(Duval County Springbreak March 8-12)

Most of us have been to The Bahamas in one way or another. But most of us have never been to the true Bahamas. Did you know the Commonwealth of the Bahamas is made up of more than 700 islands? And out of those 700 only 30 are inhabited. Needless to say, The Bahamas are so much more than a cruise ship stop to Nassau or Freeport...or even a family trip to the Atlantis Resort.


When I think of The Bahamas I think of the third-largest barrier reef in the world. I think of warm waters with up to 200 feet of visibility. I think of some of the most remote and pristine dive sites in our hemisphere. I think of a vibrant and thriving marine Eco-system. And I think of beautiful deserted islands waiting to be explored.

That’s what I think of.

Drift Diving in Bahamas!

Your personal invitation from Dan...

Dan and Suzy Mechelke would like to personally invite you to come join us for this awesome and unique adventure as we cruise/dive/explore the beautiful Exuma Cays. We will be sailing out of Nassau for a 7-night all-inclusive adventure on the 102ft. Aqua Cat. The tri-level Aqua Cat offers 11 passenger staterooms with private baths, a spacious dive deck, a main salon for dining & relaxing, a sundeck with panoramic views and an alfresco bar. The Aqua Cat is built for comfort. She is a catamaran style motor yacht with a 35ft. beam and she has some of the largest passenger cabins in the dive live-aboard industry. 


On a personal note…Suzy & I are pumped up to do this trip. I have talked to several people who have sailed the Aqua Cat and I have only heard great feedback and excellent reviews. The boat, crew, service, food and most important…the DIVING are all first rate. And the parent company, All Star Liveaboards has a stellar reputation.

*If we have friendly families traveling together, then these families can have their kids bunk-up together in one of the triple or quad occupancy staterooms (stateroom availability permitting). This way the parents can have privacy in their own staterooms. 


*Single divers can ask us to try to get them buddied up with another single diver to share a stateroom with. This way you both get the double occupancy rate. Please let us know at booking whether or not you want our help with this.
