The flexibility of the Bahamas Explorer trip lets you choose how you want to spend 21-days on a beautiful sloop sailing through paradise!
After its start in 2000, SeaTrek’s voyages in the British Virgin Islands had begun to really take off. Students returned for multiple voyages to participate in the exceptional scuba, sailing, and marine science training afforded by SeaTrek and its engaging and expert staff.
Capt. Monk and Capt. Kat discussed how they might meet the growing demand for SeaTrek programs, especially those for their returning students who were not necessarily looking for more SCUBA classes but who wanted to simply get lost in diving and exploring the tropical wonderland of the Caribbean, including islands beyond the BVI.
Around the same time, Capt. Monk had a chance encounter with a former colleague, Capt. Ray, who was running Bahamian dive charters on his own 65-ft. sailing sloop, the Avalon. So began the Bahamas Explorer Voyage, which has been and continues to be one of SeaTrek’s most popular voyages.
The 21-day Bahamas Explorer Voyage allows participants to choose the itinerary and how they want to spend their time in their very own tropical playground – diving, fishing, hiking, swimming, sailing, exploring, or just relaxing. The Bahamas Explorer voyage is one of a kind and truly off the beaten path.
Unlike our Main Program Voyages in the BVI, the Explorer Voyages do not offer SCUBA instruction so you will need to already be certified. And we hope you are ready to dive, dive, dive because you will have the opportunity to log at least 30 dives! In some cases program options can include school credit and SCUBA specialty courses like underwater photography.
SeaTrekkers experience the joy of blue water sailing, personal encounters with playful dolphins, exploring limestone caves (grottos), and the excitement of drift and wreck diving, as well as several dives with reef sharks. In addition to world-class diving and sailing, fishing (trolling and spearing) is a favorite activity aboard the Avalon.
This voyage fills fast! We only have a couple spots remaining for next summer’s voyage. Don’t get left sitting on the dock. Register for this voyage or find out more by contacting Capt. Monk: 1-(877) GO SAILING (467-2454).
