We just returned from a trip to the Exuma's. William and CJ from Roberts were awesome. They provided us with a fun trip to pig beach and the grotto showing us various sites along the way including mile long beach, the sharks, the homes of various celebrities and a few other fun stops. They were prompt, took care in making sure we got on and off the boat safely, made us a few drinks, gave some safety tips at pig beach and really just took good care of us throughout the day. We can't say enough and would not hesitate to use them again.

We had a wonderful day with Robert while on vacation to Exuma last month. Our family has used him numerous times over the years and have always enjoyed our days with him! He is very friendly, polite, and honest. I ALWAYS feel very safe with him. He was born and raised on the island, so knows every great place to visit while on the boat. Definitely recommend him!

Robert and his crew made our day exploring the Cays of The Bahamas a wonderful experience. He covered all the bases: swimming pigs, iguanas, nurse sharks, sand bar, celebrity homes, and even took us to a secluded cove to find some sea turtles. We had yummy snacks and drinks on board, and everyone had a great time! It was a wonderful way to see the Cays and animals in their natural habitat. We really loved Angelo - a true islander!! Thanks so much, would highly recommend!

I researched like a crazy woman on the best tour to swim with the pigs. We wanted to do a full day tour vs. the half day which most half days are the same price. Another important factor is we wanted to go to the REAL, original cay with the swimming pigs. Some places are taking you to the copy cat. So beware of that. After speaking with Rebecca through email I finally decided on Roberts Island Adventures and boy was I glad we did! Communication and booking via email was effortless. It almost seemed too easy that I felt I’d forget something. Re-confirmed once we were at the resort and everything was good. Transportation is included and our driver was right on time. Already down waiting for us when we got there. We arrived at the docks and had to wait just a short time because the water was so choppy that day. We were assured once we got past a certain point it would be much better. And it was! Our captain was none other than Mr. Robert himself. Robert was friendly and of course extremely knowledgeable and well experienced on the water he’s grown up on. He literally showed us everything listed and more I felt. Ironically, swimming with the sharks (which I swore I was not going to do) was the highlight of our day, as well as the beautiful sand bar. And all I had originally cared about was the pigs. So just know there is way more than just that. Which will make your tour unforgettable. We loved just cruising around on the boat in general all day. He’s very safe and boat VERY WELL maintained. We are boat people so just being on the boat cruising around was fun for us. We didn’t get to see Thunderball Grotto because the tide was too high and the water very choppy right there so it was unsafe. Which I appreciate and that just goes to show how experienced of a captain he is. He’d never put you in danger. His boat had comfortable seating and was not over packed like I hear of some of the competitors. We probably had room for several more and I think there were about 9 guests maybe. We sat in the back behind the captain and I recommend getting back there when you first get on. It’s the best seat in the house. Kind of like our own tour. There were plenty of beverages, beer and the most amazing drink I’ve ever had. I believe is was called Goombay Smash. They had little mini sandwiches to snack on and the lunch we went to was delicious as well. I forgot the name, but it was at Black point, Exuma. A special shout out to Roberts assistant, Angelo or G-Lo! We hung out with him on the back of the boat the whole time, he got us drinks and told us about everything we went passed or stopped at. Great conversation and laughs, it was like hanging out with your friends all day in the most beautiful setting imaginable. It’s unfortunate sometimes the bigger companies are rated higher on here. Don’t go off that alone. Book your tour with Roberts Island Adventures and you won’t be disappointed. Don’t forget to give him a review either so we can get him to that #1 spot where he deserves to be!!!! Thanks to Robert and his whole team for making an unforgettable experience for us!!!!

Thank you for sharing the experience you had with Robert's Island Adventures. I will be sure to let Rebecca and Angelo know they did an excellent job.
Many people come on the tours specifically for the swimming pigs but find there are so many more interesting sights than just those piggies, ie the nurse sharks and the sandbar.
We do try to make our tours as comfortable as possible and I think we succeeded in making you all feel like family and friends in a safe and clean environment. We take pride in the work we do and are always grateful to read of the time our guests had with us. Thank you once again, we hope to see you next time you're in Exuma.

Super fun day with Captain Robert and his crew!!!! From the beginning, Rebecca was spot on with email communication!!! Taxi picked us up from our lodging and drove us to the boat on time - thankfully, because it wouldn’t have been that easy to find.

It was everything and more than we expected!!!! Comfortable boat, with a super friendly Captain and crew!!! Antoinette, provided Goombay smash drinks along the way, and always counted the members on the boat to keep track of us. We chatted with Angelo along the way, who was phenomenal!!!!! We have been on many excursions over the years, and Angelo is at the top!! Super friendly and knowledgable guy, and always tuned in to any questions we had!! We had an awesome day!!!!! Don’t forget to apply sunscreen
