Captain James is the BEST!! We were fortunate enough to spend two day with James fishing, feeding the turtles, playing with the pigs, sightseeing and more fishing! It's hard to pick a favorite, since we loved doing EVERYTHING! If you want the most memorable chance of a lifetime experience, then Bahamas Ocean Safaris is for you. James knows everything about Spanish Wells and the Bahamas. We learned so many interesting facts and stories from Him. Thank you for the wonderful experience and great conversations. My husband and I had the best time. We will be back!

James is the man! He took our large group (14 people) out for a day of adventure. We fished, swam with the turtles, visited the swings. James was born in Eluethra and knows EVERYTHING! He is super easy going and will cater to whatever your group is wanting to do. It was an awesome day and we will be using him again if we ever get back!

What can I say...an absolutely AMAZEBALLS day! James knew exactly where to go and asked us what we wanted to see/do. We were not disappointed. We had the pleasure of a dolphin following the boat and swam and fed the turtles which was just out of this world Captain James was a perfect host Would I go again...in a heartbeat

We had a blast with James today! He certainly knows all the best places to go and took wonderful care of us! We started out at the swings and then moved on to some spear fishing for Grouper and diving for conch and lobster. We are going to eat well tonight!! Definitely recommend spending the day with James, especially for families with older kids who want to snorkel and see all the sights. We ended the day feeding the pigs, chickens and rabbits on their own little island and then heading to Spanish Wells for a wonderful lunch dockside. Thank you James for all the fun!!
