“Fantastic. Thank you, Carl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

It helped the weather was great, but Carl made the day fun and easygoing. With 2 snorkelling novices and 5 other swimmers at various levels the snorkelling was beautiful, good for all skill levels and interesting. Carl accommodated all of our requests. We even managed to fit in some fishing along with an informative tour, all in 4 hours. Would highly recommend for families.

“Fun day snorkeling and fishing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2014

Our family, 5 adults, went out with Capt. Danny for the half day trip. Capt Danny picked us up from the marina near Atlantis. He was prompt and asked if we had everything. He said he would wait while we picked up last minute items. He asked what we wanted to do first... it was our preference. We decided on snorkeling first. The water was colder than expected, but we saw many fish, and the water was crystal clear. He had all the equipment, plus life vests, if we wanted. He didn't rush us, and made it very relaxed. It rained while we were snorkeling and was a little windy. In hind sight, we should have fished first, then snorkeled, but that certain wasn't anything Capt. Danny could control.
Next was the private beach, which was beautiful and peaceful. We relaxed and warmed up in the sun after snorkeling.
After that we went fishing. The guys caught several fish and had a good time. Again, all the equipment and bait was provided by Danny. It was hot while we were fishing, so .... fish first, then snorkel, if you do the morning trip.
We had a great time, and would certainly recommend this trip. I like that we had the boat for just our family, It was our schedule, and we didn't have to accommodate another family. The boat was very clean and well stocked with soft drinks and snacks.
This trip was much better than a crowded beach or cruise excursion. It is well worth the cost. I would definitely recommend Bahama Private Boat Tours.

“Awesome day trip from Atlantis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We went out with Captain Carl for a half day trip of fishing, snorkeling and visiting a private beach. It was a fabulous time - my kids especially loved the fishing part. Carl helped them catch several fish almost immediately and they were thrilled. The snorkeling area he took us to was a bit mediocre in terms of seeing lots of variety of fish but everyone was happy anyway. All in all, a great way to break up a day from the Atlantis. We considered doing one of the other companies but were really happy we chose the experience with Carl - much more intimate and personalized.

“Awesome way to bring in the New Year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Our family of 7 (all adults) chartered with Capt. Danny on Jan. 2, 2014. We were on a cruise on the Carnival Pride out of Baltimore and our stop in Nassau was by far the highlight of our cruise.

We had a glorious afternoon of snorkelling and beach time. The beach was beautiful, quiet, white sand and crystal clear blue water. We did stock up with wobbly bevareges before the trip but Danny was able to attract a Catamaran over so we could replenish our beverage supply after it ran dry. :)

We highly recommend this trip - much better than a crowded overpriced cruise organized excursion. We have friends that will be booking this tour next month.

Many thanks to Capt.Danny.

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

How often is a tour guide: intelligent, funny, kind, knowledgeable and funny--the kind of person you would like to have over for dinner with the family? Not very often, right? Well Captain Carl of Bahama Boat Tours is that person--and happens to be the company owner. In our half day cruise, we toured the Nassau area (with the benefit of Carl's fascinating explanation of history and more), snorkeled at a great reef of his choosing, fished (very successfully) at another reef he found, and got a couple of great restaurant recommendations. Oh, and we all felt very safe at all times because (a) Carl really is a qualified sea captain and (b) he is constantly on the look out for anything that could be dangerous (and not just along to drive the boat). He's a great guy who will show you a great time. All these positive reviews aren't an accident based on our experience as a five-person family. HIGHLY recommended.
