First of all Paradise Island is beautiful and well worth going to experience. HOWEVER, if you plan to go, you might consider taking alternate transportation to the island!!!! The day we went (August 21) the seas were rough...did that slow up the boat??? NO, we were slammed around, thrown off our seats with some of us suffering injuries (coming and going) people were screaming in pain with the impacts, but STILL, the crew refused to slow down until I yelled out "stop this boat". They then stopped briefly and moved some peoples to the rear of the boat...guess how many could move...not many! They then proceeded to go back up to full speed through the rough seas!! Some of us could hardly walk after getting back to shore, one of my friends and myself were included in this group, and I continue to hurt through my back 4days after our rough ride and I have average muscle tone. The rough speed boat ride and the boat "captain" made our adventure to Paradise Island an adventure I WOULD NOT REPEAT if I had to return to the island via the speed boat mode of transportation! So please, consider a different type of transportation to this beautiful island other than the speed boat! Your back, hips and neck will thank you forever for your wise decision, and I wish some "other" guests to the island had written about this, it couldn't be a one time event because there was absolutely no consideration for comfort and avoidance of injury for paying customers from the crew/captain while traveling on the speedboat provided. I just tell it like it is, and there isn't any sane reason for your adventure to be destroyed by crew whose only consideration is dictated by their own agenda and not the safety and comfort of paying customers. The tour guides were not interactive at the island and short staffed resulting in people left behind going through the openings to the deep water!
BTW: we payed for the VIP ($20 extra) giving access to liquor (only rum and coke), but found out that It was free to everyone there...we felt ripped off!
