On a whim we booked last minute the day before our vacation ended, and it was the highlight of our trip! Our family had so much fun I wanted to review this boat tour (I'm not a big reviewer either) and was SHOCKED to see the two nasty reviews proceeding. Don't buy into what the negative nancy pants are trying... More

I found this excursion to be quite terrible. Every single joke was told by captain bill at least 10 times, the crew was not friendly, the snorkeling spot was a rock.. When there is one of the biggest coral reefs in the world in the Turks, sorry, but a rock doesn't even come close to cutting it. The boat was... More

Two negative responses back to back in a month.....really? If you look at the past six years of reviews; you will find I have NEVER responded to even one review. Occasionally there is something that I do not agree with but try to find something in the review that will make my tour better. Constructive criticism is always welcome but... More

Save your money and go out with a local. Captain bill was quite rude and abrasive. His snorkel "spot" as he calls it is actually a rock with some sea weed growing on it in very rough water. Many children and parents needed help getting back on the boat but that help wasn't coming from bill or his crew so... More

Please be advised that three out of the last six reviews depict me as rude & nasty; is this a conspiracy or a "copy-cat" mentality? I trust you review the others and make your own call. I have been the captain of ocean outback for the past 28 years (the longest established boat tour operator on Provo,) I pride myself... More

It begins on a Gorgeous Beach on Sapodilla Bay, the 40 ft catamaran has two decks , the lower one having shade, there are bathroom facilities below deck. Captain Bill is very entertaining and keeps you laughing. The staff is very friendly and helpful. As we cruise 12... More

If you're looking for a boat excursion during your visit to Turks and Caicos, this is the one! Captain Bill was hilarious but also very knowledgeable and professional. His crew was great as well. The trip lasted about four hours and included a 1/2 hour snorkeling stop, a stop at Pirate's Cove, and a stop at the very remote Bonefish... More

Captain Bill and his crew are great and the boat trip is awesome. Sapodilla Bay where pick up is might be nicest secluded bay we've ever been to so definitely swim there afterwards. Good snorkeling , good food and great time exploring different areas of island. Highly recommend.

This was a great trip. My husband, father in law, 11 year old, 8 year old and 5 year old enjoyed the adventure. Captain Bill is friendly and professional. He arranged for a van to pick us up tour hotel and deliver us to our departure spot. We set out looking for Myrtle the turtle and then headed out to... More

A fantastic day tour! First we stopped for some snorkeling. The equipment was supplied and everything was explained in how to use it, safety as well. Then we went to the pirate caves, Captain Bill was fantastic in his stories and explaining everything along the way. Then we went to a beach, we were the only people! It was so... More

We were looking for something that we could be on a boat, do a little snorkling and see part of the island/beaches we hadnt yet seen. Captain Bill is hysterical. He knows where to find the marine life, knows his history. The value of this experience was well worth the $98 we paid(this also included lunch, rum punch, beer and... More
