Blackbeard's - FEBRUARY 29 TO MARCH 6, 2020

Twice the fun/half the cost: Blackbeard’s stands for adventure, camaraderie and the best dive sites!

For over 35 years, Blackbeard’s cozy and comfortable sailing liveaboard Morning Star, has been carrying divers to the best kept secret of the Bahamas- the Exuma Cays! What makes this trip special is the camaraderie developed while on board. It will be a trip you’ll never forget. Bring your buddies or come alone - you will find an open and welcoming atmosphere among our guests.

Cabin layout

Boat

Blackbeard’s sailing sloop, Morning Star, is a great example of an affordable liveaboard and is affectionately described as “camping on the seas.” There’s space for 22 passengers, and all accommodation are in dormitory-style berths, each with its own privacy curtain.


Between dives, guests can rest in the air-conditioned lounge area complete with television for watching movies. There is also room on the spacious deck for lying in the sun or a shaded area to take an afternoon siesta.

Food

Three complete meals are served daily, served buffet and eaten picnic style. The food is typical American fare like baked chicken, pork loin, lasagna and meatballs, plus sides and dessert too! 


There is always a hammock of fresh fruit for those in between meal snacks.

What you trade for luxury, you’ll make up for in adventure and camaraderie!


Blackbeard’s attracts an outgoing adventure traveller so friends are easy to make on board! With 19 dives each week and a crew that loves to have fun, you’ll make new friends and memories to treasure for a lifetime!

Crew

Much of the success of Morning Star liveaboard is due to the crew.  Exceptional at what they do, their outgoing personalities and outstanding commitment make them a great liveaboard sailboat experience.
