Comments This was a custom 14 day trip which visited Long ,Conception,and San Salvador islands along with Rum Cay..the Sea Dragon is a boat specifically built for diving. Capital Dan is very experienced knows the waters and dive sites perfectly. The diving in the Bahamas is good but you need plenty of dive time to scope out its treasures. There are some great walls with cracks and tunnels for interest.Many patch reefs and coral heads with good but not great fish life. You need to search carefully for the good stuff but it is there. Dove the Southamton wreck 1813? With cannons encrusted with coral. The food on this trip was excellent thanks Sue! The only downside were spartan accommodations and two heads for 8 people even though all did work out well with no problems. Tim and Josh were very good at the dive deck and gave any assistance desired. You dived on your own no dive masters in the water. The group were all very good experienced divers so this was not an issue. A very good trip.
