The Bahamas Master is a steel-hulled liveaboard of 115 ft (35m) in length and takes a maximum of only 18 divers, meaning there is plenty of space on board. These diving tours focus on some of the Bahamas' big name creatures itineraries including tiger sharks, hammerhead sharks and dolphins.

You can hang out with other guests at the outdoor bar and dining area on the upper deck, or work on your tan on the spacious sundeck. There is an indoor lounge area with comfortable seating and entertainment facilities, however mostly people relax in the outdoor spaces, enjoying the ever-changing Caribbean views. There is plenty of space to find yourself a quiet spot or to go where the action is. Most cabins have windows, allowing in plenty of natural light, and all the cabins, except standard cabins, have private ensuite bathrooms, and there are 2 cabins available for single travellers.

The dive deck is large and roomy, featuring individual dive stations and in-built boxes beneath your tank, with plenty of storage space for your bits and pieces. Diving is done from well-organized dive tenders that similarly feature centrally-located equipment stations and compartments for smaller items of equipment. Photographers will appreciate the dedicated indoor camera station on the main deck, where you can relax on comfortable bean bags and watch your new images on TV. There are also separate rinse tanks for cameras and computers.

Covering large areas of the Bahamas and seeking out the best underwater experiences, The Bahamas Master tours Tiger Beach, Grand Bahama, Bimini, The Exumas and beyond. for shark-loving and discerning divers, this is a comfortable, stylish and professionally run option for your Bahamanian scuba adventure.
