with picnic tables for you to hang out. They have a outdoor stand... More

For the price for an all day pass USD $55 you cant beat it. However we only stayed for two hours - seen only a few different kinds of fish. I thought I would see more but still the fish were beautiful and plenty of them. Some amazing reefs as well and water was crystal clear.

I have been to this place twice. The first time it was amazing; the second time was stressful. You really need to visit this at HIGH TIDE! When we got there the second time (low tide), we were given instructions of all the places we were not allowed to snorkel because it was too shallow - it was basically all... More
