Diving + Snorkeling on the Bahamas

Bahamas, Caribbean's insider take:

The Bahamas are famed for their diving diversity. The country's coral reefs, blue holes, caves, shipwrecks, and rich marine life are all popular draws for underwater explorers. On Grand Bahama Island, UNEXSO goes beyond the norm with shark dives for scuba enthusiasts. It also awards advance diver certificates. Try the Open Ocean Dolphin Experience, which takes place not in the usual lagoon but a mile offshore in the dolphins' natural habitat (Port Lucaya, Grand Bahama Island; 800-992-3483; Valentine's Dive Center will also introduce you to one of the fastest drift dives in the world at Current Cut Dive: up to nine knots, escorted by hammerhead sharks and stingrays (Bay St., Harbour Island; 242-333-2080;; Closed Sept.–Oct.). On the Abaco islands, Treasure Divers is a good option for some serious exploration, where certified divers can inspect the 200-year-old wreck of a freighter (Treasure Cay Marina, Abaco Island; 242-357-6796; Andros Island has one thing the other islands don't have: The world's third-longest reef, with its famed Tongue of the Ocean dive, which gets the adrenaline running among scuba enthusiasts eager to tackle its mysterious blue holes, with the help of local outfitters such as Andros Diving (Andros Beach Club, South Andros Island; 954-681-4818; booking at least a week ahead strongly advised).
