When you're considering your options for liveaboard scuba diving in the Caribbean, the Bahamas and her Out Islands offer a distinct blend of international glamour and tropical ease.
The islands and cays sprawl across nearly 100,000 square miles of ocean, beginning at the northern point east of Palm Beach, Florida and spanning practically 750 miles to the southeast where they come inside 50 miles of Cuba and Haiti.
The West End area is rarely visited by guests and is home to many creatures – both large (sharks and dolphins) and small (grouper, snapper, assorted other reef fish). At least one afternoon during the trip will be dedicated to a dive at the area known as "Tiger Beach". Both Caribbean Reef sharks, Lemon Sharks and Tiger sharks are known to frequent the area.
Aggressor Adventures offers 3 Bahamas itineraries: Exuma Cays departs from Nassau to explore the dramatic walls, lush coral reefs and exciting animal encounters, West End Northern Adventure departs from Freeport and explores the west end of Grand Bahama and continues south to Bimini, and Tiger Beach visits the remote areas around the West End of Grand Bahama and Tiger Beach which is frequented by Caribbean Reef Sharks, Lemon Sharks and Tiger Sharks.
Water temperature: 78-84F, 25-28C (summer months) 75–80F, 24-27C (winter months, with possible 72F, 22C drop in January)
3-5 mm wetsuit recommended
