Captain Smiley and his crew were excellent. This was our second trip with them and would recommend their tour of the great Exuma islands. We loved the Thunderball Grotto and seeing the pigs. Would go with them again the next time we return. We love Exuma!

We went on the full day tour from 9a-5p. Captain Smiley showed us private celebrity islands, pig island, thunderball grotto, cave, a sand bar in the middle of the ocean that boats party on, a local restaurant for amazing food - ribs, mac and cheese, BBQ chicken, Bahamian bread, rice and beans, and kalik!, starfish bay, and iguana island. There... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our full day with Captain yellow and his first mate. We saw swimming pigs friendly iguanas a beautiful grotto and celebrity Islands. Captain yellow and his first mate made sure things went smoothly and they were always friendly and informative. I would definitely do this again.

I booked the tour for 2 people online to do a half day tour. I received a confirmation email saying pickup at the Sandals resort hotel at 1:00PM SHARP. We waited in the lobby at 12:30 until 1:00PM, until it passed. They never showed up! Apparently they claimed they showed up but we weren't there, we were waiting straight in... More

clayton s, Owner at Exuma Water Tours, responded to this review

Firstly, let me apologize. There must be some confusion. If you don't show for some reason, there is only a 20% fee and we never pickup at sandal lobby, pickup is at the security at the entrance of the hotel. Furthermore, we pickup at 12:00 to 12:15pm, not at 1:00pm. If this customer was actually booked with us, they would... More

When choosing a company - this is the one to pick! Full day of fun and adventure. Long boat rides at high speeds made for some cold times so bring a jacket or extra towel. LOVED the caves, the snorkeling, the sharks, iguanas and of course the swimming pigs! The crew of our boat was outstanding and answered all of... More

Loved being able to see so much on the surrounding Cays. Not only did we pass by several luxurious, celebrity owned islands, we learned history about some of the areas we passed by. Spent a lot of time on the boat traveling but had some fun time in the water, too. Our Captain, Smiley, and his buddy Rod were amazing... More

Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our day with the Four C's! We went on a "island safari" and were able to see some amazing places around the Exuma archipelago. Truly amazing! Visiting the pigs and swimming with sharks were truly one in a lifetime experience, and I highly recommend it! We also visited the Iguana Island, and saw an... More

From Pigs to Lizards to Star Fishes it was a fabulous afternoon….so many things to see & do. We could have booked this trip through the Sandals Resort & paid $181.95 per person but instead we did our homework & only paid $110 per person by booking it with Exuma Water Tours ……it is well worth the money. Thank you... More

The weather was perfect for 1/2 day on the water. We visited several islands. Swimming with the pigs and feeding them hot dogs was a blast. Probably 20 to 25 pigs ranging in size small to large. Also had piglets you could pick up. Lots of fun. The next island were the iguanas. We fed them grapes...they loved them. Some... More
