Diving the Bahamas with the liveaboard Bahamas Master

It is an understatement to say the Bahamas are World Famous for Shark Diving, however, there is so much more! The Bahamas is the third largest Barrier Reef area in the world and covers a vast 470.000km2 of sparkling Atlantic Ocean. Existing of 700 Islands and Cays; one can easily imagine the variety of dive sites: Wrecks, Cave, Blue Holes and, obviously - Sharks!

Originally based in Panama, this 35m steel vessel becomes part of the Master Liveaboards fleet in 2018 as the Bahamas Master.

The Bahamas Master has 8 well-designed cabins and can comfortably welcome 16 guests onboard. Guests can choose between three cabin types; two Premium cabins on the forward Upper Deck, with Double beds plus private en-suite bathroom, two Classic cabins with en-suite and four Standard cabins sharing two bathrooms with heated showers. All cabins have panoramic windows, so there is plenty of day light and ocean views for all.

Communal relaxation areas are both on the Upper and Main Decks. On the Main Deck, towards the bow of the boat, indoor you will find the designated camera area plus comfortable bean bags and a TV/DVD. Upstairs, you will find the spacious covered Outdoor Bar and Dining Area, as well as a Sundeck for relaxation after the dives.

All Master Liveaboards yachts offer a choice of international and local cuisine, served buffet style, in the indoor air-conditioned dining area.
