Pirate caves, pirate treasure map carvings, snorkelling with lobsters, miles of secluded beach with nothing in sight but sea and sand, hearty BBQ lunch with unlimited drinks (including beer, soft drinks and an awesome rum punch), snacks and a tour guide who will keep you informed and entertained for the entire cruise. What more could you ask for? Great for... More

Captain Bill took us on a fun, informative, and "illuminating" glow worm tour around the bay in Chalk Sound last night. Captain Bill is very professional and has a great sense of humor. We were served snacks and rum punch/beer during the cruise. The glow worms came out and did their thing just after dark and it was quite a... More

This half day adventure is a great mix of history, snorkeling, sun and fun. Captain Bill and Monie are accommodating hosts who deliver the goods and good food not to mention great rum punch. We had rum punch all over the island and this was the best! The snorkeling time of a half hour was just enough to see everything.... More

On a whim we booked last minute the day before our vacation ended, and it was the highlight of our trip! Our family had so much fun I wanted to review this boat tour (I'm not a big reviewer either) and was SHOCKED to see the two nasty reviews proceeding. Don't buy into what the negative nancy pants are trying... More

I found this excursion to be quite terrible. Every single joke was told by captain bill at least 10 times, the crew was not friendly, the snorkeling spot was a rock.. When there is one of the biggest coral reefs in the world in the Turks, sorry, but a rock doesn't even come close to cutting it. The boat was... More

Two negative responses back to back in a month.....really? If you look at the past six years of reviews; you will find I have NEVER responded to even one review. Occasionally there is something that I do not agree with but try to find something in the review that will make my tour better. Constructive criticism is always welcome but... More

Save your money and go out with a local. Captain bill was quite rude and abrasive. His snorkel "spot" as he calls it is actually a rock with some sea weed growing on it in very rough water. Many children and parents needed help getting back on the boat but that help wasn't coming from bill or his crew so... More

Please be advised that three out of the last six reviews depict me as rude & nasty; is this a conspiracy or a "copy-cat" mentality? I trust you review the others and make your own call. I have been the captain of ocean outback for the past 28 years (the longest established boat tour operator on Provo,) I pride myself... More
