We spent an amazing week in Exuma and were constantly wowed by the natural beauty and friendly local hospitality. There were so many highlights during our visit but our day spent on the boat with Aquaquest was our favorite! Captain Alton and crew were kind and made sure we were all comfortable and happy. Our full day boat excursion included stops to see star fish, a sunken piano, iguanas, swimming pigs, plane wrecks, sea turtles, amazing sand bars, thunderball grotto, nurse sharks, an excellent lunch at Staniel Cay Yacht Club. Anton made us comfortable providing plenty drinks and snacks. I would highly recommend Aquaquest if you are visiting Great Exuma! You won't regret it!

This is the worst rating I have given a company in my few years of writing a review. Our experience was so different from what other people had experienced. We joined a full day tour, first we were told we will get picked up at our hotel by 830am but they finally came at about 10ish, then we have to wait at the dock for the boat, we left at 11am for a full day tour, the sights we saw were wonderful but the boat broke down twice and the captain was flirting with a hotel representative the whole day in front of all of us ( we didn't have to see that since we were told he is married) , we finally got back at almost 8pm, it was dark and scary being on the ocean that late.

We spent an amazing week in Exuma and were repeatedly overwhelmed with the natural beauty and amazing local hospitality. There were many highlights of our visit but our two days spent with Aquaquest may have been the best of all. We spent an entire day doing an island hopping tour and then did another day fishing and snorkeling. We would recommend both experiences to anyone looking to have the time of their lives. When we return to Exuma I would imagine spending even more time with them. Captain Alton, first mate Axel (AJ) and Brian could not have been more kind and welcoming. We traveled with our 9 year old son and I would imagine he counts them among his best friends now.
Our full day boat tour included stops at many snorkel sights, star fish hunting, sunken mermaids, iguanas, swimming pigs, plane wrecks, sea turtles, sand bars, thunderball grotto, nurse sharks, an amazing lunch at Staniel Cay Yacht Club, unbelievably gorgeous surroundings and amazing hospitality. The boat was well equipped, expertly captained, comfortable and full of drinks and snacks.
An amazing fishing trip was highlighted by a barracuda, diving for conchs, a blue marlin hook up and an massive after trip conch feast. Once again we had a great vessel well prepared for fishing and an amazing local expertise at the helm.
The water around the Exumas is breathtaking and extremely difficult to navigate. We are life long boaters and I was very happy to have Alton at the helm. He and Axel did an amazing job covering a lot of territory expertly and safely. Both possessed a ton of knowledge and provided a wealth of information. I would not miss this if you are traveling to Exuma.
Thank you for an unbelievably amazing experience!

Aquaquest Escapes - let me just start by saying that we're now thinking of acquiring a piece of paradise because of Brian and Anton - owners of Aquaquest. What an amazing experience we had! We (mostly my husband) wanted to do a tour of the famous sandbars in Exuma. However, the touring company at our resort quoted us what seemed like an 'arm and a leg' for a few hours on a private boat. Another resort guest ( aka: our friends) spoke very highly of an independent touring company: Aquaquest Escapes, and since their price was significantly lower and they seemed very experienced, we took a chance and booked our excursion with them. Man, was that a good call.

These guys were such professionals, they were meant for this! We got to see Exuma through their eyes. Truly an incredible experience! They went above and beyond in making sure that what started out as a rainy, drewery day was the highlight of our trip. They were determined for us to have the entire "boating" experience, even though we booked/paid for the sandbars excursion ONLY.
It was an incredible day -- we picked/ate coco- plums on the side of the road; saw sea turtles, dolphins, a starfish and picnicked on the actual sandbar. Freakin awesome! They even took time out of their schedules to dine with us so we could try the local cuisine. Totally worth it! We walked away feeling satisfied and grateful that we took a chance on Aquaquest. Grateful that we didnt book this via our hotel. And grateful that it didn't cost us an arm and a leg.

Btw, the boat was well kept and dare I say it... VERY FANCY! The Captian, Anton, knows his way on the water and we never once felt unsafe even on rough waves.
Brian -- lets just say - the man! He's the "captain" on land. If you're looking for information about the Island -- this is your guy!

Aquaquest -- YOU ROCK! Thanks for the experience of a lifetime! Now, i need to get my boating license! Looking forward to our next trip!

Nelli,

Thank you, thank you!

Captain Anton & Brian would said they loved every minute they spent with you, from the marine to land-life, it was an awesome experience!

Ensuring that each and every person on-board Aquaquest Escapes has an amazing time is our primary objective; this trait is embedded in us, we can't shake it off..we won't shake it off, this is what we do it...

Our aim is that, by the end of the day, we would have turned Customers into life-long friends not only by caring but also by sharing our little Island's Culture and activities with you.

Thank you for entrusting some of your vacation time with us.

We appreciate your feedback and look forward to seeing you again!
