If you are coming to Freeport by cruise ship, go to their website and arrange for them to pick you up. Their driver Nathan met us early, we were able to enjoy... More

Used Viator to get a great deal and really had a blast....I was surprised how organized they were. Glad I booked before I got there because a couple on the cruise said they tried but it was sold out

We showed up the day after the storage shed burned to the ground, so there was a grand total of two snorkeling apparatuses and very little else. The area is nice, but without proper snorkeling equipment, it's hard to see much wildlife. I hope they rebuilt and re-inventoried, because from the surface, it looked like there was a lot of...

We had a wonderful afternoon here!! We saw tons of fish & a stingray right off shore. Everyone was great...they even helped my daughter fix her snorkel that we brought from home.

Paradise Cove is an absolutely beautiful place to visit. If I were to ever go back to the Grand Bahama Island, I would stay here - yes, they have cabin rentals. They are very interested in maintaining their reef and the species living there. It makes for a difficult swim out to the reef, but well worth it. We saw... More

Grab a taxi and do this on your own, a great place to spend the day. Check the weather first, a windy day makes for tough snorkelling.

We took a bus to Paradise Cove from our resort in Freeport. I was a bit concerned at first when I saw how far the rocks/reef are from shore, I'm pretty fit but the distance appeared daunting. However, the water is very shallow almost all the way out. On my way to the rocks, I saw a huge stingray, and... More
