This tour is fantastic - Lisa was super approachable, fun, and very clued up on the food scene in Bahamas. We had a blast, learnt lots and got to eat delicious food in good company! If you do this tour; I hope you get Lisa too!!

Too windy for glass bottom boat, but snorkeling was great. The guide took us to a reef and we saw a ton of fish. Bring your own fins, they provide mask and snorkel. Highly recommend

It was an amazing experience, even better than I expected. Best way to know Nassau. Our guide Archie is so nice. Everyone who visit Nassau should try it. Totally recommended.
