Diving in the Bahamas

Majestic coral reefs, historic shipwrecks, spectacular walls, mysterious caverns and intriguing blue holes are all just waiting to be explored during your scuba diving holiday in the Bahamas, whilst the impressive array of tropical marine life will simply take your breath away. Swim with dolphins, sharks and schools of tropical fish such as Nassau groupers, blue-green parrot fish, flounders, butterfly fish and angel fish, amongst majestic coral gardens bursting with colour.

 

Depending on where you dive in the Bahamas, you are likely to see a myriad of other sea creatures on your journey, including eagle rays, loggerhead turtles, eels, shrimps, spiny lobsters, octopus, sea anemones and many more. The diversity is incredible and truly unforgettable, due to the fact that the Bahamas is protected by the magnificent Andros Island barrier reef, which, at over 140 miles long, is the third largest barrier reef in the world after Australia's Great Barrier and Central America's Belize Barrier Reef.

 

Discover this awe-inspiring underwater world for yourself, choosing from hundreds of fascinating dive sites off main islands such as Grand Bahama Island and Paradise Island, or the famous Out Islands such as Andros Island and Eleuthera. This is just a handful of the most popular diving sites and spots you can explore in one of the most beautiful archipelagos in the world. As you would expect, there is an excellent choice of dive centres in the Bahamas, with experienced staff on hand to give you all the training, assistance and equipment you require. Full of wonder and challenges, scuba diving in the Bahamas is just one big adventure in paradise – and a must for the serious diver.
