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.

We enjoyed this cruise with friends last week on a visit to Destin. We saw some dolphins before ever leaving the inlet but that was about it for the rest of the cruise. The drinks were free and always available. This is a sailboat and there were quite a few people onboard for our cruise so seating was limited and... More

We went on the cruise with 24 people from our dive shop and had a blast! The crew of the Sea Explorer Red, Carlis, Tim, Clancy, & Sam were great and super helpful! The food was wonderful and they made sure that we never ran out of rum punch! The diving was terrific with lots of beautiful wall dives, shallow... More

Had a great time with my two daughters ages 4 and 7. The crew interacted well with the kids. They made sure the parents were entertained with plenty of beverages both adult and non. They even went around asking if you wanted pictures taken. They had water guns for the kids as well as face painting and a real live... More

We booked a charter for 17 adult and youth from our Boy Scout Troop. The crew was nothing short of incredible! At the beginning of trip we planned the week to include wall dives, reef dives, drift dives, night dives and the final dive in the blue hole while the sharks were there! The food was fabulous thanks to Alex.... More
