You asked and we listened. Ready to dive the Bahamas?

                                                                                  Dive with Sharks

Columbia Scuba has partnered with UNEXSO and Bahamas Paradise Cruise Lines to create a late season getaway. This trip features the best of two worlds, a relaxed Caribbean cruise and awesome diving in clear, warm waters!

We'll embark at the Port of Palm Beach on Thursday, October 26th. Enjoy all that a cruise has to offer: food, fun and entertainment! Arriving in Freeport, Bahamas early Friday morning, we'll be picked up by the famed Miss Paddy and driven directly to UNEXSO (The Underwater Explorer's Society) where we'll store our luggage and immediately start our dive adventures with a two-tank dive! After diving, we'll check in to the Pelican Bay Resort, right next door to UNEXSO.

On Saturday, enjoy a scrumptious buffet breakfast before we leave for another morning two-tank dive. That afternoon, we will be experiencing UNEXSOs famous shark dive! That evening, we'll dine in Lucaya Village or perhaps Miss Paddy will help us discover a hidden gem somewhere on the island.

On Sunday morning, we'll have have another two-tank dive. While our gear is drying, we can relax at the Dive-In Bar and Grill before being transported in the afternoon back to the cruise ship for our return to West Palm Beach the morning of October 30th.  


COLUMBIA SCUBA's fee includes:

  • Hotel accommodations at Pelican Bay Resort (2 nights d/o)
  • Morning Breakfast at the hotel dining facility
  • Three days of two tank morning dives (Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
  • One afternoon Shark Dive (Saturday)
  • Transfers to and from the resort


BECAUSE THIS IS A TWO-EXPERIENCE TRIP, we've found that it works more smoothly to allow participants to book their own travel with Bahamas Paradise Cruise Lines.

Columbia Scuba has negotiated a group rate with Bahamas Paradise Cruise Lines that includes an interior cabin d/o and we have been assigned a specific group number. At the time you are able to make a trip reservation deposit of $100 to Columbia Scuba, you will be given our group number and specific contact information to book your cruise.
