The water taxi is an inexpensive way to get from one side of the island to the main beach area of the island. Limited pick up and drop off points but cheaper then a taxi.

Everything met our expectations and was fun! Friendly service everywhere and beautiful scenery. Only complaint is that the fun music on the water taxis are a little too loud for a 15-20 minutes ride, !

Best way to get from the cruise ship to Atlantis. A lot of fun to ride and there was even a guide that gave history of the island during the trip!

It's a great way to get from Paradis Island to Nasdau for only $4, but don't be in a hurry the leave every 30 minutes, but that's Bahamian time. Usually every 45 mnutes.
