      My mom and I are planning a snorkeling trip. We have been all over Jamaica and Costa Rica and really enjoy the cliff and rock snorkeling. Question is when is the best time and place in the Bahamas. We don't enjoy big cities and would love a small town that is not so commercial. Asking a lot in this question. lol.

    • Trying to plan a trip

      by Brad111 Online Now Apr 1, 2013 at 3:40 PM

      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.

      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

    • Transportation from Ft Lauderdale/Miami to Grand Bahama Island

      by lucymae28 Online Now Jan 2, 2012 at 11:00 AM

      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?

    • Is it cold in January?

      by 79jack Online Now Aug 17, 2008 at 3:46 PM

      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.
