First off, Captain Dennis is one of the most lovely people you will ever meet and a master of the sea. You will be in expert hands with Dennis and his crew. We have done four trips with Dennis...all of them unforgettable. From Frenchman's Bay in Treasure Beach you head 12 miles along the coast to the town of Black River, then up the mangrove tree and crocodile lined river to the amazing Rudy's bar for some swimming and Red Stripes. On the way back down river you can stop at Sister Lou's for another Red Stripe and some of her amazing crab. Back in the sea you have to stop at the Pelican Bar to hang out with the rastas and have more Red Stripes of course. You can also book one of Dennis's incredible beach cookouts at his private beach. An amazing meal of crab, grilled lobster, creole lobster, rice & peas, fresh pineapple cole slaw and all of the rum drinks and Red Stripes you want. Dennis and his crew create one of the best meals you will have...ever. This is something to not just think about...you just need to do it. It will be unforgettable.

This was our fourth trip out with Dennis, who we now consider to be family. An amazing trip up the Black River followed by the most amazing lunch (the crab!) at Dennis's spot. Not only is Dennis an amazing chef, he's also an incredible captain managing some 10ft waves back into Calabash Bay. Did I mention he also taught me how to dance to reggae? Highly Recommended. One Love.

First of all THANK YOU CAPTAIN DENNIS-SHABA, which is the best soul that we met in Treasure Beach. He came to bring us with his 4x4 at home and we took his fisherman boat called « Captain Dennis word is LOVE » and it’s so true, this Captain know the sea, love and cherish the sea and it’s very beautiful to see how he is just ONE with the Sea. The second of Captain Shaba, called Dante it’s also with him and help him all day long from the Pelican Bar to the magical small island where he will cook you seafood and Jamaican dishes. Everything was wonderful we spend the day in this beach and enjoy the nature with good energies around. The must was the dolphins that we saw in the sea, such an emotional moment. Thanks thanks thanks Captain, we will never forget this moment. Everyone need to do this tour cause it’s all about love and sharing, nothing else. Carole from Switzerland

We did the Black River tour and Pelican Bar with Captain Dennis' other boat driven by Sherwin and Dante. Dennis was nearby, driving another group, and we enjoyed chatting with him at stops. They were all very pleasant and competent. We enjoyed seeing the crocodiles and egrets in the Black River, swinging from the rope swing at Rudy's Jungle Bar, crab snacks at Sister Lou's , patties from some place in Black River, then cold Red Stripes at the famous Pelican Bar. We also saw a family of dolphins on the way there. We'll do another tour with Captain Dennis next time for sure!

Myself and my family did a full day with Dennis and his crew in mid February. Dennis picked us up from our rental property and took us to his boat where his crew was waiting on time. It was easily the highlight of our trip, and would highly recommend it to anyone staying in Treasure beach, or anywhere in the close area. Dennis has been doing this for over two decades, and truly cares about his clients, and the community around him. They've perfected everything, and can cater to whatever it is you need. By the end of the day, my family had felt we had made friends, and he helped us throughout the rest of our stay. The trip to Black River, and Rudy's was a great departure. You get to go up river, past the normal boat tours, and then use a rope swing at a local bar. From there you're taken to the Pelican bar, which although a bit touristy is an experience if unique. You can stay as long as you'd like, and get some snacks / drinks while meeting the others who have ventured. After the Pelican bar, you're taken to a calm slice of private beach where you can walk miles alone amongst the beautiful landscape. All the while, Dennis and his crew has been making you lunch so you can eat his delicious food whenever you please. Dennis doesn't work for one of the hotels or any particular villa, so his service is based on the customers - and you can really tell that. I hope to return and see him again one day. Reach out to Dennis via email, he will respond promptly and help set up any of your needs.
