Comments BREEZES BAHAMAS
I had booked this,for a group of 7 people, to be there during my wife's birthday (she wanted to dive on her birthday). I did not realize that it also involved spring break. Other than a few incidences of loud behavior on our 6th floor after midnight,(lower 3 floors were worse)it was not bad. The food was very good and we had dinner in the two special restaurants three nights. The breakfast, lunch & dinner is buffet style unless you get reservations for the special restaurants. The people working their 6 day work week were very happy and were always courteous.
BAHAMA DIVERS
Booked 4 two tank dives, went on three and canceled the fourth day. The dive masters were very upbeat even though they went to the same spots on a week by week schedule. Morning two tank dives went to 6 predetermined locations repeating the Blue Hole twice a week. Our best dive was at three wrecks, the water was rough the entrance was difficult due to pitching & rolling of the dive boat, once in the water and at depth of 96' at the bottom there was no current and the dive went smooth. Very difficult getting on to the dive ladder because of the rough seas, but once in the boat we had a short surface time then back into the water for the shallow dive (about 20').
I would not recommend the diving around Nassau when there are other places to dive in the Bahamas that are much better. It is not the fault of the dive operation that they only have a few spots to dive.
