We booked this excursion before leaving for a 4 day carnival cruise to the bahamas. My wife and I had Shamie as our personal tour guide for the day. Shamie drove us to the owl hole, which is an inland blue hole, where we climbed down a 30 foot ladder and snorkled. Shamie went into great details regarding how Freeport became an island and how the blue holes were created, Shamie then took us to Lucayan national park where he explained the different eco systems and we hiked to a beautiful beach, We finally went to another beautiful beach and ate lunch.
The tour was a very unique experience for us. Shamie is an expert on history of island, wild life, and he is a certified scuba diver, The blue hole was something most of the tourist visiting Freeport never experienced. Lucayan national park is a must see when visiting Freeport. Also for lunch we had fresh mahi mahi.
I think for anyone who is a certified diver this is a must excursion. As for us, this was a very unique experience and worth the money, I would recommend spending a little extra and also go to the blue hole close to the ocean. Shamie said it was over an hour away and we did not have the time. The only negative was Shamie did get a little too detailed on each species of birds, and other wild life. When we didn't comment right away, he would say should I continue? But overall I though he was a good guy. Definitely book this excursion if you want to see the blue holes of Freeport. Otherwise, I would take the other excursions or go by yourself and spend the day at Lucayan national park.
