Easy to rent a boat and go exploring. Our advice is: don't go on your own, hire a local guide to go with you. Best day of our holiday, swimming with a wild dolphin in the harbour. We saw starfish, turtles and huge red and...More

We honeymooned on Great Exuma in 1994 and rented a Boston Whaler for the week from Minns on that first trip. In February 2018 we returned and rented from them again and had the same wonderful experience and service. Our 22 Powercat had a nice...More

We rented the 22' Whaler with twin Yamaha 115's. Rental process was quite easy. Boat rental on Exuma probably not a good idea for non-experienced boaters, but if you have a boat at home and know what you're doing- you'll be fine. Lots of cays...More

Very nice trip, we enjoyed it so much. We recommend it. Visited cave, pig’s island, swimming with sharks, and some very nice beaches.

Very friendly and quick. Our boat worked great. They even let us borrow a cooler. A bit expensive but what can you do. Maybe take a Taxi but then they only drop you off at a couple places and you can miss some incredible beaches!!!!...More

You absolutely could, but you are not allowed to take any of the rental boats out of Elizabeth Harbor. Also, taking a boat to any beach that is not protected by a barrier reef could be disastrous on even a slightly windy day. More

We also had no problems with return of the deposit. The boat & engine were in terrific shape and very clean. And Elizabeth Harbour is a fairly safe place to run boats. Not an excessive amount of coral and their maps to good... More
