What to Expect

All of our tours start at Grum Ma’s House Cultural Center, which we founded to preserve and share the fascinating details of our Bahamian heritage. If you’re a cruise passenger then we will meet you at the bandstand at the Freeport Harbour before being transported to each of the tour stops. Along the way, we will make stops at Lucayan National Park, checking out the open caverns with pristine, clear water, native flora and fauna, and of course, miles of sandy beaches. We will also see High Rock, one of the highest points on the island with its own private lighthouse and another stunning beach. If you’re lucky enough to be visiting during Easter, Pelican Point is home to the Coconut Festival.

Beyond that, we will journey to McClean’s Town, one of the last settlements on the eastern end of Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, where we will enjoy some Bahamian cuisine and drinks. In October, this settlement also hosts the famous Conch Cracking Contest, a Bahamian classic! Via boat, we will cruise to Sweeting’s Cay, the small island where Turtle Pond is located. You can swim with turtles in their natural environment.

This Bahamas tour is the perfect way to explore the hidden locations that the locals love and that the tourists don’t know about. Join us for the day to explore the island’s beautiful nature and learn about the culture and history along the way.
