Join Instructor John on the 104’ 3-masted sailing/diving vessel for a fun filled week of diving. The schooner conveniently departs from Miami to cross the Florida straits taking you to some of the most unique dive locations the Bahamas have to offer. You and a maximum of 10 other divers will be enjoying a variety of wall and reef divers onboard your private yacht including night dive opportunities.
Best known for the endless visibility, thanks to the white sand and bright sun, the area of the Bahamas we dive is located close to the nutrient-rich currents of the Gulf Stream, which helps to feed the coral and keep the reefs healthy. These reefs are some of the most resilient around; they recover from storms quickly, and can survive a larger range of conditions than most other corals. They provide beautiful, safe shelters for a huge diversity of fish. Bimini is the only area of the Bahamas that can claim the combination of mangroves providing a safe, shallow ecosystem for juveniles of every species to thrive in, and the Gulf Stream-fed reefs to give them a rich and healthy environment to live in as adults. On the edge of the Gulf Stream are beautiful awe-inspiring walls, some starting at only 35′ (11m), some at 80′ (24m), offering dramatic drift dives when the current is running. Closer to shore are shallower patch reefs, some with heads 15′ (5m) tall and loaded with swim-throughs.
