We had an amazing time with James who brought my friends and I fishing, snorkeling, jumping from cliffs... He is passionate, enthusiastic, responsible, and finally, one of the most adorable person ever. If you stay on Spanish Wells or somewhere on Eleuthera, Bahamas Ocean Safaris is a MUST!! I hope to come back there very soon!

Snorkeling, lobstering, guys trying to spear fish... luckily James was able to harvest enough that we could eat dinner that night. Swam with a manatee... I mean it was just great and... More

If you are looking for a knowledgeable, attentive, and friendly guide, James is your man. Bahamas Ocean Safaris is NOT your typical "tourist processing" guide. From the moment you disembark, you get a clear sense that this is truly his passion and it plays itself out as you are catered to for the duration of the tour. You are the... More

If you are looking for a guide that is accommodating, knowledgeable, and friendly, James is your man. He is not a "tourist processing" guide. You get his sole and personal attention for the entire trip, from spotting the best locations to cleaning your catch. Most importantly, James is sensitive to striking that very delicate balance between conservation and sport. After... More

Top notch guide no nonsense James will put you on the fish. Great fishing this morning and even better conversations. James is great all I can say. He will cater to your group also with snorkeling, diving, beaching, You name it. Within a few hours I had pictures waiting in my inbox from our trip!

What a great excursion and awesome time with Bahamas Ocean Safaris! We stayed on Harbor Island and James came and picked us up on the dock - it couldn't get much easier! James is a great captain, a fantastic fisherman, a great diver, and one of the most personable people you will ever meet. As a long-time lobster fisherman with... More

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!!!!!
