Our trip began with Capt. Dennis picking us up at our Calabash bay cottage. He promptly hoisted our 3 yr old son into the air, and the fun was on. After about an hour ride we arrived at the "white sand beach" which was exactly as advertised. 2 miles of deserted white sand along the bluest water Ive ever seen. We swam and played in the water while Dennis, known also as Shabba cooked our lunch, fresh fish on the open air grill, lobster stew, rice and peas and pasta salad. Not just one of the best meals in Jamaica, but anywhere! His mate Jace is a terrific companion for Nico as well, and we swam some more and built sand castles before heading back. on the way we saw Dolphins, fish and a turtle and Shabba shared his knowledge about the environment and coastline. A great day in an amazing setting.

What a memorable time with Captain Dennis, a caring professional and very knowledgable about the ecology & sustainability of the southshore of Jamaica. My nephew and myself experienced a rewarding adventure on the sea looking atthe Dolphins, Sea Turtles & Nurse Sharks. His co-pilot Lenroy was great fun also. What a blast we had and look forward to another adventure soon on the horizon. Loved the Natural Mystic boat, felt right at home and cannot recommend Captain Dennis Adventures enough.

We had a fantastic day with Captain Dennis. He showed us all the nice spots in the Black River Swamp (lots of crocs!) and brought us to a secluded place where the 4 teenagers in the family could swim and jump from a tree in the river. Dennis is very involved in the local community and very informative about what he shows you. But first of all he really does its best to please his customers. On the way back it started raining and we were quite cold. Captain Dennis started a sea water fight on the boat, which kept the kids amused and warm. Really nice!

Our day out with Captain Dennis and Jace was one of the real highlights of our trip to Jamaica. We drove down from Negril to Jack Spratts beach (not a drive for the faint hearted!), where Dennis and his lovely boat were waiting for us. We started off with a ride down the coast through impossibly turquoise waters, past the Pelican Bar to the Black River. On the mangrove-lined river we saw several crocs and plenty of egrits. We then stopped at a safe spot for refreshments and a swim, while our sons jumped in the river from ropes with the local kids and Dennis took lots of pictures for us.

On the way back we stopped off at the cool Pelican Bar in the sea, where there were drinks and local crafts for sale while the local residents played dominos or dozed in hammocks.

Unfortunately we saw no dolphins at sea, but we did get some great photos of the frigates and pelicans. We had an exhilarating ride back through the waves and ended up having a delicious and great value lunch at Jack Spratts, recommended by Dennis.

Captain Dennis and Jace were friendly and professional throughout, and the trip was reasonably priced at US$180 for the four of us. I would highly recommend it if you want a more personalised and authentic experience than those offered by the commercial river boats.

We hired Captain Dennis to take us out to the Pelican Bar. He went out of his way to bring us to a school of dolphins on the way out to make sure we got the full experience. On the way home, the waves were very rough, but he was an obvious pro and made the ride fun and enjoyable. This guy puts importance on his customers and reputation, and it shows!
