Default Renting Scooters In Nassau, Bahamas?

Alright,

I have spent hours and hours even days, searching for a place we can reserve 3 scooters in Nassau. I found one web site..they take reservations..but when i emailed them to ask for directions they said they are not even on paradise island.. so anyone know of any sites thati can visit to reserve some scooters? I heard that most every HOTEL there has scooters for rent, but the hotel i emailed..has yet to reply back and that was over a week ago. Usually do you need to reserve scooters? or are their plenty around the port??

Thanks,
David.

I didn't see any scooters there. If you rent one watch out for the traffic. They drive like maniacs.

Right on the pier there is a number of scooters for rent. You don't have to reserve one. Every time I've been to Nassau there's been about 30 of them lined up and available for rent.

HOWEVER, most people and officials do not recommend renting scooters as traffic is very dangerous and they drive on the left side of the road.

BTW, Paradise island is separate from Nassau, which is on New Providence Island.
There is a bridge though which connects them.

Thomas

Personally, I wouldn't even think about doing a scooter in Nassau/Paradise Island. Yes - they drive on the left. Streets are narrow and jammed. Bridge would be dangerous. Bermuda is one thing, where scooters are the norm. Nassau - no scooter for me there!
