Fishing: Marlin, tuna, sailfish are a plenty in the deep water near the island and on the reefs, grouper, snapper, yellowtail are waiting for you hook.  Charter fishing and rental boats are available at all the marinas.

Golf: The Island has three 18 hole championship courses.

Rugby: The Freeport Rugby Club has a clubhouse on Settler’s Way adjacent to the YMCA. They host matches between Nassau clubs, and clubs from the U.S and UK as well as hosting a Rugby festival each year for teams from Qatar, UK, California, Jamaica, and Canada.

Sailing & Boating: Ride the banana boat, para-sail, or a jet ski (or do all of the above!) at Superior Watersports. Excellent docking facilities with full service bait and tackle shops, gas docks are available at most marinas.

Snorkeling: Because of the excellent visibility of the waters (due to the fact that the soil in the Bahamas is not rich, there is nothing to color the water) snorkeling is a year round event–though in the winter the water is too cold for my tastes (though those Canadians don’t seem to mind). If you snorkel in the winter, I would suggest a wet suit.

Soccer: Soccer matches at the Grand Bahama Football League

Squash: Four courts are located at the Grand Bahama Tennis & Squash Club located behind Freeport High School.

Tennis: Tennis is growing by leaps and bounds. See

Gully Bowe Tennis Center
