Join Us for a Fun and Exciting Week Exploring and Scuba Diving the Bahamas!

Join Dan’s Dive Shop as we enjoy another wonderful Bahamas Blackbeards Sail & Dive Liveaboard dive vacation.

Dan’s Dive Shop has chartered the entire sail boat with Blackbeard’s Cruises and put together a Hassle-Free All Inclusive Package for our divers that includes airfare, transfers, diving, meals and hotel.

On this trip you will spend 7 days/ 6 nights living aboard a 65 ft sail boat exploring the Exumas and Andros Islands. You can do up to 19 dives including night dives, wall dives, drift dives, a shark dive and maybe even diving a blue hole! In between dives there are opportunities to visit remote islands, snorkel or just relax on the deck with the Bahamian sun and breeze.        

Dan’s has been diving on Blackbeard’s since the 1980s! Since our first trip in January 1987 over 250 divers have joined us on board for an unforgettable Bahama’s adventure. Great Diving, Great Value and Great Fun is the reason we keep going back for 35 years. This is an experience you don’t want to miss!

The boat departs the next day from the Nassau Harbour Club where you will spend the next 6 nights / 7 days aboard a 65 ft sailboat doing up to 19 dives and exploring the Exuma Islands. All diving, food and beverages will be provided while at sea.

After an epic week at sea, you will disembark in the morning and head to the airport for your flight home.


The Exuma Cays are under Land and Sea Park sanctions. Because of these laws, there are miles of undersea gardens in which coral, sponges and fish abound. Turtles, rays and sharks are seen regularly on most dive sites. The depths normally range from 20 feet to 120 feet. Water Temperatures in October are 78-82 / 26-28. 3mm-5mm full wetsuit recommended.

The dives offered on Blackbeard’s are unescorted. The crew on board will give you an in depth briefing before each dive describing the conditions, the current, depth, and it will include a visual aide.

Diving includes up to 19 dives and minimum Advanced Certification recommended. Take your PADI Advanced Course in the Bahamas with our DDS Instructor onboard. Add your PADI Advanced Course for only $350 CDN including PADI eLearning and digital certification card.


Blackbeards Liveaboard is often referred to as camping at sea. The boat is comfortable, the diving is great and the food is delicious. But the accommodations, washrooms and living spaces are all shared spaces in bunk beds. Blackbeard’s is the Best Value Liveaboard in the Caribbean and if you are looking for an adventure this trip is for you. Learn more about the boat here.
