Review of: Sea
We did the sea wildlife safari with Theresa and Charles. From the second we met up with them it felt like we weren’t on a tour but more with friends who were showing us their island. They went far beyond everything we imagined. We have a 6 and 8 year old and they were constantly showing them the amazing nature and animals big and small all throughout the island. We had a downpour of rain right before our barbecue and they just told us to go explore and they would make it happen and boy did they. Charles cooked us fish he fished just the day before that was amazing! They ended it with a hone made carrot cake. I mean wow. We didn’t want it to end. If we ever go back to Long Island the first thing we are doing is booking a tour with them!

Hello Alex’s G! Thank you so much much for your kind remembrance of our day! The rain presented a challenge for sure but once the fire caught it was great to eat a hot meal and to watch the kids enjoy their tent! We have to admit that showing our guests this amazing area is on the top of our everyday list. We love meeting new people and treat everyone as if we’ve known you all of our life!! You have an amazing family and we hope to see you again in the future! Stay safe and thank you again until next time! Charles and Teresa

Review of: Sea
Had a family trip to Long Island with our kids and really made no plans ahead of time. Reached out to Bahamas Discovery Quest and Teresa made a plan for us right away. We've done some other tours in the Bahamas but have never had one so adapted to us. We got to pick our lunch that was made on a private sandbar and both Teresa and Charles were accommodating with the kids. We learned a lot.

Hello MatRdr13, Thank you for remembering us on TripAdvisor. It means a lot to us to receive feedback on your day with Bahamas Discovery Quest. Your dive in to reach the star fish for the family was epic! The current was strong but you made it! Thanks for keeping the sea star below water level. It’s a commitment we have made to keep them safe. You have an amazing family! We hope you return as the kids get older so they can experience more of what Long Island has to offer! Wishing you all the best! Charles and Teresa

Review of: Sea
We spent two wonderful days touring with Charles and Teresa and they were the highlights of our trip. If you are going to Long Island do yourself a favor and book with them. You will of regret it! We first did a land tour and they totally accommodated our young children and were flexible with the timing when our middle son got sick at the start of our vacation. Teresa was even so kind as to make a homemade chicken dumpling soup for him. So sweet and thoughtful. We learned and laughed so much! We also did a sea safari which exceeded all expectations! We saw so much sea life, it was incredible. They also found the most amazing secluded beaches for lunch both days. The food and the location were spectacular! We treasure the memories we made with our time with Charles and Teresa. Thank you for all you did to make our time together special. You both are true gems!

Hello AEG! Thank you so much for the great review! We enjoyed it thoroughly. The boy’s surprised faces every time something exciting or new happened was well worth every minute! To watch them run, enjoy and manage the walk on the flats and even the Shrimp Hole Trail was a sign they are true adventurers! Thank you for choosing us and for the great time we all had! We look forward to seeing you all again. The boys still have snorkeling, crabbing and fishing to get down to become true Long Islanders! Take care and all the best, Charles and Teresa

Review of: Sea
Teresa and Charles were kind and amazing hosts for an experience of a lifetime. We spent a full day with them on their boat fishing and wildlife watching; tons of turtles, rays, sharks, conch, starfish and fish. They brought us to an isolated island to cook us a wonderful curry over an open fire. Charles and Teresa are so knowledgeable about the island, its wildlife, and history; they themselves are long-term residents and have an active farm of pineapple and other vegetables that they gave us a wonderful tour of. Such a perfect balance of beautiful landscape, seascape, and wildlife. We had a unique and memorable experience sharing time with Charles and Teresa, learning about both historical and current life on beautiful Long Island. Highly recommended!

Hello Curiosity! Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We were so happy you braved the trip to Long Island! You definitely proved that it's a process that can be navigated safely and great vacations are definitely worth the trip to our small island! What a beautiful day we had! The turtles and sting ray were so active! But I have to say the fishing was something! The sharks eating our catch and straightening our hooks was the challenge of the day! Being consistent and pulling faster than them did give us a days catch! I don't give up easy!! As a reminder, the pineapple will be ready the first of June and continue through July! There are some with your name on them! Thank you so much for going out with us! We enjoyed the day and meeting new friends. We hope you return to Long Island soon! Take care and all the best! Charles and Teresa

Review of: Sea
Our family's day out with Charles and Teresa was by far our best day in the Bahamas! The wonderful service this couple provides began with excellent communication via email from Teresa in the lead up to our tour. Because of a weather front expected to come in on our originally planned day, Charles changed the date so that we could have the best experience possible, and we were so glad he did! We had a great time looking for conch out in the flats, and Charles and Teresa presented us with three of them, beautifully cleaned and polished, before we left the island. The cook out was amazing-both the scenery and the cuisine! We had the fish fingers lunch, with the fish being caught by Charles the day before our trip. The sandbars on the island we stopped at were also some of the prettiest we have seen in the Bahamas. We also took the ride over to Sandy Cay to see the iguanas. They all ran out to greet us as we pulled up, which my kids loved. That area has some of the purest blues and whites you can imagine-absolutely breathtaking sandbars! We had wanted to do some snorkeling, however, the visibility was poor. So instead we did some reef fishing. My teens had so much fun fishing with the yo-yo's, they would throw them in and pull out a fish within a minute! As a word of warning, my two youngest (7 and 13 years old) did get a bit sea sick during that part because the boat was stopped and the waves were rocking us a bit. So if you are prone to motion sickness, I would recommend taking something before the fishing portion of the day. The day that my family spent with Charles and Teresa was outstanding, and we are still talking about it many months later. My husband and I are returning to Long Island this summer and have already booked another day out with Charles and Teresa. They, and all the people of Long Island truly treat you like family. Book your adventure with them, you won't regret it!

Hello Out Island Addict! I apologize for the late response! Somehow your review was missed for a reply but your visit was very memorable! I think the most vivid part of our trip was the kids gradual change of moving from urban life to sea life! It's amazing to see the natural smiles and relaxed expressions that come with the sun, the sound of the waves and the activity of the sea wildlife itself. We do hope that after these crazy times end you will consider returning to Long Island to enjoy soaking up more sun, sea and wonderful times! Thank you for the incredible review. It means so much to us. All the best and we hope to see you again soon. Charles and Teresa
