Arriving to Nassau, Bahamas
Lynden Pindling International Airport is the central transportation hub. Please obtain detailed base info after booking, if not provided automatically.
Best travel practice: have all of your important documents scanned and forwarded to your email account. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have all the required documentation to enter the country (passport, visa, proof of citizenship, etc).
Please, remember to pack and bring your diving certificates or proof of certification. It is a good idea to double check that you had packed these away. We will require proof of certification before your first dive.
If you require a transfer to/from hotel/airport, we can recommend a local taxi operator that we had used. They are very professional and reliable.
There is no reliable Wi-Fi on board. You may purchase a local SIM card. It will work when the boat is in close proximity to the land. We cannot predict when and how long the signal is avaiable. In general, guests had reported having Wi-Fi 2-3 days out of the journey.
Although the vessel uses sails as a method of propulsion, the primary purpose of the tour is diving. We had experimented
with a trying to insert a sail navigation purpose into the itenerary and guests get very upset if a diving session is missed because sails could not get the vessel to a dive site on time.
You can think of a tour as a diving and cruising with a symbolic make of sail should the conditions permit.
Pack the most important things in your carry-on
Best travel practice: pack all your diving gear: a regulator, mask, fins, swimsuit, as well as a change of clothes, toiletries and any medication you may require in your carry-on luggage. They are never delayed and handled very carefully since you have full control over them.
This also goes for audio/visual equipment - take it with you on a plane. This way you have your basics covered in the event of unscheduled luggage delay.
Important Diving Gear
We recommend having a diving computer, and at least a 3mm wet suit. Water temperature ranges from 26C to 28C, and most drivers prefer to use a 5mm suit, booties, and hood.
Communicating while on board
In case of emergency, travelers will have an option to make a call to any part of the world.
Application & Waiver Form
A standard waiver (release of liability form) is required to be complete before departure. The captain and crew have your safety as number one on their priority list. We want you to have a safe vacation, and have developed various contingency plans to respond rapidly and effectively in the event things don’t go as desired.
Nonetheless, we highly recommend that you purchase comprehensive dive, accident, medical, baggage and trip cancellation insurance. That way you can travel with peace of mind, knowing that you are protected from every angle.
Health & Safety
Vessels has a first aid kit on board and including oxygen. We advise you to bring motion sickness medication, if you feel you require such, in addition to your standard travel medication kit.
The hyperbaric center is located in Nassau, Bahamas.

We reserve the right to change itinerary
We make every possible effort to make sure you have safe and fun holidays. In the event of drastic weather changes (something that is out of human control) itinerary will be adjusted at the sole discretion of the captain if he believes that safety of the guests, crew and vessel is compromised.
