  • Atlantis at Paradise Island

    Nassau Things to Do

    We had understood from past reviews that we would be able to go into the lobby of the Atlantis resort, but were told by our tour guide that the pressure of cruise ship and other tourists in the place was so great that they had decided to close off most areas of the resort to outsiders. We were able to go in through the casino, and down the hallway...

  • Bahamian Food

    Nassau Restaurants

    Out of all the restaurants we ate at, Twin Brothers was the best. We loved the conch fritters (Bahamian specialty) and the strawberry daiquiris (the best). The drinks (non-alcoholic) were made with fresh ingredients. You can mix and match your desired fruit i.e. mango/strawberry, pineapple/mango, etc … The first time we went the waitress was nice,...

  • Delicious and worth the walk!

    Cable Beach Restaurants

    Delicious! Has sushi and fusion entrees. The mussel appetizers were fantastic, the grilled chicken with mixed salad had the sweet yummy dressing and cheese ravioli was also perfect. Not too heavy on the sauces. Bread was fresh too! Everything is good.

  • Jitney's

    Cable Beach Transportation

    Jitney's are small minibuses that can carry about 20 or so people and cost a set price of $1 for any single journey. They are very useful if you're staying on Cable Beach for getting in/out of downtown Nassau (No's 10 & 10A). They terminate on the corner of Frederick St and Bay St near the Straw Market. My only gripe with them is that they stop at...

  • Swim-With-The-Dolphins

    Salt Cay Things to Do

    This is a 30-minute swim with the dolphins where you do everything you do in the other encounter, but you get in the water with two dolphins, and you're not supported by a platform. They jump over you like a hurdle, and they do what the brochure calls "the incredible foot push." I watched a couple of people be pushed by the dolphins, and it...

  • Close Encounter

    Salt Cay Things to Do

    This is the one where you sit in a little secluded pontoon and you can pet the dolphins and everything. What you do is you wait your turn to be called with your family, and you go into the water, pet the dolphin, dance with it, hug it, kiss it (both for a charming picture) and if you're lucky, you'll get water spit in the face. This actual...

  • Dolphin Encounters!

    Salt Cay Things to Do

    This is something that's fairly expensive to do, so don't put your money into it unless you know your family is going to really appreciate it. There are two different encounters, one is like a petting-zoo type thing where the doplhin does some fun tricks and they video tape you and take some pictures to sell; the other is where you go into a more...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Caroline Wardle runs birding, and biking tours. She used to (and may still) also run kayaking trips. Some trips are:

    Half day on New Providence or Paradise Island, starting at your hotel at 7 am or later until around noon. Included are use of binoculars, spotting scope, field guides and refreshments for the morning. Experts and novices - all welcome

    $59 per person, minimum 2, or $100 for one person, 6 persons maximum. Advance booking required for all tours.

    FULL DAY until 4 pm, $99 per person minimum 2, or $150 for one person.

    HALF-DAY OFF-ROAD BICYCLING TOURS are the same price as the birding tours. A guided tour of shady woodland trails, open forest, the seashore and mangrove creeks, visit the historic village of Adelaide. Choose a relaxed, easy ride or a longer route. Also offered are more challenging rides for the seasoned cyclist.

    MULTI-DAY BIRDING TRIPS TO THE FAMILY ISLANDS From November to May, multi day birding trips to Andros, Eleuthera, Cat Island, San Salvador, Crooked and Acklins Islands and Great Inagua. These tours may be from one to six days in duration. Maximum number of people is six, no minimum.

    For the multiday trips, she will pick up at the airport, and you can stay at her house when you arrive. When we were there, she was gone on a trip to Andros with one person.

    We cruised in in October 2007 to Nassau- a little skeptical of all the drivers waiting at the end of the pier.. some were so agressive and looked shady.. But..

    hooked up with a great Taxi owner and guide- Mr. Knowles 242-361-5920 or
    He was great- spent 3 1/2 hours with us for $25 - we gave him a tip too.. took us all over the island- will take you anywhere you'd like- very knowlegdable and informative- kept up an entertaining commentary on all things Bahamian- answered all our questions. An excellent driver ( not reckless like some of them). 6 of us went in his spacious air conditioned van and had a great time. I highly recommend you give him a call if you'd like a tour and local info.
