Ok I NEVER complain about anything-I am a polite canadian that loves anything and any moment that I am not in the bitter cold of Jan. so please take this review serious-this is a waste of time. I live for anything or any moment in nature/appreciated nature-but really if it wasn't for Captain Bill's wit, the all inclusive LITE beer(the... More

We wanted to take a boat tour and snorkel the south side of Provo and choose Ocean Outback and Captain Bill and were glad we did. First understand that as he picks you up off Sapodilla Beach you must walk through the water to get on the boat but it is quite shallow and a nice sandy bottom. He first... More

This was our second time out with Captain Bill on his ocean outback adventure tour. We had the pleasure of taking his tour two years ago when we were in Providenciales. We were very happy to see that he was still offering his tours. Bill and his crew take you on a wonderful trip to a real pirate cave where... More

We had the best time. Our captain and his staff were fun and watching them dive for conch was so cool they took us to a lot of places like iguana island and the conch salad was amazing.

Great experience! We with husband and 6 year old and she had a great time. The water on this side of Provo is MUCH calmer and prettier than the tours leaving from Grace Bay. However, the reef you'll see is a smaller. I have to say though, I saw more fish in the smaller reef. We saw a huge starfish,... More

I viewed the 4 hour snorkel and lunch trip as being okay. Being picked up from the beach, wade through the water, was interesting. The first part of the trip was to look for sea turtles. Note, when asked it was stated we would not see turtles at the snorkel location. You pass a few rock formations on the way... More

From the phone call to make reservations to the actual outling, the experience was ver enjoyable. Captain Bill is very entertaining and informative. The BBQ lunch is cooked on the boat and it was delicious!!! I would highly recommend an outing with this crew!!!!

Fun filled, relaxing 4 hour tour. The adventure starts in the serene beautiful Sapodillo Bay which is located 15 minutes from the main tourist trap resorts. You are picked up right from the beach. As you are heading out you look for sea turtles and "long tails". When spotted Capt. Bill takes the time to stop and allow everyone a... More

Captain Bill and staff provided a safe, fun, and entertaining cruise for all ages. He provided a wealth of information/historical facts with a bit of his own personal comic flair that both kids and adults enjoyed. First, we boarded the boat right from the beach in front of our villa! We all got a brief overview of the safety rules... More

The grumpy old men tour. This trip is filled with Captain Bill’s corny over rehearsed shtick that he repeats over and over until it wears on you. When you try to talk to him when he’s not doing his routine he’s actually very rude. The boat is advertised as a glass bottom boat that isn’t, I don’t even think it... More
