What you'll do

If you're tired of being around large crowds and want to get away on an intimate experience this one is for you.

First, we will meet you at the Poop Deck East Bay restaurant (the restaurant shares a parking lot with the marina). We will meet you in the parking lot and escort you to the boat. Let the marina staff know the boat's name is My Turn III if they ask.

Once we are all on the boat, it is smooth sailing from there. Sit back and relax while you listen to your local Bahamian captain tell you about the Bahamas. You will sail past beautiful Paradise Island looking at million dollar homes.

After about 45 minutes of sailing we will arrive at Rose Island (only accessible by boat). With its beautiful beach and pristine waters it is the perfect location to relax and unwind. Snorkeling gear is provided for free and you can snorkel as much as you want. We will stay at the island for about 2.5 hours and then will get back on the boat. Relax as you are served fruit punch and sit around talking for the approximate 45 minute ride back to Poop Deck East Bay restaurant.

The entire experience is expected to last 4 hours.

Other things to note
We will provide life jackets, drinking water, and fruit punch. No sailing experience needed. You just come relax and take in the beautiful water, scenery, and enjoy your time on an intimate sailboat experience.

I started sailing on a tiny sailboat when I was only 14. I am passionate about sailing and want to share why I love sailing with others. I fell in love with Nassau when I visited on a cruise ship. The crystal clear waters, the friendly people make it a place unrivaled in the world. Combining my love for Nassau and my love for sailing couldn't get much better.

Wellington and Marty were exceptional hosts. They provided some great historical information on Bahamas as well as created a wonderful atmosphere on the boat. We met some great travelers as well who made the day an absolute joy. This experience is sure not to disappoint! The smaller group atmosphere along with the best hosts provided for a perfect fun filled day.

This was a great experience. Captain Wellington and Marty are super friendly and a pleasure to sail with. We got lots of stories on the way to the island. Lots of info about the Bahamas. The snorkeling was beautiful. Great reef, lots of fish of all kinds and sting rays. I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a great Bahamas snorkeling experience.

I had so much fun with my two friends on the trip. The sailing was really fun and smooth and you get refreshed by the water if you sit in the front! We felt very welcome and had a great time learning about different celebrities houses on the water and had an AMAZING time on rose island with the crystal clear water and opportunities to snorkel and even jetski! I would recommend this to everyone who goes to Nassau.

The best snorkeling trip ever!! Bcoz of COVID, he only took my family on his boat. Captain Willi was amazing and sure friendly. His boat was clean and spacious. Rose island was secluded and the reef was amazing. We saw 2 string rays & lots of unique fishes. We also saw an 18 foot bull shark where we boarded the boat. We loved our day so much!!
