What To Expect

Following pickup at your hotel in Nassau, transfer to the marina and board the powerboat for an adventurous day exploring some less-visited Bahamian islands. 

Stop at Allen's Cay to see the population of endangered rock iguanas. A closely monitored population, the successful breeding program has left the tiny island with more than 1,000 iguanas for you to feed and photograph. 

Back on board your powerboat, the captain will hit the gas and you'll fly off toward Ship Channel Cay. The island is just 2 miles (3km) long and a half-mile (1km) wide, affording great views of the sea in every direction. 

Stroll the shores or make use of the complimentary snorkel equipment to explore the undersea world. Float over coral reefs, see tiny fish feeding on the underwater plant life or feed the local stingrays and sharks with your guide.

Grab a drink from the island bar, then dig into a lunch of island grouper, salads, bread, chargrilled steak and tropical fruit platters.Observe the preparation of a fresh Bahamian conch salad, a staple dish in the Bahamas, then taste the results.

At the conclusion of your day exploring, return to Nassau for drop-off at your hotel.

They book entirely to many people for this attraction. Two boat full of 50 people. Sitting around waiting your turn got old fast. There are a couple other companies doing the same trip......try them!!

It is great for creating jobs
Chay M, Jul 2019
I am happy to say the island was beautiful, food was amazing, staff was top notch. The interactions were very sad to watch, too many people and too many hungry animals waiting to be fed. I would pay this and more just for the boat ride, staff, knowledge one on one I had with guides about particular animals, plants, and facts about the people than interacting with animals who deserve to be natural in their habitat. I understand that tourist are attracted to exploiting animals for photo memories so this makes sense for an interactive experience. It would be nicer for people to be able to just be bystanders. But that is just me. I enjoyed my experience of letting the island be itself and witnessing it for what it is without having to disrupt it too much.

We had such an amazing time. The staff was friendly and very helpful. There was plenty of food and drinks. The pigs were awesome too! My favorite part was the making of the conch salad.
This powerboat adventure is a must if you visit the Bahamas

Christopher B, Aug 2018
Remon was very helpful with the snorkeling, answered all our questions, and took care of everything. The trip was tons of fun. The iguanas was the the first stop and great to see and feed. Very cute. We then moved on to Exuma island. All the activities were fantastic, well run, and fun for all ages. Snorkeling, sharks, rays, and pigs were fun. The food was good too. A previous review said no one was keeping an eye out of for the sharks. This was not true. There was always someone keeping an eye out and had a long metal pole to keep the sharks away. Once the feeding of the sharks was done, they moved into another area near the dock, but did not cause any problems while we were there. We relaxed and had a great day! Thank you!
Excellent way to spend a day!
Annette_S, Jul 2018
Crew well versed in seamanship and skills to facilitate snorkeling, learning about iguanas, pigs, sharks and manta rays. Food was well prepared and drinks flowing smoothly, either alcoholic or soft. All in all a wonderful way to spend a day in the Bahamas!!!

This really was a lot of fun! It was just as described. The team at Powerboat Adventures were very professional and the food was great! Just a small suggestion: be sure to bring your own beach towels.

Melissa R, Jan 2018
My boyfriend and I enjoyed our exuma powerboat adventure. We were taken by boat to the beautiful exuma cays with crystal clear blue water where we had the chance to snorkel, feed iguanas, and stingrays. We also enjoyed the shark show and the fresh made buffet of salads, steak, and fish. The reason we gave three stars is because we saw opportunities for improved safety precautions and procedures. For example, we noticed that while swimming in the water no one was surveying the water for sharks. A staff member should be designated on the shore with a whistle to warn swimmers of sharks and/or spots in which they should not be swimming. Women should also be instructed to remove jewelry prior to entering the water. A safe experience is a fun experience. Safety should be made the 1 priority for this tour group.

Michael M, Nov 2017
Fantastic! Incredible! A day we will never forget. Beautiful isolated island, great food and drinks. Sharks, stingrays and many beautiful fish. Make sure you are a good swimmer as the current in the channel that you will snorkel in is fairly strong and swift. The powerboat was a fantastic way to travel. Kudos to our hosts who took great care of other customers who were a bit irresponsible with their drinking. A great time. We would do it again if we are ever in Nassau!

Naomi L, Aug 2017
Everything about this tour was pretty good, the iguana feeding was cool, the stingrays and sharks are interesting. Very nice beach and open bar was great. The problem we had was the boat ride. It was very long over an hour each way and seemed to be oversold, there were not enough seats on the boat for all of the passengers. We did not have seats on the ride back that were shaded so it was extremely hot and uncomfortable. The crew was very nice.

Jodi M, Jul 2017
This excursion was by far the best we have ever been on. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable. The hour boat ride for some might be long but for my 2 boys 11 and 17 it was perfect! The private island is just stunning and the lunch was delicious. The experiences on the island were very hands on. It was worth every penny.

Kari Z, Apr 2017
First off I have to thank the Powerboat Adventures folks for understanding that I was caught in the Delta cancelled flights mess and arrived in Nassau a day late and they graciously moved us to a tour the next day and didn't charge me any change or cancellation fee. Such great customer service especially at a time when my whole vacation had gone haywire. This tour is worth every penny! Such great fun. Great crew. Very easy going and knowledgeable. Absolutely loved it all. The next time I go to Nassau I'm definitely booking this again. If you're going to Nassau this is not to be missed.

Stephen P, Jan 2017
Great trip in every respect. We went on this trip primarily because it was already so highly rated. The ride to and from the island was great and a nice break from normal beach sitting, you can get either sun or shade. Feeding the iguanas was very cool, then on the private island, the feeding of the rays and the shark action was excellent. At the island is a great fresh lunch, and open bar. The crew is very professional and personable, they want to make sure you have a great time, and we did. Highly recommended as a day tour!!!
