Highly recommend the 007 tour, whether 1/2 day of full day you will not be disappointed. Tremendous value, most importantly a lot of fun, knowledgeable and hospitable guides, great way to see life on the cays first hand. Don't miss this tour!

We loved going with Ray on our ocean safari. We enjoyed the 007 boat ride and stopping along all the cays was truly a highlight of our whole trip to the Bahamas. We fed the pigs and fed the iguanas. I had to keep asking my husband if the water was real and if we were just dreaming. Exuma is... More

This was the first excursion we have done through Island Tours at Sandals. We were picked up late and returned early. We didn't say anything because the trip was not what we were expecting and we were glad to return to the resort. First.. Olie did not take us out, it was his cousin Kelvin, and I don't think he...

My husband and I arranged for the private castawy getaway trip via Sandals Emerald Bay. Upon waiting for our taxi to arrive that morning, we were advised 15 minutes prior to leaving that they could not take us to the island that had been originally planned for, but would take us to an alternate island which was similar, and we...

I want to say upfront that my rating of 4 stars is based on the excursion itself. I would like to give the company 0 stars if I could. We booked the full day Thunderball 007 tour before we left, through our travel agent. The main office told them that only full day tours were available, nothing half-day. They charged... More
