“Fast and furious!”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

My wife and I had a great time on this day adventure. The boat ride was a blast, fast and bouncy. The first stop with the iguanas on the beach was pretty cool. The second stop feeding the rays and watching the sharks was awesome, we will have many memories of this. It was a windy day so the "drift" snorkeling was more like surfing, we were flying. I was hoping for better, but the conditions wouldn't allow it. The lunch they prepared was very good and the drinks were free flowing. A very friendly crew that were willing to help with anything. On of the crew gave my wife a conch shell from the water and even cleaned it up for her.

“Worth the trip. Unique experience”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 via mobile

This was well worth the cost. My husband I took on our last day in Nassau and loved it. It was nice to speed off into the horizons down to the exumas and feel like you were truly jetting off to a remote slice of paradise. The hour long ride down was relaxing and calm. Feeding the iguanas was not high on my kit to start but it was fun to watch them scramble for grapes and even see a baby iguana as well scurry along and play in the grape accumulation game. The sting rays and sharks freaked me out at first. I wondered why we would feed them nd then get in the water to snorkel but it seemed to work. It was really cool to feed the sting rays and have such a close encounter with them. The shark feeding was frantic but fun to watch for me. The lunch was delicious as well. Although I'd recommend the fish over the beef as it was too well done for my liking. The snorkeling was lovely but too down falls. The equipment is really good they provided. However we went on a day where the current was really strong 6-7mph. It was great to float by the reef with no effort but it also meant it went really fast. The fish were plentiful and pretty. The other downside is that it was a really hard swim to shore. Not for the beginner swimmers. Once u get to shore you have to climb back over rocky terrain which hurts pedicured feet :( and u have to be careful. Nay husband slipped and cut his foot open. The team was very attentive to getting his assistance though. Even joking he needed to stay out of the water for fear of the sharks. We had an amazing time and can't wait to go back especially as we heard they will be offering overnight trips/stays as well.

“Don't Miss This in Nassau!”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

GREAT NASSAU TRIP! The day starts with a exciting cruise at high speeds across the ocean waters to the Exume Islands. First stop, you are greeted by 200+ hungry Iguanas. Here you drop out of the boat into crystal clear water and then you feed the iguanas grapes by using sticks you find on the beach. After about 20 minutes you head to the main Powerboat Adventures island. Here it is all you can eat and drink. The Giant Stingrays and local Sharks hear the boat and start coming to shore to see who is visiting them that day. Everyone lines up on shore and then they get to feed the Stingray. In case you miss this, dont worry. The Stingrays hang around all day for extra attention. After the stingray feeding is the REAL SHOW. Bring on the sharks!! The professional shark wranglers bring the wild sharks right on shore so you can get very close. It was an incredible experience. Moments after the shark show, you grab your snorkel gear and head out into the current to see some local see life. The rest of the day you lounge on the beach and hang out. The PBA guys make FRESH Conch salad, too! Don't let the price scare you!! It's worth every penny and don't forget to give a BIG TIP for those that make your time special.

“Fun in the Sun! :)”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We took the DAY EXCURSION in September. Overall very good experience. Not sure if worth the steep price, but definitely great way to spend few hrs.
Pros:
- Fairly big, comfortable boat
- The ride was not super long, nice views along the way
- The crew was nice & helpful
- Delicious food once on the island
- The stingray/shark/iguana encounters are very unique and fun
Cons:
- Poor organization before the entrance to the boat - waited in line, out in the hot sun, for nearly 45 min - some crew members were on the boat, just sitting & watching the line, there was no reason to have us stand there for so long (no shaded area and you had to stand if you wanted to get on the boat, once checked in)
- The island's location is not good for snorkeling - total waste of time & energy
- Due to the sharks presence you can't really go into the water (you can chill in the water but very close to the beach only)
- Overpriced
