A perfect day for snorkeling in and around a coral reef in the water off Nassau and Basil was an excellent guide and boat captain. He knew where to go, how to explain to us where to find the coolest fish and reefs. We went to an out-of-the-way place where no one else was snorkeling. It was an amazing day.... More

I don't know where to start. The excursion was great! the guide pointed out where to find a turtle which made my wife's vacation! Wonderful boat ride and learned a lot about the island. Wonderful trip worth every penny! However, Kathy with Blue hold watersports has gone above and beyond... Bigtime. I left my GoPro camera on the boat >.<... More

Went snorkeling with Basil and thoroughly enjoyed the outing. Some of the best coral I've gotten to snorkel over and so many fish to see. Lots of varieties. Loved the fact it was practically a personal tour as I've experienced snorkeling tours with larger groups and it's always a bit too crowded for my liking. For the ultimate snorkeling experience...

Mark was an excellent captain and guide. The reefs were beautiful and he pointed this "snorkeling newbie" to some very exciting spots. I viewed a sea turtle, stingrays, lots of very colorful coral and beautiful fish. He took us by the Atlantis and showed us some of the places on shore that we would not have seen otherwise. And the... More

Went snorkeling with Blue Hole Watersports. Will definitely snorkel with them again. Basil was amazing. We only went to one spot due to the weather; it wasn't too sunny but underwater was still visible. It was a good trip, I enjoyed it.

We met Basil at 9 am. We walked over from our cruise ship. They hold your reservations with a credit card but don't charge it until day of. Unless you don't cancel within 72 hours. We went to two different reefs. Both amazing! We only had 6 people on our boat. Perfect size. Basil drove us around the Atlantis resort.... More

Had a great time with Mark of Blue Hole Watersports. My husband, good friend and her exchange student all enjoyed snorkeling at 2 different sites in Nassau! We saw a large variety of fish at the first site. The second site had alot of fish but more coral, fans and underwater formations. Both sites were incredible! I especially appreciated the... More

When our ship arrived to port it was pouring rain but my husband and I decided to go for it and so HAPPY we did! Loved how it was a short walk from Cruise Ship port. Basil was so friendly and laid back. Once we got into the warm water we forgot about the rain and were transported to a... More

My family and I had an amazing experience on this snorkeling trip! These guys know exactly where to go to see beautiful fish and coral. We also saw a turtle. The excursion lasted around two hours and we were able to snorkel in two different locations (both beautiful). There were 5 cruise ships in the docks, but we still had... More
