What a nice spot to snorkel. This family owned facility has a very safe spot to snorkel and observe tropical water life. There were sea turtles, a sting ray, a moray eel (small and harmless) and a variety of beautiful tropical fish on this reef that you access from the beach. The facility offers changing rooms, and all the equipment... More

I was lucky enough to spend my birthday here snorkelling the reef. You have to pay a small fee to use the facilities but it's a beautiful spot. We used our friends snorkelling gear so didn't have to hire any. The reef is not too far out and we saw beautiful turtles swimming around. My husband went further out and... More

Do not pre-book or at least have a plan B for the day! This place is probably ok if you are already on the island, but we cannot recommend it for cruise passengers or day-trippers. We booked our snorkeling tour well in advance and agreed driver to meet us at the port. When we arrived, there was nobody waiting for... More

Transportation on time, driver was great. They have shower, locker and changing rooms. Covered area with lots of picnic tables and good food and prices. Chairs, umbrellas, kayaks and paddle boards for rent at very reasonable packages. Book directly is my recommendation. Snorkeling was awesome. Took us 3 trips out over 6 hours to see it all. Nice area near... More

We booked our excursion with Gaylene, in one of the booths along the water at Port Lucaya Marketplace. She was upbeat and very helpful in finding a snorkeling adventure for our short stay in Freeport. The excursion, gear, and transportation from our resort was $40. A van and Rusty, the friendly driver picked us up from our hotel and gave... More

Very rough walking in water. My feet were cut and scratched. -- take water shoes! We had to swim out to reef, our cruise ship announced snorkeling was canceled but Paridise Cove sent us out. Water was so rough we fought the wave the entire time. Not a very good experience. The food was okay. Just not for me.

12$ a person gets you a nice spot to snorkel and soak up the sun. Bring everything you need this place is small and does not have a lot of amenities. That said its very private and offers a beautiful beach sheltered from the sea by a large coral rock. there is a small but beautiful reef on the ocean... More

This is by far one of the best places to snorkel. Its a bit of a drive to get there but worth it. We rented a car for 2 days and this was one of the places we went. It cost to get on the beach and to snorkel. The water is very shallow and you can walk out quite... More

We did the Paradise Cove Day Pass with transport from the cruise port in Freeport. Booked on VIATOR for $65 per person. The shuttle picked us up right outside the gate and it was a 20 minute ride. The driver gave us some nice history along the way. Once we got there our day pass included snorkel equipment, paddle boarding,... More
