“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2009

We normally book our travel excursions when we cruise through the cruise lines. However, this time we decided to book a trip ourselves and I am very glad to say that this was by far one of the best excursions we have ever done.

The snorkeling is outstanding and the facilities and personnel are excellent. I don't think anyone could have a bad time doing this excursion. I would strongly recommend this location to anyone.

“will return!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2009

My husband and I just got back from our cruise to the Bahamas, and it rained 1/2 a day every day which really sucked!! So that meant all of our booked excursions got canceled. Just by a fluke we happened along “Dead man's Reef” also featuring the "Red Bar". We were pleasantly surprised, with the snorkeling the reef had to offer. We snapped pictures of parrot fish sting ray barracudas, huge brain coral, it was amazing!! and very inexpensive!! The people there were fantastic and great hosts. Needless to say we will be returning, hopefully sooner then later.

“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2009

Deadman's Reef or Paradise Cove is the best thing going on this island. Went there twice, both times it was great. Very good snorkeling, especially if you go on the outside of the reef, which is easily done. Try to do it at high tide. Smithy, the owner, and the other staff are very helpful, friendly & professional. They are always on the lookout to help out people out in the water. Prices are very reasonable. You can bring your own food & drinks. Lots of shade in the patio area. Kayaks are also available.

“Great snorkeling and Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2009

This place is amazing. The rocks form a perfect calm area for not so experienced snorkelers. Life abounds in all areas, like the seagrass beds have huge sand dollars grazing through them, and there's enough coral for huge amounts of parrot fish, plus it's deep enough for spotted-eagle rays! The staff is very attentive, knowledgeable, and Nice! The food was also a good deal, plus they had veggie burgers! I lucked-out and got ride from Maurice around the island on his bus and he is amazing too! Full of local info that was fascinating to hear, especially from someone who grew up on the island! I miss you Maurice! Highly recommended to everyone who goes to the island.

“Wonderful Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2008

My Husband and I held our Rehersal Dinner at this location, Paradise Cove. THe Owner was a pleaseure to work with from the start. Considering the entire location was wiped away in the Hurricane of 1995, it is amazing. They have rebuilt the buildings and it is the perfect place to watch the sunset. My uncle and cousin also went snorkeling the next day and saw sea turtles, star fish and many many fish. Its a great place to go for the day or for a party- but bring bug spray the sand fleas are out of control!
