About This Nassau Tour
The pink-hued government and historic buildings of Rawson and Parliament Square will glide by your view in a rosy nod to colonial Nassau. Military buffs (you know who you are!) can get hands-on at two 18th-century defensive installations – uncover dark dungeons and cryptic underground passageways at Fort Charlotte and climb the limestone landmark that is the Queen's Staircase at Fort Fincastle.
Have a sudden craving for seafood and rum? That's natural. You are on a tropical island, after all. This narrated tour will take you to an authentic Bahamian fish fry on Arawak Cay. Meander your way through the vendors and follow your taste buds to a fresh-caught meal. You'll also savor the award-winning "Spirit of The Bahamas" (a true buccaneer favorite) with a signature rum drink of the day tasting during your fully-guided tour at the always-vibrant John Watling's Distillery.
Feel like Lady Luck is on your side? You may want to hit the gaming floor during the stop at Atlantis Hotel Resort & Casino. If you feel like the house advantage is too much to take on, you can get snap-happy and blow up your friends' feeds with selfies taken around this stunning, world-class property.
And let the less savvy tourists fight for elbow room at the beaches on everyone's Bahamian radar. You're going off the grid and straight onto sun-drenched Caves Beach. This crescent-shaped stretch of soft white sand is bursting with simple charm and natural beauty. You already hit the high-energy city sites, now it's time to unwind on the beach.
Many notorious pirates stalked the waters off the Bahamas. Just don't lump John Watling in with that wicked bunch. Known as the "pious pirate," Watling faithfully observed the Sabbath and frowned upon gambling. Pious, maybe, but pompous as well. After all, he did rename San Salvador after himself. He had the last laugh, though. This spiritual swashbuckler's name appears on every bottle of John Watling's rum, widely called the "Spirit of The Bahamas."
