I personally had looked forward to this trip for months leading up to our holiday. The weather meant we had it cancelled twice, as all hope vanished that we would be able to go on this trip, it was 3rd time lucky (thanks to the amazing lady at Powerboat Adventures who found us another day to go).

This trip exceeded all our dreams and expectations. We started with iguana feeding which my daughter (17) absolutely loved. We then went to the private island where there were sharks and stingrays swimming freely in the ocean. It was an amazing sight to see. They were so friendly and if you're sensible nothing to be afraid of. The rays love to swim round your feet. Now the pigs, oh my goodness the pigs. They were absolutely adorable. We had the opportunity to feed the pigs and the rays and watched the tour guide feed the sharks in the amazing shark show. The bbq lunch was beautifully cooked and had a lot of choice. Hats off to the chef. The island Is beautifully clean and because its private the only people that are there are the ones on your boat (roughly about 50). Which Is so much better then the other over crowded tours.

Now the staff, where do I start. They were all absolutely brilliant. They were funny and friendly, but not overpowering. They all just come across as loving their jobs. They went above and beyond to make sure every person enjoyed their day and they really look after you.

When you arrive in the Bahamas you will soon find out that this tour offers more than any other for the price. It's very hard to book onto once you arrive so I would suggest booking in advance.

Thank you Powerboat Adventures for the greatest trip of our lives. The memories will last a life time.

They’ve got a well planned and well timed trip. From the timely morning pickup at your hotel, to the pacing of activities, the day was enjoyable and the service was friendly. The current at Ship Channel Cay beach made snorkeling difficult, nevertheless I saw a green sea turtle! The plentiful food options were delicious. The rum punch was great. The animal encounters including iguana, pig and sting ray feeding and watching the sharks being fed all exceeded my expectations. The amount of people on the excursion was also just right; just enough to fill the boat and makes friends if you wanted. But once on the beach you had plenty of room to have time to yourself.
Again, the staff were friendly and talkative. There’s some room for improvement including; the beach could be a bit cleaner at Ship Channel Cay considering it’s a small private property. Also, the effort to get folks back on the correct return shuttle bus was a bit disorganized. Both of these could easily be fixed.
Although the excursion seemed pricey, at the end of the day we felt like we got our money’s worth.
Have fun!

The best trip ever ! When staying in Nassau and looking for a great boat trip across the islands look no further ! Powerboat Adventures took us to two islands - first to feed iguanas ; then the main attraction on a private island 7 min away , including feeding stingrays, sharks and of course the highlight - cute piggies ! It’s a full day trip 8 am - 5 pm with a pick up from your hotel (not many companies offer it we did a lot of research) , including delicious lunch , unlimited drinks, even a little cooking lesson when you learn how to prepare conch salad. Really friendly and professional staff will be looking after you throughout the whole trip. It is definitely a must do excursion in Nassau when it comes down to value, quality and the choice of speedboats trips. We are considering doing it again as staying here for 2 weeks :) . 20/10 Bravo

On March 12, my husband and I paid over $500 for a day of terror and wet, windy misery. Powerboat adventures should have cancelled the long trip to the Exumas on that day because winds were over 25km/hour, but they didn’t. All the other tour operators had cancelled their trips that day; After one and a half hours of being slammed with enormous waves which would lift the boat high, and then pound the boat so hard that it would drop suddenly and throw us all around (no seat belts, btw - some of us confessed to fearing for our lives), we arrived at a deserted Allan’s Cay soaking wet, feeling like we had been in a car accident. During this long, horrific ride, they slowed the speed of the boat to take back some control, so it took even longer to get to Allan’s Cay - the raincoats provided no protection since the inside of the boat was essentially a bathtub. We were the only boat at Allan’s Cay (we have been here before and it would normally have been packed on a Saturday). When we arrived at their private island, the bartender/caretaker was shocked to see us, stating that no other boat had dared make the trip that day. It was so windy that the animators could not even get the stingrays to come out. The food was great, though, but most of us were still shaking so badly from the trip, with stomachs so upset that we could not enjoy it. It was too windy to swim so everyone kind of hung on the sand trying to warm up and dry up before the treacherous journey back. When it was time to go, everyone lined up a half hour early, each hoping to secure the seats in the middle of the boat which had a bit more cover. On the journey back everyone wore with the raincoats and huddled, heads bowed, wishing it would be over already. Also note that the pigs on this island are not the wild natural ones normally found – they are animals kept in a cage and let out for 10 minutes so we could feed them as the poo all over our feet. We regret wasting our day with Powerboat Adventures, a company who (even though they thought they could make it out to the Exumas on such a windy day) clearly had no regard for our need to actually ENJOY the experience.

We were so excited to take this excursion! The boat ride was beautiful and the staff great. All parts of the excursion were incredible: feeding the iguanas, sting Ray's, and pigs. The lunch served was an absolute feast and delicious! The live narrative on how to properly make conch salad was fun to watch and tasty to eat. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would gladly go again! Thank you Powerboat Adventures for this memorable experience on our family vacation.

I did this trip 25 years ago and i love the new 50+ seater. A much smoother ride. Lunch was fabulous and the staff very courteous and helpful. All my friends from Canada and USA loved their tours as I always send them weather permitting as PB never fails to impress.

I took my sister on the powerboat for her birthday and it was AWESOME. I think I enjoyed it more than her LOL. Takio was awesome, the boat ride was to die for, the food was good and the experience was out of this world. The Private Cay was so relaxing and I enjoyed lounging about. The pigs are huge and at first glance scary but it was a joy feeding and petting them. I loved squiggly and swishy the stingrays (mother and baby), The shark feed was dramatic and exciting I even made my own Jaws movie, me starring of course LOL. The Iguanas were amazing also but they were on a separate cay . Overall it was an amazing experience the staff was friendly and engaging from the check- in desk to the guys on the cay. I will definitely do it again with my family, hopefully in September. I am PROUD to be a Bahamian. Team Powerboat!!!!!

Went today on the Powerboat to Exuma where it was much less than expected. The staff were kind but there was no snorkeling which was a surprise; however, more bothersome to many of us the liquor was watered down. Usually, 3 screwdrivers has me buzzed- my one friend, said he had over 6 and didn’t feel a thing. So disappointing for $280 that they would do that…spoke to others on the boat ride back who felt the same way.

One of a kind experience. If you are planning to go to The Bahamas, please put Exuma on your list. Pig feeding, sting rays feeding and the shark show was so much fun. It’s the most amazing experience. The crew are awesome! Powerboat adventure did not disappoint. Its worth the money!

We had an amazing time. The kids loved the hour boat ride to the island. They thought it was great jumping the waves and getting wet. You can sit in the back if you’d like a calmer dryer ride. The short stop at the “iguana island” was great. I’ve never seen more iguanas in my life. The water was beautiful. The pig feeding was fun but I wished they let the pigs hang out for longer. The highlight was feeding the sting ray. Definitely have never done that before. The staff were super friendly and professional. The fish and conch salad were so good. Per my kids it was their favorite day during our stay in the Bahamas.
