When visiting the Bahamas, it’s an absolute sin not to spend time in the water.
Whether you’re enjoying an afternoon of deep sea fishing or exploring the gorgeous underwater landscape in your SCUBA gear, it’s a unique experience that doesn’t come around every day. It’s like something right off of a post card.
This package starts with a 2-hour primer on all the basics of SCUBA equipment and the physics of the dive. The training is conveniently done poolside right at the house.
After the training is complete, you will then be treated to a SCUBA dive that explores the gorgeous reef right off the beach in back of the house. This package is available for a maximum of 6 people 12 years of age and up. Once you’ve undergone the training part of this package, you can then enjoy more SCUBA packages later in the week without the need to go through the training exercises again.
The Bahamas is a prime spot when it comes to deep sea fishing. There are numerous fishing tournaments held in the Bahamas every year.
There’s definitely a reason for that…the fishing here is remarkable! There are two main fishing packages available – full day and half day. You will be treated to a fishing excursion on a modern fishing boat with all the equipment you’ll need. Rods, reels, bait, ice and a captain and mate are all provided for you on this trip. For full day excursions, lunch will be arranged for you (perhaps fresh conch salad?). There’s also loads of cooler space just in case you’d like to bring your own refreshments.
For those who just can’t decide, this package is for you. Without a doubt, this is the ideal package to fully experience the Bahamian waters.
In this package, you get to spend a half-day fishing and the other half SCUBA diving and exploring the ocean.
Recently we’ve teamed up with Al Curry, the owner of Ocean Fox Cotton Bay and we’re now offering a variety of SCUBA and fishing activities to our visitors. Most of Al’s packages can be customized for your needs. To get more information or to arrange a fishing or diving excursion, please visit:
With that in mind, there are activities geared for kids of all ages. There are packages built from the ground up with kids in mind to make sure they thoroughly enjoy themselves.
In this package kids learn the basics of snorkeling. They start out with a one hour lesson in the pool at the front of the house. Flipper, will walk the kids through the proper use of snorkeling equipment as well as the safety precautions…
After the initial hour of training, Flipper then takes the kids out to the back of the house for a 1-2 hour snorkeling adventure in the shallow water. This package is limited to 1-4 kids at a time. Also, once the initial training phase has been done, kids can go out again with Flipper later during you stay without needing to go through the training again. The price for this package is $150.

When visiting Eleuthera, you absolutely must plan on spending some time in the water. One of the biggest attractions that is not publicized enough is the majestic beauty of the underwater seascape.
When visiting Eleuthera you absolutely must plan on spending some time in the water. One of the biggest attractions of our island is the majestic beauty of the underwater seascape. If you don’t get underwater, you’ve missed out on a truly spectacular Bahamian experience.
Sharon knows the underwater world of Eleuthera like the back of her hand and a better guide cannot be found. With over 25 years of freediving, fishing, and spearing experience on Eleuthera, she can customize each experience. Below we have provided some suggestions and/or general pricing information:
Great program for kids and adults who have never snorkeled before. Start out in our pool where Sharon fits equipment and teaches breathing techniques. The group then moves to the reefs right off of our beach taking rafts for the smaller kids to be able to rest or to another location if wind is not conducive out front.
Great program for adults who are comfortable snorkeling and want to take it to the next level. Sharon explains how to use a Hawaiian sling and teaches how to free dive, locate and spear lobsters and find conch.
Also available: Paddling with Turtle, Dune Buggy Snorkel Safari, Blue Hole and Cave Tour, Swim with the Pigs/ 4 Cay Epic Exuma Adventure, Fishing, Lighthouse Beach and Schooners Cay Boat Tours
My family and I took 2 separate tours with Eleuthera Adventure Tours. Sharon and Lewis were fantastic. When my son didn't want to snorkel anymore Lewis took him to the shore and stayed with him so the rest of the family could continue to enjoy the snorkeling. We went to the Blue Hole and saw spotted eagle rays - they were unbelievable to see. Sharon was very knowledgeable of the history and ecology of the island and and very eco-conscious. We saw bats on the cave tour which were so cool and my son loved them. Sharon and Lewis really went out of their way to plan the trip and make sure that everyone had a great time. I highly recommend them!
Sharon and Louis were incredibly knowledgeable and fun guides! It was my family's first time visiting Eleuthera, and our adventures with them far exceeded expectations. Sharon was incredibly flexible and communicative throughout the whole booking process, as well as through our stay on the island. She went above and beyond in every way imaginable - from making our plans fit with unforeseen changes in the wind patterns, to finding ways to include all ages and physical abilities of our large group, to showing us how to catch and clean lobster (we had a delicious dinner that night!), to photo-documenting our experiences. All the snorkeling gear we needed was provided, and after kayaking through a bay of turtles, we were lead through a mangrove system where we saw sea cucumbers, colorful plant life, and so many fish! Lewis brought us to a very cool cave where we saw bats and otherworldly tree-rock growth. We were provided with friendliness, generosity, cultural and historical tidbits, and an all around welcoming experience ensuring that I will book another trip with Eleuthera Adventure Tours if I ever make it back that way. I could go on and on, but I'll just say...what a treat! Hands down 5 stars. Eco-tourism at its best.
Sharon and her colleague Lewis recently guided our family over the course of 3 days on two separate snorkeling outings and a kayaking/turtle tour. Our group consisted of a wide range of abilities and ages (6 to 68). In addition, the wind conditions presented certain challenges to the original plans. Sharon was masterful at adapting to the group and circumstances, and as a result designed outings for us that were great successes. She and Lewis are both skilled guides, who are deeply knowledgeable about Eleuthera and its marine life. Sharon provides excellent equipment and will take you to places "off the beaten path." If you travel to Eleuthera and sign up for an excursion with Sharon, you won't be disappointed.
