I booked a fishing trip with Brendal other then a few new rods, reels and lures the newly acquired boat is not set up for fishing. The newly appointed captain Jason was very nice and cordial. How ever even though the boat had twin large E-Tec engines and could go very fast we had to wait for the other fishing... More

Thank you for acknowledging the vessel is a nice boat. The vessel has a GPS and is available anytime the captains feel they need it for their day. Now Capt Jason is born and raised on Green Turtle Cay and knows the water here like the back of his hand and did not need want a GPS as it is... More

Brendal's Dive Center is a rock star type of place. On the wall of the set up center is a list of the many celebrities and notables who have gone out with Brendan, the place's charismatic namesake. Our family of four joined about 14 others on a well equipped catamaran power boat (40'?). There were also five other crew members... More

On the very rare chance of less than perfect weather in the Bahamas, trust Brendal's to make an all day excursion perfect. Brendal's had wetsuits and snorkel gear for a very minimal rental fee so we were glad we left our own gear at home. The weather was a bit cloudy and cool to start our snorkel experience, but our...

This was a first trip to the Bahamas for my Brother and I (both elders). I have previous dive/snorkel experience (long ago), my Brother had never snorkeled. We signed up for the Coral Reef/BBQ lunch snorkeling trip. Unfortunately, the ocean was not cooperating and Brendal (safety first) took us to a place called (I think) the Cavern - the water... More

Brendal took us to No Name Cay to feed the pigs. He was wonderful, entertaining, and accommodating. He is a superior guide; we will be going back to take more of his tours. I just wish we'd had more time to go out on another adventure during our stay!

Went out with Brendal and Ricky to feed the pigs on No Name Cay this morning. OMG!! It was so much fun! Brendal was entertaining and full of interesting information on the trip out to 'Piggyville'. Saw plenty of dolphins en route and easy joyed the rum punch. Would thoroughly recommend this trip. So much fun!!

We booked the all day snorkel/ dive excursion that includes the beach bbq lunch. There were 3 couples( 2) in mid thirties, 1 in sixties). We all had an excellent time! Please be aware that the water is still quite chilly in April so you need a wetsuit! The snorkeling was great- we saw sharks, rays and lots of fish.... More

We dove, 3 boys and I, 3 - 4 times with Brendal and his very kind staff. Really nothing bad to say, enough time, enough place on the boat, enough air in the tanks !. There are caves, wrecks, turtles, sea ray, shark, barracudas, but not so many fishes, no dolphins ! Amazing spot, nobody, no crowd, like cast away
