Sightseeing in the Bahamas

Local operators on Grand Bahama and New Providence offer a wide variety of sightseeing tours. Many taxi drivers also psrovide specialized sightseeing tours and will often know more about the sights and sounds of the islands than the scheduled tour operators.

In Nassau, one such driver who comes readily to mind is Mr. Pemmi Sutherland. The man is an absolute mine of information and trivia, and a great source of fun in the bargain. Pemmi can be reached through Li’l Murph Taxis, phone 242-325-3725.

On the Out Islands, sightseeing tours are provided by local taxi drivers, who can be hired by the hour, but come much cheaper if contracted for the full day.
