We got off our adventure earlier today. It was fantastic - Sam was our captain for the day. He picked us up a little late do to issues but immediately gave us the agenda and started being our tour guide explaining the history. This is a great family business. We were able to see many fish and the turtle bay area was awesome too. Didn't find any sand dollars but we got to hold and release a starfish. We would recommend their services to anyone looking for a great family excursion. A+

Captain Sam and his cocaptian Tyler were awesome! They were fun, knowledgeable, and entertaining. My family of 17 persons fit perfectly on the boat. We got a tour of the island, swam with turtles, stopped at a private beach for amazing picture opportunities during the sunset, listened to great music and enjoyed the ride. Next time we are in the Bahamas we will definitely take another trip with Captain Sam! I highly, highly recommend this company and the crew! Thanks for a wonderful time for my family and I!

My husband and I took a boat ride through bay adventures and Capt Sam was our guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable and super friendly! We had the best time and would highly recommend working with this company.

We met Cpt Sam on the beach at Melia, and he sold us on chartering a private boat for our snorkeling excursion. Cpt Timmy was our host/guide/bartender the day of our tour. He navigated the waters and gave us island, water and pirate history. Our first stop was straight across from the hotel to snorkel with turtles and on a beautiful reef filled with colorful tropical fish. From there we ventured over to and through Paradise Island (by Atlantis where all the cruise ships pull in) stopping to grab all of the mixers for better rum punch than the hotel served. The money shot destination was Rose Island which had the BEST water/sand/beach ever. The water looked like it was straight from the tap. The beach was virtually untouched. The sand was soft and pristine - no rocks, no shells...perfect to walk on. We stopped for one more snorkeling adventure and headed back.

Sam and Timmy were both great. Very personable and knowledgeable. We all clicked like old friends. I give them TWO SNORKELS UP!

We just got off our adventure and it was fantastic - Tyler was our captain for the day picked us up on time and immediately gave us the agenda and started being our tour guide explaining the history. This is a great family business and deserves the highest rating. We were able to see many fish and the turtle bay area was incredible to see. I hope to do this again in the future and truly recommend their services to anyone looking for a great family excursion. A+
