I found Blue Hole on cruise boards and then decided to book them after reading all the positive reviews on Trip Advisor....and they were all RIGHT!! Everything was near perfect...from the quick email correspondence with Kathy to the directions to the meeting place near Senor Frogs to the 2 hour boat snorkeling tour with Mark! In our group, there were only 6 of us (4 in our group plus another couple)...this was PERFECT compared to full boats we saw getting on right next to us :) Mark was a delightful captain the entire time...making sure we were well taken care of, answering all of our questions and taking us to 2 wonderfully unique diving spots! We highly enjoyed our 2 hour snorkeling trip with Blue Hole, and if we are ever back in Nassau would love to join them for another excursion.

Basil took us on what ended up being a private tour[no one else booked] of 2 of the most beautiful snorkeling sites we had ever been to! Clear blue water, lots of colorful fish and corals. Basil was a great guide. Very helpful and knowledgeable. Overall, highly recommend this tour!

Had an amazingly awesome excursion with Blue Hole and Basil and Kathy on Friday January 17th. I arrived on the Equinox and met them at 9:15 am near Senor Frogs. It was a longer walk than I had anticipated as we were docked furthest away from the welcome center but got there just on time. Took me 20 minutes. Weather had been iffy and Kathy first emailed at 6:12 am that they would have to cancel but further scrutiny of the forecast with back and forth emails and no concern by me if bumpy on way back they agreed to go out. Glad we did as very calm seas and perfect snorkeling. We were only boat at first reef with lots of beautiful fish - schools and saw a barracuda and Basil directed me to a nice elkhorn coral formation. Second stop two other boats were there but left shortly and once again only one at that very nice reef with lovely coral. It was a good size and lots of fish there too. Saw a large crab! Great variety of fish at both stops. Very clear water first stop, slightly cloudy second at edge of reef but fine over reef. Kathy is a great communicator. She also kindly helped me get some of my bangs out of my mask before the second snorkel that was keeping it from sealing well. She asked when I booked what size shoe I wore and they had the fins ready - I brought my own mask/snorkel. I was offered a free bottle of water. Basil pointed out area highlights on the travel out and back and took us in for a close look at the Atlantis Resort on the return. I am so happy I booked with them and it was the highlight of my vacation! Thank you Kathy and Basil!

This is an amazing family business who really cares about providing an exceptional snorkleling experience! Prompt email communication with Kathy, willing to answer all questions, easy booking, easy to walk to meeting spot in port by Senior Frogs. Mark was our captain for the 2 hr morning snorkel. He is an excellent boat driver. Our family consisted of 4 adults and 2 children. This experience was perfect for the first time snorklers in the group. It was so clear like snorkleling in an aquarium. Definitely a highlight of our cruise. Can't wait to come back and do the 4 hr snorkleling trip Blue Hole offers. You will not regret booking with Kathy, Basil & Mark 👍

I simply can not say enough good things about Blue Hole and Basil. I called and booked a fishing/snorkel trip with him for the 5 of us (3 teenage boys, wife, & myself) and got an email confirmation right away. Unfortunately, I didn't read it correctly & we showed up the next day instead of the following day. I called Basil and he told me our reservation was for the following day but he still came & tried to make it all happen. That didn't work out so he actually drove us back to our condo himself...joyfully telling us about himself and the island. We did meet the next day and we had a blast fishing for some smaller fish off the bottom about 20 feet down. After catching several different kinds of fish we moved into a little deeper water and caught some more. My last fish seemed a little bigger at first and then started pulling out a lot of line...now I know it's a big something! It took about 10 minutes to finally get it to the surface & see that its a 3 1/2 foot baracuda. I couldn't believe it, what a shock! Basil was just as excited as we were. He told me how to bring it in close to the boat where he used the only net we had with us (way too small for this fish & actually broke) and put it over it's head, leaned over, and put his arm under its body and pulled it up into the boat. His excitement was just awesome and in part because we had no leader, where using 8lb braided line, and a small hook. After getting things squared away, we then made 2 snorkel stops which were really great...such clear water and so much sea life to explore. We were never rushed and it was just the 5 of us plus Basil, who is genuinely one of the best people you'd ever meet. I will use Blue Hole every time we are visiting & are looking to snorkel or fish. Thanks again Basil...and sorry about your net!
