If you have never been here Paradise Island is where most people go. The price for the water taxi is $3 a person each way $6 round trip.Go to the end of the pier and it is on the right in front of the straw market. It is kind of a cool trip. I was disappointed that now if you would like to see the aquarium at the hotel Atlantis there is now a $40 per person fee and this used to be free. There are plenty of activities on the island, i would recommend doing most through the ship for safety reasons, they do incur a little more funds however they are backed by the cruise line.
