Paradise Cove Day Pass Or Snorkel Only with Transport from Freeport
While you’re in Freeport, visit secluded Paradise Cove with this convenient day pass with round-trip transport. Spend the day however you wish at this laid-back, family-friendly, white-sand beach in western Grand Bahama. Go snorkeling just off the shore on Deadman’s Reef, or soak up the sunshine without dealing with typical crowds and beach vendors. Food and drinks are included from the beach bar.
After pickup from Freeport hotels or the cruise port, head to Paradise Cove, a 20-minute drive west. Pass through the native settlement of Eight Mile Rock, and listen to commentary from your driver about Bahamian history and local landmarks.
When you arrive at Paradise Cove, head to the Red Bar to rent a locker or towel, if needed (own expense), or grab a cold tropical drink. Then hit the sand to spend your time however you wish. Relax on a beach chair and enjoy the vendor-free atmosphere, or put on your provided snorkeling gear and explore Deadman’s Reef, right off the beach. After listening to a quick briefing about preservation of the reef, you are free to snorkel for as long as you like; if you’re a first-timer, an instructor is on hand to give a short lesson.
Lunch is provided at the Red Bar for those who select the day pass option; sample items include hot dogs, chicken, veggie burgers and fish burgers. Then work off your lunch with activities like volleyball, stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking.
When it’s time to leave, return to Freeport the way you came.

Average 5.00 out of 5 stars based on 24 verified reviews from Cool Destinations and TripAdvisor.
Very impressive underwater world. A lot of turtles and exotic fishes. Personnel is friendly and responsive to your request. The facility has all necessary services and amenities.
Very Nice Experience!
This truly is Paradise Cove. I almost stayed in bed this day and skipped out but I am forever grateful that I got up. Everything about this was perfect. The safety presentation was informative and also made me comfortable to be out exploring. I have never had a better experience in my life and can say that this has lit a spark in me for snorkeling. We also went to Nassau and hands down I wish we would have went two days to Freeport just so I could visit Paradise Cove again.
The driver was very organized and made sure everyone was accounted for to and from Paradise Cove.
We followed the Safety Guide's recommendations on where to snorkel and saw a TON. More than 6 sea turtles grouped together, barracudas, parrotfish, stingray, grouper, sea urchin, a nurse shark, and almost any other fish you will find when searching Bahama's fish.
The water was chilly but thankfully they had VERY cheap wetsuits for rent. Everyone who worked there seemed like they genuinely cared about the Cove and it's preservation.
I didn't have any of the food, but the blended drinks are very cheap and very generous!
The price, the view and the people who run this are worth paying ever penny for. Thank you all for the experience, hopefully one day I'll be back to rent one of the Villa's
My family and I had such an amazing time with this Paradise Cove Day Pass. The bus driver was very nice. We had a great time snorkeling and swimming!
This excursion was awesome! The staff was great. The water was beautiful and the snorkeling was amazing. We saw turtles, sting rays, eels, and an array of fish and coral. We will definitely do this excursion in the future!
The people were very nice and beach was great!
One of the best places to snorkel right off the beach. We seen several sea turtles while we were snorkeling.
We are looking forward to another trip to Paradise Cove.
Nice to be off beaten path. Nice staff. Laid back.
Cool Destinations tours was fantastic! Tour guides were there at the port waiting for us. We had to wait for other passengers which was a bummer because we were ready to go and start our adventure but what can you do? Cool Destinations waited until all were accounted for, which I appreciated, even though we had to wait! Our driver was very personable and friendly! He gave us a well informed tour of the island as we traveled and was a safe driver. The bus was a little too tightly packed for me but still safe and cool and clean. He stayed there with us at Paradise Cove and gave us the option of departure times to return to ship. Paradise Cove is a wonderful, clean, peaceful beach. The owners were super friendly and though there were lots of rules about the coral and ocean life, it was an awesome experience. Great for all ages too! We saw many fish in the little pots and a beautiful sand stingray! Snorkeling is great for beginners and experts alike as there are levels depending on the distance and swimming endurance. We were returned to the ship with plenty of time to visit the shops and then make fun of from our balcony those that almost missed the boat!! Highly recommended!! Thanks for making our Freeport experience Great!
The reef was beautiful and our driver, Dwight, was awesome! We saw sea turtles, Stingrays, huge Burmuda Chubs, parrot fish and many, many other beautiful tropical fish! We were picked up right on time at the ship and we left the cove at the designated time. I strongly suggest bug spray though!
Wonderful beach area. It was windy while there so snorkeling was difficult. However, staff was excellent and did their best to make sure we had a good time and saw some fish and coral, despite the rough waters. Highly recommend. Conch fritters were amazing best I have had in the Bahamas.
