Spring in the Bahamas

It’s been a beautiful return to our home port of Miami this Spring, so much so that it’s hard to believe it’s actually Spring in Florida! Typically Spring tends to be a little peckish, performing the “In like a Lion, out like a Lamb” routine with a few last ditch efforts at windy winter weather before the summer calm. Water temps are usually a bit on the chilly side (low 70s) and because of that March tends to be a little slow…

Water temps have been in the mid- to high-70s (78 last reported!) and visibility and weather have been  stellar! Last week our divemaster Trevor took this picture from the deck of Juliet. What a week! The group got all the way down to Orange Cay for some stellar pristine diving and managed to slaughter 101 lionfish in 4 days! Congratulations!

Thursday the group ended up paying for all the beautiful weather and spent the day barbecuing and relaxing behind Gun Cay (featured above) after a beautiful week of flat seas and light wind, the wind came up out of the southwest which made diving very unpleasant out front. Divers chowed down on their kills of the week garnished with a little perfectly grilled steak and headed back home under full sail.

We’ve still got some Spring availability – I think the weather is just going to get better and better!
