OF MARINE CONSERVATION
he Juliet is a special schooner that sets off from Miami to the beautiful Bahamas. Our private trip aboard the Juliet is a custom-planned conservation trip.
Voted as the #1 U.S.-based liveaboard by Sport Diver Magazine, the Juliet is a sustainable vessel that uses only 4-6 gallons of fuel per hour. The diving, the crew, the food, the accommodations and the experience of being one with the sea are unbeatable.
The boat is cozy & relaxing. The cabins all have air conditioning and daylight, beautiful wood and comfortable beds. There are two ensuite cabins. The other rooms share three heads and two shower areas.
We board in Miami and cross overnight to the Bahamas.
We will usually have three day dives and a night dive; expect 18-20 dives.
The Bahamas are known for endless visibility, because of the white sands and bright sun. We will dive close to the nutrient-rich currents of the Gulf Stream that help to feed and to maintain the coral reef health. These reefs are some of the most resilient—with fast recovery from storms, and the ability to survive a wide range of environmental conditions. The coral reefs provide beautiful, safe shelters for a huge diversity of fish.
On the edge of the Gulf Stream are beautiful awe-inspiring walls, some starting at only 35 feet (11 meters), and offering dramatic drift dives when the current is running.
Bimini is the only area of the Bahamas that can claim the integration of mangroves with the coral reefs—providing a safe, shallow ecosystem for juveniles of every species to thrive.
• Lionfish—harvesting and eating them
• Dolphins—visiting them in the wild
• Sharks—collecting measurement data with a custom laser tool
• Sea Turtles—identifying and measuring

• Observing & understanding the underwater environment from our onboard marine biologist
Diving in the Bahamas is spectacular. There is little current, warm water, an abundance of sharks, turtles, walls, wrecks and beautiful coral.
