The Bahamas Aggressor depart her home dock of Elizabeth on Bay and made may to the Exuma Islands long before the Sun showed its bight face. Our first stop once we arrived in the Exuma was Lobster No Lobster. Lobster No Lobster is a shallow colorful dive site with lots of Marine Life to enjoy while getting buoyancy and camera equipment tuned in. Just a few things we saw was Barracuda, Filefish, Queen Triggerfish and Hawksbill Turtle. Next was Barracuda Shoals where we enjoyed swimming with Lobsters, Crabs and Stingrays and many Barracuda’s. After two awesome dives we made our way to a dive site called Knucklehead just off the island of Eleuthera. Here we enjoyed several small Swim Thru’s, Blennies, Butterflyfish, Hamlets, Flatworms and Squid.
Monday October 31st
Our first wall dive of the week was Primo Wall. While diving Primo some of what we saw Banded Coral Shrimp, Channel Clinging Crabs, Green and Spotted Moray Eels. One of the crew’s favorite dive site around Eleuthera is Jake’s Hole. Jake’s Hole is one of those dive sites that you could spend the entire day diving. It has a huge variety of Marine Life in shallow waters. Just some of what we encountered while diving Jake’s Hole was Arrowcrabs, Garden Eels, Yellowhead Jawfish, Channel Clinging Crabs, Huge Green Moray Eel and Squid.
Tuesday November 1st
Split Coral Head was the number one site this morning. This dive site is always good for a variety of marine life. But most all everyone ever talks about after the dive is all the Sharks that come in close. Today we had 8 Caribbean Reef Sharks swim near us some coming as close as a few inches. The Sharks stayed with us all morning, which made the morning very exciting. Monolith was our first afternoon dive. We found Porcupinefish, Black Coral, Banded Coral Shrimp, Hundreds of Garden Eels and Hawksbill Turtle. We finish the day on a shallow dive site with lots of Swim Thru’s, small creatures and the site is called The Kracken. Some of what we saw was Secretary Blennies, Pale Cardinalfish, Juvenile Beaugregory’s, Brittle Stars and Squid.

We started the day with a pre-breakfast dive on Cave Rock. Lots of Creatures were found on Cave Rock, some of them were Golden Crinoid, Corkscrew Anemone, Medusa Worms and fish like Snapper, Groupers and Jacks. An Anchor Encrusted with Coral and Sponges, A Long Chain lying on the sand bottom and a Small Plane all have one thing in common, we saw it all while diving Cut & Run. We saw all that plus more, like Sea Plums, Venus Sea Fans, Low Relief Lettuce Coral, Horse-Eye Jacks, Mackerel and several types of Groupers. We finish the day on Cave Rock. Several of us took excellent pictures of Colorful Christmas Tree Worms, Arrow Blennies, Crabs and Lobsters.

Our last dive in Eleuthera w enjoyed the Swim Thru’s and Canyons of Cut Thru City and saw a Variety of Marine Life including a friendly Hawksbill Turtle. During lunch we made our way back to the Exuma Islands and the dive site called Aquarium. After diving and seeing the amount and variety of Fish, Corals and Creatures on this site, many divers come up as say how it was like diving in their own Aquarium. Flat Rock Reef was our last dive of the day. During this wonderful dive we encountered schools of Grunts, Snappers, Giant Hermit Crab, Blennies, Gobies, Rays and a huge variety of other creatures.
