Had a great time on our excursion; fed the pigs on No Name Cay and the Rays on Manjack Cay. Great captain and crew (can't remember their names). Nice to get out on the water in a smaller boat without the draft constraints of our sailboat.

We went sailing with Brendan and Maryanne and had fresh made ceviche on the beach that he made. Then we hung out a couple of nights. His wife Mary was so helpful to us at all times.

We stayed on Green Turtle Cay for a week and dove 6 times with Brendal's Dive Center. We also did the kayaking/sea turtle day and the Sunday Island Hopping tour. Everything we did was amazing. The dive sites were great, the water was clear, the staff was fantastic. I would definitely make a trip back here again. Brendal and his... More

We went to see the swimming pigs one day. They weren't swimming but it was fun nonetheless. Next we went snorkelling, feeding rays and experienced Brendal's cuisine. This is not to be missed. Freshly caught lobster and grouper cooked on a fire on an island with herbs and salad from Brendal's garden. This is tropical gastronomy! The rum punch is... More

I booked a snorkeling tour at Brendal's for my wife, myself, and our two teenagers. We were actually staying at the Bahama Beach Club, which is on a nearby island. The morning of our tour Brendal came over in his boat and picked us up at the ferry dock. It was a short ride across the channel to Green Turtle... More

I booked a fishing trip with Brendal other then a few new rods, reels and lures the newly acquired boat is not set up for fishing. The newly appointed captain Jason was very nice and cordial. How ever even though the boat had twin large E-Tec engines and could go very fast we had to wait for the other fishing... More

Thank you for acknowledging the vessel is a nice boat. The vessel has a GPS and is available anytime the captains feel they need it for their day. Now Capt Jason is born and raised on Green Turtle Cay and knows the water here like the back of his hand and did not need want a GPS as it is... More

Brendal's Dive Center is a rock star type of place. On the wall of the set up center is a list of the many celebrities and notables who have gone out with Brendan, the place's charismatic namesake. Our family of four joined about 14 others on a well equipped catamaran power boat (40'?). There were also five other crew members... More

On the very rare chance of less than perfect weather in the Bahamas, trust Brendal's to make an all day excursion perfect. Brendal's had wetsuits and snorkel gear for a very minimal rental fee so we were glad we left our own gear at home. The weather was a bit cloudy and cool to start our snorkel experience, but our...
