Captain Dennis is a great host. He does take particular care to ensure his passengers are comfortable and have a good time. The Black River trip is well worth the effort, and very instructive. I would advise getting the patties from Black River than eating at the Pelican Bar. Take plenty of sunscreen.

Captain Dennis and his crew are fun and relaxed and great cooks too! A private beach, a trip to Pelican Bar, and such a great boat ride. We all had a blast--from the 11-year-old to the 70-year-old.

What could be better than a private tour to a secluded beach, a stop at the Pelican Bar, a delicious lunch of crab, lobster, rice, veggies and festival, prepared especially for you, and some dolphin watching? Nothing could be better! Captain Dennis and crew made my first trip to Treasure Beach a memorable one that I will never forget!

We arranged a private outing to Black River, Pelican Bar and snorkelling, and were picked up at 9:30 on the dot at the Calabresh Beach fishing station by Captain Dennis and his assistant Adrian. The Black River cruise was wonderful with not only crocodiles but numerous birds which were identified do us. We had the chance to go farther up... More

There are probably other day trip organizers but I cannot imagine anyone surpassing Captain Dennis in creating a day trip like none other. Our yoga group booked a day trip to Pelican Bar and lunch on the beach with Captain Dennis not knowing how truly special a day it would really be. Since we were trying to beat the late... More

Dennis' nephew Sherwayne actually guided our trip out of Treasure Beach, and did a fine job. On our return to TB, he brought our boat over to the beach where Uncle Dennis was doing a beach picnic gig, and the Captain was gracious enough to provide us with complementary Red Stripes and festival while introducing himself. Class act. Not only... More

With no rush, having time for us at pelican bar and on black river. The opportunity of seeing dolphins and crocodiles in... More

Amazing experience with Captain Dennis! He is very professional and friendly! We were fortunate enough to go on a tour of Pelican Bar and Black River with him as we saw dolphins and crocodiles! He also explained to us the history and demographic of Black River! Highly recommend Captain Dennis!

Exploring the Treasure Beach/Black River area is great, but if you go with Captain Dennis, your experience will be magnificent. Great clean boats, attentive and experienced staff, He is the best of the best. Suggest you try the beach BBQ to find out that Captain Dennis could also be called Chef Dennis! :)
