My husband and I went with our daughter, her husband and our 5 year old granddaughter. The granddaughter had a great time. This is a perfect attraction for kids age 3 and up. If they are younger they will probably not enjoy the noise, crowd or the sun. I saw many babies on the cruise and they definitely were not... More

What a week of diving around the Exumas. Great dive sites. The crew was awesome very helpful. The food was excellent.All the people on board were great everybody got along, had lots of laughs. Ran into pilot whales and the captain followed them for a while so we could take some pictures. Great trip will go again.

If you want to dive as much as possible in a great location and don't mind sacrificing most of your personal space, this is the trip for you. The Exumas are great for diving or just enjoying. The cost is less than other dive weeks we have done. We were on the Sea Explorer, one of two identical sloops. The... More

This was both my first liveaboard trip, and diving experience after being certified. The crew and fellow passengers were an absolute blast. Being on a boat with 20+ people who all want the same experience really made getting to know everyone and breaking the ice easy. Not only were the crew a great resource for knowledge of the sites and... More

Rock star crew got down to the nuts and bolts of diving. Food was fantastic and all the extra exploration turned this into a real Bahamas adventure. We will defiantly be back.

Blackbeard's Cruises out of Nassau, Bahamas, is a sure way to have a great time diving. The dive sites are spectacular, and the crew ensures that you have the best possible experience. We did some wall dives, a drift dive, night dives, shark feeding, and a blue hole. The memories from this trip will keep us going until our next... More

This is a cruise for those that simply want to log some bottom time. The quarters are cramped but you are fed fairly well and the diving is excellent.
