What is a repositioning trip?!
In the winter the weather in Florida and the Bahamas can get a little sketchy – anyone who’s ever done a Gulf Stream Crossing in January can attest to that! And didn’t it snow it Ft. Myers a few years back!? That is why Juliet heads south for the winter, to find more consistent and pleasant climates to dive and explore in. Our winter destinations have included the Turks and Caicos, Virgin Islands, Western Puerto Rico and Mona Island. Every year just after Thanksgiving we head south, and we invite passengers to come along with us!
Each Repositioning trip covers about 500 miles over 11 days and is always an adventure. These trips are not for everyone, however. Unlike our week-long trips out of Miami, we can’t guarantee we’ll always have an island to hide behind to get some shelter – we’ve got places to be, things to see, amazing dives to do! And we often like to go exploring, trying different destinations and islands that we’ve never been to – that sometimes not many other people have been to either – so there are dives we do that could be spectacular, or could be a dud. It might be rough and it might be an adventure into the unknown, but it will be unforgettable.
Most Repositioning trips travel between Miami and Turks and Caicos by way of the Bahamas. We’ll dive the Bimini area, the Berry Islands, Nassau, the Exumas, Eleuthera, Conception Island, and if the weather cooperates we’ll hit Hogsty Reef, one of the only coral atolls in the western hemisphere. We end in the Turks and Caicos, but not before whale watching around West Caicos and French Cay (Due to extensive permitting required, there is unfortunately no diving in Turks and Caicos on repositioning trips).
These trips are truly unforgettable, but not for the faint of heart! Contact us for details or to book your cabin on the next repositioning trip!
