    The 65’ sloop, Blackbeard's Sea Explorer, offers year round dive trips to the crystal clear waters of the Bahamas. Diving with sharks, exhilarating drift diving, beautiful walls and blue holes are what make the Exuma Cays so special. There is no set itinerary aboard the Sea Explorer liveaboard, the captain and crew will take the boat where the conditions and weather are best, and with over 250 moored dive sites there is no shortage of amazing places to dive!

    Blackbeard's Sea Explorer, which is the identical twin sister of Morning Star liveaboard and sister vessel of Aqua Cat, offers 3 dormitory style cabin areas with 18 bunks and 3 heads. Each cabin area has AC, and all are sectioned off with privacy curtains, similar to a sleeper cabin on a train. A trip with Blackbeards Sea Explorer includes up to 19 dives, all meals and snacks and all drinks including beer, wine and rum punch. When you take a trip with Blackbeard's Sea Explorer, not only will you discover some of the best diving the Bahamas has, but you will make life-long friends and have an adventure to remember.

    Awesome, I will definitely be back next year ! Blackbeard's The Best of the Bahamas, Bahamas in March

    The captain and the entire crew keeping us entertained the last couple of days when the weather was not the best. We had a full boat and everyone left with a smile.
