Live Aboard Scuba Dive Cruises Vacation
One of the most fun and adventurous activity when you want to go scuba diving vacation is to find a luxurious live aboard diving cruise ship near your diving destinations. This will cut the hassle of waking up early in morning and then transported to you dive boat by the dive operator. Then going from your boat to your hotel again after the dive. This pattern again repeated over the next few days of your diving holiday is not only time consuming, it is a needless activity.

Furthermore, you can only dive at area near you and will be unable to go further out to sea to other better dive spots located far away. Then there is the time taken to take you to the dive location and then coming back to shore again.

With liveaboard scuba diving cruises, you will save all the time and hassles and yet, you can go island hopping and see new dive sites day after day. It is a myth that live on board cruise ship is expensive. It is not. In fact it may even be cheaper because you need not stay in a hotel, engage a dive operator and then more savins on transportation. I know because I have been to a few diving trips on live on board cruise ships.

One of the best and least expensive liveaboard dive cruise ship operator I have found is Black Beard's Cruises. Black Beard's Cruises offers liveaboard scuba diving vacations in the Bahamas. Although the Bahamas is not exactly in Asia, I find it neccesary to enter a blog entry about Black Beard's liveaboard dive cruises. They will take you for a variety of dives including wreck dive, wall diving, night, drift and even shark dives. Erm... don't scare the sharks will ya?

Black Beard's liveaboard ships are not actually ships per se, they are a fleet of three luxurious sailboats named Sea Explorer, Morning Star and Pirate's Lady, which can also take you Caribbean diving in Western Bahamas.

Perhaps the most popular dive in Black Beard's dive location is the sharks dive. Caribbean reef tip sharks, huge nurse sharks even the beautiful but dreaded tiger sharks are often sighted. Colorful reefs teeming with marine life sit in depths of 15-80 feet so divers of all levels enjoy the scuba diving we offer on our Bahamas scuba diving vacations!

The western part of the Bahamas was hideout of pirates in the old days. Without the fear of pirates in modern times, the Bahamas islands offer spectacular diving in warm, crystal clear waters teeming with coral reefs and marine lives. No wonder Black Beard's Bahamas vacation slogan "Twice the fun for half the price" is indeed believable.
