We took the water taxi from the port at Nassau over to Paradise Island. Our tour guide was funny and made the short ride fun! He gave information about the resorts in the area and the homes on the island (who owned them/history). We enjoyed it!

This a must to take boat ride when you are off the port from a cruise ship. You will see so much beautiful scenery during the 15 mimute ride even including your own cruise ship from water level.

Very enjoyable round trip service from Pleasure Island to Downtown Nassau. This service runs every 30 minutes and crew work to inform passengers of the sights along the way. Much cheaper than a taxi ride ($8 round trip on the ferry). Also witnessed crew take exceptional care of some ladies in electric wheelchairs and needing assistance. They treated these folks... More

This is a fun way to get over to Paradise Island, and while on the way there they tell about some of the history that has taken place in Nassau. You get to see where some movies have been made, and I always enjoy looking for fish around the taxi at either dock.

We traveled over to Nassau from PI one day during our trip. It was a nice alternative to a cab. The water taxis seem to be privately owned so don't expect uniforms or fancy vessels. In fact, we saw one being worked on and the fellow was just hammering random scrap boards onto it. Each boat has a guy who... More

Hopped on the ferry in Nassau to return to Paradise Island. MC provided great entertainment & informative information on the houses located on route. Much better than a taxi ride.

The tour guide was very funny and entertaining, while riding over to atlantis he gives you a little history of what used to be in the area and he did it in a very fun and interesting way.

We had a great time taking the water Taxi over to Atlantis, our guide was awesome and full of info. He gave us cultural background and showed us some homes of the rich and famous. Atlantis is very expensive so make sure you take snacks and water with you if you plan on staying for a few hours. We were... More

The fair is cheep and you need to make sure you are not on a strict schedule, but it is worth the wait for the ride. Much nicer than taking a taxi across, and we got a bit of different information about the islands each time we went on the trip.
