We have 5 1/2 hours - first of all, is it worth doing any excursions? If so, What? And Atlantis is out - I am not paying $150 for 3 hours of fun LOL.
Depending on what hours of the day you are in Nassau... you can go into the aquarium at the Atlantis for FREE.. in the evening. After the water parks close... they open the aquarium at night for no charge.. cus it is a package price in the daytime. All you have to pay for is the taxi over and back. $12 each way.
unfortunately, we are there early at 8 and leave by 2, so that will not work for us. That would have been fun though!
The pirate museum is only a couple of blocks away...it is a great museum .. interactive fun for a couple of hours and there is a ton of shopping on the way as well... the newly constructed straw market with plenty of souveniers for all ages. I have attached a link to the museum. Christ Church Cathedral is across the street if you are interested in stained-glass windows and murals. This is also free but you can always make a donation.I have added a link for that as well.
Hope this is helpfull.
OOO love that idea - thanks much!!!
another great idea... you can really find free entertaining things to see and do everywhere...
When in Nassau, I stay on the ship! Unless you go to Atlantis, I don't really like anything...Just sayin'...
To each their own.. I would suggest for first time visitors to get off the ship and decide for themselves...if they decide they are uncomfortable its simple to just head back to the ship. Atlantis is wonderful but quite expensive and out of budget of many travelers.
I like the Atlantis Resort , you can take a water taxi there or if you don`t have much time take a Taxi. It is a great place to check out on Paradise Island
In Nassau you can walk to the straw market , they have some good deals , if you are in to shopping
