Bahama Divers Snorkeling Excursion
Duration: Half Day
The Bahamas is a world-class diving destination, boasting crystal clear waters, beautiful coral reefs, an abundance of marine life and a wealth of shipwrecks and natural wonders to explore. The waters surrounding Nassau and Paradise Island offer an excellent choice of diving and snorkeling locations to suit all levels of experience. This tour will take you to one of the most popular snorkeling sites in the area with one of the Bahamas’ most established diving operators.
The Bahamas archipelago comprises over 2000 cays and 700 islands, the majority of which are uninhabited. The island chain is divided by the Tropic of Cancer, which is why this beautiful country is blessed with a tropical climate, despite being situated in the Atlantic Ocean. Boasting pristine white sandy beaches, lush tropical flora and warm, crystal clear turquoise lagoons, this paradise destination is a delight to explore – both above and below the water.
Bahama Divers, one of the country’s leading diving operators, runs exciting underwater expeditions for new and experienced divers, giving everyone the chance to explore the majestic underwater world off the coast of Paradise Island and Nassau.
This awe-inspiring snorkeling adventure will take you to one of several exciting snorkeling locations, which include Thunderball Reef, which was used during several of the James Bond movies; Angelfish Reef, renowned for its large number of Grey, Queen and French angelfish, and also White Hole, a circular patch of sand surrounded by coral. Many species such as brain coral, mountainous star coral, elkorn coral, red gorgonians, purple sea fans and large flower coral thrive in shallow waters and attract hundreds of beautiful tropical reef fish. The bright vivid colours of the coral gardens and fish are a breathtaking sight to behold.
LTC Barge is also a popular snorkeling site. The barge sits upright in about 20 feet of water, which you can enter by swimming through the wheelhouse. Large schools of angel fish can be spotted here, and many other small tropical fish species.
The marine life and underwater landscapes will change depending on the site you snorkel at, but you can be certain of swimming with many schools of exotic fish, including blue-green parrot fish, flounders, butterfly fish, angel fish, Nassau groupers and many more species of all shapes, sizes and colours. You are also likely to see a myriad of other fascinating sea creatures such as eagle rays, sea turtles, moray eels, shrimps, spiny lobsters, octopus, sea anemones, starfish and many, many more. Discovering the beauty and diversity of the ocean is a must during your holiday in the Bahamas.
