Itinerary Overview

On a typical day we offer up to 4 day dives, however, the 4th day dive may be substituted for a night dive when the boat is anchored within a lagoon. A 7-night itinerary provides for between 18-20 dives, whilst during our 10-night itineraries, up to 30 dives will be possible. The diving day aboard the Bahamas Master is scheduled as follows:

  • Light Breakfast followed by a briefing and Dive 1
  • Full Breakfast, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 2
  • Lunch, relaxation period, briefing and Dive 3
  • Snack relaxation period, briefing and Dive 4, where possible
  • Dinner
  • On some itineraries, such as Tiger Beach itineraries, there is an open platform policy where guests can jump in the water and watch the action as the mood takes them. Guests may also take the opportunity to visit the islands and walk upon the pristine beaches.

Dive Overview

Dive sites vary between specific shark diving spots on sandy bottoms and 'regular' reef diving. Currents are not the norm in the Bahamas but it is recommended scuba divers have experience beyond beginner level to ensure maximum enjoyment, especially with the nature of the wildlife in the area. The climate of the Bahamas is a tropical savannah climate, with temperatures averaging between 25 and 32C (77-90F) all year round, with a light cooling down in the evening. Water temperatures range from 22°C in January and 28°C (72-84°F) in August. Most guests are comfortable diving in a 3mm or 5mm full wetsuit.

Bahamas Master liveaboard, Nov 2019. Fantastic trip to a premium destination if you are looking for shark diving. We spent 10 days at Tiger Beach & had tiger sharks every dive & Patches, the great hammerhead, for at least 80%. Plus so many lemon, reef & nurse sharks & even a few bulls. TB is a photographer's dream!! Bahamas Master dive liveaboard is functional, not as luxurious as the Siren Fleet, but well laid out & perfectly fine. Spacious outdoor areas, including sundeck & dining area. Camera room is a little small if there are a lot of photographers but manageable if everyone is considerate. Crew was fantastic - super friendly, helpful & enthusiastic!! And the vegan food was amazing!! They also have more diverse itineraries for those who find it boring to spend 10 days sitting on the bottom photographing sharks but if that's your thing, this is a perfect trip!!
