Sunday April 16th
We depart our home dock of Elizabeth on Bay and made way to the Exuma Islands where we enjoy our first dive site Flat Rock Reef. While making sure their buoyancy and camera equipment was working well they enjoyed seeing a variety of Marine. Some of the Marine Life offered at Flat Rock Reef was Schools of Snappers, Grunts, Angelfish, Butterflyfish, Trumpetfish and Nurse Sharks. After a long easy dive on Flat Rock Reef we headed to the Island of Eleuthera and the dive site Tunnel Rock. At Tunnel Rock, some of what we saw was Redeye Shrimp, Lettuce Sea Slugs, Stingrays, Lobsters and Spotted Eels.
Monday April 17th
Our Monday started diving around a Small Plane Wreck and an Encrusted Anchor stuck in a Colorful Wall on the dive site called Cut & Run. Lettuce Sea Slugs, Filefish, Clams, Oysters, Moray Eels and a couple of Loggerhead Turtles are just some of what divers enjoyed. Time for Sharks and the place for that is Split Coral Head. Underwater at Split Coral Head we saw Arrow Blennies, Channel Clinging Crabs, Lobsters and 16 Caribbean Reef Sharks that swam within inches of everyone.

The Cobia Cage was our first dive this morning. The Cobia Cage is a huge structure that sits on the edge of a huge wall. Around the Cage and Wall divers saw Huge Rainbow Parrotfish, Stingrays, Small Arrow Blennies, Cleaner Shrimp and Sharks. Hole in the Wall was next swimming with Schools of Snappers, Jacks, Spadefish, Mackerel and Angelfish. Primo Wall was after lunch; here we saw Queen Triggerfish, Queen Angelfish, Schooling Fish, Lettuce Sea Slugs and Hundreds of Garden Eels. We finished the day on Tunnel Rock diving with Rays, Crabs, Banded Corals Shrimps, Angelfish and Squid.
Wednesday April 19th
Monolith was number one today diving with Amberjacks, Mackerel, Colorful Sea Whips, Sponges, Garden Eels, Yellowhead Jawfish, Lobsters and one of the Largest Loggerhead Turtles I’ve ever seen. Before lunch we enjoyed all the little Swim Thru’s that The Kracken had to offer us. We did another quick stop by Split Coral Head and swam with Caribbean Reef Sharks; there were 12 around us this time. Our later afternoon and night dive was on one the crew’s favorite dive sites called Jake’s Hole. A Shallow Colorful Dive where everyone can get lots of underwater time seeing Schooling Fish, Crabs, Lobsters, Squid and Octopus.

This group knew how to vacation after arriving back in the Exuma’s they skipped a couple of dives to enjoy a couple hours on one of the Beautiful Sandy Beaches on Highborne Cay. We finished the day on Barracuda Shoals diving with Ocean and Queen Triggerfish, Groupers, Rays, Blennies, Butterflyfish, Angelfish, Colorful Corals and Turtles.
