ARRR you ready for a Pirate Adventure?!

Stop 1: The Caves

Nassau’s caves were created by the sea, millions of years ago. The area that is now the caves was originally at sea level, and ocean waves gradually wore away the softer parts of the sedimentary rock, leaving what are now large hollows. It is thought that, The Lucayans, the original inhabitants of The Bahamas, used the caves for various purposes, including food storage and to protect themselves during hurricanes. These caves are now home to fruit bats. If you are lucky, you may even get to see one!

Stop 2: Cable Beach

This beach is world famous for its fabulous sand and crystal waters and for the myriad upscale resorts that line it. A few miles west of Nassau is Cable Beach, covering two and one-half miles of fabulous beach with five first-class or luxury resorts, a golf course, nightlife, and the largest casino in The Islands Of The Bahamas. Today, it's the ultimate playground for fun in the sun. There are all the usual water sports and activities and plenty of space for sunbathing.

Sight 3: The 'Fish Fry'

Arawak Cay offers the authentic atmosphere of the Bahamian Fish Fry with vendors selling made to order conch salad, fried fish and other Bahamian dishes. Known locally as “The Fish Fry,” Arawak Cay dates back to 1969, when Nassau Harbour was dredged. The sand taken from the harbour was used to build Arawak Cay, and since that time, the restaurants of this iconic area have served traditional Bahamian fare to millions of locals and visitors alike.

Sight 4: Rawson Square

Rawson Square located in downtown Nassau, is the gateway to the city for cruise-ship passengers. It was named for Sir Rawson W. Rawson who was Governor of The Bahamas during the late 1860s. In the middle of the square is a bronze bust of Sir Milo Butler, the first Bahamian Governor General in an independent Bahamas. A fountain in the square was named for Sir Stafford Sands, the first Bahamian Minister of Tourism.

Stop 5: Queen's Staircase

The Queen's Staircase, commonly referred to as the 66 steps, is a major landmark that is located in the Fort Fincastle Historic Complex in Nassau. It was hewn out of solid limestone rock by slaves between 1793 and 1794 and it is said that it provided a direct route from Fort Fincastle to Nassau City. These steps were later named in honour of Queen Victoria, who reigned in Britain for 64 years from 1837 to 1901.

Stop 6: Fort Fincastle

This Fort was constructed of cut limestone c. 1793 and strategically placed atop Bennet’s Hill to protect historic Nassau town and its harbour; it was built under the governorship of John Murray, also called Viscount Fincastle, in the shape of a paddle-wheel steamer.

Sight 7: Government House

Government House, located on a 10 acre estate, stands on Mount Fitzwilliam and is the official residence of the Governor General of The Bahamas. It dates back to 1801 and this imposing pink and white building on Duke Street is an excellent example of the mingling of Bahamian-British and American Colonial architecture.

Stop 8: Graycliff Hotel

Graycliff is more than a hotel, it’s an experience. Dating back to the 18th century, this beautiful colonial mansion is rumored to have been built by the pirate Captain John Howard Graysmith. Throughout its illustrious history the hotel has played host to many of the world’s luminaries, including the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, Sir Winston Churchill, Aristotle Onassis, and The Beatles. Today, Graycliff is one of the most unique hotels in The Bahamas, with charming accommodations, exceptional amenities, and award-winning dining.

Stop 9: John Watling's Distillery

What would a pirate tour be without.... RUM!

John Watling’s Distillery home to John Watling's famous rums, the “Spirit of The Bahamas” offers complimentary tours at its home, the Buena Vista Estate, in Downtown Nassau. The historic Estate, founded in 1789 and overlooking the harbour, is the site where Bahamians hand-craft John Watling's small-batch rums.

Extremely Satisfied with this tour. Great communication during the booking process and when our day at port shortened, they were very accommodating to change our tour time with little time to respond.Our tour Guide, Dexter, picked us up at the agreed location on time, making his way through the busy streets of Nassau in his Pirate outfit to get to us. The jeep was in great condition! Our tour was filled with the interesting history of the Island, Especially the pirates (my favorite), but not exclusively Pirate history. Our tour guide knew his stuff, not just because it was his job, but because it was his history as well. It was obvious he was a local, everywhere we went people greeted him with a smile. We felt very safe and welcomed. Although all the locations we visited had significance and none felt like filler, the tour guide was flexible and catered the tour to us. He made a special stop for us to get some of Nassau delicacy Conch Salad made fresh in front of us at a local hangout he recommended. It was amazing. At the end of the tour he got us back to the port entrance right on time to get back on the ship. A+ from start to finish! I highly recommend this tour.tip: Some locations have the opportunity (not required) for climbing stairs and on rocks in caves, so comfortable, close toed shoes may be preferable.

This was am amazing experience. The communication from booking until us even leaving items in the car was impeccable. All the stops gave us the opportunity to get a taste of how locals live. From eating some delicious stew which was suggested by our amazing to tasting freshly made rum cake. This is also a great way to support local businesses. Captain Dark Chocolate was polite, professional, knowledgeable and most of all fun. This is great for couples or for families. Thank you so much.

If you like to explore and learn on your excursions this is the one for you. Our tour guide was absolutely fantastic! He showed us some awesome places on the island and gave a great history of the Bahamas and its pirate roots. The private tour gave us the opportunity to see what we wanted to see and spend as much or as little time at each stop as we wanted. Would definitely recommend!

Pirates Jeep was such an incredible time. The rain, thundering, and lightening did not prevent us from having a great time. Our tour guide is very knowledgeable about the island and gave us so much history that we truly appreciated it. We love learning history so it was perfect. I highly recommend doing this tour.

This was a great tour from the time Captain Dex picked us up until he dropped us off. He provided us options on which which stops we wanted to take and his knowledge of the Island was incredible. We've been a lot of places and had a lot of guides, but this was one of the best. Don't pass up going down into the cave!

Pirate Jeep Tours delivered an amazing day with Captain Dex. We got to see all the cool sites, (caves, fort, queens, staircase, and distillery to name a few... ) in the Bahamas and learned so much history on the island, culture and pirates. Dex was a great tour guide and made our visit! Highly encourage anyone visiting Atlantis and Nassau to take this tour, it is well worth your time and money
We absolutely loved this tour! If you want fun, history, and a tasty experience, I suggest you book. We had 6 adults and a 1year old and they accommodated us very well. Their knowledge in pirate history and island history is thorough and interesting. It’s also very interactive so the more you engage, the more fun you’re going to have!

Captain Dexter picked us up at our hotel with his First Mate and trainee, Otto. They both have warm and welcoming personalities, and were focused on our comfort. They told stories about the history of the island as well as current events and politics. They took pictures at the sites, answered questions, and by the end I would count them both as friends.I was skeptical when the concierge suggested a pirate themed tour for a couple who is close to retirement age. I had guessed this was aimed at families with younger kids, but I was wrong. Dexter and Otto are both local guys, who love their country and heritage and are willing to share it with you for 3 hours, in a comfy jeep.

This was a great tour! I thoroughly enjoyed the sights and stops. Although my friends and I were locals, John (our tour guide a.k.a Captain White Beard) enlightened us with many facts that we weren't aware of. Also, John was very considerate, hospitable and helpful. We were comfortable, engaged and were also offered non-alcoholic beverages to keep us hydrated. I would definitely recommend this tour for a mix of adventure and relaxation👌🏽

We had an amazing time on our tour. We really appreciated being picked up at our hotel. My husband really enjoys pirate history and was excited to not only tour historical places but also homes and businesses of pirates that were still standing and in use today. Dexter was extremely knowledgable not only on piracy, but also the island's history. The tour was intimate and conversation flowed easily. We saw far more of the island in our 3 hour tour than we had our entire trip. It was also my husband's birthday and Dexter surprised him with a t-shirt! It was a highlight of the trip and I will be sure to let anyone know visiting Nassau that it is a must!Thank you for the memories!

We (family of 4) had an incredible time on the Pirate Jeep Tours. John was our pirate guide for the day and was extremely knowledgeable about the island. We were staying on the other side of the island in Palm Cay and they came right to our door to pick us up and start the tour. All of the stops were great and we got to see many different sights we definitely wouldn't have ventured out to see on our own. The bat cave was our first stop, which was super unique and John took us down in to really get the full experience. Our last stop was John Watling's Distillery where we surprisingly got to hang out with Dexter (John had another tour to start) and enjoy a tasty flight of fine Bahamian rums with a tour of the distillery. This was an awesome experience my family will never forget! I highly, highly recommend it!
