Deadman's Reef (Paradise Cove) Tours

Deadman's Reef (Paradise Cove)
Just off Paradise Cove on Grand Bahama’s southwest coast, Deadman’s Reef is one of the area’s top snorkeling spots. The shallow waters are teeming with coral, colorful reef fish, turtles, rays, and more, and are ideal for all levels.

The Basics
The best way to experience Deadman’s Reef is to snorkel. You can swim to the reef from the white-sand beach at Paradise Cove (grab one of the floating rafts, if you need a break), paddle a kayak, or pay for a boat to take you there and back. Afterward, dig in to some fresh seafood at the beachside grill, and wash it down with a cold beverage.

For a hassle-free day, book a package that includes round-trip transport from your hotel or cruise ship, snorkeling equipment, and a meal.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There’s a fee to access Paradise Cove.
  • Amenities include a bar and grill, restrooms, showers, lockers, and equipment rental (e.g. snorkeling gear, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, beach chairs, and umbrellas).
  • Snorkeling instruction is available.
  • Avoid touching or disturbing the wildlife, including coral.

How to Get There
Paradise Cove is located on Grand Bahama Island, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) from Freeport. If you’re not on an organized excursion, you can drive or take a taxi; however, be aware that some prices assume a minimum number of passengers. 

When to Get There
The reef is enjoyable year-round, and tends to be busiest December through April. Hurricanes can happen between June and November—be sure to check the weather.

Other Grand Bahama Island Snorkeling Spots
Similar to Deadman’s Reef, Peterson Cay is known for its shallow waters. To reach it, you’ll need to rent a boat or kayak. One of two blue holes in Lucayan National Park, Ben’s Cave is popular with scuba divers as well as snorkelers. And to marvel at coral beds, head to Silver Point Reef, south of Freeport.
