We took a group of 12 on a jet ski tour with this company and had a fantastic time! It was $150 per jet ski and we all road double. That was by far the cheapest price we could find on jet ski's or wave runners anywhere on the island. The only negative is that is was super hard to find! We knew they were in the straw market, but not one local including our cabi knew where they were so we wondered from place to place based off local's directions for over an hour. When we finally found it we were 20 minutes late.( If you take this tour for jet skiing, they are located facing the main road in small builing just past the straw market.) Once you get there you have to take another short ride down to where the jet ski's are. Our tour guide was great! He showed us star row, where we able to see Oprah's new house, he dove for and brought up starfish. It was beautiful and we all loved it!

While this may be one of Freeport's "newer' tours, it is well worth the price as Tansey (owner and guide) is a true professional -- she uses her humor, experience and educational background to give folks a glimpse of some of GBI's unique flora, fauna and geological oddities.

The tour started out with Tansey picking up folks at the hotels . . . and on the ride to the "launch site" she provided a short narrative on the history of the island which in itself was quite fascinating.

After donning the life jackets and sun glasses and boarding the airboat we stopped at one of several blue holes -- "holes" in the water which drop down 60 or more feet in which fresh water mixes with salt water. Needless to say the mixing of the water and occasional turbulence means these spots are often ideal places to spot various fish.

The tour then quickly skipped over to the mangroves on the North Shore where we were able to see more fish, birds and learn about the importance of mangroves. After landing on a small cay Tansey gave a short nature walk featuring three of the six unique enivrons that can be seen on GBI . . . with a special emphasis on bush medicine.

The four hour tour ended with an authentic Bahamian lunch of BBQ chicken and rice on a deserted, sandy cay.

This tour is excellent if you're looking to do something besides sit on the beach or go shopping . . . it offers a glimpse into an area of the island that is not often seen by outsiders.

This company is only about a year old but it is awesome! The name Bahamas is taken from the Spanish baja mar, meaning low sea, which makes it difficult to navigate the shallow water to view the local flora and fauna. We did consider the kayaking experience offered in Lucayan National Park, but honestly, my fiance and I aren't quite physically suited for that activity. The airboat also was better because we were able to go out into the open water -- we even followed some sharks at high speed!! Tansey, the guide, was very professional and personable, as well as knowledgable about local history and was able to answer all our questions. We had lots of fun and learned a lot too! We also got a Bahamian lunch which was delicious. Note: you WILL get your feet wet, so be sure to wear shoes that can get wet. If the weather had been warmer, I would have gotten in the water when we stopped to eat, but settled for wading in the warm surf. Also bring a windbreaker again the strong wind when the airboat goes fast over the water, and sunglasses to protect your eyes from the wind. Important: there is NO bathroom at the launch site or in fact anywhere during the tour, so be sure to use the facilities at your hotel before you get picked up in the morning. If you don't mind 'communing with nature', be sure to bring some tissue!
