Blackbeard’s Cruises offers liveaboard scuba diving vacations to the Bahamas Out Islands. We offer the Caribbean’s largest variety of diving including shark dives, walls, high-speed drift dives including the Washing Machine, night dives, blue holes and the beautiful coral reefs of the Exumas Land & Sea Park. Blackbeard’s Cruises 65′ sailboats depart Nassau, Bahamas every Saturday for a week of liveaboard diving in the Exumas, SW Eleuthera & Little San Sal in the Central Bahamas. The camaraderie and adventure on our liveaboard dive trips keep divers coming back year after year. Our motto is “Twice the Fun for Half the Price”….you won’t get a better bang out of your diving dollar anywhere else in the Caribbean!  Blackbeard’s is only $995 for a one week all inclusive liveaboard dive vacation

Dive the Caribbean’s largest underwater park, the Exumas Land & Sea Park. Divers can experience deep sea diving on the many beautiful walls. Sharks are a big draw for divers! See Caribbean reef sharks, nurse sharks, even tiger sharks on the sandy banks! Colorful reefs teeming with marine life sit in depths of 15- 80 feet so divers of all levels enjoy the scuba diving we offer on our Bahamas scuba diving vacations!  These dive sites are only reached by scuba diving liveaboards.

The central Bahamas were once the hideout of pirates and privateers… now, these islands offer spectacular diving in warm, crystal clear waters with deserted beaches as backdrop each week during our adventure travel vacations. Visit Allen’s Cay to feed the iguanas.

There is no set itinerary- we go where conditions and weather are the best to offer our divers an adventure of a lifetime! Scuba liveaboards offer the best variety of diving available- dive with sharks at Amberjack Reef, watch eagle rays gracefully glide by the walls, get tumbled around on our high speed drift dive, the Washing Machine or shoot photos of all the great macro and micro shots you’ll see in the gin clear water of the Bahamas.

Blackbeard’s Cruises is recognized by divers as one of the best liveaboard experiences available year after year!

Scuba diving travel with us is a breeze! Our all-inclusive scuba diving liveaboard vacations are popular with outgoing individuals from all over the world! We supply everything but your personal gear and towels.

Blackbeard’s Cruises offers top of the line high-quality rental gear for those who require it. Our sailboats, the Sea Explorer & Morning Star carry up to 22 passengers in dormitory style bunks. While there isn’t a lot of privacy, the fun, adventure camaraderie and more than makes up for it.

Happy Travelers

We know how important your hard earned vacation is to you. You want to come home wishing it would never end. Our staff works hard from beginning to end to make this whole experience one you will remember when you are sitting on your rocker someday reminiscing about the good old days.

It’s nice to hear from you when we make your vacation super special. Thanks for the kudos!

I am not over my vacation yet from July and I’m still feeling the positive effects of the trip.  I don’t feel like I went on a vacation, I went on an experience.  This once in a lifetime trip is going to become twice, three times, …maybe more!

The shark dive was one of the best experiences of my life. Jason was so professional and made us feel so safe, and then Anders diving down with the chum IN A SHARK COSTUME made the start of the experience so awesome.

Just got back from a cruise with you guys. Best trip of my life. Will be back with my son next year. I would personally like to thank the crew for the outstanding job they did for me.

The washing machine was a great dive for most of our group. In my 15 years of diving, I’ve only had a few dives that made me want to give high fives when I surfaced. This was one of them!
