Diving the Bahamas

A vast archipelago of about 900 islands and islets, the Bahamas are a dream-come-true destination for travelers in search of long, fine sand beaches, calm, luxury... and sharks! The country reached stardom after a certain British spy drank a few Vodka Martini there, but it also sports the third largest barrier reef in the world, making it a much sought-after getaway for divers.

The Bahamas are geographically and culturally very close to the United States and they offer enough variety in dive sites to satisfy every divers' needs! There are three main diving areas: the Andros archipelago, Grand Bahama and Long Island, best known for the freedivers Mecca 'Dean's Blue Hole'.

Snorkelers will love the calm and turquoise waters, the warm temperatures all year round and the hundreds of colourful fish keeping busy in the shallows. For the curious divers, interested in a grand show put up by Nature itself, do not miss the Great Lobster March in Little Bahamas and Bimini early November, or the groupers mating 'en masse' near Andros and Long Island between the end of January and early February! History fans will find enough wrecks to quench their insatiable thirst: planes, steamboats, ships, tankers, and even underwater movie sets... Now if you want to stick to some natural topography, the Bahamas have also a few drop-off and walls covered in hard and soft corals, with protruding tube sponges and colourful flora! Those cliffs are home to a very diverse tropical fauna and a lot of invertebrates hiding in the tunnels, swim-throughs, mazes and caves that you can find on their sides.

The divers in search of a good thrill will opt for a few shark dives! Most of the dive companies in the Bahamas offer this product, especially around New Providence, the Cays and along the outter reef at the Abacos. The well-named dive site 'Tiger Beach' is a must... Last but not least, the Blue Holes. They are a local specialty, with a few a them around Andros and Grand Bahama. Dean's, on Long Island, is the deepest, clocking at 220m deep and 76m wide! If you cannot dive them all, we recommend that you try this last one.

A genuine family fun destination, the Bahamas offer diving conditions and activities that will suit all divers no matter what their experience and levels are: discover, explore and enjoy!
