this is avery reasonable trip and includes lunch, beer, soft drinks and rum punch. It is not the greatest snorkeling trip, but you get to see Pirate's Cove which is worth the trip and is unbelievable in beauty and history. The Captain will never make a living being a comedian, but he and his mate do an excellent job of... More

Those who have written poor reviews of this cruise are clearly the type who are never satisfied with anything! You're complaining because you chose to drink too much or Captain Bill couldn't hold the fish still for you to see them while you snorkeled? Really?? My family found Captain Bill to be very knowledgeable and entertaining, and the various activities... More

This is by far the best, unique boating experience on Providenciales! Captain Bill makes it super special by creating the most fantastic adventure for his guests: super snorkeling, pristine beach, delicious BBQ lunch plus great surprises, which should not be disclosed. Just sign up for the cruise for the best time ever! Our family loves it so much that we... More

Captain bill was great. He loves his job. We went snorkelling, visited a pirate cave and had a BBQ at the beach. Great entertainment for your money. Everyone should go on this adventure.

This was a thoroughly "average" experience in every sense of the word. It wasn't fantastic; it wasn't horrible. Some pros, "ehs," and cons: Pros: --Cost/Value: We saw the ad in "Where When How" advertising $10 off the usual price of $98. Given typical Provo pricing, $88 is not terrible for an event that lasts from 10:15-3:00 and includes unlimited drinks... More

Capt Bill has been running cruises and snorkeling for years - great job on the history of the island - especially Pirates Cove - nice lunch on the beach...A great 3 hours.

We just went today and LOVED it! The entire experience was great. Captain Bill is hilarious and very knowledgeable. From start to finish, it was a great experience. The views are absolutely breathtaking! The food was fantastic, time on the island (just the boat group) was a highlight, the snorkeling was perfect....It was a great day for all of us!... More

We visited Provo from May 10-17 and spent one of the days on a 5hr tour with Captain Bill. We took along our 4 year old and 12 year old boys and we all thoroughly enjoyed the day. After being picked up by Captain Bill we proceeded on our tour. We looked for turtles, stopped at two snorkeling sites, visited... More

We just returned from this adventure and after reading other reviews I must say I am surprised! We had a wonderful time and made some fantastic memories! The chicken and hot dogs were great! Loved the stories (that I am sure he's told a million times). Snorkeling wasn't the best but that wasn't incredibly important to us and the circumstances... More

This is our third trip back to Provo, and our first time doing this excursion. We picked the 1/2 day Pirate adventure and had a blast! Finding Sapodilla Bay was easy, thanks to his perfect directions. A easy wade out to the boat and we were off. There were about 20 people in our group, a mix of adults, teens... More
