Stuart Cove's Wilderness Seafari

Duration: Half Day

stuart cove's wilderness seafari

The Bahamas is renowned for offering some of the best snorkelling and diving spots in the world. With 700 tropical islands to choose from, offering beautiful white sands, clear turquoise waters, spectacular coral reefs and an abundance of sea life, you will certainly be spoilt for choice during your Caribbean holiday.

This exciting day trip will give divers a chance to experience some of the Bahamas’ Out Islands, which include all of the Bahamas except the major islands of New Providence, Paradise Island and Grand Bahama. Your day trip will begin by travelling approximately 25 miles to the beautiful Andros Island, which lies across the other side of the Tongue of the Ocean, the name given to a deep oceanic trench which separates Andros Island from New Providence Island.

Andros Island is the largest island in the Bahamas, and one of the least explored areas in the Western hemisphere. Out of all the Out Islands, it is also the least developed. An area of natural beauty, Andros Island’s tropical climate attracts an abundance of wildlife – both in and out of the water. Scuba diving enthusiasts visit the island for a number of reasons. One is to experience 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. It is also the habitat of a myriad of exciting marine species.
Both sides of this reef offer plenty of adventure for both beginners and the more experienced divers; the shore side offering quiet, calm waters and the ocean side offering a challenge, plunging to a depth of over 100 miles towards the Tongue of the Ocean. You will see magnificent coral growth here and amazing marine life, such as yellowtail snapper, barracuda, crawfish, sea turtles, upside-down jellyfish, octopus, damsel fish, parrot fish, eagle rays, snake eels and many more.

The more experienced, thrill-seeking diving enthusiasts are also attracted to Andros Island because of its fascinating Blue Holes. These intriguing and complex underwater cave systems were formed when the ceilings of large caves collapsed, leaving large, deep-water basins in the shallow flats and exposing vertical shafts. The name “Blue Hole” simply derives from their deep blue colour, which can be seen when viewed from the air, distinguishing them from the colour of the ocean. Andros Island is home to hundreds of blue holes − both in the ocean and inland. Exhilarating to explore, with their flooded tunnels, caverns and canyons, these holes are some of the most unique and mysterious aquatic caves in the world.

This awe-inspiring day trip offers underwater cave and coral reef exploration at its best.
