“Perfect!!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We chartered Neville and his boat for a half day for a second time. Neville took my husband and I out for a wonderful laid back tour of Elizabeth Harbour. I was able to snorkel in two locations at my leisure. No one else's agenda here. Just tell Neville what you want to do...and he will deliver. We love to amble around the Harbour as my husband gets seasick...but I am an avid snorkler...and Neville keeps us both happy. First a quick snorkel in an undergound cave filled with colourful fish then a great reef snorkel at Fowl Cay all by myself..tons of fish and two friendly sea turtles to interct with. Neville points out all the local sights as we tour around, then a stop at Chat and Chill for a fresh conch burger and beer are a must. Sure its slow service but it has lots of people watching and paraphenalia to gawk at.....who needs to be in a hurry?? We will return and most definitely book Neville again...best part of our stay on Exuma!!( Great value compared to Sandals excursion prices!! And we didn't have to be part of a 20 person group!!)

“Enjoy the beauty of Exuma”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

If you have never been to Exuma, an easy way to get the feel not only of the beauty, but of what life is like on the Island, is to spend 1/2 day with Lindsay and Neville. They have lived on Exuma for over 5 years, and really know what to do and what to see. We went with two families of four. They took us to two beautiful places to snorkel, and on a hike.
The only downer was Chat N Chill..... a very mediocre tourist trap with lousy food, a very long wait, and too many flies.
However, you will really love Neville and Lindsay.

“Great way to spend the day”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We were two couples traveling with our grown children. Neville and Lindsay planned out a great day for us. We started with a quick jaunt up to the salt beacon on Hamburger Island where Lindsay gave us some good background on the Exumas. From there we proceeded to a great snorkeling spot and then on to Stocking Island to Chat n Chill for a bite to eat. After lunch we cruised to a beautiful sand bar and then we enjoyed a guided snorkeling tour of a reef with Neville. Lindsay and Neville are both wonderful guides and hosts. I am sure they have done this tour a zillion times but they knew it was our first time and they made it a very memorable experience.

“Amazing time!!!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I went on the Starfish Fishing trip with my adult kids, and we all had a great time! Neville and Lyndsay are great people, and they are sure to make your adventure worth it!! Neville is very knowledgable of the waters, and he made sure that we caught some fish - - which was our dinner that evening! Starfish is the one to choose, if you're looking for an expert, and also looking for some fun to go along with it! Thank you to Neville & Lyndsay~~you are great!!!

“Our castaway tour was a blast”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We had a great time on our Castaway tour. Starfish is a small operation, but Neville and Lyndsay do a fabulous job. They set us up with drinks, zero gravity chairs, an umbrella and a phone (for emergencies) and left us to our own devices. We saw a boat or two, but none came close to our private beach and we saw no one over the 5 or so hours we were there. It was great having the beach to ourselves and exploring a bit more of the island. The time flew by and before we knew it we saw the boat on the horizon coming to pick us up. We would definitely recommend the castaway tour and definitely recommend Starfish.
