    Exuma Blues

    Dodging Liquid Sunshine

    When you want to get away from the winter blues, there’s no better place to rediscover the warmth of blue hues then in the Exuma Cays.

    On our excursion days, we sometimes have to dodge weather, one of the downsides of our tropical winters. Having a high-performance powerboat with the latest technology makes this a breeze.  We also have light foul weather gear, just in case (in addition to our full repertoire of safety gear).

    We invite you to explore the Exumas with us, to swim with the pigs, to feed iguanas, and to experience what the Family Islands are all about.  We’ll make sure your trip is comfortable and enjoyable!

    One of our first mates, Craig, took these amazing photos on a recent trip.  The first shows the dark run to the Big Majors (aka Pig Beach), the latter the opposing weather on the gorgeous Allens Cay.

    I met some of the guests from this dreary day as they were leaving the marina – and although there was intermittent rain they had an amazing day. The sun came out at all of the various spots and allowed them to enjoy what the Bahamas has to offer. I am always in awe as to the effect the Exumas have on our guests, and we at Harbour Safaris can’t wait to share it with the you and the rest of the world.

    Don’t forget the ‘u’ in harbour – after all, we can’t do it without you!

    Cruise Ship Excursions

    We often get asked if cruise ship visitors can partake in our Nassau Harbour Tour – the answer is of course YES!  Our tours last a little over an hour, so you’re able to come out with us and still have time to shop and visit Nassau.  We’ll even let you know a few secret spots that we like and the best place to have lunch or dinner!

    Don’t let the cruiseships talk you out of it though!  We are fully insured (Massy United Insurance Company Limited, rated A- by AM Best) and our crew is fully certified with Captains licenses and STCW maritime training.  We consistently perform safety drills and our boats are modern and professionally maintained as well as inspected yearly by the Bahamas Port Department.

    We pick up directly in front of the cruise ship port, at the Prince George Wharf – a mere few minutes walk from your boat.  We’ll also let you off here, so you’ll still be in the heart of downtown Nassau!

    If you have more time in Nassau, and you’d like a bit more adventure – we run longer tours to the Exumas and Spanish Wells & Harbour Island, sometimes lunch & snorkle days at Rose Island, and a few other excursions, such as the world-famous swimming pigs! Check our tour schedule for days and times, or get in touch with us if you have a custom request!

    There are many different cruise lines and ships coming to Nassau in the next few months; here is an estimated schedule of arrivals from CruiseTT.com.

    We look forward to seeing you in the end of 2015 or in 2016!
