The Atlantis Marina

My family and I enjoy to travel to the Caribbean, especially the Bahamas.   We have a timeshare at Harborside Resort on Paradise Island and visit the Bahamas once a year.  Some of the things that attract us most to the Bahamas are:

  • Friendly people - Everyone we've encountered on PI and New Providence has been respectful and courteous.  (more on this later)
  • The plane flight is relatively short for us.  We typically leave at 6 a.m. and are at The Point restaurant eating lunch by noon.
  • Economy - We've been there quite a few times.  We know how to do it economically.  It doesn't have to be expensive.
  • Harborside has all the amenities of home.  Kitchen, washer/dryer, stove, blender, utensils, pots, pans, etc.  These things help keep the cost down.
  • Weather - When weather.com says it's going to rain every day, it usually means a quick shower and not rain like we see in the northeast.
  • Cool stuff to do - If you like casino's and tourist traps they have them.  If you like uncrowded beaches and interaction with the locals you can get that too.
  • The dollar is used interchangeably.

Shark Divers in the Bahamas

It just so happens that we were vacationing in the Bahamas when my daughter turned seventeen.  I asked her what she'd like to do for her birthday and her reply to me was "I want to do a shark dive!".  At first I was a bit apprehensive about doing a shark dive, sure I had seen them in the water at a distance on several other dives, but this would be alot of sharks.  My biggest concern was the possibility of putting 2 of my kids in mortal danger underwater in large group of sharks in a feeding frenzy.

We would be swimming with 40 to 50 sharks so close you can touch them.  I reminded her that sharks are wild creatures capable of tearing us to pieces, and they aren't tame, they're conditioned to be fed and can be unpredictable and dangerous.  It didn't seem to bother her much so I setup a shark dive for her, her brother Chris and myself with largest dive shop on the island, Stuart Cove's Dive Bahamas in Nassau.

In 2012 we took a Powerboat Adventures trip to Exuma.  It was well worth the money in my opinion.  Plenty to eat and drink, beautiful beach, shark and stingray feeding and conch salad made fresh on the beach. The boat stopped at Allan's Cay for iguana feeding then proceeded over to Ship Channel Cay for lunch, shark feeding, conch salad, snorkeling and some beach time.  Check out the pictures from the trip below.

While on our October 2015 trip to The Harborside Resort at Atlantis in the Bahamas we had the opportunity to try a new restaurant.  There were four of us wandering around downtown Nassau when we came across the Lukka Kairi restaurant.  It's up on the second floor and as it happens there was a man at the entrance handing out 2 for 1 drink cards and we were up for trying a new place so we decided to give it a shot.  

Because Lukka Kairi is on the second floor it may not be accessible to those that can't climb a flight of stairs.  I can't say if there is handicap access because I didn't think to ask or look at the time we visited.  It's a very open air restaurant with a great view overlooking Nassau Harbor where the ferries and cruise ships are docked.  The motif is your typical island style and the seating is comfortable and roomy.  Food is reasonably priced with good presentation and flavors.  Check out the Lukka Kairi website for a current menu.
