When you return an orientation will be given on emergency procedures and information to ensure you get the fullest enjoyment from of your adventure. We depart Palm Beach Saturday evening for our overnight cruise to 'The Bahama Islands'.
Wake up to breakfast in the beautiful Bahamas. As soon as Bahamas customs and immigration open at 9.00am your captain will get the paperwork completed, soon after we are on our way on our diving trip. This morning we will be heading North to the prime dive sites. Before noon we'll stop around Memory rock at Robin's reef for the first dive. From there we go to colorful Hogfish reef, then to Sugar Wreck for an afternoon and a night dive. We frequently snorkel & dive with large friendly turtles on this ancient wreck. Nighttime we anchor up in a calm safe area for overnight. Stargazing is a wonderful pastime to enjoy during your night
Breakfast around 8:00 am, first dive the Mountains a beautiful 60 to 90 feet dive. From there we might cruise for dolphins. We often come across huge turtles, rays, flying fish, large game fish and other open ocean wonders whilst cruising. When the Spotted Dolphins find us, we watch from the bow for a while, for photos and video. If they stay we get in for a swim. The encounters length is entirely up to the dolphins. The prime dolphin ground is an ocean paradise named 'White Sand Ridge'. The depth here is between 15-30ft(5-10m). The water is crystal clear with a white sandy bottom. From the deck the scenic stripes of turquoise sapphire and azure blue meander across the surface of the ocean. This phenomenal setting adds to the magic of the amazing dolphin encounters. The afternoon would find us at Muriel's Gardens at 40 to 70 feet feeding Caribbean Reef Sharks. The evening might be the Dry Bar a shallow (15ft) reef with turtles and maybe lobsters. At night again we would anchor in calm area.
As yesterday we will do a morning dive probably on Mt Olympias a 60 to 100 feet coral ridge on the edge of a wall. Between the diving and snorkeling you can do a number of fun things. You may choose to relax and conserve energy, for the next stop - our top deck is great for sunbathing. Listen to some music, make new friends, read, watch a documentary, or a movie on video. You may want to try your hand at deep-sea fishing, catch a Tuna or Wahoo great for suishi. You can also savor the delicious meals on board, some mouth watering enjoyable moments Night time, if we're lucky, we may experience a night dolphin encounter, a magical occurrence…The stuff of dreams.
More diving, snorkeling, dolphins, fishing and more. We scuba dive four to five times a day depending on what the group wants. Some groups prefer diving others prefer dolphins and some like fishing. You let us know what you like and we'll make your trip enjoyable.
