Enough is Enough, Sandals cannot keep telling lies to keep their guests from going out with local businesses. If you are one of those individuals that Sandals tour company Island Routes has told they are the only insured and licensed company on the island that is FALSE. There are many reputable watersports/tour companies on the island who are licensed and insured. Also if they try to tell you that one of the watersports company is closed dont listen to them, do your research and contact the tour companies directly. Not only will you be supporting local business owners, you will also save alot of money. See things to do in Great Exuma for a list of other companies you can use while visiting the island.
You should also know that one of their staff that makes the reservation for these tours has a family member who is contracted through Sandals for watersports tours. Put the two and two together. It has also been brought to my attention that this particular watersports operator has private messaged potential guests who were making posts on tripadvisor about going out with other tour companies and bashed those other companies about what a poor business they are. Even though the positive reviews speak for themselves.
Think twice about what businesses you want to support. Quite frankly this lack of professionalism is appalling.
