The water taxi that makes the short trip across the harbor between Nassau and Paradise Island is an affordable way to see both islands if you don't have a car to cross the bridge. The boarding docks are convenient - within easy walking distance - to downtown Nassau and its cruise ship docks and also to the resorts and shops of Paradise Island. Cost for passage is $4 each one way. Don't expect a luxury ride, but it's comfortable enough for the 20-minute crossing. Along the way, a guide narrates the sights, pointing out famous homes that belong or did belong to Nicholas Cage, Mick Jagger and Denzel Washington. Boats run every half-hour from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
- Daily 6am-9pm
- Tours and Excursions: "Avoid the boat ride to Paradise Island when a cruise ship has arrived; it gets packed tight."
- Best for Tours and Excursions Because: You don't need a tour or taxi to get a glimpse of the island on the other side of the harbor.
