I've been on lots of snorkel excursions over the years and never enjoy having to stand in line to board, having strict timeframes to honor and sharing the water with 70+ strangers. That's why Bahamas Boat Tours was perfect. I loved the idea of having our own boat, own captain, and the ability to do whatever we wanted to do on our own time. I booked through email with Carl, and he was very responsive and easy to work with.
We went out with Captain Danny in the red boat on a Monday afternoon. The boat was clean, comfortable, and plenty spacious. We had 6 adults in our party, but there definitely would've been room for more. Instead of telling us where he'd be taking us, Danny asked us what we'd like to do. We asked for a quick tour of the island and then to spend lots of time snorkeling. We trusted him to pick out the best spots. He took us on a great tour and then to a reef to snorkel. He had snorkel equipment for us and it was all in great shape and very clean. He drove by the island where "Gilligan's Island" was filmed and pointed it out. My mother-in-law was really excited about this, so Danny made the snap decision to pull up and let us wander the island for a while. It was so nice to be on our own schedule instead of someone else's. Danny took us to a great beach with crystal clear water next and let us swim and explore.
We loved our time so much that we booked another tour for Wednesday afternoon. He took us to all new spots the next time, and the reefs were just amazing. We also went fishing that day, which was one of the highlights of our whole vacation (and I'm not a big fishing fan!). My husband, his brother and father all caught 3 or 4 fish each.
Danny was so professional and really listened to us to make our trips great. We'll book a tour with him and Carl every time we're in the Bahamas.
