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

I booked this trip solo based upon reviews and speaking with Judy at Blackbeards. The pre-arranged local shuttle from the airport was convenient and reasonably priced. The crew welcomed me on the boat and helped me settle in. While space on the Morning Star was a little cramped and conditions were akin to camping, the low-cost of the trip made... More

We boarded the boat on Saturday lunchtime and had a great experience right though to Friday morning. From the offset the crew was personal, informative, jovial and professional. Once you board the boat the crew provides you with a wet bin where you can store your personal gear (fins, wet suits ect... ) and a bunk with a shelf where... More
