Bahamas Master

Bahamas Master boat 1 lr opt

Bahamas Master is a 115-foot (35 meter) liveaboard which accommodates 18 guests. She offers 3 itineraries taking avid divers to the best of the Bahamas shark diving.

A word from Dom:  "The Bahamas gained an ocean-worthy vessel with the move of the former Yemaya from Malpelo to the Bahamas.  She's made for adventure divers and her itineraries will take you to dive with tigers, lemons, great hammerheads, oceanic white tips and bull sharks ... as well as some of the "milder' side of the Bahamas.  Don't hesitate to contact me about the vessels diving Bahamas waters.  Each of them suits different divers.

 TRAVEL & CRUISE LOGISTICS


We recommend guests spend a night in the Bahamas before cruise departure. Embarkation will be at 5 pm. Disembarkation at the end of the cruise will be just before 10 am. If you are not remaining in the Bahamas for additional nights after your cruise, please allow plenty of time for the transfer to the airport and for check-in.

Scheduled dives are baited or feeding dives. On certain dive sites, after the scheduled dives, there is an open deck policy where guests can jump in the water and watch the action as the mood takes them. Dive sites are mainly specific shark diving spots on sandy bottoms. On scheduled dives, the divers are lined up in the sand to watch the shark action.   Currents and swells are the norm in the Bahamas, notably around Tiger Beach. It is therefore recommended that divers have experience beyond beginner level to ensure maximum enjoyment, especially with the nature of the wildlife in the area.
