Saturday May 21st

Due to some delayed flights the guest of the Bahamas Aggressor enjoy a wonderful dinner onboard and a quite evening on the dock at the Old Bahama Bay Resort.

 

Sunday May 22nd

Way before daylight the Bahamas Aggressor departed Old Bahama Bay Resort for the 3-hour journey to explore the reef off the West End of Grand Bahama. Our first dive to check buoyancy and camera equipment was the Sugar Wreck. Located in 15-20 feet of water guest enjoyed the clear warm waters of the Little Bahama Bay. While diving the wreck we saw Hundreds of Fish, Moray Eels, Lobsters, Nurse Shark and a Loggerhead Turtle. Our next dive site was Shark Paradise where we stayed for the rest of the day. While on the reef there was a lot of Marine Life to enjoy, we stayed under the Bahamas Aggressor where Nurse Sharks, Caribbean Reef Sharks, Lemon Sharks and 3 Tiger Sharks swam around us. All the Sharks including the Big Tigers were swimming inches away, close enough to get a micro shot of her eyes. It was an Amazing day with the Sharks!

 

Monday May 23rd

We started the day on my favorite dive site in the area, El Captaan. El Captaan is always a busy reef with a Huge Variety of Marine Life to encounter. Some of what we saw today was, Goldentail Moray Eel, Mackerel, Greater Amberjacks, Caribbean Reef and Lemon Sharks Lots of Queen Angelfish and a couple of Spotted Eagle Rays. After we headed back to where we enjoyed a lot of shark action yesterday, Sharks Paradise. It was a good place to play in the afternoon we had lots of Nurse, Caribbean and Lemon Sharks. For the night dive it was the Sugar Wreck. One of the guests said it best, “That Wreck Is A Busy Place”. We saw Schools of Fish, Several Moray Eels, Pufferfish, Nurse and Caribbean Reef Sharks and 3 Loggerhead Turtles; one of the Turtles was Huge!

 

Tuesday May 24th

Today we started the day swimming with Schools of Greater Amberjack, Mackerel, Caribbean Reef Sharks, Stingrays and all this took place on a reef named El Dorado, which is also covered with Hard and Soft Coral. There was so much stuff we needed more film for the cameras. Hogfish Reef was our later afternoon and night dive. Hogfish Reef is a busy place with a huge variety of Marine Life all over the reef. We enjoyed Moray Eels, Rays, Tiger and Nassau Groupers, Mackerel, Parrotfish, Octopus, Caribbean Reef Sharks and a Big Tiger Shark that just stayed swimming around under the vessel, sometimes coming only a few feet away.   And then after dinner and before the night dive we had about 7 Spotted Dolphins come hang out near the back of the boat.

 

Wednesday May 25th

Mini Wall was our am dive site, like yesterday morning this was a busy dive site. We enjoyed lots of Marine Life, Spotted Eagle Rays and about 8 Caribbean Reef Sharks swimming around. To top off the morning a small 7-foot Tiger Shark came near us under the Bahamas Aggressor. During lunch we made our way back to Hogfish Reef. We enjoyed the afternoon and night here so much we wanted to experience the Hogfish Reef Again. And again it was Sweet. Lots of Marine Life, Caribbean Reef Sharks and a couple of Tiger Sharks staying near the Magical Pyramid, which is just under the Bahamas Aggressor.

 

Thursday May 26th

Red’s Ledge was the first stop. The Marine Life on the reef was just starting to wake up as we made our decent. We saw Colorful Corals, Tropical Fish, Caribbean Reef Sharks and Lemon Sharks. On our first day we visited Shark Paradise and because it was an excellent experience, it was time for another visit. I think it was even better then the first time. We saw lots of action with the Marine Life on the reef. As we swam over the reef we saw Huge Parrotfish, Snappers and Large Black Groupers that would swim into our arms.   But the best was happening under the Bahamas Aggressor where we encountered Nurse Sharks, Caribbean Reef Sharks, Lemon Sharks and a couple of Big Tiger Sharks. If that wasn’t enough towards the end of the day a couple of Spotted Dolphins swim near. It was an Excellent Day!!

 

Friday May 27th

Our final dive of the week was on El Dorado. Just like earlier this week it was an awesome dive, swimming with lots of Marine Life, Eels, Mackerel, Ocean Triggerfish, Caribbean Reef Sharks and Lemon Sharks.
