The Graycliff Cigar Company began production in January 1997 in Nassau, The Bahamas. What then began as a single roller in the restaurant entrance way has now expanded to an award winning boutique Cigar Company with 16 master rollers, each an expert in their various format.


Graycliff Cigar Company's original blend - The Graycliff - was blended by the late Master Torcedore Avelino Lara. Once Fidel Castro's personal roller, Lara was famous for his creations at the El Laguito Factory outside of Havana, where he created blends for Cohiba, Davidoff and among others.


Since Lara's retirement in 2000, Enrico Garzaroli and Paolo Garzaroli have collaborated on creating all of the new blends manufactured at the award-winning Graycliff Cigar Company from the Graycliff Professionale to the more affordable lines: Cabinet Selection, G2 and Bahiba (available only in The Bahamas). Each blend is created to please the palate of different cigar smokers - from the buttery Emerald to the smooth and silky Chateau Grand Cru and powerful Espresso.


Graycliff Cigars' numerous awards include: France's Club Cigare's 2001 Cigar of the Year Award; The Robb Report's Best of the Best in 2003 for the Crystal, the Espresso in 2004 and Chateau Grand Cru in 2006; and many accolades from Top25Cigars.com including Best Boutique Cigar Company.

The coral formations and abundance of fish and other sea life makes the Bahamian coast line a particularly exciting place to snorkel.

You will either move to a different shallow reef- every reef has its own features and highlights- or snorkel over one of the many shallow water wrecks off of the Nassuvian Coast.  While the wrecks tend to be a bit deeper than the shallow reefs, they are big enough to deliver quite an impression.


After completing your second snorkelling dive you will climb back aboard the boat and head toward the pier.
