Explore Paradise Reef – a haven for marine life
You can snorkel as much or as little as you want
Duration: 2 hrs, 4 hrs, 6 hrs (same price)
Spend a day at Paradise Cove and snorkel in one of the most beautiful reefs in the world briefing by a professional instructor. Paradise reef is home to an array of colorful fish, turtles, and wild dolphins–a real life idyl in the heart of the Bahamas.
You will have direct access to the reef right off the beach, where you will be given safety instructions before you swim out to some of the best snorkeling reefs, accompanied by your experienced guide.
Snorkelers will encounter an array of colorful fish, shellfish, sea turtles, wild dolphins, and other forms of marine life out on the coral reef. The water near the reef is shallow, so shallow you can almost stand up and look down into the crystal waters and see the colorful fish swim by.
This is a great excursion for the entire family, with something to please everyone whether an adventurer or a beach bum!

“Wonderful tour with Sharina”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Alexandria, United States on March 26th, 2014 Sharina was the driver for the tour that day and took us to Paradise Beach for our excursion of snorkeling and sunbathing. Paradise Cove was really lovely, all the folks working there were wonderful, and the beach was beautiful. Unfortunately, the wind was really kicking up that day, so snorkeling was out and swimming was "at your own risk". But no worries! We had a wonderful time relaxing on the beach and having a few beers. Sharina asked if we'd like to shop instead of getting beaten by the sand, so we did. She also took us past the brewery to buy a few beers. She really made our trip enjoyable - she let us ask her all manner of questions about the islands which helped our understanding of Bahamian people and life, but how the tourism industry is impacting the islands. I know our tour is probably a lot different from others, but even if the weather is unpleasant, there is still so much to do in Freeport! Thank you, Sharina!
“Great company; so-so beach.”
Reviewed by William from friendswood, United States on September 17th, 2013 Because the ship I sailed on (Carnival Magic) kept their clocks on central time throughout the cruise and docked at 9:00am eastern time but the ship's clock was docked at 8:00 central time, I had to spend $8(international call) to confirm from this company what time I was going to be picked up. The shore excursion was to begin at 9:00 eastern time. Anyway the company was quite good in their service but the beach itself was nothing to write home about. I was reminded 3 times by the beach staff that they worked on tips,which was all they seemed to care about. On a scale of 1 to 10, the transportation service gets a 10,the beach a 7 and the beach staff a 5.
“Great people, good equipment, long swim before you see any fish.”
Reviewed by James from Syracuse, United States on July 17th, 2013 People were very friendly and willing to share information. They took good care of us. Van was old but adequate. Driver, Cap't Jack, gave us much info about the surroundings as we traveled to the water. Snorkeling equipment was good. The instructors were as helpful as we needed them to be. One down side. It took a while to swim the distance to the reef where the fish were and time off the cruise ship was short. Good trip for moderate to strong swimmers.
“The trip happened but Nako Brice, the vendor, was very unorganized.”
Reviewed by Braeden from Fairfax, United States on May 23rd, 2013 Nako is really a taxi driver. Just go to paradise island yourself its cheaper and easier. The owner of the beach and reef is really great.
“Nice quite beach and beautiful place to snorkle”
Reviewed by Michelle from Cameron Mills, United States on April 28th, 2013 We took this excursion while in Freeport on the carnival pride. It was about a 25 minute ride there. The driver was very informative told us about the history of the Bahamas. The beach was beautiful and there were only a few other people there. They gave us a quick class on how to snorkle then we were off on our own at our own pace. It is a little bit of a swim out to the reef but not to difficult. We saw lots of fish coral and urchins! This trip is well worth the money! I would recommend this for anyone looking for a nice relaxing beach and snorkelling trip.
“A fun day snorkeling. The guides were great and the water was clear.”
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Billings, United States on February 22nd, 2013 We had a good time at Paradise Cove. The water was a little chilly but the guides were good about getting everyone in the water. The coral is not too much to look and there weren't too many fishes to see but we had a blast walking almost all the way out to the rocks. It was shallow and we only had to swim in a few places otherwise we walked. There were bathrooms that were clean and concessions were available for a reasonable price.
“Good service. Would recommend.”
Reviewed by Alisa from Jacksonville, United States on September 11th, 2012 Driver was an hour late picking us up from the cruise ship terminal - told us there was a mix up with arrival time. However, he drove us quickly to our destination and told us he would pick us up an hour later to give us the full duration of promised excursion time. I would use them again in the future as there were no real problems and the driver was friendly and professional.
