Great opportunity to see marine life, hover over reef sharks, observe stingrays, turtles, living mollusks...and then just relax a bit on a short boat ride across clear, calm waters.

We saw so much! On the way to our snorkeling spots, we saw the island Jack Sparrow was stranded on, where several famous people owned land, and a bit of history. The snorkeling experience was amazing, as I was in the water, we fed the fish and they were swarming us (get an underwater phone case) the videos and pictures I took were amazing. The best part was when a sea turtle swam right by me! Shortly thereafter we were taken to a place we were allowed to get into the water with SHARKS! This was a bucket list experience!

This trip was amazing they take you to two different areas where you can see beautiful colorful fish and the last part of the trip is the best part when they feed the sharks and you float above them ! Best trip ever

We LOVED this adventure! This was our first trip that included snorkeling in the open ocean. We brought our own gear and were glad to have it. We were taken to two different reefs the first one was much better with regard to numbers/variety of fish as well as coral selections. Be prepared, you are expected to jump off the side of the rocking boat into the ocean AND stay close enough to hear the call/whistle when it's time to come in. I will admit that I was so enthralled with my exploratoins that I was too far away to hear anything and only noticed that I was the only one left in the water when I saw the full boat. Oops. The last stop was a chance to slip into the water while holding onto a rope while sand sharks were gathered around a tube filled with bait. They are bottom feeders but it was a major head rush to have sharks a few feet below you as you floated on the surface of the ocean watching them through your snorkel mask. Would highly recommend!

This tour is made by the Stuart Cove company, if you book this through their website it will be MUCH cheaper, we payed $40 too much just by booking through viator. This was not 5hours, we were out max 3 hours with the boat. You get to see alot of fish and sharks! Buy the extra fish food, worth it!

Part of my concern about the safety of this trip is due to the weather. We left in a pouring rain, and shortly there was lightning striking all around us. Had we been offered our money back if we returned to dock, I think we would have gladly accepted it. We were eventually able to snorkel when the thunderstorm died down. We didn't see as many fish as I'd hoped - maybe the weather affected them as well. I enjoyed seeing the sharks as the last part of our tour.

It was a great snorkeling tour. The staff were very friendly and professional. We had 3 stops. The 1st have the most fish and a very beautiful reef. The 2nd had underwater statues with a few less fish but still enjoyed it. The 3rd stop was to see the sharks. They lower a basket deep into the water and monitor the sharks and after a safety briefing, we enter the water for 3-5 mins with the sharks swimming below us by the bait box. Felt very safe. After everyone is out of the water, the bait box is brought to the surface and you get to see the sharks at the surface. I liked that as much as being in the water. Our Captain was Christopher. Top Notch. and Gabriella was one of the guides also top notch and I forgot the other gals name who was great as well. We were fortunate enough to have a dive instructor on board and he is the one that feeds the sharks on the excursion for divers, he shared is vast knowledge about the sharks and their behavior. He really added to the trip and I would love to visit him again if we can make it back to Nassau sometime.

My fiance and I booked this excursion a couple of days before we left to Nassau on our cruise. We had an amazing time. All the employees were so nice and friendly. They really made us feel special. I would go back over and over again.
