Bucket list diving in the Bahamas

The Bahamas

Take a look at the latest press release from the Bahamas Tourist Office:

Want to tick every type of dive off your bucket list? Then The Bahamas is the place to head for, with one of the worlds’ largest barrier reef, there is an abundance of wrecks, walls and reef dives scattered throughout these islands. Have a family dive adventure at UNEXSO on Grand Bahama Island, perfect for those who are not certified but would like to try diving out. Search out the spectacular shark dives such as the Hammerheads at Bimini, the Tiger Sharks off Grand Bahama Island and Caribbean Reef Sharks with Stuart Cove’s.   
Such is the almost spiritual allure of these most majestic predators of the food chain that they command the greatest respect of not only marine biologists, divers and underwater photographers but also the Government of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas. Back in July 2011 the Fisheries Resources Act was passed to prohibit all commercial shark fishing, sale and trade in shark products in The Bahamas, which will permanently protect more than 40 species of shark in Bahamian waters.
Nick and Caroline Robertson-Brown, the photo-journalist diving duo also known as Frogfish, have produced a number of spectacular dive magazine spreads during 2016, their first book together World’s Best Dive Sites which features several chapters on The Bahamas, as does their newly launching book Deadly Oceans, available on
It’s certainly not all breath-taking adrenalin diving in The Bahamas, if you or your holiday companions aren’t so deeply committed to the extreme dive experience maybe dip into one of the less technically challenging options, such as Snuba.  Now available through Bimini Undersea and through Stuart Cove, both at Atlantis Paradise Island and the Stuart Cove’s Dive Operation, Snuba highlights the best of both the snorkelling and dive experience without the extensive training. 
If deep water dives are a bit beyond you, try a SUB – the personal submersible craft that will have you gliding underwater enjoying the marine life, without even getting your hair wet.
