First, I was a bit nervous about taking a jeep ride all the way from Freeport to McLean's Town since one of my kids has extreme motion sickness. So I called them up and they told me that we could drive ourselves to McLean's if that was easier - and they agreed to a reduced price since they didn't have to provide our transportation.

They took us out in a boat and pointed out underwater caves, told us the history of the island and pulled up shells and starfish for us to hold. They had 2 fishing rods and asked if we'd like to fish at all before heading to the one of the cays for kayaking. We opted out of the fishing, but they were great at finding fish, sting rays and even a small shark for us to view (and they turned the boat around and followed the shark until everyone had a chance to see it).

After a 10 minute boat ride (on perfectly calm water that didn't bother my normally seasick kid), we landed and grabbed the kayaks. Kayaking thru the mangroves was so relaxing and beautiful. Our guide pointed out a lot of fish and plant life. When we finished kayaking, the kids were given time to go swimming on the beach. Then we jumped back in the boat and went to a native village on the other side of the cay for lunch. The plan was for a lobster meal, but when they found out that 4/5 of us don't eat seafood, they changed plans and gave us 1 lobster dinner and 4 fried chicken dinners with rice and potato salad (VERY good!).

After eating, we took a 2 minute boat ride and a 5 minute walk to get to Turtle Park - an interior pond that was home to several species of turtles. Our guides had brought the leftovers from lunch to entice the turtles over to us. We saw 6 really big turtles (3 difference species) before hopping back in the boat to go home.

We ended up spending almost 4 hours on this tour not including the time to drive out & back (and it could have been longer if we had decided to do fishing or snorkeling with them which they offered). We were never rushed and were encouraged to take as much time as we wanted with all the sites. The guides were great and the views were amazing.

This was my first trip to Grand Bahama Island with my boyfriend. We were on a Carnival cruise and they worked so well with getting us from the port. The drive was wonderful and Brice made the hour long drive feel really short with fun facts and guessing games. Brice took us to Sweeting's Cay to see the turtle park and it was magnificent. We were greeted by several turtles and got some awesome photos. We then went to get our kayaks and Brice toured us around the area for 30 - 45 minutes. This was most definitely the highlight of our trip. Best guide, best company, and overall 5 star experience!

We booked an excursion to kayak sea turtle park and our tour guide Brice was AWESOME!! We had a blast! The fact that Brice was our tour guide just made our day that much better!! He picked us up and drove us to the East side of the island where we took a boat out to the small islands of the Bahamas! We hopped out of the boat and picked up giant starfish, took a boat ride over sharks, kayaked over sting rays, walked on the sandbars and collected sand dollars, and even got to take selfies with the sea turtles! Our day was beyond AMAZING! Brice was so knowledgeable, professional and friendly and our one-on-one experience was an unforgettable one! He even went out of his way to stop at Ben's caves because he knew we really, really wanted to see them before we left - and that wasn't even part of our excursion! I highly recommend anyone going to visit the Bahamas to call Brice and book an excursion with him! He was fabulous and every time I come to the Bahamas I plan on booking directly with him from here on out!!

Ok it started as "its $14 to go to the beach" but that's both ways. Ok I think, we have a party of 10 so I'm in, and its $5 per person to get access to the beach. I'm like ok well that's a bit steep, but was told they had a bunch of water toys in the ocean and wifi was included in the cost, bathrooms, showers all included. Ok, so I'm in for that, we get there and the 5 goes to 5.75 "with tax"..... I'm feeling a bit abused at this point. The lady at the entrance does tell us that we can rent 2 chairs and an umbrella for $15. We walk towards the beach only to crest the hill and see 6 feet of seaweed on the beach and 25 ft of seaweed in the ocean. AND the waves were 3 to 4 ft, on any beach I have ever been on it would have been a red flag day. We went to some open chairs and were told that they didn't have any umbrellas left, I asked for a discount because of the lack of umbrellas, "no that's what it is umbrellas or not" oh and the 15 well its not actually 15 it's $17 "with tax man", "12% tax man"..... I almost lost it, I was furious.... I had to walk down the beach so I didn't scream, cuss or create some ridiculous scene and get thrown in a Bohemian jail.... oh ya and the taxi/van that dropped us off let us know that once we got there they would supply a return trip every hour on the hour. We showed up at about 10:50 and by 11:05 we were ready to leave, sadly we were stuck there till noon. If Marty Moose was there I would have punched him in the nose!!! My biggest frustration was that the taxi driver knew those beach conditions, as well as the lady that charged us to enter the beach, no one said a word about the seaweed, or that the ocean was too rough to go out and play on the included toys....ect. Before you go to this beach do some research and make sure its not filled with seaweed. We did not book this trip through the cruiseline, we did it on our own so buyer beware. OK final note, the open air bar there is nice, reasonable beer prices, tasty drinks.

Hello Readers. When you book the beach transfer we do not know what the weather or seas will be like the day you arrive, we are providing transportation to and from the destination you booked to go, we do not give recommendations or suggestions on where you should go when you get on the bus, van, or taxi when you arrive, no matter where you go on island it is safe, when the transfer numbers are small we ask the guest when they reach the location what time would they like to be transferred back to the ship so that we don’t have the vehicle sitting there for several hours with nothing to do. We do not try to deter you from going where you booked.

What a great day! We have been fortunate enough to snorkel and dive in many great spots, but Sweeting’s Cay is in a class all it’s own! The drift snorkel and blue holes were magnificent! The abundance of coral and sea life was breathtaking. After the snorkeling I told Brice “I saw everything but sharks” but then low and behold we had a lunch on lovely beach and were joined by several passing sharks 🦈 ! We loved it! Brice’s trip to Sweeting’s Cay was the highlight of a great week spent on Grand Bahama. I highly recommend the tour and driving services he offers- you can’t go wrong- I will definitely be back and Brice will be my go to guy!
P.s Brice, you do need to up your music game- add a decent sound system to both the boat and the van - I don’t think Hailey enjoyed my singing 😂😂😂

This trip was a definite highlight of visiting Grand Bahama Island. I had heard a lot about the different ecosystems, flora, and fauna out on the island's East End, and had heard wonderful things about Sweeting's Cay, so we decided on the kayak excursion to be able to see the mangroves. Our guide for the kayaking and motor boat travel went out of his way to identify different species, take us up close to different animals, and show us all the unique things about Sweetings Cay both on land and in the water. We came within a few feet of giant stingrays, sharks, underwater caves, and many different types of fish, and we were able to be right in the water with starfish and a small octopus. Everyone involved was friendly, knowledgeable, and made sure we got as much out of the trip as we possibly could. The landscape is absolutely breathtaking, and I'm still blown away by how much wildlife we saw. (Booking was easy too - we called, they booked us on a trip for the very next day, and we paid in cash at the end of the tour.) Highly recommend!

LOVED Fran`s service. I feel like we underpaid for this tour (and I never say that). We had Aisha as our tour guide and she was very sweet and knowledgeable. They exceeded our expectation and I highly recommend them. Their tour was much cheaper than the cruise lines rates too. 5 Stars from me!

Starfish under crystal clear water, eagle rays swimming in the ocean, remote islands with mangroves. This was the highlight of the trip. Takes a while to get out to MacCleans Town but worth seeing the east side of the island. It has better sea life and is farther from the cruise docks.

Brice provides a great and relaxing experience at Sweetings Cay. We liked it so much we asked them to take us to Peterson's Cay and they drove us to the airport when we had to head home.

For this trip, we kayaked, ate fresh coconut just off the tree that they cut up for us, saw the turtles, and ate delicious food (chicken, lobster, or fish) at a local restaurant right on the water. Our driver, Uncle, is a true extrovert and made the somewhat long drive out to the boat launch (we had a drive to the boat to the Cay) very fun and had us singing and laughing on the way out. Out at Sweetings Cay, the water is very calm and so kayaking is quite easy and relaxing. The water is as clear as everywhere else in GBI, so if photos are your thing you'll have many opportunities. Brice also has a nice mix of being very prompt, yet he never seemed in a hurry and went at our pace.
