Diving in the Bahamas

The Bahamas is an archipelago that consists of more than 700 small, tropical islands. This paradise is located about 300 miles off the southeastern tip of Florida. The variety of islands make it possible to choose between multiple types of adventures. You can decide to go on an exciting, action-packed trip in the capital of The Bahamas, Nassau, or go on a more quiet, slow-paced vacation on Andros. The easiest way to get to this captivating place is by arriving at the International Airport at Nassau, and from there catch a local charter to the island you wish to visit.

Diving in The Bahamas is a thrilling experience. Many adventures are waiting for every level of diver. Explore the sunken Spanish galleons and the deep blue sinkholes that descend into underwater cave systems. The Bahamas’ marine life includes vast and colorful coral reefs, which make it a perfect spot for diving. One of the best shark dive sites in the world can be found here. The combination of breathtaking underwater life and spectacular topside sights make the Bahamas a perfect location. The Bahamas islands are worldwide known for their white sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters, excellent fishing, and lively locals. You can’t miss the Junkanoo Carnival, which is celebrated every May and is a festival full of music, dances, and masks.
