There is a multitude of Atlantis Bahamas excursions to keep any and all Bahamas itineraries packed. Imagine a horseback ride on a beach of Paradise Island Bahamas to the view of a fiery sunset, set ablaze across the horizon with the awe-inspiring Atlantis Bahamas Resorts towering in the background. Picture yourself swimming eye-to-eye with sea turtles or nose-to-nose with reef sharks! All is possible through Atlantis excursions.
The Bahamas is an archipelago nation consisting of 700+ white sand, palm tree covered islands in the middle of a turquoise-colored sea. With temperatures rarely dropping below sixty degrees year-round, it makes the perfect island getaway destination.
Fortunately, Bahamas Air Tours provides getaway day trips from Florida and Nassau year-round so that any time is a convenient time to get away. Aboard our nine-seater twin-engined private plane, you will be greeted with the best views known to man (and that’s according to actual astronauts who have seen the Bahamas from a bird’s eye view.)
The one thing that island hopping Bahamas will revive in you is the romanticism of flight. These days, in the never-slow-down corporate world of flying from destination to destination, the majesty of flight has been forgotten. With Bahamas Air Tours you will find the thrill and unparalleled beauty of flight capture every emotion in you as you gaze down on one of the globe’s most stunning scenes.
Popular Atlantis Bahamas excursions and activities
1. Day trips to the swimming pigs Nassau
Take one of our Swimming pigs tours! The Bahamas Swimming pigs are perhaps the most well-known Bahamas attraction heard about worldwide. Surely, you have seen these cute little pigs in the ocean on Instagram before.
The original pigs in the Bahamas are found on Big Major Cay (Pig Island) on Pig Beach. Very few tours will take you to the original spot of the swimming pigs which means they are bringing you to a location where somebody has brought the pigs to an unknown habitat for tourism profit.
To ensure you are taken to the original location, Bahamas Air Tours will fly you to the Staniel Cay airstrip where we will take a short ten-minute boat across the way to Pig Beach. Once there, you will have ample time to play with the Exuma pigs and relax in the sun.
If coming by ferry or speedboat, your time with the pigs will be limited as usually the route via the sea takes over three times longer than the air route.
You can book your day trip from Nassau to Swimming Pigs Bahamas through Bahamas Air Tours today!
2. Diving with sharks
If coming nose-to-nose with a reef or nursing shark is not the rush you are looking for, I don’t know what else possibly is! For all of those adrenaline junkies, your Atlantis Bahamas excursions will be focused on exploring the natural environments of the Bahamas islands where untamed land and sea meet pure beauty. Discover this incredible experience at Compass Cay on our Staniel Cay Day Trip.
3. Buggy tours
Relaxing at the beach and underwater adventures are not the only Atlantis Bahamas excursions on offer. Take a ride on the wild side of the Bahamas — inland where the terrain is rough, things get dirty, and the wildlife is abundant. See the other side of Paradise Island Bahamas.
You will see a variety of wildlife unlike that of any you have seen before, and that is a guarantee!
4. Horseback riding Bahamas on an Exuma day trips
Horseback riding in the Bahamas on a white sand beach or wading in turquoise clear waters as the sun ducks below the horizon and the sky lights with bright, fiery colors; what could be more romantic than that moment? Although not a part of the Atlantis Bahamas excursions, it is not hard to find an agency selling the tour.
5. See amazing Exuma Sandbars at Pipe Cay
Experiencing the Exuma Sandbars at Pipe Cay would be another day trip from Nassau experience that you must take advantage of. It is not only Pipe Cay, but many sandbars all over the Exumas.
There’s a reason the Exuma Cays of the Bahamas are known as one of the most beautiful areas of the world and it is because of its plentiful picture-perfect scenes around the entire archipelago.
The activities a part of Atlantis Bahamas excursions are only a fraction of what’s on offer in the Bahamas. You would be missing out not to give it all time in your busy vacation itinerary.
6. Explore Thunderball Grotto
Thunderball Grotto is one of the most awe-inspiring attractions in the Bahamas. While it is located just west of Staniel Cay, means you will have to take a day trip from Nassau to Exumas to see it. However, it is worth the time commitment.
In addition, as it is within proximity of several other popular Bahamas destinations, you could turn it into a full day of Bahamas touring.
With Bahamas Air Tours, we will let you customize your full tour itinerary and we will get you there quicker and allow you to go further than any other touring company. Aboard our Bahamas charter, we will get you there in style, too.
7. Nassau to Staniel Cay Day Tour
As mentioned above, a day tour to Staniel Cay could mean many possibilities. You could first visit Thunderball Grotto or the Bahamas swimming pigs. Afterward, you could enjoy a drink at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club or do another excursion such as a buggy ride around Staniel Cay.
With Bahamas Air Tours, you could choose to tour any of the nearby Exuma sandbars, too! The entire day is entirely up to you.
8. Bahamas Rock Iguana spotting
Bahamas rock iguanas are nowhere near as populous as they used to be in the Bahamas. Now, there are less than 5,000 on the entire planet which makes them a vulnerable species. Mostly found on the Andros and Exuma Islands, you will most likely have to take a day tour from Nassau in order to see these graceful creatures.
It is still possible to see the reptiles out in the wild, but you must know where to look with guidance from an experienced tour expert.
9. See the Turtles at Farmer’s Cay
Farmer’s Cay is another day trip you’d have to take outside of Nassau with Atlantis excursions. Ever dreamt of snorkeling with sea turtles and watching their flawless motions as they glide through the water?
You will never get a better chance to swim side by side such gracefully moving animals than in the water at Farmer’s Cay. Take a day trip with Bahamas Air Tours to make sure you are making most of your day trip. We can take you to all of the excursions on this list unlike the rest of the tour companies who waste most of your day out at sea getting from Point A to Point B.
10. Witness the Exuma Cays from the sky!
The time you save with Bahamas Air Tours is only a bonus. The real treat is what astronauts have actually called the most beautiful sight from above Earth. And that is the Exuma Cays in the Bahamas from above.
By taking a flight to Bahamas Exuma Islands, you will be able to see the same view as the astronauts from your very own large-viewing window seat and aboard a luxury private plane. Live a life outside your own, come on, you are on vacation!
Atlantis Bahamas excursions that will have you drooling!
Although we have accrued a pretty spectacular list of Atlantis Bahamas excursions, one must remember the Bahamas islands only get better the further you make it from the tourist areas.
As the World’s only Bahamas Day Trip by plane, we can fly our guests further into the Bahamas than all the boat operators who traditionally day trip to only Freeport or Bimini.
There is so much to do and see on our day trips; example activities include – swimming with the pigs, snorkeling coral reefs, swimming with turtles, feeding sharks and stingrays, exploring sandbars, enjoying time on the beaches — the list goes on and on. The possibilities are endless.
Another huge benefit for Florida vacationers is flying from your nearest Southern Florida airport. Since Bahamas Air Tours does not exclusively travel to international airports, this means you can even be picked up from any nearby airfields.
There are many reasons to jump on one of our flights to Bahamas, so book your tour today!
