What You Can Expect

Freeport Shore Excursion: Round-Trip Beach Transfer to Paradise Cove

Spend time at Paradise Cove while in port!

When your ship docks, meet your driver and board the Beach Hopper coach and begin the 12-mile (20-km) drive across the island to Paradise Cove.

Paradise Cove is a secluded beach on the southwest coast of Grand Bahama, far off-the-beaten-path from the principal tourist areas on the island. Relax on this pristine beach without the crowds or vendors usually found at more popular beaches. You’re free to spend your time on the beach however you would like – soak up the sun or take a dip in the calm, blue waters. Get out on the water and rent a kayak or paddleboard or try your hand at snorkeling and rent equipment to venture out and explore Deadman’s Reef, a premier snorkeling spot with colorful corals, tropical fish and other marine life like sea turtles. (Rentals are at your own expense).

On shore there’s a beach bar and restaurant where you can purchase drinks and local fare like conch burgers and lobster salad. When your visit to Paradise Cove is over, board the coach for transport back to your cruise ship.

We thoroughly enjoyed our snorkling excursion at Paradise Cove. The transportation was half the cost that others charged for the same ride. We did have some initial concerns about the legitimacy of our ride as the driver had no official id to let us know that they were the designated driver.

Our driver Bryce was awesome and so informative! Beach was nice, we did not snorkel but they had snorkel equipment to rent. We had a stingray a little one come right up near the shore where we were.Not crowded which was great.

We've been on close to 10 trips to Freeport and this was by-far our favorite excursion. The man who picked us up in Freeport to take us to Paradise Cove was very nice. He did try to take us to a neighboring beach, but we knew from reading past reviews to stay with the original plan. We are glad we did. The place is beautiful and very well kept. There were lots of options for things to do, including kayaking and snorkeling. The weather was a little chilly, so we opted to kayak first and had a blast. Then we snorkeled with our own equipment. and saw a sea turtled, a stingray, and all kinds of fish. The reef was very beautiful. Our driver got us back to our ship on time and it was a worry-free time of relaxing and fun. For the price, you can't find a better option in Freeport. We are so glad we were able to book this excursion and would definitely recommend it.

This was an amazing shore excursion! Our guide Fran picked my girlfriend and I up by the straw market in Freeport and gave us a choice on what beach we wanted to go to. After we decided, she drove us personally to the private beach about 15 minutes from the port. Once we arrived at the beach it was beautiful and closed off from the public. As my girlfriend and I enjoyed the beach and kayaked, Fran stayed the whole time with us, watched our valuables and even took many pictures for us. Once the trip was over after about 4 hours she drove us back to the port. I would do this again in a heartbeat, Fran was so funny and nice and made us feel welcome.

Our ride and tour was awesome! The beach was peaceful and not crowded. Also, be mindful that there is an additional fee to enter Paradise Cove

This was an excellent excursion. We ended up going to Taino Beach instead of Paradise Cove. The beach was not crowded - we had to ourselves for at least 2 hours. There was a 3 admission to the beach Paradise Cove is 11. Kayaks and paddle boards were free and available to use. We also took advantage of the Wave runner - 60 for 30 minutes. Food and drinks were also available. Our ship was late arriving and I was sure we missed our excursion, however, Brice was waiting to pick us up. Brice was very friendly and prompt in getting us to and from the beach. We had a great time and highly recommend this excursion.
