Comments Bring insect repellent. No-seeums at Old Bahamas Bay.

Were not allowed on boat until 4 PM would store luggage on boat while you waited. You can use the facilities at Old Bahamas Bay (pool, restaurant, WiFi in certain areas. Nothing else in the vicinity.


You will go through US customs and immigration in Freeport. Crew warned us not to change cloths in the airport or you may be stopped for questioning. The weather was hot and humid so you may want to bring cloths to change into before you get to the airport depending on what you do before going to airport.

You will need navigation skills to return to boat. There were moderate current on some of the dives. If the currents are above a 6 the crew will not be able to retrieve the mooring.

Sugar Wreck is a 20 foot dive which makes a good night dive and during the day large schools of fish are using the wreck. Shark Paradise had numerous lemon sharks and tiger sharks that come close to divers. The Aggressor lowers a metal container containing fish parts that the sharks are drawn too by the scent but can not feed.
