The Sea Dragon is an ideal venue for eight serious divers to pursue the underwater beauty found throughout the Exuma Cays. Four air-conditioned staterooms each house two divers in separate beds along with all their non-diving gear.

The R/V Sea Dragon is operated by Out-Island Oceanics, Inc. and is fully equipped to provide a comfortable working platform for eight divers for diving and oceanographic research in remote areas. Underwater exploration is facilitated by the use of SCUBA and such persons should be adequately trained. All charters are custom-tailored to fit the group involved. Eight guests is the maximum, but an additional organizer may be accommodated as part of the crew. The maximum number of persons per trip is limited to nine.

Out Island Oceanics, Inc. has offered dive excursions to the Exuma Cays since 1972. Captains Dan Doyle and Sue Ford owned and operated the 70' Dragon Lady , which was sold in 1978. Subsequently the R/V Sea Dragon was designed from scratch and custom built in 1980 as an ideal liveaboard dive boat.

The Sea Dragon carries two tanks for each diver. Two 9 cfm Bauer compressors push air into staging tanks for quick, high quality fills for the unlimited diving aboard the boat. Since the boat is anchored on the reef, no time is wasted moving equipment to and from the shore or chase boat.

Each diver is assigned a large private storage bin for their gear. These bins are often located directly underneath the diver's tanks, which makes quick and easy donning and doffing of gear. All bins are within 15 feet of an ocean entry.

A large dive platform built into the stern enables divers to exploit two separate ladders for easy entry and exit.

Each day's diving includes four different dive sites and anywhere from four to six diving opportunities. Night dives are available almost every night.

All expenses for food, fuel, water, dockage, and consumables (including soft drinks and beer) are covered by the daily charter rate.

The Sea Dragon has a complete crew, including the cook who prepares three excellent American-style meals each day.

Cold soft drinks and beer are available free of charge 24 hours/day. Of course, diving is disallowed for the rest of any day for any diver who imbibes.

Accommodations include four double cabins with space for personal items and clothing; crew's quarters are separate. The main deck has a raised wheelhouse, specious main salon, and a fully-equipped galley. An upper deck features sunning and observation.

Here are the specs for the Sea Dragon:

  • 65 feet (20 m) long
  • 18 foot (5.5 m) beam
  • Separate wheelhouse with radar, Loran, GPS, autopilot, VHF Radio, SSB radio, cellular telephone, three fathometers

Full Service PADI 5 Star IDC center and Tec center
Go Pro Caribbean is located on the tropical paradise Island of Roatan in the western Caribbean. We are located in the Bay Islands of Honduras. Known as the cheapest place in the world to dive. We are a PADI 5 Star IDC center offering courses from Open Water all the way to Staff Instructor. The West End of Roatan has managed to keep its Caribbean charm thanks to its size, whilst other parts of the island have been developed quickly targeting cruise ship and short term vacationers, the West End still feels like it hasn't changed in 20 years. The road is still sand, with rickety wooden buildings on one side and beautiful white sand beaches on the other, lazy days off can be spent in the palm covered beach bars with the whole place just a 10 minute walk from one end to the other. Combining this with access to an international airport and many other attractions as well as decent supermarkets in the larger towns at the other end of the Island, Roatan can certainly claim to be the Bay Island which has it all!

Direct Flights from the United States (Houston, Atlanta) and Europe make Coconut Tree Divers the most convenient budget Caribbean destination out there. Also the home to Roatan Tec Team anyone interested in learning Tec diving or becoming a tec instructor need look no further. Our deep walls, perfect year round dive conditions and the deep wreck of the Josie J are a Trimix divers dream. The Divemaster Internships and Instructor development course are taught by experienced Course Director Will Welbourn who is also the Tec Instructor trainer. The IDC is offered every month an IE scheduled in the Bay Islands every month making us both flexible and well practiced ensuring a first time pass for everyone in the last two years.

The Path to becoming a PADI Pro starts with the Open Water course:

Throughout the course, you’ll learn fundamentals of scuba diving, including dive equipment and techniques, through knowledge development instruction in our large, air-conditioned classroom. This knowledge is then applied in the confined water training session, where you begin practicing the skills necessary for for safe diving. Finally, you participate in four open water dives, exploring all the fun and fish our beautiful reef has to offer at a maximum depth of 18 meters/60 feet.

Followed by the Advanced Open water course:
This certification includes five Adventure Dives, including the Deep Adventure Dive, the Underwater Navigator Adventure Dive, and your choice of three of the following: Digital Underwater Photographer, Wreck Diver, Drift Diver, Night Diver,• Peak Performance Buoyancy,• Search and Recovery Diver,• Underwater Naturalist, Videographer,• Boat Diver, Fish ID.

Many people describe the Rescue diver as most enjoyable rewarding course of them all, and is the final step before starting your pro training. You will learn that,

While uncommon, emergencies in scuba diving do occasionally occur. The PADI Rescue Diver course trains you to anticipate and respond to a variety of diving-related emergency scenarios. By shifting the focus from your own personal safety to the general well-being of everyone in the water, you will gain greater confidence in your own diving abilities while developing the mindset necessary to take your first steps towards becoming a PADI Divemaster.

The Divemaster internship is the first step onto the Professional career ladder as a diver:

The PADI Divemaster course that may well change your life as it did for me! PADI Divemaster training develops your leadership abilities, qualifying you to supervise dive activities and assist PADI instructors with student divers. It is a vital stepping stone along the path to instructor. Your Divemaster internship on Roatan should be one of the best times of your life. Not only because you are doing lots of diving in a beautiful tropical location steps from or on the beach, but because of the awesome array of people you will have the opportunity to meet and work with. Whilst there are naturally serious aspects to the course there is a huge focus on FUN. Since most people dive for fun you need to develop skills that ensure the safety of your divers without taking away the fun.

Following your Divemaster course the best way to find employment is to make the step to instructor, this challenging 10 day course followed by an Instructor Exam with a PADI examiner prepares you to teach all the courses you have taken on your way to this goal.

The goals of the IDC are not limited to teaching candidates how to pass an IE. The IDC emphasizes development, not testing. This produces a low-stress environment that makes learning easier. Candidates can relax and concentrate on skill development, knowing that making mistakes is part of the learning process. During these courses, the staff plays the important role of supporting, guiding and advising candidates. This two phase program, IDC and IE, makes the PADI Instructor development process the most comprehensive and demanding of any in the dive industry. New PADI Instructors must meet the highest standards for learning and performance of any recreational diver certification organization.

Further training is then available to broaden your education and the number of courses you can take, Go Pro Caribbean offers training in many specialty areas including tec diving.

Bill & Nowdla Keefe's Bimini Undersea

What is commonly known as Bimini is actually two separate islands, North Bimini and South Bimini. The islands are separated by a shallow, narrow channel and transportation between the two islands is by a short, 4 minute water taxi ride. The majority of Bimini's population resides on North Bimini as does the island(s) center of commerce. The North Island is just 7 miles long and in many places, less than 700 feet wide. Less than half of that distance actually populated. South Bimini on the other hand, is a much larger land mass but is more sparsely populated. South Bimini is where the islands airstrip/airport is located and is a port-of-entry for the Bahamas.

Divers have little difficulty sighting barracudas, dolphins, whale sharks, nurse sharks, turtles as well as sting rays - a thrill for all divers.

It was successively a Spanish, British, Dutch, and French possession until 1814, when France, at the end of the Napoleonic Wars, had to cede the island to Britain. Tobago formed a part of the Windward Islands Colony until 1889, when it was joined to Trinidad.
