Come spend a day with us and fully experience Eleuthera from a native's viewpoint. We offer tours that get you out on the water so you can see beyond the beach... you can experience what it is to be Bahamian! Snorkel for conch - a sweet delicacy from the sea; fish with just a handline to catch some local favorites such as snapper, trigger, groupers; explore the sparkling crystal clear shallows around the shifting sandbars near deserted islands; savor a locally harvested meal freshly prepared and grilled on an open fire on the beach; snorkel beautiful reefs right off shore; explore remote lighthouses and sandstone cliffs; and enjoy a refreshing rum punch! This is a completely natural day in an unforgettable environment.

My husband and I were the only members of the Lighthouse Beach tour the day we went and we were treated better than royalty. We were treated like family. We thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Donald & Kristel. As we climbed up to the lighthouse we were rewarded with incredible views everywhere we looked. We could also see Donald setting... More

Kristelsea, Owner at Eleuthera Tours, responded to this review

You made me smile with this review! It's funny how often the cruise ship tour folks whistfully pine for the food, alcohol, and simply time and access that our tour provides. A 15 minute stop at this beach simply is not enough. Donald and I love all you folks who visit us. Even though we're "working", we get to enjoy... More

Kristel and Captain Donald are fantastic and they have built an amazing company with Eleuthera Tours. I've gone on the Schooner Cays tour twice, once with my boyfriend and once with my family, and both days were one of the best days of my life. Captain Donald sets you up with everything you need to enjoy a day on your... More

I was fortunate to randomly meet Donald on one of his other excursions and connected immediately. Our mutual respect for the ocean, environment and island was obvious. My wife and I hired Donald, on our honeymoon, to take us for a day of boating and fun. Little did I know, that it would create an unforgettable memory for all of... More

Captain Donald is the real deal! We had such a great time with him and his son we ended up doing 2 days out with them. The first trip we did was to the schooner cays...you get to hang out on your own private island while the crew cooks you lunch. The stories and getting to know Donald was just... More

Great communication with Kristel via e mail before arriving. We were met at the gate at Princess Cay by a young man named Tuleeno. He was very gracious and was familiar with all the roads--such as they were--in that long stretches were continuous hills and holes. (Do not attempt this drive in a car) We were in a SUV and...

from the moment we met Donald we felt safe and welcomed. Actually the great service started when we talked/emailed with his wife Kristel to plan the trip. Everything is taken care of from snorkeling/fishing equipment to food and water for the trip. Learning about the island from donald and his son were great and the snorkeling was beautiful.

We booked an Adam & Eve style Schooner Cays day trip with Eleuthera Tours and it was the most amazing experience. Not only was every detail thought of for the trip but you can tell that they really enjoy what they do. We loved that Donald and his son set-up the table, fire and lunch fixin's while my husband and... More

We had a lovely 5 hour day trip away from our Princess cruise ship crowd. It was simple to exit the gate and embark with 8 other folks on a short ride to Lighthouse beach. Others have commented on the comfort of the ride. We rode in the back of Donald's truck in nice comfy chairs; it was like something... More

My husband and I booked a private Schooner Cays trip for our 3rd wedding anniversary and it was absolutely wonderful and worth every single penny. I cannot say enough about how amazing Donald and Kristel are - they made our anniversary truly unforgettable. We met Donald and his son at Cape Eleuthera Marina and they brought us out by boat...

Thank you Donald, Talino and Kristel for a wonderful snorkeling adventure. Thank you for customizing a tour for me and making a most enjoyable afternoon with friends and new friends. Your patience and support really helped me as a novice get over my fears of the ocean. I felt very safe and in good hands, with Talino keeping me safe... More
