Liveaboard Diving Operators in the Bahamas"Liveaboard diving differs from land-based operations in its convenience and intensity. The ocean is literally your back yard, only a few paces from the boat's salon. Virtually all travel time is eliminated, thus enabling as many as five (or even more) dives per day.
There is no lugging of gear to the boat for a day's dive. There is no hour-long boat ride to a dive site followed by an hour-long ride to return. There are no shopping trips, restaurant choices, and taxi cabs.
Diving is generally regarded as "unlimited" with only general schedules as the boat moves from site to site throughout the day. Tanks are refilled much faster than they are used.
After you board the Sea Dragon, you'll spend your time diving, eating, sleeping, and engaging in low-key shipboard entertainment (e.g., reading, conversation, napping, slide shows, board games). A typical day includes four to five dives on a total of four or more dive sites (more if you can find the time).
Sea Dragon diving is great for divers who can run their own dive profiles and wish general overviews of dive sites before they enter the water and explore on their own." - Sea Dragon Liveaboard

|June||78F-80F 26C||During June through october, most people wear a "shorty" 3/16 (5mm) or a 3 mil.Wetsuits are a very personal thing. Wehn you learn to dive you dont even think about the cold but when you teach scuba diving or divemaster then you seem to feel the cold more.|
The nearest chamber is in Nassau to serve any diving accident. We would recommend that you dive safely in the limits recommended by your training and check that the dive boat always carries Oxygen ! This is one of the biggest factors that can save you in the event of a diving related accident.
