  • Nassau Bahamas– Dive with the Shark (Mar 7th-12th)

    Posted by Vic Huang on

    • Departure Date: Mar 7th, 2023 (Tue)
    • Return Date: Mar 12th, 2023 (Sun)

    The sheer size of the Bahamas is breathtaking. You'll find the third-largest barrier reef offshore, plus deep walls, wrecks, blue holes, tunnels, caverns, and some of the best shark diving in the world.

    Waters off New Providence provide drop-offs that are close to shore, blue holes, caves, historical wrecks, and thrilling shark diving. Directly exposed to the Atlantic, the pristine reefs of the Abacos have relatively shallow dive sites – 18m or less.

    Andros has wrecks and blue holes. Grand Bahama Island gives you the chance to see dolphins. The warm waters of Bimini are filled with life, while Eleuthera and Harbor Island offer a rip-roaring drift dive. The Exumas have a combination of walls and rich shallow reefs, and San Salvador boasts vertical walls, underwater caverns, and wrecks.

    There are dives to enjoy around the entire perimeter of New Providence, though many of the favorites can be found on the western side of the island.

    Schools of silversides prefer the cover of Nassau’s many wrecks. Nassau grouper and sea turtles swim among the healthy coral reefs, and stingrays camouflage themselves on the sandy bottom.

    There are also huge animals, including an impressive array of sharks. Caribbean reef sharks and silky sharks are common visitors. The occasional tiger shark wanders by. Keep a lookout for dolphins, as well, frolicking just offshore.
