Welcome to Nassau
We docked on a cloudy morning, but we were able to take some pictures of the scenery from the boat. Our first adventure called for a short boat ride to a little island known as Blackbeard's Cay. There we were to spend the morning relaxing on the beach. However, the boat ride took 1/2 hour each way, so what was supposed to be a 3 hour excursion ended up being an hour of traveling and 2 hours on the beach.

Then we headed back to mainland Nassau to catch up with our afternoon excursion, which was the YellowBird party boat. It started out pretty cool, with a live 4-man band playing as we made our way to the destination. We were given unlimited complementary cups of rum punch, 2 at  time. We sat on the top deck with our drinks and just stared out to sea, listening to the music.

Then the announcer comes on the PA system and announces that we are 5 minutes away from our destination, and proceeds to tell us a story about - you guessed it - Blackbeard's Cay. Twice in one day!

At least this time we had the island to ourselves (and whoever else was on the boat) and really got to enjoy the beach. It was a lot warmer at this time, so I spent most of the time in the water, swimming and snorkeling. On the way back, the party boat had a DJ playing all kinds of music, and more complimentry rum punch. Somehow, the second trip to Blackbeard's Cay was much better than the first! If we had known that both excursions would have taken us to the same place, we would have done something different in the morning! If you go to Nassau and need something to do in the afternoon (like there's not enough stuff there to do!), I recommend getting loose and taking the party boat tour.
