I'm going to start this by saying yes, i almost ditched at the last minute. I was very apprehensive about booking a excursion with a company without a website, where all the info i had was through reviews such as this one. HOWEVER, this was by far one of the best excursions i've done. YES there are a few things they could improve on, but they have only been up for a little over 7 months, so kinks are expected.
We met Lamont right outside our ship where he checked us off and designated us a spot to wait for the other who were participating on this excursion. Once we all got there, we piled into a bus where Lamont gave us a brief history lesson and explained that some of the folks with us had booked the West End tour (we booked the East End Tour) therefore we would be splitting. We met at a remote parking lot at the old Internationl Bazaar where Versace used to be, now its just a rundown abadoned building. (Don't fret, its all part of the tour). Lamont explains to us as we got into a smaller van that this area used to be bustling up until the hurricane damaged most of it and the investors fled the area, leaving it that way.
The drive was long, get ready, approximately 50 minutes, but Lamont kept us entertained by pointing out things on the way and giving us alot of information. We stop at a very secluded and gorgeous beach for a bathroom break and resume to the filming location for the Pirates of the Carribbean. Its a gorgeous location, nothing there really just remnants of an building that housed water pumps, but neat nonetheless. We proceeded to Crabbing Bay Beach, to snorkel and kayak. AMAZING beach, im talking pristine water, no one around, i mean NO ONE, just us. We snorkeled over blue holes, saw fish and lobster, and picked up conch and starfish. We then kayaked some as well. The food he provides is absolutely amazing!!! The lobster was phenomenal!!
After we swam and got all tan and tired we headed out towards Lucayan National Park to see some awesome caves and learn about their history. Once again, Lamont was very knowledgeable about all things. We then headed on back to the old Versace parking lot where we hopped back on the bus to port.
Yes it was a little sketchy at first, but Lamont makes you very comfortable and his knowledge made this excursion extremely fun and interesting for us. The 4 other couples with us had just as great of a time. Dont let the akwardness of booking and how they handle certain aspects of their new business throw you off. It was really a fun and entertaining excursion!
