Comments We dived with Bahama Divers (BD) for two days. Their boats are in good shape and handled 12 divers and 3 crew all in shade without crowding. The captain gives a good concise safety briefing. Oxygen and first aid are visible and accessible. The boat has a surface-level platform, so you can take off your rig, hand it up, and then just hop up. I never got a tank with less than 3000 psi and always returned with about 500-700. The dive masters are good guides and found fish we would have missed. At the end of the day, when we started to rinse our gear, the crew politely shooed us to the hotel while they rinsed and stored our gear. The next day, they knew which equipment was ours, and put it on board. Very nice. The videographer, Arnaldo, is also a DM and helped us with everything from identifying fish to entertaining us on board. (No pressure to buy the video.) When all done, the Captain himself drove us to our hotel. Bahama Divers is a good reliable operation.
