My husband and I wanted a snorkel trip but not on a reggae party and thought Ocean Oouback Adventures might work but it was a disappointment. The boat is old, Captain Bill was crusty ("Grab your gear and move your rear") and the lunch was hot dogs and really bad chicken cooked on a small grill on the boat. However,... More

After much research looking for the ideal boat excursion to entertain four adults with good attitudes but middle aged aches and pains, and four college/high school kids, we chose Captain Bill. We made many phone inquiries, and frankly, the different companies all sounded the same -- until we spoke to Bill. Bill is a charming straight talker who wouldn't promise... More

This trip was a perfect boat experience for snorkeling the reefs in the quieter Sapodilla bay, as well as the added adventure of investigating a Pirates cove and cave. Captain Bill and his crew were very knowledgeable and guided us to rock carvings made by notorious pirates almost 200 years ago. We were also able to observe two Osprey chicks... More

This is the very first review that I have ever written and I must say, the trip was specatular. My husband & I along with another couple spent one week in Turks & Caicos and it was beautiful. Our most memorible experience was the time we spent with Captain Bill and his crew. We snorkled and then Captain Bill brought... More

What a fun experience! The captain and crew provided us with a laid back, comical, unforgettable and safe experience! During our outing we saw turtles, dolphins, sting ray, starfish and plenty of marine life! We snorkeled for about 30 minutes... Then we headed out to the pirate caves for a quick excursion on land. Then we anchored in along one... More

Today last minute I was looking for an excursion to do with my 8 year old grandson and my best friend and called Capt. Bill and he was very accommodating. It was a few minutes till 10 am and he told me if I could get it together and be at Sapodilla Bay by 10:30 he'd wait. Well we made... More

We were picked up off the beach at Sopadilla Bay and spent 4 hours sailing, snorkeling and sightseeing. The snorkeling location wasn't the best, so we didn't see too much sea life. The views, however, were spectacular and we did see turtles, sharks, an osprey and her chick and plenty of starfish. The lunch was good and the rum punch... More

Before we left there were two turtle spottings. Awesome snorkeling at the first stop. The second stop had lots of bird sightings and wonderful views and cool cave! The third stop had a beautiful deserted beach. Food and rum punch were great! Highly recommend.

Our family of 6 (4 teenagers) had a blast on Captain Bill's boat. Perfect mix for us of activity (snorkelling + exploring) and enjoying the beach and sunshine. Bill was highly entertaining, food hit the spot, and our crew mates were a treat. Also appreciated that it wasn't a "party boat" (no music other than the waves!). A fantastically authentic... More
