We were on a Carnival cruise but set this adventure up online. There were only 7 of us picked up on a nice, air conditioned bus. The driver was friendly and made us feel welcomed and he pointed out a few sights along the drive. Even though it was June and a gorgeous day, there were few people. It's a... More

I had never been snorkeling before! Paradise Cove sent a shuttle to our resort to pick us up. The driver gave so much GBI info on teh 30 minute ride to the reef that I felt that was worth the price of admission. The place was gorgeous! So gorgeous!! I saw so many species of fish and coral...Sea turtles, manta... More

We went to Deadman's Reef through Carnival Cruise Line. After checking prices, the cruiseline's price was comparable to everything else and included transportation. The snorkeling was cool. It was an overcast day, so while the colors weren't vibrant the water was extremely clear. We went out with a guide named Mikey and his helper Petey. Mikey was a great swimmer/snorkler... More

We were told that this was a great resort with amenities as I would not go snorkeling with my daughter and son-in-law - I would enjoy the beach while they were out. It really isn't a resort. It is more like a couple of shacks on the beach - kind of rustic. I paid $28 for transportation to and from,... More

This was well work going to. It is a lot of fun and has excellent snorkeling. Barry is very friendly and very helpful. The food is very good and we had a wonderful day there. We called and got transportation from our hotel and back again.

Paradise Cove is a genuine family operated business on the West End of Grand Bahama. For just a few dollars per person, we enjoyed a clean, beautiful beach with outdoor shower, restrooms, changing rooms, and fabulous snorkeling at Deadman's Reef. Wonderful staff, good food and drink, fair prices. We had such a good experience that we returned for a second... More

Paradise Cove is very nice location for snorkeling. The water is mostly shallow which is good for beginner's like me. My daughter throughly enjoyed herself further out. She has greeted by parrot fish, turtles and barracuda…. Staff teach you the snorkeling basics. Maybe on my next trip I will be more adventurous. Snack bar has hot dogs, burgers, cracked conch....

The reef is in great shape and has lots of colorful coral and fish. You'll usually see an occasional ray, turtle or shark. Looking at the photos, you snorkel (or take a boat) around one side of the reef, swim the length of the reef along the back side, then swim back in. The Paradise Cove people do a good... More

Family owned and operated. Quaint gift shop, nice beach, food, drinks, (alcohol and non) Very friendly staff. If you have a rental car drive here. I think it is 3 dollars to get in. They rent snorkel equipment if you do not have any. There is also kayak rentals. The reef is about 100 yards off the shore. Going at... More

We took our own snorkel gear so only had to pay like $4 a person. Sweet! There were several changing rooms available. They offered boat rides out to the reef $10 for 2 people. I would totally do this next time to spend more time to swim along the actual reef. The kids were tired after swimming out there and... More
