Insider’s View

The Bahamas is in West Indies in the Atlantic Ocean, hurricane season officially lasts from June to September however, up until hurricane Dorian in September 2019 little more than heavy thunderstorms and showers braced this nation. Best time to visit this Caribbean destination is from November to June ensuring a fabulous warm winter diving getaway that will not disappoint!

Diving in the Bahamas is exciting especially if you are a pelagic lover, most dive operators offer the famous shark dive where you will be surrounded by hundreds of sharks! There are plenty of other dive spots to discover including some beautiful walls that drop off 6000 feet into the blue, as well as many wonderful reefs boasting a variety and marine life. You could even explore a 100ft freighter, the famous James Bond wreck or the Cessna which was used in the making of JAWS!

Another way to visit the Bahamas to reach more of the sensational dive sites on offer is by liveaboard. Routes do vary depending on season and include Tiger Beach, The Exumas and Bimini. Here you will enjoy pristine outer reefs, colourful walls, a wide variety of sharks, abundance of marine life as well massive schools of fish.
