Island Tours of the Bahamas
Tours in the Bahamas vary as much as the islands themselves, covering just about every interest, length, and price range. While the Bahamas' larger towns, like Nassau and Freeport, have many interesting historical sites that can be navigated easily without a guide, seeing the sites in the more secluded outer regions of the Bahamas is much better when accompanied by someone who knows the area and can point out things of note. Every major island in the Bahamas has something unique to offer, and you won't have any trouble finding a tour operator willing to show you - by land, sea, or air - their favorite spots.
The Bahamas biggest attractions are its waters - don't visit without taking a boat tour. Luckily, operators of all varieties depart from the harbor in the Bahamas capital region of Nassau every day. You can hop aboard one of Island Tours' or Island Fantasy's party catamarans for a half-day snorkeling tour of the Bahamas beautiful Rose Island, or enjoy a more leisurely cruise in Nassau harbor run by Flying Cloud. Ballymena will custom-design your boat tour of the Bahamas main or outer islands, with a focus on exploring the Bahamas' heritage and best cultural sites. For something a little quicker, take a powerboat tour of the Exuma Cays by Powerboat Adventures, where you can feed the Bahamas "friendly" sharks and stingrays or just relax on the beach. If you'd prefer a self-powered water tour of the Bahamas, rent a kayak from Kayak Nature Tour on Grand Bahama and spend hours ogling the flora and fauna of Lucayan National Park. You may also tour the park on land through East End Adventures, which also visits Grand Bahamas famous blue holes.
For an unparalleled bird's eye view of the Bahamas, you can organize helicopter and sea-plane tours in Nassau. Seaplane Safaris offers hour tours of the Bahamas, as well as full-day trips to the Bahamas' out islands, including lunch and snorkeling. A similar package is available to Norman and Allen's Cay. Paradise Island Helicopters have 10, 20, or 30 minute tour options for up to four people for a more personal aerial guide of the Bahamas.
