Snorkeling here is amazing! They point out that the reef is quite far out near the rocks, but as you go along, looking for fish and other critters, you will be at the reef before you know it. We saw about 5 turtles, 3 rays, and tons of fish the day we were there. The artificial reef closer to the... More

First, the snorkeling here was awesome. Saw many kinds of fish, not seen elsewhere. Takes a bit of time to swim out, but definitely worth it! However, the customer service and staff were horrible. The two ladies behind the counter were rude and not very helpful at all. The guy handing out equipment was also bad. I was given a... More

The Norwegian Sky (our cruise ship) had several shoreline excursions for Freeport, including this one, but we ended up not booking through the ship, as we were late. However, we were able to go straight to the beach by hiring a cab. The ride will cost you like $20 per person + the beach club fee, but we thought was... More

We booked online before getting on the cruise. We paid $32 p/p ($35 to use their equipment). The exact same excursion booked through Carnival was $79 p/p. We were there bright and early. Pay attention to where low tide is, getting stuck on coral HURTS! It started getting crowded when the hotel people arrived. We left on the 2:30 bus.... More

I came across this beach through the Carnival Cruise ship excursion and found it to be really nice. Perfect for snorkeling and laying out on the beach for a few hours away from the ship. The facilities are kept clean, offer food, bathrooms, showers and beach chairs. Our snorkel guide Eddie was very knowledgable and hospitable. I recommend the guided... More

Every time I am in Freeport I always go to Paradise Cove Beach Resort. Barry is the best and I really enjoy talking to his dad. You can't beat the price or the snorkeling. The beach is clean and the snorkeling is amazing. If the reef looks far away they will take you by boat to the reef for $5.00.... More

I am so happy we came here. I have never seen so many turtles and fish! The beach is so clean and well taken care of. The bathrooms are the cleanest I have ever seen on a beach! I would definitely come back here and snorkel! My husband was able to swim out to the rock on his own. I... More

The four of us went snorkeling here after our first choice was canceled due to the boat having difficulties. It was a reasonable $35 for transport and equipment rental. Timing is important it was low tide when we arrived so the water was very shallow lots of sea grass. Many different types of coral and small friendly fish. Clear cool... 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

If you are expecting this place to be a "resort" (as implied in the name) with all the extravagances and beauty that your mind conjures up, you will be disappointed. This is not a resort kind of place at all; and that's a good thing. If you want "resort" stay at Atlantis. If you want to see the natural beauty... More
