How much spending money do I need?

You will need spending money for an evening ashore (shopping, drinks, souvenirs) and crew gratuity (10-15% is customary). You might note some of the smaller Bahamas Out Islands do not accept major credit cards. The currency of the Bahamas is the Bahamian Dollar which is on par with the U.S. dollar and is used inter-changeably. We accept Visa, MC, and Discover for scuba/specialty courses, boutique charges, and crew tip.
