Neal Watson's Bimini Scuba Center At Bimini Sands Resort & Marina In The Bahamas Offers Hassle-Free All-Inclusive Dive Vacations For Fall & Winter

Bimini, a Bahamas "Out Island" just 50 miles east of South Florida, is known for its pristine reef, wreck and wall dives; vibrant blue water; translucent underwater visibility, and the rich diversity of its sea life - particularly "big animals" like sharks, dolphins and rays. This fall and winter, divers can enjoy hassle-free All-Inclusive Dive Vacations of three nights/two days and longer with Neal Watson's Bimini Scuba Center at Bimini Sands Resort & Marina. Rates start at just $732 per person/per night for a three-night vacation, based on quadruple condo occupancy.

"You're on vacation; we'll do the work," says Guinness World Record-holding diver Neal Watson, who operates the new dive center. Neal Watson's Bimini Scuba Center prides itself on providing divers with ultimate in customer service - including pick-ups and drop-offs at the dock by their accommodations, washing and storing their dive gear at the end of the day, and delivering it, tanks full, the next morning. The Bimini Scuba Center features the 40-ft. custom dive boat Dive God; new Oceanic dive equipment rentals; a commercial compressor for tank refills, and the only Nitrox fill station on Bimini.

What's more, most of the island's best dive sites, like the wreck of the concrete ship Sapona, Victory Reef and Tuna Alley, are less than an hour's run from the dock. "Why spend your day riding when you could be diving?" asks Watson.

Designed for the diver in search of eco-adventure combined with pampering and relaxation, Neal Watson's Bimini Scuba Center Fall/Winter 2013-2014 All-Inclusive Dive Vacation Packages include the following:
