Single cabin diving liveaboard Bahamas
The Caribbean and the Bahamas is on many scuba diver’s bucket list. The Bahamas is a coral-based archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean.
It has over 700 islands and cays in total, which range from small uninhabited islands to the larger ones which are packed with tourists and resorts.
Scuba diving and snorkeling sites include the massive Andros Barrier Reef, Thunderball Grotto, which was used in James Bond films, the black-coral gardens off Bimini and the Tiger Shark Dive at Tiger Beach.
If you are planning your diving holiday to the Bahamas and you’re single, this makes things slightly more difficult as a solo diver.
But as a solo traveller and diver and without a dive buddy, you will soon discover that a liveaboard is the best option.
If you’re travelling alone and you’re looking to explore the underwater world of the Caribbean, but in particular the Bahamas, a liveaboard dive boat with single cabins is the way to go.

The Scuba Diving Earth Luxury Rating (SDE Lux Rating) is explained on each liveaboard review when you click the “Discover Liveaboard” link, and is my own Liveaboard Luxury Rating I’ve assigned to all liveaboards. Choosing between liveaboards is helped by customer scores, and if you get stuck choosing between two or three liveaboards, where each one has a high customer score out of 10, you can use the SDE Luxury Rating to help narrow down your choice.
Think about it like using Booking.com when searching for the best hotel. Booking.com also use a customer score where each customer rates hotels out of 10. This is similar to the liveaboard customer rating, which is also rated out of 10. But let’s say you only like to stay in hotels rated 8 and above on Booking.com, but you also want the hotel to have WIFI or parking, or to have a swimming pool etc. The features each hotel has is usually secondary to the score out of 10.
