Inland Tours

 

Bens Cave

 

If exploring a tropical paradise is for you, then this is your island. Most tourists that visit Grand Bahama never realize that the natural attractions are the island’s finest resource. Visit a secluded beach or check out the amazing Lucayan National Park - home to Ben's Cave, the second longest underwater surveyed cave system in the world. Gold Rock Creek, located just across the street, is home to all five ecosystems of Grand Bahama Island. And, The Garden of The Groves offers a relaxing tour of its twelve acres of indigenous flora and fauna. Whatever your choice, you are guaranteed to have a blast!

 

& Sea

Check out the Starfish

 

Water activities are featured on this tropical island and should be a part of everyone’s vacation. The Island's reputation as a diver's paradise comes from the intricate coral gardens and distinctive sapphire portals in the reefs that you can descend. Or, snorkel the shallow reefs and view the brightly colored fish, or take a ferry out to the lagoon and swim with the dolphins. This area is also considered one of the world's premier sport fishing destinations. Strap yourself in and get ready to hook onto a blue and yellow-fin tuna, bonefish, marlin, sailfish, or barracuda just to name a few!


Glass Bottom Boat

 

Guests will enjoy magnificent views and experience exciting discoveries while cruising around the many vivid coral reefs that encircle the island. View exotic landmarks such as Cooper’s Medieval Castle while sailing onboard the “Ocean Wonder,” on a sixty foot double-deck glass bottom boat. See intensely colored sea life, coral formations, and many other delightful wonders - such as Brit’s Wreck submerged near Treasure Reef.

 

Swim with the Dolphins

 

Dolphin Lagoon

 

A short ferry ride will take some fortunate guests to The Dolphin Experience Lagoon, where small groups of swimmers will take turns swimming with the dolphins! Guests will be given an opportunity to give the dolphins hand signals, and the skilled dolphins will show off their talents. The Dolphin staff will explain facts about these brilliant creatures, to give you an understanding of these amazing creatures. Make sure to bring a good camera for this unique experience, and take home some memories!
