Great snorkeling!
, Jul 2022
Brice gave us a detailed tour on the van ride to the boat. The drive was longer than we expected and the van was very hot. The boat ride was bumpy, but fine and the group was small with about 8 passengers. The snorkeling was awesome, we saw lots of starfish, sea biscuits, fish and a sting ray. He took us to two spots and we didn’t have to exert much energy due to the current which would take us around as Brice followed us in his boat. The lunch was good and beach house was nice, but the beach time was short. I would recommend this excursion, but just be aware of the long drive and boat ride may not be for everyone. If you have young kids bring your own snorkeling equipment and life jackets. My kids ages 4 and 10 both enjoyed the trip and the snorkeling.
Great adventure! Highly recommend....

The trip was fun! Seeing the sea turtles was awesome, but visitors would need to remember that this is their habitat and they will come out and be seen if they want to. I would recommend bringing some bread to break pieces off to feed them. The kayaking was great. We had a few equipment issues, but Brice knew what to do and we overcame them pretty easily. After seeing the starfish, some stingrays, and the conch farms they have nearby, they fed us lunch and took us back. Overall it was a great experience in the remote parts of the island that I would recommend to anyone visiting. It is also not overly time consuming and you'll have more time in the day to do other things. If you can, I would recommend driving yourself because there is lots to see on the way out to the East End and back. Thank you Brice and your co-host (did not remember her name, but she was very nice). Enjoyed the adventure and the conversation! We're hoping good fortune shines on you, your business, and your island as the natural setbacks (Hurricane Dorian and COVID) subside!

Enjoyable experience
, Jun 2021
Brice was a great guide! It’s a little bit of a drive from the Freeport area (about an hour), but worth it. The kayaking was great and we were able to see some sea turtles at the sanctuary in their own habitat. Lunch was good and I enjoyed it for me, but I would suggest providing options/choices for meat/condiments on the sandwich.

Thank you for your review, we will take your suggestion into consideration. Thanks, Brice.
Incredible Experience
, May 2019
Started the excursion with visiting a sea turtle park where the guide fed the sea turtles and over 20 came out to see us! They looked like a painting they were so beautiful in the clear tropical water. Next we kayaked in the clear water spotting rays, star fish, and many other beautiful wildlife. Worth every penny. Hands down best excursion in Freeport. No one else we talked to enjoyed what they did on the island. High recommend this. We were only in port 5 hours, but they made every minute count while getting up back with plenty of time to shop!

Very long car ride for short experience. Not exactly what we were expecting, although it was interesting once we were finally able to get there. No ferry...small fisherman's boat. A bit disorganized. :/

This was such a remarkable adventure. The Excursion guide was excellent. The weather prevented us from kayaking, but the guide took us on a longer tour on a small motor boat. Despite the bad weather, we still saw three species of sea turtles! Given the distance from Freeport and the activity required, it will not be everyone's favorite event. If you are an adventurous type who is looking for an off-the-beaten-path excursion out of Freeport to get a taste of the real Bahamas, this is the excursion for you.

I used Viator, because we use them in other ports and have many times. This is NOT an ideal tour for a short time in port. The ride to the boat, there was no ferry was 40 minutes plus, then a 15 minute ride to the place where you walk a distance to the Turtle park, then another ride to the Kayak. The ocean here was beautiful, the starfish abundant in clear blue water. We were asked about lunch in the van ride out 4x at least, each time we responded No thanks, we had planned to get back to Freeport and have lunch there at a favorite spot. The excursion was fine once we arrived, but not knowing the DISTANCE from our ship for a short day was misleading. Once we came back on the Kayak, something was said about fishing and looking for another line, we told our guide, we did not wish to fish and would like to get back to port. He said ok, but FISHED HIMSELF on our way back, at least a 15minute delay, waiting on a line that was tangled. Very unprofessional. Once we arrived back off the small boat, to meet our taxi driver we were asked 10x plus what time our ship left, which I had contacted them before to let them know, and we also had told our driver on the way out, 1:00 pm. He drove 80 miles an hour PLUS, and told us how he was going to get us back, going to get us back, going to get us back. I do not feel like this tour should be included in Viator. It is NOT UP TO THEIR STANDARDS. Very disappointing, and too much money for the trip we got. Not our first tour, not our first cruise, but our first time disappointed. Oh, the taxi driver on his way after picking us up, STOPPED FOR GAS, AND STOPPED TO PICK HIS GIRLFRIEND UP? REALLY? This is not ok, for a job. Viator needs to revaluate their relationship with this tour.

This tour was an adventure. It took you out of the tourist part of the island to a remote location. We were able to see the sea turtles,take a kayak trip in the ocean,spend some time in a beautiful home on the island, and enjoy a fabulous lobster lunch which is highly recommended for a small price!

We had a BLAST! Brice was so AWESOME! He was friendly, knowledge and professional and made our one-on-one experience an unforgettable one! Starfish, sharks, sea turtles, sting rays, sanddollars, conch shells, and sea biscuits were just a few pieces of nature we were able to explore! AMAZING TOUR GUIDE!!!!
