On Juliet trips to the Bahamas you will discover a placid, turquoise paradise stretching as far as the eye can see with unimaginable graduations of color. Dive into diverse marine life around reef systems that are kept healthy by the continuous enrichment provided by the Gulf Stream.
Juliet leaves from downtown Miami so you don’t have to worry about international flights, lost luggage on connections, or airport customs hassles. Board Juliet in Miami and you’ll be whisked away to the islands of the Bahamas, and won’t have to see a customs line the entire trip.
The Bahamas has a great variety of dives to offer. Best known for the endless visibility – thanks to the white sand and bright sun – the area of the Bahamas we dive is located close to the nutrient-rich currents of the Gulf Stream, which not only provide us with some spectacular drift dives, but helps to feed the coral and keep the reefs healthy. These reefs are some of the most resilient around – they grow quickly, recover from storms quickly, and can survive a larger range of conditions than most other corals. They provide beautiful, safe shelters for a huge diversity of fish – the abundance of life on the reefs is astounding! Bimini is the only area of the Bahamas that can claim the combination of mangroves providing a safe, shallow ecosystem for juveniles of every species to thrive in, and the Gulf Stream-fed reefs to give them a rich and healthy environment to live in as adults.
Juliet Bahamas dive trips are different. We sail and dive where no one else goes, you won’t see another dive boat – or any boat some days!- for miles. We start out diving the Bimini Chain and will routinely travel to its southernmost island of Orange Cay, stopping at dive sites such as Bull Run, Nodules Wall, and Victory Reef to name a few of the abundant choices. From Orange Cay we continue south along the edge of the Grand Bahama Bank deep into Santaren Channel. These remote sites are some of our best kept secrets, dove exclusively by Juliet passengers, and host an abundance of life comparable to premier dive destinations around the world.
Juliet is a 104 ft 3-masted steel-hulled schooner that was built in Australia in 1974. She was first used to carry freight in the Pacific and her bow is reinforced with 2″ steel to protect her from icebergs by Antarctica. She was converted to a live aboard passenger vessel in the 1990s and to a liveaboard dive boat in 2003.
Juliet has six staterooms richly appointed in exotic hardwoods. Each room includes independent air-conditioning, a sink, at least one porthole, reading lamps and ample closet space. Select cabins have sitting areas, and others have heads and showers inside the suite for additional privacy. Juliet includes two full bathrooms, one on deck, as well as private shower and toilet areas. Five of the 6 cabins are able to accommodate couples or singles with a lower double or queen sized bed and a fold-down upper twin bunk for single shares.
