Sharks, Shipwrecks, and Snorkeling Excursion

per adult Price is $100

Delve into the underwater world of the Bahamas, exploring marine movie sets, eerie sunken wrecks, and vibrant coral reefs teeming with tropical sea life on this guided snorkeling excursion.

After being picked up from your hotel, head to the docks – you may recognize this secluded cove as the set of the movie Flipper – and step aboard the Zambezi, a custom-built vessel designed specifically for snorkeling. Lounge on the upper sun deck as you skim across the waves to a beautiful shallow reef. Get acquainted with your snorkeling gear then slide into the water off the back of the boat. Swim leisurely over gently waving sea fans, flitting schools of colorful fish, and elaborate coral formations as you admire this serene marine realm.

Climb back on the boat and make your way out to your second destination. Depending on visibility and conditions, your captain will opt for either another shallow reef or a sunken wreck—the sandy seabed off the Bahamian coast is dotted with the ghostly skeletons of ships and airplanes. Swim up close to the wreckage of a small aircraft to spy timid moray eels and bright fish poking out of windows and crevices in the wreckage.

Finally, cruise out to your third and most daring destination to experience the thrill of snorkeling with Caribbean reef sharks. Observe these magnificent predators of the deep from the safety of the surface as they swarm around a bait box lowered down below you before your return trip to shore.

We really enjoyed this three spot snorkel tour. The last spot was us snorkeling on top of the water with sharks swimming below. Really cool! The excursion was well organized and the staff were friendly and kept a watchful eye on us.

The water was very choppy and pretty chilly. They couldn’t help that though. The name of the excursion was Snorkeling, Shipwreck and Shark Dive. We didn’t get to do the shark dive because of the choppy water. There was no shipwreck and it wasn’t even mentioned. The two ladies we dealt with in the gift/reservation store were not very friendly AT ALL and neither was the bus driver that picked us up at our hotel. And one of my favorite things is buying the fish food to feed the fish while you are snorkeling and they were out. I guess you have to go to the morning snorkel for that.
