Wr had a great time on this trip. A 30mins boat trip to the stunningly beautiful Rose Island. A well organised and run trip, with covid and water safety in mind there was always someone looking out for when swimming or snorkeling. Free snokel/mask and fins, a great lunch and free drinks from the bar, whats not to like. The beach was stunning, although a bit too rough for swimming on our day, we still took a walk along the deserted beach. We even saw the pigs in the water and on the beach! Great value, great fun, just do it!

Very well organized, were picked up from the hotel on time and brought back again. The staff were very nice and attentive. The water on Rose Island was crystal clear and the beach was amazing! The pigs were very trusting and you could feed them and swim with them. Lunch was tasty and had a good variety. The trip was definitely worth the money!

The trip was great and the island was beautiful! The trip is highly recommended! We booked with a pick up at the hotel, is highly recommended. Because it's cheaper than a taxi from Nassau Downtown! You will be brought back to the hotel afterwards! The excursion is well organized and all staffs are incredibly nice. And you also get to see the Bahamas pigs !.
