Basil is awesome. The snorkeling trip is excellent. Talk about a great get away from the Ship... This is a must do. Our family ranges from 6 to 75 and everyone had a blast!

We stayed at Hilton Nassau, and this place is right next door along the beach. They only charged $40 a person (versus the $65 and up elsewhere). He only takes small groups, which is more intimate and personalized. Our other family didn't show up, so...More
