    • 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

    • rainy season on paradise island

      by Xenawantsapony Online Now Apr 21, 2011 at 11:22 AM

      I am thinking about a trip to Paradise Island in the Bahamas in June. I know this is prime rainy season. I also know we cannot predict the weather. What I would like to know is if generally the rain comes for a short time during the day followed by the sun, or if when it rains, does it rain cats and dogs all day long? If anyone knows from experience, I'd love to find out so I can decide whether to take a chance on booking or not.
      Thanks.

    • Atlantis Resort Meal Plans

      by utwofan Online Now Apr 17, 2009 at 5:19 PM

      We are planning a trip in June but are confused about the meal plans. Different web sites indicate different restaurants under the regular or gourmet plans. Our main question is if eating at other than a buffet, is there a special menu at the restaurants for those opting for the meal plan or is it a choice of any one entre' from their regular menu? Also, for anyone that has used a meal plan do you have any advice as to best times or particular restaurants to concentrate on using? One more question on the meal plans, is the charge for the meal made to your room then deducted at checkout or no indication made on your bill at all whether you used it or not? Thank you in advance for your reponse.

      I am taking a cruise to Nassau next week. I wondered if I could take the ferry water taxi from the harbor to Paradise island and Atlantis and stay at Atlantis resort for a few hours and then return back on the ferry taxi? Also is it easy to walk to the Atlantis resort from where the ferry water taxi stops?

      Atlantis - Refillable Drink Cups?

      by rodsdoll97 Online Now May 19, 2008 at 4:06 PM

      Going to visit Atlantis in July 08. Someone told me that when they visited, the resort (restaurants?) sold large refillable plastic drink cups. They told me that the resort won't inform you, but that those cups can be refilled for free while you are there. Does this sound remotely familiar to anyone? Thanks

My 12 yr old son is in a wheelchair and I need to find out how to get him from the airport to the Atlantis resort in Nassau. I don't care what it costs, we need to make sure we can get him to the resort or we can't book the trip. The wheelchair does not fold up but can sit in the back of a van. Can you help?
