OUR BOAT 

The liveaboard Sea Explorer is 66 feet (20m) long and 20 feet (6m) wide. Detailed attention has gone into the design of Sea Explorer. The liveaboard Sea Explorer's mission is to make the guest forget that they are on a boat, by offering the best there is in diving and spare-time activities. The ship is a gorgeous liveaboard Yacht, built to venture the high seas and set to delve into the secrets of Neptune's realm in the Bahamas.

OUR CABINS

Accommodation arrangements onboard include 18 Bunks with a maximum of 22 guests, catering for Singles and Couples in air-conditioned areas of the boat. Berths are Single Upper and Lower, or Double Upper and Lower, each with its own privacy curtain similar to a sleeperette on a train. There are no cabins, all berths are dormitory style. Berths are 74″ in length, with doubles 48″ wide and singles 24″ to 36″ wide. Blackbeard’s Sea Explorer is a great example of an affordable liveaboard.

Affectionately described as “camping on the seas”, snacks, fresh fruit hammock and buffet meals eaten picnic style with dormitory style sleeping accommodations. What you trade for luxury, you’ll make up for in adventure and camaraderie; Blackbeard’s attracts an outgoing adventure traveller so friends are easy to make on board! With 19 dives each week and a crew that loves to have fun, you’ll make new friends and memories to treasure for a lifetime! The liveaboard Sea Explorer's schedules were set so the destinations can be explored under the best conditions. The guiding principle when this boat was designed was to stand out through great service and a unique liveaboard feeling.

AMENITIES

Between dives, guests rest in quaint comfort in the air conditioned lounge area complete with television for watching movies. There is also room on the spacious liveaboard deck for lying in the sun or a shaded area to take an afternoon siesta.

FOOD ON BOARD

The liveaboard ship's concept is holistic in that besides offering great diving in the Bahamas it also wants to provide a great above water experience of which the food offering plays a crucial part. The liveaboard Sea Explorer sets itself apart because you can enjoy great food from a buffet. 3 complete meals are served daily, as well as snacks and fresh fish in season. We serve typical American fare - Baked Chicken, Pork Loin, Lasagne and Meatballs, with all the sides and dessert too! Meals are served buffet and eaten picnic style. There is always a hammock of fresh fruit for those in between meal snacks. They are also offering snacks all day, Vegetarian and Gluten free food.

DIVING WITH US

Experience the thrill of seeing a variety of Sharks, colourful Reefs, dark and mystic Caves, the Blue Hole and long lost Underwater Islands. The cozy boat fosters camaraderie between the Divers and is suited for the more budget-oriented traveller. Most of the time the water around the Bahamas is very warm and usually clear and pristine. Underwater visibility is frequently at 20-30m. Discover some of the most fascinating dive spots - Lost Blue Hole, Periwinkle Reef, Amberjack Reef - in the Bahamas.

DIVING AREAS

Nassau

  • Lost Blue Hole -The rim of this large blue hole lies in 40' of water surrounded by coral heads, sting rays and many schools of fish.
  • Periwinkle Reef -This is a shallow patch reef that is teaming with fish.

Exumas

  • Amberjack Reef - A 50' patch reef that was the site of our Exumas shark feeding dive.
  • Austin Smith Wreck - A 90' Bahamian Defense Force Cutter that sank in 1995 while being towed to San Salvador to be sunk there as a dive site. This wreck has many sharks swimming around it and a wall just to the east.
  • Barracuda Shoals - This bankside patch reef has huge schools of fish as well as many small critters on the reef and surrounding sand.
  • Cracked Coral Head - This massive coral head rises 40' off the bottom. Several large swim-thru's make it looked like it is cracked.
  • Dog Rocks - This reef starts at 35' and slopes off to 50' before dropping straight down into the Exuma Sound. This is one of the best dives in the Bahamas. Many pelagics frequent this reef, especially eagle rays and sharks.
  • Jeep Reef - This is one of the prettiest reefs you will ever see. The strong current that sweeps through this cut keeps the reef’s corals very healthy.
  • Pillar Wall - One of many excellent wall dives. There are many caves and crevices. There is a large colony of yellowhead jawfish in the rubble inside the reef.
  • The Washing Machine - The strong incoming tide of up to 6 mph takes scuba divers thru a narrow cut where water drops off a ledge and then makes a sharp bend to the left. This causes the water to swirl like the water in a washing machine.
  • Wax Cut Drift - Divers and Snorkelers alike fly over this 30' reef at over 2 knots. You will see rays, sharks, eels and numerous fish as you drift with the current in the cut between the islands.
  • Whale Shark Wall - This wall is named for the whale sharks that have frequented this area for several winters. Like all of our walls, when you stare into the abyss, you never know what you might see.
  • Whale Tail Wall - A great wall just south of Wax Cut. Large parrotfish roam the sand inside the reef while sharks & eagle rays are frequently seen off the wall.

Southwest Eleuthera

  • Cave Rock - The large variety of corals and fish will amaze you. We have frequently seen Hammerhead Sharks here.
  • Jake's Hole -The highlight of this dive is the vibrant corals surrounding the hole. Because it is very tidal, scuba divers aren't permitted to enter the hole.
  • Monolith - Large mounds of coral rise out of the sand at the edge of the wall. They start at 100' and rise to 55'. There is a colony of Garden Eels in the sand next to the mounds.
