great shark diving

Very professionally managed shark diving albeit the boat itself is of much lesser quality with very tight accommodations, probably the smallest cabin I ever experienced. Some of us experienced food poisoning problems during our trip, they should better manage their out of date food supplies.

Sharks were great, boat and crew not so much

Would have appreciated more transparency about changing the itinerary midway through the trip and given options, rather than just told at the last minute what we would be doing that day. The food was all Costco food, not much homemade. The boat should have more lounging space; it felt crowded

Great Tiger Sharks encounter

We really enjoyed the friendliness and professionalisms of the crew members and dive teams. We had a very nice stay on Bahamas Master. We were a bit surprised about the itinerary as it was not clearly mentioned in the description that it was mainly Tiger sharks feeding at the same dive spot for the whole trip. The team accommodated for us to do some very nice drift dives at Mount Olympus and Mini Wall. We thank them for their flexibility. We did not do any dives in the ocean close by Grand Bahama and no wreck dives. All in one it was a very enjoyable trip to be recommended for shark lovers.
