“Sandy Toes - Rose Island”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This was a fun trip. Catamaraned to Rose Island where there was a private beach. We snorkeled alone and then did group snorkeling on the rocky side of the island. There was a lot of walking on the island and climbing (fine for us but if you have trouble hiking up hill I would not recommend it). There was a nice buffet lunch. The restroom facilites were nice - figured there would be out houses on the island! The beach was beautiful.

Thank you for your compliments! And yes, the island is not handicap accessible but more suggestible for someone looking for a more "soft adventure" experience. We hope to see you again!

Sandy regards,
The Sandy Toes

“Nice day away from Atlantis”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This was a fun time away from the disney-like atmosphere of atlantis. A quiet and peaceful island surrounded by beautiful blue sea. We went snorkeling and had a good time. Saw lots of fish and found a few huge starfish. Staff was helpful and fun and lunch was good, but the best part of lunch was eating on the deck with an incredible view of the water. We met the friendly island pig. I believe her name was Rosie. My boys loved meeting her and she loved the attention. Nice day.

“The Best Day Ever ...”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

I was just on this tour May 10, 2013 and had to immediately write a review. This tour was without a doubt the best excursion I have ever booked when cruising to Nassau! I was with my 16 year old daughter and she loved it!

It started out a little crazy as our cruise ship was a bit late disembarking. Our half day tour was at 1pm and we were just leaving our ship (in Nassau) at 12:15pm. We got to the "fast ferry" and waiting there for 15+ minutes ... it is island time so no point in stressing! We made it to Paradise Island right at 1pm and literally ran to meet the Sandy Toes gang. They were awesome and we were on our way ... whew, finally a moment to catch our breath and relax! The boat ride to Rose Island was very nice, but it was absolute paradise when you arrived! Beautiful, secluded beaches, hammocks, comfortable beach chairs and you could roam and explore the trails without intervention! We rented a tube and paddled around for a bit. Only $5 (with refundable $5 deposit). We then ordered a couple of cheeseburgers and I'm not sure if we were starving or they were just the best burgers! The restroom facilities were extremely clean as was everything on the island. I would recommend this excursion to anyone and everyone! Oh, and seeing Rosie the pig was a bonus! Thanks to the Sandy Toes staff for making my daughter's 16th birthday one to remember ...

“SandyToes Beach Extravaganza”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

This tour is by far the most enjoyable, comprehensive, and fulfilling experience one could desire. Come see what true Paradise in the Bahamas is all about. The beach, staff on the island, food, coral reef exploration and snorkeling, facilities, patio bar and deck. You name it, they have it. Even Rosie the pig is there for your enjoyment.You have not lived until you get your toes sandy at SANDY TOES!!

“Nice getaway from the busy Nassau scene”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Great place to escape the tourist scene in Nassau. The facilities that Sandy Toes offers far surpass those of other snorkeling companies that operate in the Bahamas. We booked this tour and our friends booked another. When we meet the following evening to share our experiences, we found we paid half what they did and we received far better services then they did.

The beach is amazing, lunch was great, and the staff exceed your expectations.
