Bay West Adventures conception was created by Captain Samuel T. Hoffer whom is an avid fisherman and entrepreneur. Our team consists of four individuals who include Captain Sam and Captain Timmy. We are a small family owned business with a growing clientele that caters to each party/individual whom is looking for their own private and exclusive Boat Tour. Our team of captains are born and raised in the Bahamas with over 20years of boating and diving experience in the oceans of the Bahamas. Boating and free diving with snorkeling equipment is our hobby which we all did during weekdays and weekends in every part of the ocean off the coast of Nassau Bahamas and other family islands. We all know many diving spots and sights that other Boat Tour companies in the Bahamas do not know We are the most personable and accommodating Boat Tour Company in the Bahamas our trip advisor, and facebook likes/comments back it up.
