How to get there: Freeport on the island of Grand Bahama is where the Bahamas Master operates from and is the recommended airport of entry and departure. Miami and Atlanta are the main US gateways for direct flights, or you can fly into Nassau and then take a domestic onward flight to Freeport. There are many indirect flights from other US cities and other international starting points. Airlines include Delta, American, Silver and Bahamas.
Lighthouse Pointe, Grand Lucayan Resort, is the departure port for the Bahamas Master. Return flights from Freeport (or Nassau) to the USA are treated as domestic flights, which makes life easier for your onward journey as you can make "domestic" rather than "international" connections.
Arrival/Boarding/Departure: It is recommended you aim to arrive in Freeport on the day before the liveaboard departs. Boarding the Bahamas Master is at 17:00 hrs, for a 18:00 hrs departure to the night anchorage prior to the first dives on Sunday morning. If tides require, departure may be delayed until the early morning of the following day. Return to port is after lunch on the afternoon of the last full day. Check-out is at any time up to 10:00 hrs on the final morning. The crew can arrange to transfer you to the airport or nearby hotels. The last dive of the trip will be at around 10.00 hrs on the second last day of the trip. Please wait at least 18 hours before flying after diving.
Diving Environment: There are almost 2,500 cays and 700 islands (30 uninhabited) in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas, which lies around 56 miles (90 km) off the coast of Florida.. A 3 to 5 mm full length wetsuit is normally the exposure suit of choice for Bahamas water temperatures: Summer 78-84°F / 25-28°C, Winter: 75-80°F, / 24-27°C (possible 72°F /22°C drop in January). Diving is conducted from the stern of the mothership. The variety of sharks is one of the Bahamas trump cards. You may encounter hammerheads, Caribbean reef sharks, blacktips, tiger sharks, nurse sharks, bull sharks and lemon sharks. You can expect walls and reefs teeming with marine life: stingrays, eagle rays, groupers, possibly dolphins and certainly plenty of macro critters. The macro possibilities include batwing coral crabs, spotted sea hares, flatworms, squat anemone shrimps, Caribbean reef octopus, Bahamian spiny lobsters and Caribbean hermit crabs.
Non-diver rate: 10% off the full published price. However, many Bahamas sites may not be suitable for snorkeling due to chumming activity.
Single supplement (if you do not want to share accommodation): This is optional - single travelers may choose to share a cabin or pay a supplement of 65% of the normal published price.

See whole boat charter rate below, which is equivalent to pay for 14 guests and 2 additional persons can join in the Standard cabin free of charge (total 16 guests).
