Comments March 28 Bahama Divers in Nassau, Bahamas
First dive time limit 30 minutes and 80 feet. Must stay with dive master as a group. Second dive after about 25 minute surface interval to small reef at about 30 foot bottom.
There was no formal check out or check in system. The crew did a head count.
The dive destinations are predetermined each day. The day I went was to a little blue hole. Visibility was at least 80 feet, and there were 4 different kinds of shark swimming in the vicinity. There was little coral and few fish. The second dive (20'-30') had a nice coral head jutting about a sandy bottom. Visibility was about 50'. We were assigned buddies and were on our own.
I felt uncomfortable with the lack of recorded system for accounting for divers. Also, even though the second dive was shallow (it could have been a snorkel site.) the surface interval between dives is the shortest I have ever experienced.
If you want drinks or snacks between dives, bring your own.
There was no facilities for cameras.
