James was great, we spent the day with him spearfishing, feeding his pigs on the island, and exploring some really cool spots. He understands the history of the island really well and can answer almost any questions you have regarding the history of the Bahamas,...More

James Dunnam of Bahamas Ocean Safaris is the real deal. We had the best day of our Eleuthera vacation - by far - with James out on his boat. First, James is a riot. He has a great sense of humor and immediately makes you...More

I booked the trip with Captain James a few weeks before our trip. He called the night before to confirm our meeting time and place. We didn't have a great map of Eleuthera and luckily found Gene's Bay dock with the help of a friendly...More

We weren't sure what to expect as this was our first trip to Spanish Wells and didn't know anyone. We contacted James ahead of our trip and booked a day of "whatever James suggested". What a good choice that turned out to be. We saw...More

This is the best snorkel outing my family has ever been on. We saw 5 dolphins, 3 mantas, a nurse shark and fed a family of island pigs! James is a great guide, and eager to tailor the trip to exactly what you would like...More

Response from James D | Property representative |
Cost is $550 a day and you can book anytime you want
Group of four coming in June. Read great things about your tours. Be interested in seeing if we can afford a day trip snorkeling with you.
