The crystal clear waters of the Bahamas are a diver’s paradise, offering a wealth of underwater treasures to explore. Whether you are a beginner or a professional diver, the waters surrounding Nassau and Paradise Island offer an excellent choice of diving locations to suit everyone’s tastes and expertise. Spectacular coral reefs, living walls, shipwrecks and intriguing blue holes, not to mention an abundance of tropical marine life, are all just waiting to be discovered during your holiday in the Bahamas.
This stunning archipelago comprises over 700 islands, the majority of which are uninhabited. The island chain is divided by the Tropic of Cancer, which is why the Bahamas is blessed with a tropical climate, despite being located in the Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful weather, combined with white sandy, palm-fringed beaches and clear azure waters − you can’t get much closer to paradise than this.
Bahama Divers, one of the Bahamas’ most established diving operators, invites you to explore the majestic underwater world off the coast of Paradise Island and Nassau, the capital of the Bahamas, on this exciting one-tank diving tour. Enjoy an afternoon submerged in crystal clear waters, exploring awe-inspiring walls, colourful coral reefs and mysterious shipwrecks. Swim with schools of tropical fish, such as Nassau groupers, blue-green parrot fish, flounders, butterfly fish and angel fish, and marvel at all the overwhelming colours, shapes and sizes. You will also see a myriad of other fascinating sea creatures on your journey, such as eagle rays, loggerhead turtles, eels, shrimps, spiny lobsters, octopus, sea anemones and many many more. The coral gardens are a particularly beautiful sight to behold, with their vibrant colours and mixture of hard and soft species. Purple sea fans, black coral, red gorgonians, brain coral and elkorn coral are just some of the types you will come across, many of which thrive on shipwrecks in shallow waters.
There are a number of exciting and mysterious shipwrecks located in the Bahamian waters; some which have sunk due to accidents, some which have been sunk deliberately to act as barrier reefs and others that have been used as Hollywood film sets. The most popular and famous wrecks are those used in the James Bond films Never Say Never Again and Thunderball.
Whichever dive sites you visit, an exhilarating underwater adventure will certainly enhance your holiday in the Bahamas and give you plenty of exciting memories to take home with you.
