I went on the same day the previous reviewer went on. Miserable stormy weather, especially later that day. I had never snorkeled before so this was a perfect beginner's location, as mentioned before. There were some hits and misses, with most of the misses being weather related. You get a simple drive by the large homes on Paradise Island (Oprah, Michael Jordan, etc) and then off to Rose Island. You choose between remote beach first or snorkeling first, with lunch served in between. Travis was pleasant and professional. Be aware during rainfall, there is probably not enough covered seating on deck, but there is plenty of room below deck. Appetizers were a surprise, nothing special, but also not necessary and a pleasant surprise. We chose to snorkel first. The water is about 8 feet deep. My friend had snorkeled before in Cancun and said Cancun was way better. I traveled along the shore for a bit, seeing a stingray, and some coral. Not a lot of fish that day. But I enjoyed the experience, and the remoteness. Travis grilled ribs and chicken on deck, and served both along with cole slaw, baked beans, and bread. I thought it was quite delicious. Then we switched and went to the beach. Not much to do except swim and hang out, but again, remote and relaxing. Then back to Nassau, except by sail rather than motor. This was a much slower return than arriving. The weather was terrible, but Travis did a good job directing his staff with the sails. We had as much rum punch as we wanted, and then the bottom fell out with the rain. Got nasty quick. I agree that the best part of the experience may have been meeting the 10 or so strangers with us. Made for a good time. They accept CASH ONLY so please do not arrive with credit cards. Made for a mess with many at the end when Travis let them go on the trip without paying first and then had to take them to an ATM at the end. I was annoyed with them attempting to argue a lower price due to weather, etc. Yes, it was a little pricey, but considering it was all day and lunch was included, as well as round trip transportation it was less than what a day at Atlantis would have set you back, especially since the outdoor activities did not exist there that day.
