I want to go to the beach near to the cruise port because i have to meet my friends back there at 1pm. what is a super close beach that is in walking distance or only a short (10 min or under) cab ride away?
My wife myself and our 3 teenage boys are looking to travel to Grand Bahama Island for 1 week in early August. We are looking for an area that has good fishing. We would like to find a resort that let's you rent kayaks and fishing gear and be able to go out from the resort and reef fish from the kayaks. We also are looking for spear fishing opportunities and lobster hunting. Snorkeling is also an activity that we would greatly enjoy however reef fishing is the main reason we are going to Grand Bahama Island. If anyone can recommend captains or resorts that fit these guidelines it would be greatly appreciated.
Is there a public fishing pier on Grand Bahama Island? I can only find 'guided' fishing trips. We just want to fish from shore or a pier. We will be arriving on a cruise boat.
Can I rent a guitar at Grand Bahama Island for a week? Is there a guitar / music store on the island?
As I look at the map I see that there are more than one port for cruise ships....which port does carnival dock?
Does the Viva Wyndham Fortuna beach resort have a shuttle bus to and from the port?
Hi, we're considering going back to Freeport soon but are really interested in the better fishing and snorkeling sights. We went to high rock last time but unfortunately if was mostly high tide while we were there and of course as is with most cruises our time was very limited. The best part of our trip strangely enough was our taxi driver (Marco Roberts 242-442-8372 #458) who also acted as an excellent tour guide, but we really already had our minds made up about the beach instead of asking if he knew any better places to snorkel that time of day. Does anyone have any information on the best places to snorkel at high or low tide on the island? Deals on fishing trips, etc?
I am arriving on Bahamas Celebration cruise ship to the Grand Bahama Island soon and the last time I arrived I only saw that their were taxi's availible to get to the mainland that were very expensive. Is there bus transportation from the port to the mainland that I might have overlooked last time I was there. I hear that there is bus transportation on the Island but Im not sure if it is available at the port. Please help me and my friends save a few pennies so we can have more fun with the drinks once at the mainland. Kevin
My husband and I are planning a trip to Lucaya from Florida. I heard that you can travel there by cruise ship (air is too costly and we dont really care to go on a typical cuise.

We will be cruising at the end of February and one of our stops is Freeport. Are there any beaches close to the port that my family and I can enjoy or will we need to get to the Port Lucaya Marketplace area?
We have visited your beautiful island many, many times the last was Oct 2010. We are planning another trip in June 2012 and are having trouble finding transportation. We have flown when we lived in GA, but we now live in FL and the cost for 3 of us to fly is1384 which is insane. We used to take the Discovery cruise but they are out of business we understand. Is there another ferry service or ship that we can take, stay our week in Freeport and return to either Fort Lauderdale or Miami?
We'll be visiting Freeport in November & are looking for things to do other than snorkelling & diving. My travelmate is not a fan of being under water than long, so looking for something very fun! We're up for pretty much anything that will last our time in port. Thanks in advance for any replies!!
We are a party of 6 and I am wondering what would be the most economical and easy way to get from the Freeport Airport to the Viva Wyndham. Is the taxi price that I have seen posted of15, per person?

I am coming to Freeport on a cruise ship 7/15/09 at 8am. What is my most "economical" means of transporation? I have to get from the port to Superior Watersports-Port Lucaya Marina by 9:00am. Thanks, Shelley
Our cruise ship gets into Freeport early in the morning and I've selected the glass-bottom boat tour with my mother for the morning. The tour ends around noon. What to do after that? Can someone tell me if A)Does the tour end anywhere near the shopping areas or B)if not, does the tour end anywhere near where we can hop a local bus to the shopping area? Dont' want to spend$$ on taxis...
I just booked a trip for my boyfriend and I to go to Grand Bahama Island in early January. What is the average temperature that time of year for that particular island? I've been told that since it's one of the northernmost points of the Bahama island chain that it can be kind of chilly...We're from Minneapolis, Minnesota so anything beats 20 below zero but I would like to know what to expect as far as air and water temp. Thanks.
I'm flying into Ft. Lauderdale during Labor day and I want to know if my best option to get to the Bahamas is to take the Discovery Cruise over to the island? If not, what are the best options. I will be traveling alone so what are the best hotels to stay at once I arrive in the Bahamas. What are my travel options to get to the hotel from the port? Thanks, TU
I've read there are cheap busses that run all over the island. I'd like to check out the less touristy places, like the e. end, lucaya nat. park, gold Rock & Barbary beach. I'll be a single female traveling alone. Is this safe? If so, do the busses go to these places?
I am going to Freeport in 8 days. I was wondering if you knew if there was restaurants near our hotel. we are staying at the royal palms suites. also, is there anything that delivers, like dominos or such a place. i am really concerned that not having a vehicle will be a terrible thing and we wont have any place to eat for 3 days. thanks KIM
Fellow Travelers, Are there any retiree's living on the island that can give me some insight on living there? I have visited the island several times, and I am seriously thinking about retiring there. Thank you, James
My friend and I are headed out to Grand Bahama Island in June and I was wondering if you could let me know the best ( and safest) places for two 25 year old girls to meet some fun people and have some fun on the island. I have been reading some of the reviews and I am seeing that the nightlife is not the greatest compared to the other islands and I was wondering if you had any good tips or places you could suggest. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated ! Thanks, char
