Located where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea, the Bahamas is an archipelago of around 700 islands on the edge of the world’s third-largest barrier reef. It’s home to deep walls, blue holes and fascinating wrecks, not to mention some of the best shark diving on earth. Its year-round subtropical climate and favorable dive conditions make it the ideal destination for a scuba diving vacation, with a vast range of underwater environments and myriad of marine species to discover.
Water temperatures in the Bahamas range from around 78-84°F (25-28°C) in the summer months and 75 – 80°F (23-26°C) in the winter months, with the water, sometimes dropping to as low as 72°F (22°C) in January. Most divers are comfortable in a 3-5mm wetsuit, keeping in mind you may be doing up to five dives each day, including a night dive.
All diving is conducted from the mother ship’s dive platform, with boarding ladders designed for ease of entry and exit, while a tender is used to take guests on shore excursions during most liveaboard itineraries. There are individual lockers where you can store your gear and two hot, fresh water showers to rinse off after dives. There’s also a camera table with low-pressure air hoses and separate rinse tanks on the dive deck.
Divers can opt to pick a buddy of their choice or dive with one of the crew members, ensuring all diving is within the limits of their certification and no planned decompression dives. Every dive begins with a comprehensive briefing from one of the crew who will also be on hand to offer support as you enter and exit the water, as well as critter spotting underwater.
