Freeport is located on the bustling, exciting island of Grand Bahama.  Visitors flock to the pristine beaches, whether for a week or a beautiful day in port off a cruise ship.  Freeport has something to captivate the entire family! 

With gems like the Xanadu Beach and Lucayan National Park, you will never run out of things to explore!


When you are looking for a fun and stress-free way to spend your time in Freeport, then look no further than Calabash Eco Adventures.  This is a fantastic tour group, where they really demonstrate that they understand how precious your time on the island is to you.

Whatever your adventure level, they have something that will make your visit beyond memorable, complete with an expert guide to ensure that you are comfortable, well-educated, and having the time of your life! 

If you want to see a bit of the island, while having the most amazing snorkel and kayak adventure, then you definitely want to take the tour to Peterson Cay!  I will start off by saying that I have never considered myself strong at swimming, snorkeling, or kayaking, yet I found this tour to be one of the best I have ever experienced!  While pushing my boundaries just enough to make it exciting, this tour is wonderful in that you can truly customize it to your own pace.  Kayaking out to Peterson Cay, a gorgeous island only 1 1/2 acres, only took about 15 to 20 minutes, so it was just enough to really experience the thrill of kayaking, without worrying if you could make that next paddle. 

Once on the island, the tour guide morphs into a brilliant snorkel expert, helping everyone on with their gear, illustrating the best way to breathe, and keeping an eye on everyone as they begin to wade out into the crystal clear water surrounding Peterson Cay.  I can not stress how much I prefer this method of snorkeling, versus jumping out of a boat into the deep water!  With the option of snorkeling out as far as one feels comfortable, this is excellent for beginners!  And if you just aren't up for the snorkeling portion, then guests may spend some relaxing time on the beach. 

With a long list of other tour options, including diving expeditions, Calabash Eco Adventures can ensure that you have the perfect time in the Bahamas!
