This tour is an amazing value. The boat is very unique and seats just 20 people..so not like the packed boats you see in the harbour. The boat is open for fresh air, but the top is covered so you are protected from the sun. the bottom is a glass oval and you can see down into the water, to sealife and coral. You tour around the harbour making several stops. The tour is narated by the one of the captians and is full of a variety of interesting info...about the history of the area, the sea life, conservation of the area and they point out the lovely homes and villas along the shore owned by famous people. We saw fish, bit and little and sea turtles and coral reefs. We saw the homes of many famous people including Oprah and JK Rowling. Just make sure you know where you are meeting the tour as if you click on the map of the meetup place it is on the other side of the bridge from where you meet. Awesome staff on this tour...highly recommend.

Baja Bree was the best! We walked around Nassau stopping at different off the beat path spots and learned about the local culture. The food was delicious and diverse at each stop- always featured conch served in different ways. The final stop at the souvenir shop was my least favorite.

A very memorable day! We were able to kayak and enjoy the beach and lighthouse at Pearl island. Lunch was tasty. The swimming with the pigs was such a fun experience. My daughter loved it and none of us will ever forget it! I already have friends asking for the booking info!

While it was not the best of conditions on the water, the trip was very enjoyable. Snorkeling was fun. We did not see the turtles due to weather but it was okay. The pigs were the highlight. So cool to see

The 4 hour speedboat was perfectly timing, enough to enjoy the ride and the snorkellings. The highlight was the pigs. But we really enjoyed every bit of the tour. Fantastic!
