“So good ..... we went back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

My wife and I were staying at Sandals Exuma in the last week of January and had pre-booked a whaler from Minns about 2 months in advance. It is the ONLY way to experience the harbor area around George Town ... what others say about Chat n'Cill, Starfish Beach, Shell Beach, Sand Dollar Beach - all true! And Minn's makes it happen with very little fuss and a business-like but friendly demeanor. We returned 3 days later and rented again .... what a blast!

“Third time to rent from them”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

I guess we have become a creature of habit as each time we go to Exuma, we rent from Minns!
The freedom you have to visit all the things to do around Exuma can't be beat. Starfish and Sanddollar Beaches, Chat N Chill, Big D's, Peace and Plenty, Fish Fry, Man o War Cay, Crab Cay, etc; this is the ONLY way to visit these places when YOU want. Ain't nothing better than pulling up to Fish Fry, anchoring the boat and enjoying a fresh grilled lobster at sunset!
They have many sizes of boats to choose from to accomidate what you need and the price is pretty fair. Some of the boats are a little 'rough', but get the job done. They have nice information on thier website including maps and the staff is helpful directing you where to go AND where NOT to go (or try).
Miles of deserted beaches where you won't see anyone all day! Sandbars that your feet will sink into! And wildlife like turtles, dolphines, nurse and lemon sharks and rays to enjoy.
Be sure to book ahead of time and if the weather doesn't work out, return the boat!

“Excellent Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

If you're in George Town, I highly recommend renting a boat from Minns. Excellent service and the prices are fair. Book ahead by calling or faxing your reservation as we were disappointed we had to wait a few days for our boat. There are several areas to see, beaches, snorkling, sites, islands and a great way to have some freedom while on vacation. We packed a cooler (brought from home) with some cocktails, snacks and lunch during our days on the boat. There are places to stop and have lunch and so much to see!

“Mimms Water Sports”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011

We have rented a boat from Mimms twice and think this is one of the best ways to see the sites.
They have been very accomidating with changes to the reservations or changing the boat size we wanted to rent.
If you want to see all the available snorkling sites and reefs, explore ALL of Stocking Island, eat at Chat N Chill when YOU want, explore the deserted beaches of Man of War Cay, then renting your own boat is the way to go!
The tour oporaters have their place, but piloting your own way around is one of the best experiences. The harbour area is very safe for the beginner and as long as you pay attention to where you are going, it's pretty hard to hit something!
Next time you're in Exuma, experience the island by boat!
