We welcomed our Dive group aboard, had an excellent dinner and settled into a quiet evening in Nassau.
Our moring dive put us back on the wall with Cut Through City. The swim throughs and towering Coral heads festoned with Black Coral, Sponges and associated reef Fish. Then on to another greaat Wall dive; Cut n Run with it’s encrusted anchor and plane wrek made for great photo opportunities. The next stop was the lovely and intrecate Cave Rock. Crabs, Octopuss and Shrimp made for a great night dive.
We began the diving day with a visit to the amazing Cobia Cage where the nudibranches cover the netting of this unique structure. Monolith provide anothe spectacular Wall dive then on to the Shark dive of Split Coral. We had a special visit with a Tiger Shark! This site also made for a super night dive. We then headed Down to the Exumas Park.
The swimming Pigs provided fun for all this morning. We then settled in for the cruise up to the dive sites of the northern Exumas starting with Flat Rock. A lovely shallow reef system theat makes of great Yellow headed Jaw Fish, Sting ray and Turtle interations. This site also made for a great Night dive.
Jew Fish Wall provide our first dive of this day. Deep drop off and Cresting reef top make for awesome wall diving. The wrek of the Austin Smith lures in the Sharks but also gentle encounters with Nassau Groupers and Spade Fish. Barracuda Reef was up next allowing snooping aboud scattered Coral heads and critters to be found in the nooks and crannies. Aquarium is a similar dive where the schooling Snappers, grunts and crommies are a plenty. Close Mon gave us another great night dive and then we moved closer to Nassau.
The Lost Blue Hole, a spectacular drop into the hole and around the crest were Reek Sharks, Nurse Sharks and a Lager Head Turtle. We finished up the weeks diving on the pretty Periwinkle and it myriad collection of Sargent Majors, Soft Corals and crustations. Back on the dock we enjoyed a Coctail Party and made plans for further diving adventures.
