Freeport, Bahamas features two Resort Day Pass options. Each offers a great way to treat yourself to an exclusive, VIP shore excursion during your day at port.
We’ve cruised to Freeport many times and have done the “standard” tours. They’re great. Bahamas has amazing beaches, blue waters, weather, and people.
We’ve also realized that the most convenient way to take advantage of Freeport asssets is with a Resort for a Day Pass.
Why choose a resort day pass in Freeport?
There are a bunch of reasons for choosing an All Inclusive Day Pass. Here are our top few.
Bahamas is one of the safer islands in the Caribbean. Very rarely are there safety incidents in and around Freeport Cruise Terminal. However, there's still the uncertainty of traveling abroad.
A resort is your best option if safety is a concern. You'll have no worries within the protected walls of any option below. Security and privacy are valuable amenities at these resorts. We’ve never heard of an incident within one of Freeport’s surrounding resorts. In the rare chance of a health or security issue, you'd want to be at any of these resorts vs an alternative excursion option!
From our map below, you can see that this resort is near your Freeport Cruise Port. You'll access the property with a short taxi ride. You can expect to travel roughly 20 minutes from port to your destination.
You'll have every amenity at your fingertips. No need to worry about haggling over price, finding food, renting beach chairs, etc. And you won’t need to check your watch constantly to make sure your excursion provider will get you back on time. Your only inconvenience will be deciding which drink to order next. This is an easy “problem” to solve since drinks are all-inclusive.
Most organized shore excursions are run by “mom and pop” shops. Many do a great job. But, they’re not held to the same standards as the resort properties. The resorts will likely have newer beach chairs, fresher towels, and cleaner restrooms than any of the smaller providers throughout the island.
You’ll see the cost of an all-inclusive day pass averages roughly $100 per person. This is greater than the cost of this day pass in Freeport Antigua at $89. AND, you’ll find much more included with your resort for a day excursion. Standard shore tours include many "hidden" costs. You might pay for beach access. Chair rentals will cost $20 per. Drink costs will likely be double that. Then you'll likely want to tack on events like kayaking or snorkeling.
You can easily spend $100 per person going "a la carte." And you'll likely leave a bit hungrier and “thirstier” than if the situation were all-inclusive. There's also an intangible value to the buffet style. The freedom to order whatever you want all day long is a huge bonus.
