Reviewed 15 November 2017

We arrived by cruise ship and took a cab to Lucaya Beach. The cab is $5/person each way. They make you pay for round trip and give you a ticket to hand in for the return. As you are getting into Lucaya look to your right and you'll see the police station. Right before that there is a little sign w/an arrow pointing to the beach. Just follow the sidewalk down and they are sitting at a picnic table in the blue logo shirts. The cab drops you at the Lucaya Market and then you have to walk back to the side entrance to Ocean Motion by the police station. The beach is short in areas and due to Matthew the resorts are closed except for Lighthouse Point. We did the banana boat, para-sailed & paddle-boarded. The Snorkel and Para-sail spots or out from the beach. You get in a boat and they run you out and drop you off to the anchored platforms and then they come get you when you are done. They also have staff at Lighthouse Point and this is where the paddle boards are. They only have 2 boards and again they take you by boat to that end of the beach. You can walk it in 10 mins as well. The beach was not crowded the day we were there and I can say that had the resorts been open with all the people we probably would have left as the beach is not big enough to support the numbers. When I'm on vacation I don't want to be on top of other people. We also discovered it's a closer walk from the Lighthouse beach access to the Market so we went back that way instead of back by the police station. The parasailing equipment is worn and I was nervous about having my daughter go up. But I looked it over and decided at 60 lbs she would be okay. The banana boat was a hit with our kids. They took them for a nice long ride and all you could see were big grins! The guys that run everything are great and try to be very accommodating. The damage from the hurricane has really hurt tourism in this area so they are happy to see tourists. Great weather, blue ocean and nice people would visit again if we were in Grand Bahama.

Took my two daughters parasailing with Ocean Motion while our cruise ship was docked in Freeport and they had a great time. Like seemingly all the fun things to do in Freeport, Ocean Motion is on a beach hidden behind buildings, but the directions that were sent to us at booking were perfect and we found it without a problem. The folks who work at Ocean Motion are very efficient and professional. The three of us who were not parasailing were invited to take the short speed boat ride out to the platform where my daughters were instructed on what to do and how to do it safely. We all stood on the platform while they had their fantastic enjoyable ride and then we all took the boat ride back to shore. Everyone had a great time and I got some great pictures. It took hours to get the smiles off my daughters' faces! A special thank you to Sarah from Ocean Motion for returning my emails so promptly, both when I was booking and the day we arrived to see if they were open that day. (Thunderstorms had rolled through that morning)

Hi !! It's me. So glad the girls had fun. Sorry for the delay in responding. Hurricanes Irma and Maria kept us on our toes, but we are grateful we did not get any direct hits. Thank you for the review we really appreciate it. Hope to see you back soon.

Went on a double parasail with my best friend, I hadn't been on a ride for a long time and forgot how great it is ! The views are absolutely amazing of the shoreline and sea and also saw a ray from above. You feel like you are floating in the sky and the staff are so helpful. They looked after our valuables while we were on the trip and helped us safely to get on and off the equipment. We went early morning at 10am before it got too busy which meant there was no wait and we went straight on. Definitely will go again and recommend to all ages.

My boyfriend and I went on the jet ski tour and had the most amazing time. It was thrilling and enjoyable and it was definitely one of the highlights on our trip! Alexander was our tour guide and he did a fantastic job! My heart pounds faster every time I think of it! The jet ski tour was so much fun, we both cannot wait to do it again!!
