Default Taxi

When we were in Nassau last May, a Taxi was the cheapest and easiest way to get to Atlantis. It was $4.00 per person each way. The Water Taxi might be cheaper $3.00 per person each way, but they are definitely not convenient as it is quite a hike (1/2 mile or more?) from where let you off to the hotel.

Agree with Berry but pass up the drivers hawking on the pier by the ship. They will make you wait until they fill their van which can take awhile and they really don't give a rats if it inconveniences you. Go off the pier to the square which seems to be taxi central, tell them you want to leave NOW and won't put up with waiting. They will shrug and drive you to Atlantis. The going rate is $4 but don't tip because the fare to normal people is less than $3. Don't pay the toll at the bridge either. Most drivers get waved through, some stop to chat and some will try to get you to pay. Don't. Catching a cab back is no problem except for the one way streets that make the return trip twice as long as the one going. You do get to see the seedy side of Nassau.

More than you ever wanted to know.

Yes but there is something to be said for riding on top of Gilligans ship the Minow, brought back from the deep, with resin deck chairs screwed to the roof while some old
out islander gives you a harbor tour. Take a cab there and the water taxi back(the walk
is all downhill on the way back) .You have to "experience the water taxi at least once.

WE actually took the harbor tour that included the tour of Atlantis and after the harbor tour, we had to walk the few blocks to Atlantis, it was no big deal, took around 10 minutes. Did take the water taxi on the way back, nice relaxing ride and drops you off right by the pier.

No matter how you get there, just be sure to check the place out, its really something to see, enjoy!

The harbor tour boats I've seen look like something that washes ashore in Florida to be met by immigration. Like the downhill walk and water taxi back. My wife found shopping in the mall at Atlantis to be favorable to what she finds in the stores in town we personally support. Would be a shame to make more than one trip to Nassau without checking out the property.
