I had my doubts at first if this excursion was really worth $200 per head having said this I found the trip well worth every $$ , The price includes round trip transfers from your hotel to the ferry station, includes a buffet lunch (Which was very good BTW) No hot dogs or burgers.. You had steak and fish along... More

Great crew. Fun boat ride. All was as advertised except snorkeling was mediocre. Got my money worth with food and drink and Ray/ shark interaction.

We have been visiting Nassau, specifically Paradise Island for over 20 years. This year, we tried something new and spent a day with the good folks from Powerboat Adventures. The speed boat ride over was thrilling and exciting followed by the opportunity to meet and hand feed "Bahamian Iguanas". The luncheon served was fresh, very tasty and somewhat different from...

I've taken this trip every time I've visited Nassau. It's always great! The staff is wonderful. A bit confusing getting on the boat at the start of the day, but could be because we were half asleep. I love the meal they cook and serve and the snorkeling is fun. Thanks for the great trip.

Of all the activities, I enjoyed this the most. From the boat ride to the island hopping, powerboat is just worth every single cents. I like best at some point in the ride when the boat speeds up and makes splashes and turns to the music of James Bond. And the islands! Paradise.

This was probably one of the most amazing things i have done in my life. The drift snorkeling was fabulous, the open bar and free lunch was delicious, the staff were extremely friendly. the conch show was mouth watering. The up-close feel with all the animals, especially the stingrays which were beautiful, was once-in-a-lifetime. The price also made it feel... More

From feeding the iguanas, jumping into the water, the staff, the demonstrations with the sharks and stingrays was amazing. The island is beautiful as well. The freshly made conch salad made for you was amazing . I would recommend for families! B Thank you for a great day!!!

We have done this trip several times over a number of years and each time it is excellent , this time was no exception ; the boat ride / food / demonstrations on the island fantastic. On this occasion the DK coach driver from boat back to hotel was terrible and in our opinion dangerous . The driver bragged when... More

Our young, 73 year old Dad took this trip a couple years ago (Mom stayed by the pool) and said he had a blast. So when the rest of the family (14 of us) vacationed last week at Atlantis, we jumped at the opportunity. It was amazing!!! The crew was very professional and fun. We visited 2 private islands, one... More
