Bahamas Kids & Family Vacation

Experience the perfect Bahamas family vacation at Old Bahama Bay.

Kid-friendly and family activities abound at Old Bahama Bay. The resort’s shallow "kid-friendly" beach waters and over-sized oceanfront guestrooms provide the ideal location for a family getaway on Grand Bahama Island.

Kids can also take advantage of the resort's playground, complimentary beach toys, volleyball, table tennis, real tennis, the children's DVD library, and our Wii station located right on the beach.

Special kids' menus and special meal pricing for children 12 and under available at both Teaser's Tiki Bar and The Dockside Bar & Grille.

The resort offers the following family activities and services:

Bahamian Native Fishing Adventure: A kid and family favorite - Guests can participate in a 6 hours guided fishing excursion to the reefs located near Old Bahama Bay. You’ll be taken to various areas and learn the native way of harvesting conch, lobster, and fish.  Once you’ve had your fill of hunting and exploring, you will be taken to a private island where we will demonstrate the techniques of “Cracking” and skinning the conch and preparing the fish and lobster. Price: $175 per person with lunch prepared from your personal catch on a private island.  (Price without lunch prepared is $125 per person, but catch can still be taken to the chefs at Teasers to be prepared at an additional cost.)
