BAHAMAS
Click for Nassau, Bahamas Forecast

The Bahamas. So close, yet so far away. The Bahamas chain is within a scant 50 miles from the coast of Florida, but in that 50 miles you cross into another dimension. A time and place without worries, a relaxing atmosphere, and friendly people. Even though you can reach the Bahamas in less than an hour's flight from the Florida coast, the country's natural beauty and exotic appeal make it seem more like a far-flung outpost. The water ranges from pale aqua to deep sapphire, the spectrum changing hourly as the relentless Bahamian sun sweeps across the island sky.

You can choose an island with lots of activities, shopping, dining and nightlife. Or maybe an island where few other people will be seen, and the afternoon activities include swinging in your hammock and watching the sun fall from the edge of the earth. It's up to you.

The islands offer some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the world. Every island is rimmed by coral reefs, and the waters offer exceptional visibility and year-round temperatures that make wetsuits unnecessary. There are plentiful ship and plane wrecks to explore - even a train off Eleuthera. The Bahamas is renowned for wall dives along the sheer-faced trenches at the edges of the Bahama Banks. There are also blue holes, caves, shallow reefs, shark and dolphin dives, drift dives, incredible night dives and more. If you enjoy snorkeling, all of the islands offer clear, shallow areas.

And the visibility, how about an average of 100'+, and 200' not an uncommon occurance. Dive services range from small personal 6-paks where you may be one of the few on the boat, to large personal operations with multiple boats where you will get a chance to meet and dive with scuba enthusiasts from all over the world. Where will you dive? The choices are yours to make.
