“Captain Bill-what a guy! Don't miss this trip! It's just fantastic.”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Captain Bill pulled up in his boat outside our villa-we jumped on and that's where the party began. The snorkelling was amazing, Captain Bill's wealth of knowledge and on land tour of historic piracy and ancient pirate carvings was fascinating. He can also whip up some pretext ace chicken on the BBQ and his free flowing rum punch just hit the mark!

“yolo ~ the perfect day”
Reviewed 28 March 2014

We were a group ranging in ages 8-80 and booked a private excursion with Captain Bill. He is a character for sure but what a trip! He is knowledgeable and his passion for the ocean is evident in all he does. His boat was pristine and he ensured my parents were assisted as necessary to keep them safe. The children loved the snorkelling and the pirate cave markings were very interesting. The touch that was so cool for the children is that he checked under a shell as we were leaving and found some chocolate gold coins that the pirates had left. Magical for the kids. He went out of his way to track rays and turtles for us to see. But what I really yearn for is the recipe for the marinade on the chicken we had for lunch. Fantastic food and drinks. It was just a perfect day. Strongly recommend.

“Best excursion in Provo!”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

This was our 3rd trip to the beautiful Island. We had 2 AWFUL excursions from one if the "big name" local companies so we didn't venture out last year. On the advice of our kids, who booked the excursion with Captain Bill n late December, we had an amazing trip! From the beautiful snorkeling spots to an awesome history lesson in the pirate cave to the best shore lunch we have ever had on a trip. Beautiful private cove with huge, colorful starfish! It's a must if u go to Provo to book the Wednesday trip! See u next year!

“Best value in Provo”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

We just returned from an adventure with Captain Bill and couldn't be happier! From wading onto the boat at Salpoldilla Bay to spending time on a secluded beach and everything in between, we couldn't have asked for a better experience. We were able to enjoy great snorkeling, a pirate cave and markings, starfish on the beach, turtles, and eagle rays. Captain thought of everything, from snacks, bottomless drinks, and an incredible BBQ. This is the type of adventure every age can enjoy and one we won't soon forget.

“Fun day”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

Captain Bill and crew did a great job. I've been on a lot of snorkeling trips and this one by far was the most entertaining. Captain Bill knows his history and delivers it with flare. Beautiful snorkel sites, real pirate adventure and a slice of heaven on a pristine beach.

Truly exceptional.
