Liveaboard Dive Adventure Cruise

September 14-21, 2024

 Luxury accommodations await you!   The company that sponsors, hosts and operates the charter is an independent supplier to Castaways Travel.

This couples clothing optional yacht boasts three levels of living space, private oversized cabins with ocean view windows (no portholes) and full en-suite amenities that make living on board feel like you are on your own floating bed and breakfast!   The dive deck is over 900 square feet and there is ample room for everyone. The gourmet chef will have you salivating and your professional crew will see to all your needs on board.  Priorities:   Fun, Diving, Nudity and Exploring new destinations; although this is a lifestyle-friendly charter, no one is expected to participate and privacy is respected.

Cruise from Nassau to the remote islands of the Exumas, especially the Land and Sea Park, the most pristine area in all the Bahamas. No crowds, no set itineraries, just sit back, relax and choose from an incredible variety of activities including scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, sunbathing, and island exploring. Cruises offer a large variety of dives including shark dives, blue holes, swift drifts, walls and reefs at all depths. Log up to 26 dives in one week and each will be unique and unforgettable! Nitrox is available.
