We had the privilege of spending the day with Captain Dennis and his team. It was truly a highlight of our time in Jamaica. We met Dennis in Treasure Beach and headed up the coast on his boat. We opted to make a brief spot at Pelican Bar but the best part of the day was spent at Dennis's special Beach. They cooked us a delicious lunch on the beach while we enjoyed a slice of paradise.

We just finished two days on the water with Dantae, who’s got to be Captain Dennis’s most skilled fishing guide/boat captain. Day 1 we went up the Black River, lunch on the beach, and drinks at the Pelican Bar. Dantae knew where to find all the crocs. His knowledge of and obvious love of his home, Treasure Beach, were obvious. I was a bit anxious about going out in the relatively small, open boat so far and in such big waters. I didn’t need to worry. His boat handling skills in rough water were truly amazing. He knew how to pick the right path through rough seas. We had a great time. Day 2. - 6 am fishing trip. Epic. Not for the number of fish caught, but the experience at dawn on the water, so far out in the seas, was priceless. We can’t recommend Captain Dennis boat tours, and Dantae specifically, highly enough. Do this while you still can.

We joined Captain Dennis and his team for a fabulous day. Collected by his crew we enjoyed an exhilarating ride in a clean and comfortable boat. On the way we were privileged to have a pod of dolphins swim along side us.
Our first stop is a visit to Pelican Bar - built on wooden stilts in the middle of the ocean. You can have a beer, browse the gift shop and have your name carved into the wood.
We then arrive at the beautiful private beach where you can swim, sunbathe, laze around in hammocks or just sit at the boat bar. Treated to the most delicious lunch of lobster, red snapper and traditional accompaniments lovingly prepared by the Captain. You are truly looked after on this fantastic day out - highly, highly recommended.

There are some experiences that are beyond words, a boat trip with Captain Dennis is one of them.

The attention to detail and care infused into every single element of the trip is next level. We saw dolphins, lunch cooked on the wood fire on the beach would rival any Michelin star restaurant.
We watched the sunset from the sea and marvelled at its beauty.

You are blessed if you experience a boat trip with Captain Dennis.

What an amazing adventure. Captain Dennis and his crew were great hosts and guides for our family and our friends. We all had a great time visiting the beautiful local sights and also traveling to Black River. Captain Dennis made us feel safe and well cared for. He clearly knows the ocean. And best of all, we saw dolphins on our trip: they came right up to the boats! We got great photos, and again, we were impressed with Dennis and his crew in how they respected the animals and we so careful with the interaction. We would recommend this experience to anyone!

Our favorite part of our trip to Jamaica was our tour with Captain Dennis. He took us to the Pelican Bar and then we had lunch on a private beach. We even saw dolphins on the way to the Pelican Bar. The day was magical and Captain Dennis is a wonderful host and fabulous cook!

Captain Dennis runs an amazing Tour, he is charming polite and Knowledgable and is the perfect host. The boat trip took us to Floyd's Pelican bar the staff there were friendly and professional and most hospitable. Dennis boat is immaculate shipshape clean and comfortable he and his team assisted all on and off the boat. He gave us a briefing before departure on what to expect. After Pelican he took us to a lovely beach spot well fitted out where we were fed the most lovely delicious gourmet meal prepared on site. An appetizer of shredded crab prepared in coconut milk served on sea grape leaves, simply delicious. Followed with fried fish, lobster, gungo peas and rice, butter beans and sweet corn in coconut milk, fried bread fruit, avocado pear and Fried plantain ( all equal to the finest 3 star Michelin). Some of us took to lovely hammocks in the shade for a siesta while others enjoyed the sea and beach. We started at 10 am and from Jakes and were returned at 4pm a most wonderful relaxing day hosted by an amazingly discrete host. Stress free relaxing experience, to be repeated.

I have no words for how amazing our day was with Captain Dennis and his crew. We have been visiting Treasure Beach for many years and always do a boat trip to Pelican Bar and Black River. This was the first time that we have used Captain Dennis and will not be the last.

7 of us booked the beach picnic trip. Communication by email was good and Captain Dennis was happy to change the day for us at short notice. He was also happy to provide chicken for one of our group who did not eat seafood.

We were picked up from Calabash Bay with a warm welcome. Captain Dennis' boat was pristine and we enjoyed a very comfortable journey to the beach.

The beach was fabulous. There was plenty of shade - with several hammocks. There were benches and a swing seat in the sea; a paddle board and even hangers made from tree branches to hang bags etc. Captain Dennis knew we hoped to see dolphins and was looking out as he planned to get us back into the boat if he spotted them. Unfortunately it was not to be on this trip - but we really appreciated him wanting to give us the best experience possible.

The food was outstanding! I have never liked crab but it was out of this world! You must try it even if you think you won't like it - honestly just delicious. The beans/chick pea dish (made by Captain Dennis' wife) and the fish and lobster were all amazing - some of the best food we had in our 3 week trip.

Drinks were plentiful - Red Stripe; rum; vodka; gin and soft drinks.

Captain Dennis strikes the right balance of socialising/chatting with guests and giving you time to relax. His love of/commitment to Treasure Beach is heart warming. Many people/businesses would benefit from adopting his attitude towards tourism/tourists. He makes it his mission to give a high quality, value for money experience - and he succeeded.

We were all in agreement that this was by far the best day of our holiday - and one of the best days I have ever had on any holiday.

Thank you Captain Dennis and crew. You gave us THE most memorable day. Hopefully there will be more in the future.

Captain Dennis took this energetic group of 22 women out to the Pelican Bar and then to a private beach for a picnic. The food that was prepared by his group was the absolute BEST food we had during our 5 days in Jamaica. We ladies had the absolute best time of our trip on this day. I’m pretty sure his group will never forget us. Do yourself a favor and enjoy his incredible hospitality and delicious food. The beauty of Jamaica from the water.
