It was great. Just us and one other couple. The owner, Basil, takes you out on his small speedboat to a beautiful coral reef and you snorkel for a little over an hour. Nothing fancy about the experience, but the snorkeling was great and the equipment was very good. Basil was great helping my wife with the equipment and getting... More

Our family of four (two adults and two teens) booked a three hour private snorkeling excursion with Blue Hole water sports for the day our cruise ship was in port in Nassau. We loved it!! It was truly the highlight of our cruise. The teens had never snorkeled before and were really looking forward to it. On the day of... More

I booked this excursion privately based on Trip Advisor reviews. We were docked in Nassau with a cruise ship. It was about a 15 minute walk from cruise ship to Blue Hole Watersports location. Just on the other side of Senor Frogs. It was quite windy the day we were there so we could only go to one reef instead... More

We booked a snorkeling excursion, and it was perfect. Our guide/ captain, Basil, was courteous, knowledgeable and flexible. The snorkeling was fantastic. We had a terrific time. The meeting place to get in the boat was very convenient, within short walking distance from the cruise terminal.

We had a great time snorkeling with Mark from Blue Hole Watersports. He was friendly and helpful. There were 6 of us in our group. Mark was very patient with the first timers. He took us to a beautiful spot. The water was crystal clear and there were hundreds of beautiful fish of all sizes. It was so worth the... More

Basil Taylor is a wonderful host for your snorkeling excursion. We were very impressed with his love for the preservation of the Bahamian coral reefs and sea creatures. He carefully anchors his boat just beyond the reefs, taking care not to disturb the delicate ecosystem. He was very diligent about our safety and guarded our snorkeling area from other sea... More

A perfect day for snorkeling in and around a coral reef in the water off Nassau and Basil was an excellent guide and boat captain. He knew where to go, how to explain to us where to find the coolest fish and reefs. We went to an out-of-the-way place where no one else was snorkeling. It was an amazing day.... More

I don't know where to start. The excursion was great! the guide pointed out where to find a turtle which made my wife's vacation! Wonderful boat ride and learned a lot about the island. Wonderful trip worth every penny! However, Kathy with Blue hold watersports has gone above and beyond... Bigtime. I left my GoPro camera on the boat >.<... More

Went snorkeling with Basil and thoroughly enjoyed the outing. Some of the best coral I've gotten to snorkel over and so many fish to see. Lots of varieties. Loved the fact it was practically a personal tour as I've experienced snorkeling tours with larger groups and it's always a bit too crowded for my liking. For the ultimate snorkeling experience...
