We booked the excursion from the Paradise Cove website for our Freeport day off the NCL Sky and this was the highlight excursion of our vacation (including Atlantis). Easy to book and good communication from the owner. We were met by Maurice at 9am from the port - not only is he knowledgeable about the island, but also very funny and caring (he had to send a family of 3 to their other bus and stopped before leaving to be sure they got there). Paradise Cove is one prime piece of real estate about a 30 minute drive from the port - beautiful private beach with a gorgeous reef for snorkeling. Deadman's Reef is large - be sure to swim out to it (though with floatation device this is not that hard) - for $5 you can get a boat out there. We snorkeled for about 1.5 hours and saw sting and manta rays, several sea turtles (so close you could touch them), dolphin, a barracuda, needlefish, parrotfish, and many, many more tropical fish. Chairs are $3. They have a snack stand and bar - great grouper fingers and conch fritters and cheap drinks (beware a very stron Bahama Mama for $3.50). They take credit cards. The total for the excursion including the round trip transportation and rental of snorkeling gear and fins is $35 per adult ($20 for child) and well worth the money. The beach is gorgeous. Very relaxing day.
