When we landed on our cruise in Nassau, the place to go is Atlantis resort. While the easy sensible thing is to grab a taxi to get to the resort. Do yourself a favor and take the water taxi. It a beautiful slow ride, with...More

It’s $4 US and they run every half hour. They give you a brief history of the area on your 10 minute trip. Easy way to get to the Island

We took the water taxi to Paradise Island twice during our visit. It is a short trip and is much cheaper than taking a taxi. Boats leave at regular intervals and a tour guide who works for tips, will tell you a few interesting facts...More
