I would highly recommend a day trip with Powerboat adventures! The trip starts off getting picked up for your hotel (Atlantis in my case) and dropped off at the Ferry Terminal. You are checked in and wait to begin boarding. The boat ride out was smooth, but very long (over an hour.) I sat in the very front of the... More

We took the power boat tour, to the island with the Iguanas and then later to feed the sharks and sting rays.. I do it all again, in a heart beat!

Just got back and cannot say enough good things about the whole experience. From the staff, the food, the beautiful island, everything was top notch, including top shelf liquor in the free bar. Please note, the earlier you check in, the better seat selection you will have. If you don't want sea spray sit in the back of the boat.... More

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.
