My wife and I are going to stay at the Grand Lucayan on Grand Bahama Island the first week of November. Is there anywhere to wakeboard down there? Does anyone have any recommendations of things to do in the area? Places to eat, things to see or do?

Wakeboarding in the carribean is a novelty. You do it for the experience of cutting out wide, looking down and seeing the ocean floor clear as can be 40 feet below. It's always choppy, rarely properly equipped, etc. Find a resort with a tow boat (typically 209 dd), get a pull for $20 and enjoy the fact that you rode in the ocean.

Grand Bahama has a ton to do and see. You won't have any problem killing your time. I'd recommend sitting on the beach, getting drunk and tan and spending most of your time in bed with the wife.

The wife and I took a Powerboat tour from Grand Bahama down to the Exuma Islands. Cost me either $400 or $800 for the two of us - but whatever we paid - I would have gladly paid triple and been happy I spent the money. About a 45 minute scarab ride across the ocean, swimming/snorkeling in a lagoon, feeding sharks, feeding iguanas, catered lunch/drinks and snorkeling..

Best money I've spent. They launched about 2 blocks from The Atlantis where we were staying. It was absolutely incredible. The only time in my life where I can say I've felt like I was in "paradise" and we are VERY well traveled to tropical locations.

FML. Probably violated Youtubes music policy. I can see it when I'm logged into my own account..

PLR - if you want to see the video (if you think you'd like to do a power boat tour) - PM me and I'll give you my login.

Totally worth the money, right? Can't even remember what it cost - I just know it was worth it.. It was such a good day.

Thanks for the responses. Jeff MN, something like that sounds like tons of fun. Is this it? http://www.powerboatadventures.com/adventure.php


Does anyone know of a place around there I can find a 209dd and get a pull just to say I was on the ocean....thats all I was really looking for anyway.

Those are the same tours we went on. It's fantastic - I highly, highly recommend it.

Almost all of the "all inclusives" in the carribbean have a towboat. Mostly used to ski - but they will have a 139 Fish for you to ride too. Sandals, Beaches, etc. They all have them. You just have to walk the beach and find one. Most of the resorts in the Bahamas have a public beach out front you can walk up to. They will of course ask if you are staying at their resort - to which you reply with a $20 bill. Works, 100% of the time, every time. ;-)
