Dive And Cruise Bahamas Liveaboard - Shear Water Reviews
Ryan was a great guide. Would definitely do this again next time I am in Florida.
I booked through Jim Abernathy then on the day of the dive, came to find out that they sold our reservation to Pura Vida without telling us. They also didn't transfer any of our diving information to Pura Vida so they didn't know our experience level or that we needed to rent specific gear. This created confusion and a big delay as everything got sorted out. Not impressed with their level of professionalism at all. Pura Vida, on the other hand, was wonderful. I highly recommend booking directly through them.
Was aboard the Shear Water for the Tiger and Great Hammerhead Shark expedition in mid-February 2016. Fantastic trip filled with incredible sharks (Tigers, Hammers, Lemon, Reef, Bull, and Nurse) ! The crew was awesome - helpful, informative, and patient - thanks to Mike, Gerard, George, and Carolyn !
I couldn't recommend this trip more highly... book it, it will be the trip of a lifetime for any shark enthusiast!
I started my diving with Jim Abernethy's instructors. I couldn't be more satisfied with all the incredible adventures put together for me with tiger sharks in the Bahamas to whale sharks in Mexico a as well as wrecks and reefs off Florida! The entire staff and crew are there to make it an awesome experience!! I send all my family and friends and they are always happy!! It's always such a great experience!
Super fantastic 3 tank dive. Very professional and very safe. Actually it's the safest dive I have ever done in the many years of diving....50 years! Saw great and wonderful creatures!
Good crew too !
Can't wait for another dive with this group.
This was one of the most enjoyable and pleasurable dive experiences I've had in a long time. The staff was extremely gracious and knowledgeable and assured me that my group and I would have a great time. That was an understatement! When it came to choosing a dive center we wanted to find one that would provide some major adventure and safety (had some not-so-safe dive experiences with a few other companies in the past). We found it. The dive itself was max level awesome! The dive guides rock! Saw sharks, eels, and some incredible sea life. Highly, HIGHLY recommend this company. We will definitely come back.
I spent a week long Southern Bahamas liveaboard trip with MV Shear Water last year. Lots of reef sharks and hammerhead cruise along the walls, the entire diving was amazing, love Bahamas for that! And for MV Shear Water, i would like to rate it 2.5 out of 5, The boat itself has a good size, and enough ourdoor chill area. But the cabin i stayed was a twin shared cabin, but it was too small for two adult male. The food was fine. However, the diving in Bahamas and the crew onboard make it 5 out of 5!
