Yes...Take the Black Beard rum boat ride... which is a pontoon that takes you to the island, you can kareoke on the way and have drinks ( if you want ) they take you to the beach and you can swim with the sting rays for $25, or just lay on the beach! Plenty of things to do...Jet ski rides..But if you have kids and want to snorkel, You can always buy them snorkel stuff and let them do it right off the shore..I think you see just as much and you buy the stuff cheap at home. Now, If you are going scuba diving, thats different,..... But at Black Beard, they just toss you snorkel and say go ahead! it was a an excursion... We however did the rum boat ride, which was drinks and then you get over there, it's the same as the snorkel one, all people are there togehter, and if you already have the gear, your good for both!!!!!!!!!! and they dont give you some sort of big time gear, it's the same as what you buy at home! I wasnt much on snorkeling though...I laid on the beach and had a few cocktails! watched the people!
But yes, there's no time for shopping after that! Everywhere closes at like 5 or 6pm! Made me mad...But there's not much to buy there anyway! I dont want to discourage you, it's fun fun fun! I have just been to the bahahmas sooooo many times! You'll enjoy it! and if you want to do something fun, rent a motor scooter and go do whatever you want.. We went to see Anna Nicoles grave, not a fan or anything, just wanted to see it!
