 Sunshine Glass Bottom Boat Tour   [N02]

Rating: 3

Curious about what’s under that aquamarine water? Take this excursion and you won’t even have to get wet. The 70-foot boat has one sundeck, a covered deck, restrooms, cash bar, and (what else?) a glass bottom. You’ll cruise the Nassau Harbor, then head off to the coral reefs—if the weather permits, you see a shipwreck, too. Typical meeting times are 10:45 am and 2:30 pm. Cruiser reviews are mostly negative. It is a “bit of a walk from the ship to the pier” where the glass bottom boat is moored. Once on the boat, the “scratched up” glass bottom was “way too small” and you may have to stand to see. On the other hand, it “wasn’t too expensive” and the “kids really enjoyed it.” Overall, the experience was a “complete and total” waste of money for some, while others thought it was a “nice little ride.”

 Blue Lagoon Island Sea Lion Encounter   [N40]

Your adventure begins with a 40-minute voyage aboard a high-speed, double-decker catamaran through Nassau Harbour. Once you arrive at Blue Lagoon Island, the sea lion trainers will meet you and introduce you to these fascinating marine mammals. Then it’s time to get in the waist-deep water for your hands-on encounter with the friendly sea lions. You’ll learn how to communicate with the sea lions, feed them, and offer positive reinforcement. You’ll also have the opportunity to get the sea lion version of a kiss, handshake, and hug! Afterward, you’ll observe the resident dolphins and have some photo ops. Note that you’ll spend about 15 minutes in the water with the sea lions. Guests must be at least 48” tall to participate; guests age 8–12 must be with an accompanying adult on the same excursion, while guests age 13–17 may have an accompanying adult on the Dolphin Observer excursion (N22, page 257). Jewelry is not allowed in the water; complimentary lockers and wet suits (during the winter months) are provided. Food is available for purchase. Typical meeting time is 9:30 am.

 Nassau Forts and Junkanoo Discovery   [N30]

This is a cultural highlights tour of Nassau. This excursion starts with a 15-minute walk to the pick-up point, then you’ll board an air-conditioned van for a ride to Fort Fincastle with its gorgeous views. You’ll also visit the Queen’s Staircase, a 65-step, 100-foot-high solid limestone staircase cut into the side of a hill. Your next stop is to a Junkanoo exhibit filled with costumes, photos, and music from this national cultural festival. Your final stop is Fort Charlotte, Nassau’s largest fort. Afterward, you can go right back to the ship or get dropped off in the straw market to shop. This excursion is wheelchair and stroller accessible, but both must be collapsible. Wear comfy walking shoes! Typical meeting time is 9:45 am.
