Overview

Bay West Adventures conception was created by Captain Samuel T. Hoffer whom is an avid fisherman and entrepreneur. Our team consists of four individuals who include Captain Sam and Captain Timmy. We are a small family owned business with a growing clientele that caters to each party/individual whom is looking for their own private and exclusive Boat Tour. Our team of captains are born and raised in the Bahamas with over 20years of boating and diving experience in the oceans of the Bahamas. Boating and free diving with snorkeling equipment is our hobby which we all did during weekdays and weekends in every part of the ocean off the coast of Nassau Bahamas and other family islands. We all know many diving spots and sights that other Boat Tour companies in the Bahamas do not know We are the most personable and accommodating Boat Tour Company in the Bahamas our trip advisor, and facebook likes/comments back it up.

Sam was great! Couldn’t have asked for better service and tour. We ended up being the only ones on the boat, which was a plus. My family highly recommends this tour.

Captain Sam and Tyler were great! Highly recommend spending your time in Nassau with them. This was our 6th cruise and by far our favorite excursion. They made sure even our less adventurous teens had a great time too. Thank you! We will be back.

We spent a wonderful afternoon with Capt. Sam and Tyler. As stated in previous reviews, they provided an awesome tour of the Bahamas from the water. A great day of snorkeling, swimming with turtles, diving for sea biscuits and enjoying the beach.
