The diving in the Bahamas is quite nice - the water is quite warm and there is definitely an opportunity to see some exotic sea life. The coral was also particularly abundant in the Bahamas. We dove between Paradise Island and Nassau. We weren't lucky enough to spot any dolphins this trip, but we were told that our dive company took Leonardo DiCaprio diving the day before!
Anyhow, although I would recommend taking a dive in the Bahamas, it wasn't one of my favorite dive destinations.
Well... the two days that it didn't rain we swam with the dolphins and did an under sea walk (snubaing).
The dolphin thing was fun, especially for small children but everyone enjoys it. The under sea walk was awful! The water was two degrees and we were lead around on a little pole as the guide pointed to dead coral.
If you're a diver, check out Stuart Cove's South Ocean. I've been diving with them about 6 times now and they're always fun and professional. The shark dive is clearly one of the world's ten best dives.
Warm clear water. Carribean reef sharks.
Go snorkeling....we had a local man take us out on his old sailboat to a reef. It was much cheaper and the reef was all ours. If you go on the large boats you end up with 25 or more people trying to all snorkel together...if your at a resort ask the workers if they have a friend who will take you out to a reef.... and dont forget to bring the bagels. The fish will come right up to you and eat out of your hand.
the waters in the Caribbean are pretty incredible. if you don't go snorkeling you're missing something special.
The water is beautiful and very clear. At Paradise Bay, behind the rocks, the rocks drop off and there is a beautiful open and wild area filled with exotic fish.
Bring your underwater cameras!
This was pretty neat. The Atlantis Submarine takes you to an abyss and is a great opportunity to see sea life without getting wet.;-) Great for young kids.
