Bahamas Roundup thumbnail

What I Did: A seven night liveaboard trip to the Exuma Cays and Eluethera as well as three nights in Nassau (New Providence Island) Overall: The Bahamas might not be the most exotic or exciting destination I’ve traveled to, but the friendly people, the beautiful islands and the amazing accessibility make for one great vacation.

Goodbye Bahamas: Back to The Atlantis Resort thumbnail

It was my last day and night in the Bahamas and Mark and I still had our casino winnings burning a hole in our backpacks. We talked about putting it towards a plane ticket for him to visit me, or splitting it and putting it in our saving ($360 goes a long way in South East…

The benefits include time to travel to more distant dive sites, companionship of other divers and in the case of Blackbeard’s Cruises, a significant savings in cost.
