“Best experience ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

Our group rented the boat for 4 hours, but were having such a wonderful time, we stayed another hour! We met capt. Danny near the cruise ship where he was waiting for us. The boat was very clean and comfortable. He took us out to two coral reefs to snorkel. Then he took us to a beautiful beach where we were the only people. We were able to swim out a short distance to where the reef was. We had two teenage girls with us who want to tube. They really had fun...... Then we went over to get fresh conch from his friends. A boat ride around all of the famous houses on the island was next. We were able to see Oprah's , Tiger Woods, Chuck Norris and Eddie Murphy's homes. Danny kept telling us we were on vacation and he would do what ever we wanted to do! He had cold drinks and beach towels too! We all had a great experience and I would highly recommend this tour.

“Bahama's Finest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

Booked this excursion solely based on Trip Advisors review. Wanted to do
something that day that involved our family of six adults exclusively. We
arrived via cruise ship and made the short walk to the wharf where we met up
with Captain Carl and his shiny boat. From the time we were introduced until the
time we got off the boat, Captain Carl treated us like family. The weather that
day was beautiful, and the surf was flat. We suggested that we would like to
skip the harbor tour and get to the snorkeling, beach and fishing as soon as
possible. Captain Carl was very flexible and understood our needs. Our first
stop was a reef where we anchored and donned the snorkel gear that was provided.
The reef was beautiful, with coral and a variety of fish. Next stop was Rose
Island. Captain Carl pulled the boat very close to the beach and anchored there.
There was not a soul on this beach and the water was crystal clear. Another reef
nearby was "the coolest reef I've ever snorkeled", according to my son. Next
stop, fishing. Captain Carl made sure we had baited poles at all times. We
caught so many fish, I lost count. Such a variety, too. Our time was almost up
and Captain Carl asked us if we would like to go to a local spot for conch
salad. He pulled up to a local restaurant that served us the best conch fritters
and salads we had ever had.
This was an experience that we will never forget. It may cost more than other
cruise ship excursions, but it was totally worth it! We will definitely return.
Thanks for an excellent time Captain Carl! " I gotta guy....."

“Best Part of Our Trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Special thanks to Capt. Carl for an excellent half-day adventure on the beautiful bahamian waters. His boat was immaculate and certainly what we were hoping for. Capt. Carl was very knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. Our half day tour consisted of some background/history of the Nassau/Paradise Island as well as some excellent snorkeling and beautiful, completely private beaches. It certainly was the highlight of our stay.

“Best Time in Nassau!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

We booked a 4 hour trip and I could not have been more pleased. The ship was late arriving and when we got to the boat, Capt. Danny was waiting. Danny showed us where we could purchase some adult beverages and then we were on our way. The boat was very well kept up, clean, and with music blasting and Capt. Danny dancing we were on our way. We skipped the harbor tour and stopped for some great snorkeling. The whole time, Capt. Danny made sure everyone had everything they needed and was very accommodating. We then went to Sandy Cay aka Gilligans Island for some private beach time. The whole trip was the best excursion we have ever taken form a cruise ship. The booking was easy and we are already looking forward to our next trip!!
