We had a wonderful day with Captain Sam. Such a low key, helpful and considerate host. We asked to go out to Anguilla to snorkel and have lunch. He gave us a great tour, visiting a number of good snorkeling sites, Crocus Bay and Shoal Bay. He even took photos for us and emailed them to us once we got... More

This was my first powerboat experience but it was the best. It got bumpy on one stretch for 15 or 20 minutes but ok as long as you sit in the back and not on the front of the boat. Capt. Sam was fantastic and very courteous and knowledgable. He was fun to joke around with and made the trip... More

We had a spectacular day with Sam on our trip over to Anguilla to view some of the most gorgeous beaches, with stops to get out and enjoy swimming and walking on the beaches which we almost had entirely to ourselves. Sam provided the drinks and we provided our own lunch to save some money which worked out great for... More

We had a wonderful trip with Captain Sam! The weather was not cooperating, so we postponed our trip for a couple hours with ease. We went to Anguilla for the day and we are able to stop at some of the famous gorgeous beaches. But in addition, we also stopped at lesser known spots that were equally beautiful. Overall a... More

Very prompt and courteous service from boat captain Sam following my email enquiry, and he tailored the day specifically to our wish to snorkel with sea turtles and sting rays. It's a big powerful boat and a huge amount of fun, and a great day. We were a family of 9, and the boat was perfect and so much better... More

Sam was wonderful! He is so knowledgeable of the island. The tour is an adventure you should only take with Sam. It was an experience of a lifetime! The tour lasted all day. The only thing I would eliminate is the plane watch. By the time you get to this point you are worn out.

We were a group of nine, so had the boat to ourselves, which was wonderful! Seeing the island from the water gives you a whole new perspective and is well worth the cost. Each stop had something different to offer, we enjoyed each and every one. Our guide, Sam, was informative, and allowed us to explore as long as we... More

Scuba Dreams all day island and snorkeling tour is a lot of fun and an outstanding value. I and my two mid-20 year old children had a great outing. For our tour we were the only 3 clients with the Captain and First Mate that day (a benefit of travelikng during the slow season) . The size of the boat... More
