In response to Coronavirus, the Bahamian Government have issued the following restrictions:
Passengers who have been in China (People’s Rep.), Iran, Italy or Korea (Rep.) in the past 20 days are not allowed to enter.
Passengers who have been in Europe, Ireland or United Kingdom in the past 20 days are not allowed to enter until 13 April 2020.
Please bear these restrictions in mind when making your travel arrangements and let us know if you will be affected by this, or restrictions imposed by the US on travel from Europe.
While some batteries may be available to purchase on board, please bring extras if your personal dive equipment may require a unique size. Because of the remote locations in which our vessels operate, there is limited or no access to battery recycling facilities. To help us with responsible tourism we kindly request you bring home your own spent batteries to be recycled or disposed of properly. Alternatively, consider using rechargeable batteries as there are plenty of sockets to plug in a charger on board.

Even though diving with sharks is very exciting and fun, it has inherent risks. The safety of our guests is paramount and we therefore adopt specific rules when diving with sharks in the Bahamas. To minimise the risks, all divers are required to follow the guidelines outlined in our Important Shark Diving Information.

Transit Via the United States – ESTA or Visas
If you are travelling via the United States, you will likely need to apply for an ESTA under the Visa Waiver Program or acquire a US visa.
IMPORTANT: From 1 April 2016, all travellers wishing to enter the US under the VWP will need to hold a passport with an integrated chip (an ePassport).
Your passport should be valid for six months from the date of departure from the Bahamas.

Please contact your health adviser or pharmacy, at least 8 weeks prior to departure, for advice if you are unsure which vaccinations you require. We are unable to give specific advice on vaccines or other medical precautions as this information should be provided by a medical professional. Further travel health advice can be found at:
