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.

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.
