“This was really cool”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

We took a sail boat to Rose Island for a few hours of beach, snorkeling or boating fun. The water around it was the prettiest blue that I ever saw and had the softest whitest sand I ever saw. The island itself had beautiful rocks and palm trees. It was a paradise.

“Rose Island is Paradise!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Rose Island is a little private island about a 30 minute boat ride from Paradise Island. We paid $25 per person, whereas other snorkeling trips were at least $60. The boat ride there is awesome, you pass by multi-million dollar estates and a lighthouse and there are many photo ops. THen when you get to Rose Island,which is a private island, there are many activities to choose from. There is of course, the bar which is called Sandy Toes, and it serves all kinds of mixed drinks and food. The beach is perfect with white sand and crystal clear water. The water clarity was close to 100% for snorkeling. Beautiful reefs full of angel fish, clown fish, snapper, purple fans, brain coral, etc etc. Too much to list here. They have free beach chairs and rafts and floats. The only thing is you have to bring your own snorkeling gear, but other than that, this was the highlight of our Bahamas trip. Will definetly go again!!

I like the view but I expected more activities, my friend tell us about this trip and I just pay without reading the details but I like the view

“Coral Reef...? Not!!”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

We stayed on Paradise Island and absolutely loved it! For a day excursion we decided to go out to Rose Island... The privacy of the beach was great and lunch was satisfactory but the snorkelling was a joke!! Very, very small reef, barely any sea life and an abundance of sludge floating through your hair... It was awful!
