Not much snorkeling from the beach. No healthy reefs near enough to the shore.

I've been on the Stuart Cove

snorkel excursion twice but

prefer the Flying Cloud catamaran

sailboat snorkel excursion to

Rose Island.I have been on

the F.C. trip five times, I like

it that much.

The F.C. excursion takes you

over a reef that is much shallower

than the reefs on S.C..

With the tops of the coral only 6 feet

from the surface, the F.C. trip makes

it easier to dive down among the

gorgeous coral and many

fish species. Also, the sailboat ride

out and back is very quiet and relaxing.

They also will pick you up at your hotel.

The trip is $70. Their website is:

www.flyingcloud.info

You can make free reservations

via e-mail by visiting their website

for the address.

Eric, you can't self promote your website on trip advisor. If you want to promote, you need to pay for advertising.

The best place to snorkel "in" Nassau is actually "off" of Nassau - e.g. the reefs at the E end of Atholl Island & the ones around Rose Island.

Best way to get there? Boat... Flying Cloud is great, also Sandy Toes and Barefoot Sailing Cruises. Check out the various companies' websites, see which boat/trip 'grabs' you LOL Also, ask email companies directly & ask questions before you go! E.G. how long will I be at the reef? is the water less than 15' deep? how many people will be on the trip? there won't be any scuba divers on board with a snorkel trip, will there?

Happy Snorkeling!!!

Bklyngirl11 - Welcome to TA Bahamas!

Where are you staying? Are you flying into Nassau?

Consider doing a day trip that takes you out to Rose Island - gorgeous clear water there, like being in a swimming pool - to get there, check out Flying Cloud http://www.flyingcloud.info or Barefoot Sailing Cruises https:/…BarefootSailingCruises or Sandy Toes http://www.sandytoesroseisland.com. The beaches at Rose are wonderful!!! Sandy Toes is probably the cheapest, and Barefoot Sailing the most expensive, but they also probably take the smallest number of people, which is always nice!

You can also do a day trip to Harbour Island - it is $131pp... this will only give you about 4 hours on the island, but it's a fun way to spend the day!
