Another beautiful place to play.

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

Wow! I've been all over the world and this was my first adventure with my 13 yr old daughter. We got into Freeport on a cruise ship and Ricardo met us at the port. Mind you, I had lost my cruise ship card and could not leave the ship so Ricardo came back for me after I got a new... More

Great operation which is very safe for beginners through to advanced snorkelers. Also offer kayaks, jet skis etc. Water was clear. Staff give a clear briefing of the reef and conservation is high on their agenda. Lots af species seen from inshore to open sea dwellers. Spend the day there.

This is a piece of paradise, with a lovely beach and very clear blue waters. The check in process is simple, have to sign in, record how many people on the beach / in the water. Perez does a fantastic job putting out the sun beds and umbrellas and organising the activities going on the beach or in the water.... More

We opted to do this off the Carnival Fascination on our own. We wanted to get to the reef as early as possible for high tide, so we got off the boat as soon as we could. We didn't prearrange transportation. We got off the boat and they had a number of taxi's waiting to take you anywhere you'd like.... More
