    • 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

      I'm looking for a room near Adelaide Village for 4 nights in April and would like to pay under 100/night. Wondering if there's anything not heavily advertised, a B & B type thing. Not looking to do the usual tourist thing--just a Florida resident who has a friend in Adelaide, would like to have my own room nearby during the visit.

    • Where to go when on cruise ship

      The Bahamas Jan 29, 2014 at 4:44 AM

      We will be arriving at Nassau the end of March. What is there to do at this port. We have been there several times and did not do much. Went over to Atlantas and walked around also did the straw market. Would prefer not to repeat either. ( Not a fan ) Just looking for a nice beach that we could hang out, get lunch and drinks. Use of facilities a must. We read some reviews about safety issues at this port. Are they a factor? We have read about beach access by the Rui, but it sounds like the use of facilities is a factor.We do not arrive until the afternoon and leave at night.

      We will be chartering a sailboat out of Nassau to sail as far as Staniel Cay and back. We have to provision for 8 people for 10 days. I saw the website for FoodFtore2Go. Are their prices a lot more expensive than in the SuperValue store in Nassau? At $60.00 a case of beer, we might have to switch to vodka!

    • All inclusive or pay for everything seperately?

      The Bahamas Jan 18, 2014 at 8:18 AM

      We are traveling to the Bahamas for our honeymoon in early november. I've looked into Sandals all inclusive and it's super high, $600 per night for the two of us. I know its going to be expensive but I was taken back a bit at that cost. Could we save more if we pay for everything sperately, food, hotel, activities?

    • Bahamas out island advice

      The Bahamas Dec 19, 2013 at 9:03 AM

      I hope this isn't too general. I would like to visit one of the Bahamas out islands (not Grand Bahama or Nassau) for the first time but am having difficulty choosing which island. I want to go early January 2014.

      Things I like to do are snorkel, explore island by scooter or bike, SCUBA, laz on the beach, kayak, site see,

      Q1. Will the water be cold? The island chain is maybe 200 miles North to South so maybe water warmer in the southern islands?

      Q2. Based on my interests and time of year, which out island would you recommend and why?

      Q3. Any lodging recommendations? I would like good value. No top end expensive places.

      Thanks for your help.

      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!

      Best regards,
