Nassau

  • Lost Blue Hole -The rim of this large blue hole lies in 40' of water surrounded by coral heads, sting rays and many schools of fish.
  • Periwinkle Reef -This is a shallow patch reef that is teaming with fish.

Exumas

  • Amberjack Reef - A 50' patch reef that was the site of our Exumas shark feeding dive.
  • Austin Smith Wreck - A 90' Bahamian Defense Force Cutter that sank in 1995 while being towed to San Salvador to be sunk there as a dive site. This wreck has many sharks swimming around it and a wall just to the east.
  • Barracuda Shoals - This bankside patch reef has huge schools of fish as well as many small critters on the reef and surrounding sand.
  • Cracked Coral Head - This massive coral head rises 40' off the bottom. Several large swim-thru's make it looked like it is cracked.
  • Dog Rocks - This reef starts at 35' and slopes off to 50' before dropping straight down into the Exuma Sound. This is one of the best dives in the Bahamas. Many pelagics frequent this reef, especially eagle rays and sharks.
  • Jeep Reef - This is one of the prettiest reefs you will ever see. The strong current that sweeps through this cut keeps the reef’s corals very healthy.
  • Pillar Wall - One of many excellent wall dives.There are many caves and crevices. There is a large colony of yellowhead jawfish in the rubble inside the reef.
  • The Washing Machine - The strong incoming tide of up to 6 mph takes scuba divers thru a narrow cut where water drops off a ledge and then makes a sharp bend to the left. This causes the water to swirl like the water in a washing machine.
  • Wax Cut Drift - Divers and Snorkelers alike fly over this 30' reef at over 2 knots. You will see rays, sharks, eels and numerous fish as you drift with the current in the cut between the islands.
  • Whale Shark Wall - This wall is named for the whale sharks that have frequented this area for several winters. Like all of our walls, when you stare into the abyss, you never know what you might see.
  • Whale Tail Wall - A great wall just south of Wax Cut. Large parrotfish roam the sand inside the reef while sharks & eagle rays are frequently seen off the wall.

Southwest Eleuthera

  • Cave Rock - The large variety of corals and fish will amaze you. We have frequently seen Hammerhead Sharks here.
  • Jake's Hole -The highlight of this dive is the vibrant corals surrounding the hole. Because it is very tidal, scuba divers aren't permitted to enter the hole.
  • Monolith - Large mounds of coral rise out of the sand at the edge of the wall. They start at 100' and rise to 55'. There is a colony of Garden Eels in the sand next to the mounds.
