We had an amazing trip with kids age 2 - 11. Brendal’s Dive Shop does a great job making sure everyone has what they need to go snorkeling and feel comfortable. We saw beautiful fish and a wide age range of kids in our group made memories to last a lifetime. After snorkeling we got to have the most delicious lunch while taking in a beautiful beach and feeding rays. Our family has been lucky enough to go on trips with Brendal’s Dive Shop multiple times and it is always a top notch experience. This is a must do if you visit Green Turtle Cay.

Brendal and Mary are two of the finest people I know and their character shows in their business. From a fun loving afternoon picnic, to an intense reef dive with the black tips and green turtles, it is always a wonderful experience. The staff is there to help you however they can and always with a smile. I have heard the shop is back open and ready for business! Take that Dorian!!!

My husband and I went along with our two teen girls to see the swimming pigs and visit Nippers with Brendal's Dive Center. Kyle drove our boat and his partner took good care of us, offering drinks and helping us feed the pigs. We had a lot of fun and it was an affordably priced outing. Mary did a nice job of managing a large crowd dispersing to a number of boats. I would suggest that Brendal's put more details about each individual outing (what it includes, the timing, the cost etc.) on their website, as we had to email Mary quite often with questions. She did always respond promptly though.

We had a fantastic day with Brendal. His boats are excellent - well equipped and very comfortable even for large groups. We spent an hour on a snorkel adventure in “The Gardens” where we saw beautiful reefs, colorful fish, lobsters and sharks. Then we went to what looked like a private beach where we fed huge (but friendly) stingrays. While we were doing that, Brendal and his team were cooking lunch on an open flame - hogfish and lobster, with delicious bread and salad - one of the best meals we had all week on the island. Even the fish in the Abaco Sea are Brendal fans. He has a great team, too. Mary Ann and RJ were friendly, fun and very helpful all day long. I highly recommend Brendal’s adventures for anyone visiting Green Turtle Cay. You can’t go wrong.
