“Okay cruise, but boat needs a little work”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 July 2013 via mobile

We travelled as a group of 26.

The good- capt ricco is a fun guy and tries to make sure everyone has a good time

The trip- the itinery of the pirate ship, dolphin cove, and island with snorkeling is a decent trip. We had bad weather which is not capt ricco fault, and made for a worse trip as other things became more noticable. If it was a sunny beautiful day, I am sure that the trip would have been a better one.

The concern- the boat is a little old and could use some refurbishment to spend the kind of money it cost for a day out on the water. We have chartered boats from caymans to Mexico, and this was the worst condition boat we have chartered. He had a boat in tow to help him steer out of dolphin cove, a little sketch if you ask me. While we were out on the water only one of the engines was running, so not sure if the other one worked, or he was just saving gas. He had a crew that didn't know what they were doing. Don't know if that his usual crew, but ours had to be explained every little thing to do, so impression was they didn't know what they were doing, especially after the one mate almost crashed the boat while ricco was doing something else.

Overall if it is a nice day, I would say you could have a decent trip because of the island and capt ricco, but I would take a good look at the boat and the crew before you decide to go out to make sure it meets your expectations.

“Power Boat Beach Party, WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2013

This is the second year I have gone out with Captain Rico and he didn't let us down either time. The ride is beautiful and the music is pure Bahamas and the food is fabulous. This time I snorkeled and it was beautiful. Captain Rico makes sure everyone has a good time and is a great tour guide of the island.

“Fantastic time on Rico's Party Boat!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

We had a great time on Rico's party boat this past week while in Freeport on vacation. Captain Rico promised us we'd have a good time and what a good time we had. From the time we boarded his boat at 10 a.m. until the time we came back to shore at 3, our drink cups were never empty, the music was great; we made new friends and learned about the beautiful island of Grand Bahama. While some of our party snorkeled off the private island he took us too, the rest of us swam and watched Rico prepare a delicious meal of fresh lobster and fish. Definitely recommend contacting Rico if you're looking for a fun way to spend a day in Freeport.

“Amazing time on Rico's Powerboat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

On a recent cruise to the Bahamas, my sister and I visited the Port Lucaya and ended up on the beach, that’s where we learned of Rico’s powerboat executions.
Boy did we have the time of our lives on Rico’s powerboat! I’m so glad we opted to ride on his boat, as we were able to see so much more of the island than sitting on the beach. And to top it off we even went snorkeling.
Both, Rico and his assistant were very fun and accommodating to all parties on the boat and they made sure we all enjoyed ourselves.
Now back at home reflecting on our trip, the Bahamas was amazing! And I look forward to visiting there again and to ride the ocean waves on Rico’s powerboat.
Definitely a “Must Do” if you’re traveling to the Bahamas, Freeport area.

“For fun in Freeport Bahamas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2013

The first thing we do when we get to Freeport is contact Rico. He always plans great adventures for us to do. Always fun, laid back, good food and plenty to drink. Highly recommend you get to know Rico. Tell him what you want and he will make it happen.
