Must do - amazing experience
, Jan 2022
Pearl island is beautiful. It’s a private island so isn’t very crowded, the water is crystal clear blue, insanely beautiful. The best part about this trip was the people; from our boat captain to Snorkel instructor to the chef who cooked the food - each and every person was so amazing and helpful. Food was great. Snorkel was awesome too.
Best tour ever
, Dec 2021
The tour was so well planned. The team made sure everyone got to and from Pearl Island safely. They were fun, kind, informative, and organized. Pearl Island is breath-taking. So much to do and very reasonably priced too.
Good time had by all!
, Dec 2021
Great family day trip. Excellent customer service from start to finish. Reasonably priced with lunch included. Can’t beat that! Island was clean and staff was patient with first time kayakers and snorkelers.
Beautiful place to go!
, Dec 2021
The food was awesome as was the location. Really like the tour guide on the trip back to Nassau and all of the information about Nassau he was able to tell us.
Great little island!
, Dec 2021
The island was small enough to be able to experience everything we wanted, but big enough that we had plenty of space to spread out from other people. It was a short boat ride over then free to do what ever we wanted with a scheduled buffet lunch and snorkel. The lunch was great. Only wish was the snorkeling didn't require a life vest, but understand why it does.
Great excursion
, Dec 2021
This was a great excursion and run really well. You got to do some introductory snorkeling and spent a lot of time on the beach doing water activities. It’s a beautiful island. Overall, I would highly recommend.

Snorkeling was off the...
, Dec 2021
Snorkeling was off the shore where very Rocky and rough waters. Had to pay extra for a shaded cabana. Not enough cayaks. I was going to get on a cayac and a tour guide took it away to give to a cabana renter. That was rude. Lunch was just OK. One good thing I can say is boat guides very friendly and informative.
Unorganized, not worth the money
, Nov 2021
Very unorganized, snorkeling was cancelled because of the rough waves that day, but they didn’t tell us until we got to the island. We understand these things happen, but we wouldn’t have gone if told ahead of time.
Great Mixture of Sun & Sea
, Oct 2021
Weather was perfect and the crew was great fun. Captain Brady was accommodating and had the music playing while we enjoyed the boat ride to Pearl Island. The freedom to enjoy the different activities while waiting on the assigned snorkeling times was a nice touch. There is a beautiful lighthouse to tour and take pictures from the top. Multiple areas for sun bathing and lawn chairs. The lunch was 5 stars !!! Rice and beans with chicken and fish... Soo Freaking Good.
Spectacular experience Amazing staff
, Aug 2021
Super spectacular experience!! The snorkeling was amazing and we even got to see a sting ray! The drinks were all made very well and the island is beautiful. You are free to do what you want with no set schedule which is awesome. The staff is amazing and I cannot say that enough. Everyone is super friendly and one man even went snorkeling for our sunglasses that fell off... and he found them. Overall one of the best days we had in the Bahamas and we will 100% do it again.
