* THIS IS NOT A HOTEL OR B&B. IT SHOULD BE LISTED UNDER ACTIVITIES/THINGS TO DO *

Snorkeling was absolutely amazing. I saw a group of sea turtles, a very large ray, a small octopus, and at least 200-300 fish of different varieties once I got to the reef/past the rocks.

It is a very low key and small beach with decent snorkelling equipment and fresh well priced food (which is different from the rest of the island which is expensive). Go early and stay late because you are going to wish you had snorkeled some more.

My husband and I visited Deadman's Reef at Paradise Cove and loved it. We didn't stay at the resort as we had to go back to the cruise. We snorkeled and kayaked here. The place is beautiful although small, it is well maintained, and all the people were very friendly and helpful.
They provide you with snorkel and kayaking equipments. The prices were extremely cheap!! They also pick you up from the cruise ship and drop you back. There are fixed time for pick-up and drop-off, so make sure to call and find out.
Try the local drink called "Bahama Mama" :)

Be sure to go on the other side of the reef to snorkel and get close to the reef...it was amazing! It is an easier swim during high tide. We went out during high tide and came in during low, when coming in we were basically swimming on the grass and that felt really weird. The rocks and sand on bottom of the ocean floor were hard so it was easier to swim than walk in the fins. If you have never snorkeled we found it easier to walk backwards once you had the fins on. The staff was very friendly and the lunch was good also. The island punch is called Goombay Punch. It is a sweet punch that is very good. We were picked up from and delivered to our boat on time. We were on Carnival Fantasy. You must take at least one underwater camera and be sure to save some film when kayaking! We had used all of our pics up during the snorkeling and didn't get any pictures of the clear water when we were on the kayaks! We are ready to go back...thank you Mr. Nathan Parker for a wonderful tour of the island on January 9, 2011!

We did not stay at the hotel because we were on the Bahamas Celebration Cruise Line. We took a taxi to Paradise Cove which was $80.00 round trip for the both of us. We got dropped off around 10:30am and asked to be picked up by 3pm. We had so much fun snorkeling at Deadman's Reef. The views are fantastic with plenty of sea life. We also ate at the Red Bar. Cheeseburgers, French Fries and THE BEST Conch Fritters. I also am hooked on High Rock Beer. The cost of the taxi was priceless to be on your secluded beach and snorkeling in your blue waters.

We visited Paradise Cove during our Cruise in December. Barry's father picked us up from the cruise port and he gave a wonderful narration about the island of Freeport. It was unusually quite windy that day at Freeport and so it wasn't the typical Bahamian weather. Nevertheless, Barry made wet suits available for us and Ken guided me to the reef for snorkelling. Due to the windy weather, the ocean was a bit choppy and so the snorkelling was not the best. However, this place is so beautiful that you will fall in love with it. They treat you very well and make sure that you are very comfortable during your stay there. I would like to visit Paraside Cove again when it is really sunny.
