Boat Rental on Spanish Wells

We will be staying for a little over a week on Spanish Wells. We plan to do a full day guided boat tour, but we are also wondering if it is worth it to rent a boat for the week to explore on our own. We have lots of boating experience around Charleston, SC, but don't know how difficult it is to navigate the waters around Spanish Wells. Any advice would be appreciated.

Theres a couple other options also, just ask around.

Stay away from the 'Devils Backbone' reef.

Andre at Harbourside (link above) 242-333-5822 will get you set up with a boat. The Devils Backbone, as mentioned above is wicked. I mean wicked, I have seen a 40' Sportfish on the hill after tangling with the bone. Captain was hanging his head :(

Who is your boat tour with? We like to use Tweety.

We used Spanish Wells Fishing, Capt Ryan Neilly, he's #1 rated on TA, he answers pretty quick on emails.
