• Welcome to our 700 islands. Please let me welcome you with a genuine hug and a smile!!!! Yes, as you may have guessed, that’s where the name Smiling Pat’s Freeport Adventures comes from. My name is Patricia (Pat) Hoyte, and I always shave a smile on my face. I am indeed a "people's person."

    I am the oldest daughter of a well-known musician known as "Little Sparrow." My father and brothers make steel pans in Freeport, Bahamas, and they also play for weddings and private parties. As for my mother and brothers, they create wonderful arts and crafts, by hand, which can be seen at my store in Port Lucaya.

    I personally host all of my tours, so I guess that makes me "the Boss." I spent over 15 years working for other tour companies. Then, about 8 years ago, I made the leap of faith and started my own company. Today, it’s more than obvious that I truly love what I do, and I’m proud to share and show off the rich cultural history of my island, as well as the natural beauty that sets Grand Bahama apart from the rest of the pack.
