Beautiful Scenic Boat Ride

We know that not all of our guests are big boaters and a few may worry about the size of the vessels or the length of the trip. Relax! Our catamarans are large, double-decker vessels that can each carry well over 100 passengers. Each boat has a captain and two mates, is equipped with life vests and is fully licensed and inspected. The ride is approximately 20-minutes and you never lose sight of land or venture far out to sea. Sit back, relax and enjoy as we cruise through Nassau's harbour, past Paradise Island and over to Blue Lagoon Island. The boat ride is very picturesque and worth the trip!

Sea Lion vs. Seal

What’s The Difference Between Seals & Sea Lions?

SEA LIONS:
  • Earflaps
  • Long hairless foreflippers
  • Hindflippers rotate underneath to allow them to walk on land
  • Swim underwater using foreflippers like wings of a bird
  • Long smooth whiskers or vibrissae

SEALS:
  • Earholes
  • Short, hairy foreflippers & long claws
  • Move on land by wiggling on belly & keep hindflippers straight out
  • Swim by steering with foreflippers and powering with hindflipers
  • Whiskers are crimped or beaded
