So it's about 20 miles from the Memories hotel, we rented a car and drove out. The admission for 2 adults was under $7 US and the parking free. Lounge chairs on the beach run $4/day and the swim out in the shallow water is worth the experience. Water is cold, and it's difficult to maneuver in low tide. Best... More

We booked this excursion while on a cruise ( it was cheaper via the island than via cruise ship) that docked in lucaya..it was a decent ride, beautiful beach and clear water, very much away from the Freeport madness. The snorkeling was great, but I enjoyed the beach and the view most of all. Would recommend it to anyone!

Ok, first, this place is magical. I mean it, the reef is awesome and I swam from shore. Make sure you go during high tide. I spent 3 hours floating on the reef and saw all kinds of fish, even some big rays! Second, its a bit hard to get to without taking an excursion. 1.5 hours on rented scooters... More

Wonderful experience snorkeling here from a cruise ship that we arranged on our own. One week prior to our cruise, we discovered this place on-line to snorkel. We made a reservation (no fee or payment until we arrived at port) to snorkel (includes equipment) for $35 a person which included a ride to and from our cruise ship. They picked... More

This is well supervised, clean and protect reef with lots to see and do. My wife and I loved it..they have everything you need for a minimal cost in case you forgot or don't have some gear.

Clean, calm and very organized. That beach was Amazing. (3$) Elvis welcome you with a Security brief when you check in and show all the coral and fish you can find under this clear water. Highly recommended. Dont be surprised and shy at the port cruise when all the taxi driver scream and yell to drop you at your destination.... More

I love Paradise Cove, the casual atmosphere...and well, the REEF. I have snorkeled there maybe a dozen times with family and friends. It is always an adventure. Swam with amazing eagle rays, nurse shark, barracuda, streams of herring, turtles, oh dear and once too many jelly fish. And always, always hundreds of reef fish. If you have a chance to... More

What a peaceful and relaxing day. Water was a little too cold for me to snorkel, instead got a lounge chair and free drink. I recommend opening a tab with a credit card. The staff is very very organized and write everything down as you order them. Food was good and beer was cold. Staff was friendly and always there... More

We booked this ourselves from our hotel. The shuttle missed us and I had to call again for it to turn around and get us. Once we got there the owner gave us free lounge chairs (normally a rental charge) and a discount on the snorkel gear for the inconvenience. I did not even ask for anything. We spent a... More

My wife and I made three trips here while in the Grand Bahamas. Mid to high tide is the best time to go. Plenty of colorful fish, sea turtle and large spotted ray. Beach location is great and the staff is friendly. At $3 plus VAT per person this is a good value and a great experience. If you love... More
