    • Are there car ferries to the Bahamas?

    • Cheapest way to see the Exuma Cays while staying on Great Exuma

      Exuma District Apr 14, 2014 at 9:19 AM

      My fiance and I are travelling to Exuma end of May to get married. Most all our available (ie: saved up) fiances are going into the trip and resort stay so that we get the free wedding. This leave very little disposable income to do much else with. I really want to see the swimming pigs and swim with them and want to visit the iguanas. Most of the boat trips to do so cost a lot. Through the resort it's 325 per person (650 for the both of us!) and the cheapest is 200 per person. I considered renting a boat on our own to go up there one afternoon but the only place I can find is Minn's and you have to stay in Elizabeth Harbor.

      So does anyone know a really cheap alternative to seeing these islands or a cheap boat rental place? Neither of us have our captains license but I am no stranger to a basic power boat as those are used for fishing where I'm from (as well as pontoons and such) I understand that this is not quite the same as the ocean waters and would have to really see it to estimate it for myself but I was thinking of a very small (12-15 footer) boat that could stay close to the coasts for traveling up through the Cays there. Are there any locals that do this sort of thing for a low cost?

      Just being there is going to be a fantastic thing and being able to see water that clear and blue. This will be my first time ever being out of the country! :) I'm a water baby by nature and nothing thrills me more than spending a week in those waters. Any advice or help at all will be most appreciated. Thanks

      Hi, thanks to all for your comments, they are really helpful!
      I wonder if you can guide me since it's my first time to Bahamas. I am planning to arrive on October, 17th and planning to stay for 14 days together with my Mom. Do you think it's worth staying 2 weeks or would you recommend only one? Also, I am thinking to book at the Sheraton Nassau beach & resort....any comments? Is it a good choice or is it too far away.
      I really appreciate any suggestions!

    • #10 Jitney Cable Beach

      Nassau Jul 21, 2013 at 12:02 PM

      Our family is considering renting a home on West Bay Street near Saunders Beach. I understand the #10 jitney runs along this route.

      I have many questions:

      1). We will be a large group (14 or 15 people). The age range will be from 13-years old up to 80-years old. Do you think being this far away (about 4 miles from the Atlantis resort) we all can still find enough to do?

      It seems like the younger kids will be able to do many things like take a day trip to the Atlantis waterpark, play in the ocean, etc. (basically they can entertain themselves). BUT, we have some concerns for the people who will be in their 50's and two of the people who will be in their 70's.

      Does anyone know if any of the hotels nearby have entertainment like live bands, shows, etc.?

      I know the jitney stops running at night, but it would be no problem for us to get a taxi. But a few in my group expressed some concern about finding enough stuff for people to do who don't wanna rent jet skis or do the typical "beachy" stuff. See what I'm saying? From the Saunders Beach area to the high rise area, will we be able to find activities at various resorts (or other locations) where some of us can check out bands, music, events, etc. WITHOUT having a special wrist band or pass to a given resort?

      2.) In addition, as I said, we will be a large group. Would you recommend a rental van? If we did rent a van, are there places to park it should we drive it to the high rise areas? We'd hate to rent a van and have it sit, but on the other hand with so many people needing to go so many different ways, would a rental van be a good idea?

      Thanks for any input!

      Beach access near cruise ships

      I am looking for a nice public beach near the docked cruise ships to spend time with my family. We don't really have time for an excursion because the ship leaves in early afternoon. All that I have found are pricey excursions with very minimal time to play at the beach. We are going for the sand and water experience. Can anyone help?

      Hi, all. Our group is doing a girls' trip to Nassau mid-July. This will be (collectively) our first trip to Bahamas. We've figured out flights and where to stay, but we are not really interested in doing the whole Atlantis/Casino scene. We'd really like to find out how to explore some of the more primitive beaches and also we'd like to know the best way(s) to get ourselves to some of the out islands, especially Eleuthera. Any and all comments, suggestions, warnings, sarcastic jabs, free money, free anything....would be appreciated.

      Blue Lagoon Island

      Nassau Feb 17, 2012 at 9:12 AM

      Is Blue Lagoon Island worth visiting for the day if you are not planning on the Dolphin Encounter? I am stopping in Nassau for a day on a Disney Cruise, and cannot afford to take my family to the Atlantis excurions. The beach day at the Blue Lagoon Island sounds affordable, and pretty, with lunch included and a few toys to play with in the water. Just wanted any advice...I mostly want to enjoy the day at the beach. I wouldn't mind the dolphin thing, but it seems expensive. I'm not sure how much it costs directly at the island (rather than booking through the Disney Cruise...)
