Out for a dive with the Captain one quiet Sunday morning while we were docked in Nassau. Took us almost an hour in the fast tender to get here, and not a single boat out on a ball. Heaven!! Picked up the first mooring line we saw, and I was the first to drop in. Had NO idea this was the shark dive, and one look below told us exactly where we were. Wow! One of the best dives ever. Dozens of sharks everywhere - we sat on the bottom and just let them circle around us, not another diver to be seen. Two wrecks nearby, but can’t remember what they were, other than it was FANTASTIC diving - clear, warm, lots of sea life, and a great wall drop off nearby. We came up from about an hour’s dive and the charter boats we’re lining up across the horizon. Avoid the crowds and the cost...
