DWF has just finalized the dates for my 2019 Blackbeard’s Cruise with Columbia Scuba!
We are taking the Sea Explorer LiveAboard out of Nassau, Bahamas. The Sea Explorer is a 60 foot sailboat built specifically for diving.
A little taste of Dive With Frank’s 2018 Columbia Scuba trip down to the Bahamas aboard a Blackbeard’s Cruises. I can’t wait to go next year! Come Join Me! https://divewithfrank.com/2018/06/18/april-2019-blackbeards-cruise-w-dwf/
I did a Blackbeard’s Cruise in January, 2017 AND April 2018 and had a fantastic time. My trip report can be found here. So in 2019 I’m heading back and bringing several of my closest new scuba buddies!
Both trips were a blast! A week of warm, crystal clear diving. Unplugged from the Internet and my cell phone for a whole week.
One of the passengers on our 2017 trip summed it up pretty nicely “Ya know all those notifications that came in while I was gone?…none of them were very important.”
This is by far the most reasonably priced diving experience I’ve seen. Seriously, you can’t beat this deal with a stick! We have no set itinerary, we travel around the Exuma Cays going wherever the crew thinks the diving will be the best. Think of “On The Road” with diving and guaranteed meals.
