This was a good boat trip, but I have lots to say and there is a lot you should know.
Jan. 2020
First things first I feel really bad giving them a 3 star review because everyone on the boat was REALLY nice. We took this trip out of their Nassau location.

The good things. The food was great. There were 4 staff on the boat and they were all super nice. The one guy who pointed out things of interest was great. He answered questions and pointed lots of fun stuff. We did jump off the boat to explore a reef and that was fun as well.

The bad things: They ran out of beer. Did you hear me? THEY RAN OUT OF BEER. Also, We did no actual sailing. He did put the mainsail up but we were motoring directly INTO the wind. That's not sailing. Other than stopping at the reef we really just motored around for a few hours. Again, if you are hoping to do any actual sailing, this is not the trip for you. So I guess if you want to just motor around the harbor, get a nice tour, and go for a dive one of the "party cat" boats would probably be more comfortable. (and maybe they wouldn't run out of beer!) If you want to go sailing....well this isn't the trip for you either. One of the many catamaran tours would probably be more comfortable. Also, even though this was a 50 ft monohull sailboat it was pretty crowded. I think there were 20+ of us. With that many people sitting up on deck there's not a lot of room to move around. Did I mention they ran out of beer?

I feel terrible writing this review because they were all super nice. I just think they need to either be a SAILING trip (what I was looking for) or just buy a catamaran and be a motoring trip.

G is a G😎
Dec. 2019 • Friends
Me and my friend came on this excursion on our first cruise, and honestly enjoyed the trip a lot!! The sailing was luxurious and the drinks was on the spot, the bartender was very great to talk to, and we called him G, but a very nice guy, but everyone else with the staff including the captain gave us a great time! The sailing was awesome and plus the food was great! Only thing that could’ve been different was giving tips on how to equalize the pressure with my ears underwater, because I was dumb enough to dive down in 15-20 ft of water to grab shells, and collect a little bottle of sand, but my ears hurt so much afterwards 😂, but that isn’t the people’s fault, it’s mine, but all in all a great experience, the staff is very friendly, and the drinks are very good.

Hopefully G gets the chance to see this, but next time I’ll have to do a gainer off the boat, instead of a backflip 😂

SCAM! Do not book this trip!
Aug. 2019 • Family
I had booked this trip in advance for my mother’s 65th birthday. I had tried numerous times to call and email for confirmation and verify pickup. Phone was never answered or email! Company I booked through also made several attempts to reach them. They also could never reach anyone. I had a local Bahamian friend who knew these people. He called from his cell. They immediately answered. I asked them what was going on. He said he would have to check. I did receive 1 email from them an hour after the ship left stating that the had tried to reach me. Now, they won’t answer for the company to issue refund! I will tell all my local friend in Freeport to spread the word.

Great time at sea
Jul. 2019 • Couples
We had a great time at sea. The tour includes all as described except the stand up paddle boards. Per tour description: WHAT'S INCLUDED
1. Hotel pickup and drop-off (selected hotels only)
2. Lunch
3. Unlimited drinks (open bar)
4. Use of Snorkelling equipment
5. Stand up paddle boards
We did struggle a little bit on the communication with the tour company regarding pick up time at the hotel. We got picked up at 12:15pm and tour started at 12:30pm. When we arrived they immediately took us to sea and we had a good time dancing, tanning, sailing, snorkeling... We personally didn’t drink any of the alcohol but they do have an open bar. After the tour they fed us lunch but we found out that the others in the tour had lunch before departing which I found a bit strange. In conclusion I would recommend the tour as a fun activity in Freeport.

Fantastic time on the water!
Jun. 2019 • Family
We joined Neil and Captain Lee (Leathan) through an excursion with the Norwegian Sun. As a family, we enjoy snorkeling, and we're glad we found this excursion. The six of us were part of the total group of 10 that time, and the small group made this so much more valuable for the price.

We enjoyed sailing out, being allowed to sit just about anywhere on the boat. Sitting on the bow, we were pleasantly surprised by Neil passing drinks to us from below through the portholes on the deck. Once anchored, the snorkeling was top notch. After snorkeling, the lunch was a wonderful treat, with a conch ceviche that was excellent.

Once returned to the dock, we were surprised yet again. We were taken to the Bahamas Adventures complex, where they have a bar, tables, meal service, and a beautiful beach with activities. We were able to lounge, swim, or otherwise frolic while waiting for our transportation back to the ship. It was a wonderful cap to a great experience, and one we will be talking about for a long, long time. Thank you, Bahamas Adventures!

One of the Best Excursions I have done!!!
Jun. 2019 • Friends
Went on the half-day Lucy sail boat and had one of the best times with great friends. World class service by the staff, better drinks than the drinks I had on the ship! I’m not a heavy drinker and these drinks were nicely balanced. Reef was so nice, there was so many varieties of fish and coral. Glad I got the chance to we the beautiful coral before anything happens to them. Also like to add that the beach portion of the trip was also nice, great food and scenery.

Our Favorite Excursion to Date
Jun. 2019 • Couples
We sailed with about 15 passengers and Neil and Kendall on a day in Freeport that was replacing the day in Havana that I know we were all sad to miss (only a week after trips to Cuba were stopped). This day of sailing ended up being our favorite day in port in all of our seven cruises to date. The water was calm and beautiful, the views were gorgeous. The small group made it very relaxing. The staff was friendly and helped us all have a great time. There were several drinks included, and the food was very nice as well. The snorkeling was great. The equipment was clean and in good shape, and the spot offered some great views and a very relaxing wonderful snorkeling experience. The bus ride to the sail boat was very relaxing and entertaining. There was a beach we went to after where we could relax for about an hour before the buses started taking people back. There were some great hammocks in the shade and we had a relaxing and lovely nap on the beach. This day was perfect. I was joking with my husband that I wished they had an afternoon trip as well because I would sign up to go right back out when we were finished.

Just what we needed
We were on a short cruise to get away and decompress. We just wanted a relaxing day on a boat. Neil and Kendall were our hosts and did a great job. Kendall was friendly and answered all our questions about the boat. Neil is a natural host and entertainer. We always had a fresh drink and he was happy to help with pictures or even pose in them upon request. When we got back to the beach we were all drinking and Neil jumped in and made sure everyone was having a good time. I would recommend this shoe excursion and would request Neil in advance if I go again.

Luxury Sailing and Snorkeling
Apr. 2019 • Family
Had a wonderful experience sailing and snorkeling during a recent trip to the Bahamas that we booked on our Carnival cruise. Jason our captain and Eugene the bartender was great! They both were polite and extremely entertaining. They made our experience fun and exciting. Also want to say the manager of the shop was absolutely amazing. We had a group of 4 people, which one of them was an elderly woman who was having a hard time walking. When we got back to the shop the manager took all 4 of us back to our boat dock in his own car because she could not walk the long distance back. He was friendly and very professional. Service was excellent! Thank to the manager who I believe his name may have been Miguel and the whole staff!
