I read many reviews of places to snorkel on Grand Bahama Island. Paradise Cove sounded interesting. I sent an email, and immediately received a reply. I was on a cruise ship, but booked this tour myself. The van was right on time, the driver was courteous and informative as we traveled to Paradise Cove. The beach is beautiful and the... More

We hired a cab to bring us from Lucaya to Paradise Cove and were glad we went. The snorkelling was fantastic and the staff was very helpful. We were a bit disappointed that there wasn't much else there, as the descriptions made it sound like there were lots of shops, restaurants and activities. But there was only one restaurant and...

Stopped in Freeport for the day on our cruise. We booked the day to snorkle through Paradise Cove. We were picked up at 9 next to the big excursion tent in port. The price is great when you book directly through the Cove. Transportation is included and you can head back at 12:30 or 2:30. The snorkeling is amazing!! We... More

We were looking to enjoy some snorkeling in the Bahamas and were disappointed. Not about beautiful water and opportuntities to snorkel outside the rocks, but because there were so many people there it overwhelmed the beach and ammenities. We were there mid-day when the tide was out, which greatly limited our snorkeling options and had to go outside the rocks... More

Paradise cover is absolutely beautiful and the people that work there are very hospitable. The owner Barry is also a super cool and friendly guy. The beach is beatifull and the snorkeling/fishing/spearfishing is great. I would recommend this place to anyone that goes to Freeport.

I recently visited Paradise Cove for the second time. I was with 15 women on a Carnival cruise. We did not book an excursion; we found two taxis at the port to take us ($8 round trip I think) and arranged a time for them to come back and pick us up. I love Paradise Cove. It is absolutely beautiful,... More

Paradise Cove was my favorite day of our vacation. We took a cruise from Charleston, SC to the Bahamas and decided to take this excursion (book it with Paradise Cove, not the cruiseline). We signed on for snorkeling, but because my sister is very cold natured and the wind was quite strong that day, they allowed us to switch our... More

Great facilities, amazing snorkeling, and very friendly staff and owner. We saw a ton of fish (three different types of rays and a sea turtle). It is as little bit of a swim to the main reef, but my 7 year old daughter made it with no issues. The staff is very friendly. The equipment is in good shape. We... More

Do not pass this place up if you like to snorkel. Saw the most amazing fish at Paradise Cove. I'm not talking schools of little fish, like when I snorkeled in Thailand -- we're talking massive fish in size and number in an array of gorgeous colours. I never expected it would be this fantastic. I saw three stingrays swim... More

This excursion was one bad experience after another. We came in by cruise ship and were given specific instructions to meet the driver at the Ministry of Tourism booth by the shopping area at 9am. We waited and waited (even arrived 15 min early) and no one ever came. Half of our group decided to walk to see if we... More
