I'm really glad I made the choice of taking this excursion over all the others. The entire staff at Sandy Toes were professional, informative, and fun! I enjoyed the snorkeling, the beautiful beaches, and the food was also amazing. Great choice, overall Great experience!
Great trip for the whole family! Beautiful island and crystal clear water! Owners are great and very helpful too!!
Me, my wife, and 2 kids (10 and 12) loved Rose Island. The staff was AWESOME, the beach was AMAZING and the pigs were a lot of fun. The island is very private and very well kept. The snorkeling is pretty good also. We loved the entire experience.
The island is stunning. I had an amazing time there. The weather was amazing and the food was very tasty.
Amazing staff and crew, easy check in and boat ride fun.
Greeted on dock by the pigs, well staffed on Rose island, pigs friendly and trained.
Beach amazing.... snorkeling ok.
Can snorkel right off beach.
My family enjoyed the day trip visit to Rose Island. We had perfect weather and snorkeling was calm and kids easily able to participate. The beach bar was very good and the lunch was very well done with beautiful views from the deck.
Well organized day trip. Friendly and knowledgeable crew. Exactly as advertised. Beach and food excellent. Please tip the crew, they do an amazing job and I saw a very few people show their appreciation.
This was our favorite experience in the Bahamas. Peaceful and truly felt we were on a deserted island. Don’t go for the swimming pigs only. There were 2. Peace and quiet, napped in a hammock and beautiful beach and turquoise water. Bar was reasonable. Snorkeling was included and the food was amazing. Views were awesome. Would do again!
My husband and I were in the Bahamas for a half business and half personal vacation/trip. We booked this excursion after quite a bit of research and I am so glad we did! The staff was wonderful, the buffet lunch was good and plentiful and the island, well, let's just say I stood in one spot in the water for quite a bit of time and just "looked" at the water and horizon, absolutely gorgeous water! There is a bar a few steps above the beach that serves "local" drinks as well as other popular choices along with a SPECTACULAR VIEW! I am a Travel Agent and will definitely recommend this excursion to my clients!
Awesome Captain Steve also bartender has heavy pour. Only bad no white chicken or fish. Private beach 5*****
