There are a plethora of Nassau Bahamas shore excursions to keep you busy on your island vacation.
Top 10 Best Excursions in Nassau Bahamas
Without further ado, here are our picks for best excursions in Nassau Bahamas:
1.Get a bird’s eye view of the Exuma Cays
If traveling to the Exumas on Nassau port excursions, the time you save by flying is just a bonus. The real fun is what astronauts call the most beautiful view from above; the Bahamas’ Out Islands from above.
As you fly to the Exuma Cays, you can enjoy the same views as the astronauts from your window and on board a luxury private plane. Live a life outside your own and soak it in while you are on holiday!
2. Go Underwater Plane Wreck Spotting in the Exumas
With an interesting drug running history across the Bahamas Islands from the 1970’s, there are many underwater plane wrecks to discover. The Bahamas shallow and clear waters make it the perfect place to go finding these amazing underwater plane wrecks.
3. Play with the turtles at Farmer’s Cay
Farmer’s Cay is another of the Nassau Bahamas cruise excursions not to be missed. Have you ever dreamed of diving with sea turtles and seeing them so elegantly glide through the ocean? Farmer’s Cay gives you one of the best chances to see this scene in the world.
4. Spot the Rock Iguanas
Northern rock iguanas are not as densely populated anywhere else in the world as in the Bahamas. Though, today there are less than 5,000 of them on the planet, making it an endangered species.
One of the most underrated Nassau Bahamas shore excursions is a trip to spot these rare reptiles. Located only on the islands of Andros, Exuma, and most predominantly Bitter Guana Cay, you have to take the chance to see this dying breed before it is too late.
5. Get an adrenaline rush at Thunderball Grotto
The James Bond Thunderball Grotto at Staniel Cay is one of the most impressive attractions and top Nassau Bahamas shore excursions.
Also, being close to several other popular destinations in the Bahamas, you can turn it into a full day tour of the Exumas around several Nassau Bahamas shore excursions.
6. Go horseback riding on the beach
Ride your way through the Out Islands on horseback across white sandy beach or wading through crystal clear turquoise waters. What is more romantic than watching as the sun goes down and the sky shines bright and burning colors? There are plenty of opportunities for horseback riding in the Out Islands or closer to Nassau such as Paradise Islands.
7. Take the #1 Swimming with Pigs Tour
When talking about the top Exuma excursions from Nassau, how could we not mention the number one attraction in the entire country? Nassau swimming pigs are by far and away the most popular thing to do in the Bahamas. You must have seen these swimming pigs before at sea at Instagram. Now, you can see them live and in action at Big Major Cay.
It is only a thirty minute trip to Pig Island from Nassau. You can book a Pig Beach excursion from Nassau virtually anywhere near the port.
8. Take a buggy tour around the island
Beach relaxation and underwater adventures are not the only Nassau Bahamas cruise excursions on offer. Stroll through the wild side of the Bahamas – where the terrain is rough, the dirt is dry, and the wildlife is abundant. See the other side of the Bahamas on Paradise Island.
You’ll see a variety of wildlife like you’ve never seen before, and that’s a guarantee!
9. Go diving with reef sharks
If you are looking for nose-to-nose interaction with a reef or nurse shark, then look no further. For all the adrenaline lovers, your Nassau Bahamas shore excursions will surely be topped off by the Compass Cay sharks, where wild nature and the sea find pure beauty and the sharks steal the show. The sharks are one of the top Exuma excursions from Nassau.
