Although the Bahamas are of course best known for their pristine beaches and crystal clear waters, there is far more to do in Nassau then simply lounge on the white sandy beaches – if you are looking for a more adventurous activity during your holiday, then read on to find out more about kayaking in the Nassau region.
Nassau is the capital city of the island Commonwealth of the Bahamas. It is situated a mere 180 miles off the coast of Miami, Florida, making it an easily accessible island paradise – a great choice for your next vacation!
Kayaking provides one of the best ways to experience the natural beauty of the Bahamas. You can slide your paddle through the crystal clear, blue waters of the Caribbean and explore the wide open ocean.
Bahamas Adventure Glass Bottom Kayaking
Bahamas Adventure Glass Bottom Kayaking provide a unique way to view the sea life in the waters around Nassau – in a glass bottomed kayak! Your trip will start with a ride on the MV Blue Manta, a catamaran that will transport you from Nassau harbor to the start of your kayak journey. While you are en route to the kayaking start, you will experience traditional Bahamian music and a detailed history of Nassau and the Bahamas. There will also be complementary drinks and snacks available on the boat. Once you have reached the kayak site, you will have an hour to kayak through the calm blue waters in your glass bottomed kayak.
The waters of the Caribbean are widely known to be some of the clearest in the world, and you can often see more than 200 feet beneath the surface. In your perfectly transparent kayak, you will be able to view tropical fish and beautiful coral reefs teeming with marine life. The coral reefs are immensely colorful and are home to sea creatures such as manta rays, angelfish and shellfish. You may even see a turtle or some lobsters scuttling over the ocean floor. The glass bottom kayaking provides an unforgettable way to see the underwater world of the Caribbean, while enjoying some exercise as you kayak.
The glass bottom kayak tour costs $77 per adult and $40 per child, and tours leave from Nassau harbor daily at 8.30am and 11.30 am. The entire kayaking tour including transport to and from the kayak site takes 2.5 hours.
Bahamas outdoors also offers kayaking adventures that are a little more off the beaten track. You can choose either a half day or a full day tour, with all equipment provided. You will also receive fresh fruit, snacks, drinks and a picnic lunch with the kayaking tour.
