this was our fourth time back to long Island and of course we had the opportunity to spend some time with Charles and Teresa and the kids both on the water and for some family time as well .
I read through some of the reviews you people get from over the years, and some are from us, and you should be very proud of the enjoyment and satisfaction and memories you have instilled into these peoples minds and hearts by sharing with us your part of the world and what means so much to yourselves both on the land and on the water....
Your knowledge and your care for this beautiful gem of the earth leaves us all in awe and we could all take a bit of your life rule book and self respect for the environment home with us and practice it ourselves and make our own lives more caring and our backyards more environmentally friendly for all to share ...
I could go on for hours how much of a difference that Charles and Teresa and Meeko and Reese have made in our lives over the years and we look so forward to our next time we can come to the beautiful island to explore and learn and again spend time with them , but I would suggest to anyone who looks for adventure and enjoys making there own fun and truly enjoys meeting a beautiful knowledgeable family who will leave a foot print on your heart forever ,,,,
Come to long Island and leave your life behind , expect nothing , enjoy everything ,
ask lots of questions , learn so much , explore every beach and highlight the island has to offer, wave to everyone and expect lots of smiles in return , take lots of pictures , watch at least one sunrise and lots of sunsets , eat a conch salad , find out where to get fresh bread , and just soak up the surroundings in every way possible .
Then once your comfortable with all that , get a hold of Charles and Teresa and book a day with them doing something , they have so much to offer and you will not be disappointed in any way ,I promise that ...
I will advise though that an out Island trip may not be for everyone ,,,,,,
You need to be self motivated and adventurous take a few risks .... but I promise you once you have done it once it draws you like a magnet , you can't quit talking about it , showing pictures of it and dreaming about it till your next return ....
And a day with Bahama Discovery Quest will be the icing that tops all .
Again gang thank you for all that you do for us when we come to visit , can't wait till next time , till then be safe , sing loud ,smile lots ....
God bless ....

Hello Chip and Shauna!
Thank you so much for the wonderful things you have said about us!! We really enjoy meeting new people and taking them to see the wonders of Long Island! We cherish our friendship with you and we look forward to your return each year!
Your check off list of "things to enjoy" on Long Island is great! Exploring every beach and the highlights of Long Island, sunrises and sunsets, eat a conch salad, fresh (I mean right from the hook) fish, warm fresh bread, collections of seashells and sea glass and soaking up the distance between where you have been and actually being on Long Island. This same distance holds an amazing small piece of paradise that is so unique, a place to gain knowledge of the surroundings, the culture, the wildlife, realizing that this space of time and place is special... somewhere between yesterday, the kindness of the Long Island people and breath taking natural beauty. Call it your own for a week or perhaps two and carry back with you memories for a lifetime! The fresh taste of the food, the rake and scrape music, the beauty of the sea and all it has to offer. It truly is an unforgettable journey!
We are glad that you have enjoyed all of your time on Long Island! Our steadfast friendship is a jewel in our life! We hope that you will continue to return each year! There is so much more to see and do!
May God bless you richly. Charles and Teresa

Charles and Teresa are simply the Best. The day was one that we as a family will never forget. I cannot express enough how simply amazing the day trip was. Teresa will go out of her way to make the trip exactly what you want it to be. Both of them are so knowledgeable about the island. Our day included Reef and Deep Sea fishing, swimming with the pigs, a cookout on a remote key, pulling my son on a tube, and a nature safari. I feel like we have made friends for life. We will definitely be back next year. Already planning our next Vacation to Long Island!

We had six people and an eight month old baby on our 8 hour tour with Charles and Teresa - and we had an absolute blast. Having visited over 60 countries, I was suspicious of all of the glowing reviews for Charles and Teresa's tours - how could it really be that spectacular? Well, it was absolutely amazing. In order to navigate the shallow waters here you've really got to know your way around. Charles grew up on the island and took us to visit all different parts that we never would have been able to see otherwise. We started off with the sea wildlife tour, where they took us to see the mangroves and then to shallow waters where we could walk around and pick up conch, starfish, and sea cucumbers in the most pristine blue waters imaginable. We then had lunch of fresh fish and coconut tarts (made by Teresa herself!!) before taking off for some deep sea fishing, swimming with the pigs, and other sightseeing. They were amazing and we would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the island.

My parents celebrated their 50 wedding anniversary at Long Island and Charles and Teresa made the entire week top notch!! They treated us like family and thought of every detail. We loved the stories they told, the amazing meals they served us and the thoughtful island touring suggestions they gave. For my parents anniversary celebration they brought sparklers - that made the night fun and special.
I would highly recommend Charles and Teresa to anyone coming to Long Island. I hope to see them again soon!!

We had guests visiting on the Island, and decided to go out with Charles and Theresa to do some fishing. What a great idea! When the trolling only turned up a Barracuda, we were taken to a reef to do some spearfishing. Besides our guests learning great tips on spearing, we were able to collect lobster, conch and one of our favorites - lionfish!! We had a wonderful day on the water, visited by a fun pod of dolphins, checked out the swimming Piggies, and marveled at all the colors of the sea. Awesome conversations, lots of information, and dinner to boot! Thanks for the great day - will definitely recommend your excursions to everyone!

Hi Martini Maker Bahamas!
Thank you for such a great review! It is very much appreciated! We did have a wonderful day! We are always overwhelmed by the dolphin pods that come out of nowhere! They are fun and engaging to see such grace and purpose just to play in the boat's wake!
Thank you for joining us! We hope to have you back again in the near future!
Take care and all the best!
Charles
