Diving in Andros

The largest island of the Bahamas, Andros Island, has a population of only 7,000 full-time residents. “Idyllic” is the perfect word to describe this place, which is frequently referred to as “an untouched piece of paradise.” This island is the ideal setting for a quiet, private vacation as you explore the natural wonders of the place. Andros is a warm and sunny paradise almost all year round. Water temperature rarely drops below 80º F (27ºC), and air temperature can vary from warm to hot with 75 to 92º F (24 to 33ºC) between summer and winter seasons. However, avoid traveling from May to October, which is hurricane and rain season. The best time to travel to the Bahamas is from November to May. Arriving at the island of Andros will be an adventure itself. The easiest way to get there is by flying into Lynden Pindling International Airport, formerly known as Nassau International Airport. From there, you can either take a short flight to Andros or take a ferry boat and enjoy the beautiful landscapes. Once in Andros, you will be surrounded by abundant natural attractions and witness the captivating beauty of the place. Diving in Andros, you will be amazed by the hundreds of fish and coral species you will see, as well as by the Andros Barrier Reef, which is one of the largest barrier reefs in the world.
