We can't thank James enough for a wonderful day with out exploring the reefs in Spanish Wells! He did everything possible to make us feel at home and comfortable. Great snorkeling and fishing (caught 10 fish, at least 2 dinners for 4!). Got to try spear fishing and line fishing. Our 2 boys (7 and 10) had a blast and... More

If you're thinking of booking a day with James, do it. We spent an amazing day on the water doing two kinds of fishing and drift snorkeling. James is an excellent host and guide and works hard to put you on the fish, a good snorkeling spot, etc. He also makes awesome tuna salad! We would absolutely go with him... More

Best day out ever - Capt James is very well organized, friendly and knowledgeable on the area. Great day organized round what we wanted to do - Cliff Diving, Local History, Snorkeling, Fishing, Sightseeing and swimming - if you went to the Bahamas and didn't take a trip with Ocean Safari;s, you would be making a big mistake!!!!!

We traveled to Spanish wells with two families each having two teenage children. We have been to Spanish wells several times before but decided to do something different this year and book a trip with James on our first day. It was AMAZING! We were out all day on the boat. He took us snorkeling, sightseeing and fishing. He taught... More

We had a great day with James spearfishing and snorkeling. Our teenage boys had an absolute blast spearfishing and the girls loved snorkeling all the reefs that James brought us to. We will definitely book another trip with James when we return to Spanish Wells! I highly recommend booking a trip with James and Bahamas Ocean Safaris.

Went to Spanish Wells from May 12th, 2014 to May 22nd 2014. One of the highlights of the entire trip was our day out with Captain James Dunnam. We, Kristina and myself did not really have a plan as to what we wanted to do when we engaged James and his boat. James was more than willing to work with... More

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful day trip with James and his family. We wanted to snorkel and fish for a day (note: beaches in Spanish Wells are for relaxing and wading, not for snorkeling) and was seeking a knowledgeable guide. Upon our first interaction with James, we knew right away that he would be the perfect guide. He... More

While vacationing in Eleuthera we hired James as our ocean safari captain for a day of fishing and snorkeling. He was an excellent guide. He offered many different options for how to spend the day (scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sight-seeing). James was exceptionally patient with our three boys (11, 5, 5) and never tired of re-baiting their lines as... More
