“A must!”
Review of Minns Water Sports

Renting a Whaler for a couple of days is definitely a must if one wants to enjoy the best that Exuma has to offer. And Minns delivers. Boats may not all be in great shape, but they are generally maintained well, and the staff and service are great!
We rented a 19' for the three of us for three consecutive days (and moored it just off the beach at Palm Bay Beach Club where we stayed). Couldn't have been better! Hopping on the boat after breakfast for another sun-drenched and relaxing day on the water! As many others have said, it's the only way to explore the many cays, coves and beaches that Elizabeth Harbour has to offer. A big thanks to Minns!

We only rented a boat for one day while Exuma (our last day unfortunately), but I wish we would have had it for more time while we were there. Getting around in a car is great, but you're limited. There's so much to see just in Elizabeth Harbour that renting a boat is a must. We rented a 15 footer, which is their smallest, and had no problems getting around. Everyone at Minn's is friendly and very helpful. They even spent about 20 minutes with us going over a detailed map of the harbour. They showed us some great snorkelign spots that we went to and really enjoyed. I would definitely reccommend renting a boat from these guys!

My wife and I were staying at Sandals Exuma in the last week of January and had pre-booked a whaler from Minns about 2 months in advance. It is the ONLY way to experience the harbor area around George Town ... what others say about Chat n'Cill, Starfish Beach, Shell Beach, Sand Dollar Beach - all true! And Minn's makes it happen with very little fuss and a business-like but friendly demeanor. We returned 3 days later and rented again .... what a blast!

I guess we have become a creature of habit as each time we go to Exuma, we rent from Minns!
The freedom you have to visit all the things to do around Exuma can't be beat. Starfish and Sanddollar Beaches, Chat N Chill, Big D's, Peace and Plenty, Fish Fry, Man o War Cay, Crab Cay, etc; this is the ONLY way to visit these places when YOU want. Ain't nothing better than pulling up to Fish Fry, anchoring the boat and enjoying a fresh grilled lobster at sunset!
They have many sizes of boats to choose from to accomidate what you need and the price is pretty fair. Some of the boats are a little 'rough', but get the job done. They have nice information on thier website including maps and the staff is helpful directing you where to go AND where NOT to go (or try).
Miles of deserted beaches where you won't see anyone all day! Sandbars that your feet will sink into! And wildlife like turtles, dolphines, nurse and lemon sharks and rays to enjoy.
Be sure to book ahead of time and if the weather doesn't work out, return the boat!

If you're in George Town, I highly recommend renting a boat from Minns. Excellent service and the prices are fair. Book ahead by calling or faxing your reservation as we were disappointed we had to wait a few days for our boat. There are several areas to see, beaches, snorkling, sites, islands and a great way to have some freedom while on vacation. We packed a cooler (brought from home) with some cocktails, snacks and lunch during our days on the boat. There are places to stop and have lunch and so much to see!
