I booked powerboat excursion and was a little reluctant that it would be to "touristy". WOW did they prove me wrong, it is non stop entertainment on the most beautiful little island. The reef we snorkeled with sharks was incredible!! The food was great and just an all around fabulous day! We would definitely go again! Well worth the money.

I took my girlfriend on power boat for her birthday. It was the best time. They take you on a 45min boat ride on the small boat or a 55 min ride on the big boat to the Exuma cays. The first stop is a small cay called Allen's cay were you can feed the iguanas you stay there for... More

Our powerboat adventure trip to the Exuma islands was fabulous. Family of 5 (two 15yr olds and a 12 yr old). Best part of our Atlantis vacation! Ride out was a blast, feeding iguanas was cool, hanging out on an uninhabited island was really neat (open bar--nice break from Atlantis price gouging) . Petting stingrays, feeding sharks, snorkeling, and an... More

My husband and I booked Powerboat Adventures through their website and saved 10% off the cost. The price tag may seem steep but it is worth it! Book early because the trips fill up. I booked online when we arrived to Nassau on Monday for Thursdays trip but ended up going on the Saturday trip due to them already being... More

I first need to qualify this review by saying that it was over 10 years ago that I spent a day with Powerboat Adventures while vacationing in Nassau. If you are in Nassau and have the option to take this trip/excursion - I highly recommend. I remember it as one of the best things that I ever did on a... More

Yes this trip is a tad on the expensive side but when you get back you won't be thinking of the price any longer. For starters they are really well organized. On other excursions you get little to no detail on what to expect, times for specific events and generally any idea of what's going on. The Powerboat folks have... More

We booked a long weekend vacation on Shipchannel Cay, therefore this review is not just in regard of the day trip most people will take. We took the power boat trip back and forth as all the other guests, only ours was on different days, as we got to the island on a Saturday and then left the following Monday.... More

My brother in law organized this awesome daily excursion from Nassau for my sister's birthday. The boat ride was fast and fun and it took us to a "paradise lost" type of island where we fed the iguanas and the stingrays, and watched in amazement when the crew got cozy with the sharks. The Captain welcomed us on the island... More

Awesome experience, boat trip to remote cays, feeding Iguana's and Stingrays...snorkeling in the clear blue waters....felt like Jacques Cousteau. What a way to see Bahama's natural wonders and learn a bit about local traditions. (Conch salad anyone?) The crew at Powerboat are awesome. You have to check this out if you plan on going to Nassau.

Just returned from Nassau and did the PowerBoat Adventures Excursion again and it did not disappoint. This is a must-do if you are in the Bahamas. PowerBoat runs a well-organized and entertaining excursion that is good for all ages. The boatride takes you first to a small island inhabited by iguanas (jump off the back of the boat and swim...
