Amazing afternoon out on the water
Feb 2020
I found Captain Damian through Tripadvisor (thank you to everyone who already reviewed!) and I'm so glad we did a tour with him!

A group of friends and I stayed at Baha Mar for a few nights for a girls' trip, and we wanted to get off the resort one day to get out on the water and see more of the Bahamas. I did a lot of research on Tripadvisor and a few blogs, and no one had better reviews (or better prices) than Damian. I emailed him directly before our trip to confirm his availability & he also offered several options to personalize the tour. Depending on the time of day and what you want to do, he can add lunch, snorkeling with turtles, and other add ons.

We took a taxi form the resort and met Damian downtown near the back of the straw market and were quickly on our way. Damian gave us a great background history of the area and a lot of the sights we were seeing (Atlantis, celebrity homes on Paradise Island, etc.). We anchored off of Pearl Island for snorkeling -- Damian provided snorkel masks and life jackets, and he even got in the water with us to show us where the reefs were! Our group of 6 all agreed we had never had a better snorkeling experience. The surroundings were of course beautiful, but one of the best things about this experience was that it was such a small group! It was so personalized and unique - we got lucky that it was just us on the boat that day!

After snorkeling, Damian mixed up a batch of his famous rum punch and we anchored off another nearby island. We went ashore to relax on the beach (brought our own towels), sip rum punch, and enjoy some light snacks provided by Damian. It was so relaxing, and such a beautiful beach. Not to mention a nice change of pace from the crowds at Baha Mar!

We truly had such a great time with Damian and this boat ride ended up being a top highlight of our whole trip! He is the perfect balance of friendly & professional and made sure we had a great afternoon on his boat! Thank you for being such a great captain & guide and for such an unforgettable experience!

Great day with Damian and Rough and Ready!
Feb 2020 • Family
I would highly recommend booking a trip with Damion. If spending a day on a boat in the beautiful blue water, stopping to swim with turtles and snorkeling to view beautiful fish around a reef is your plan you can’t go wrong with Ruff and Ready tours. My daughter and I met him at the dock in downtown Nassau and we boarded along with about 6 others and had a fabulous day.

Best snorkel experience ever
Feb 2020 • Couples
We had issues booking with Love Beach Cruises due to the captain, but Damien and Mario were kind and generous with our frustrations. They brought us on their boat and gave us an experience we will never forget! There were three long stops, first one was to see the turtles. The captain got right into the water and brought if you where the turtles were. We even saw some sting rays! Next stop was to a small island for some beach time. The views were incredible. The third stop was at Pearl Island. Oh. My. Goodness. If I could live there I would. You jump in and see all sorts of exotic fish and beautiful corals. They supplied us with crackers to feed the fish from our hands! This was in deeper water, but you could see out for miles on the sandy bottom. Damien and Mario provided snacks and a healthy amount of refreshing rum punch! This day was the greatest day, and the staff is well deserving of every penny, so worth it!

Damien is very experienced in piloting a boat. Damien and Mario were very considerate with the passengers with knee and hip issues. They are kind people and just fun to be around. I highly recommend this tour.

Good time going out with them, showed us around for a great price! Will definitely use them when in town again fishing! Hopefully he'll have that new boat that'll make it to pig island!

Best day in Nassau ever!
Jan 2020 • Friends
We booked this not really knowing what we were going to be doing, but checked out the reviews and they were awesome. Captain Damian and Ty were so accommodating, small group 8 people total. Went to snorkel with turtles and then to pearl island. It was so nice to get away from the crowds. We were on cruise ship and they made sure we were back with plenty of time, they made sure we had a lot of fun! Make sure you bring lots of sun screen and keep applying.

You pick up tour near the ferry boat, you can have tourist info give them a call when you get off the ship and they will tell you when to meet them by ferry boat.

Best tour I have done in Nassau and was so happy we did. If you have any questions let me know. This is a 5 plus plus plus star tour.

We bought the tour straight from captan Damian, next to the cruise ship terminal in Nassau! It was the best decision ever! We had a GREAT time, we went snorkeling and we stopped at Pearl Island.The price was a lot better than a lot of the tours sold by the cruise ship line and we had rum punch, beers and drinks included. The boat wasn’t too crowded, it was just us two, a family of four and two other couples! Since the group was really small the captan asked at what time each of us needed to be back on the different cruise ships and kept truck of the time for not making us late.
On Pearl Island we had the opportunity of using their water toys with NO CHARGE, they had Kayaks, paddle boards and different floats!
Highly recommending this tour 😍
Greetings from Italy, captan!

Best boat tour
Oct 2019 • Friends
We booked a boat tour with captain Damian and it was a great experience. He’s super profession and very nice and easy to deal with. He wasn’t super pushy like some of the other guides there, and made us feel really comfortable. The tour was great. It included snorkeling, a private beach tour, and he provided drinks along the way. Great value and highly recommend.
