Bahamas

The Bahamas are an archipelagic set of around 700 islands that consist of islands, cays and islets located just north of Cuba. The islands of the Bahamas live in a winterless climate with temperatures rarely dropping below 24 degrees. In fact, there is only around 8 degrees difference between the coolest and warmest month in the Bahamas! There are a number of factors that draw tourists from all over the world to the Bahamas each year including such attractions as the Blue Holes National Park, swimming with the pigs, local culture and events and more.

With 470,000 square kilometres of ocean space, the dive sites in the Bahamas are truly plentiful. One such area, the Exuma Cays Land and Sea Park, is a 283 square kilometre area of reef, cay and sea that is highly regarded amongst divers. The area is accessible by private boat or charter only, meaning empty dive sites with flourishing marine life. The world’s third largest fringing reef can be found in the Bahamas, offering a myriad of tropical reef fish, sponges, corals and underwater landscapes with everything from coral gardens to plunging wall dives. If that’s not enough, there are a number of divable wrecks in the Bahamas including Pretender’s wreck, Papa Doc Wreck, Theo’s Wreck, The Train wreck, Etheridge wreck and more.

With options for families, couples, honeymooners, adventurers, divers and more… the Bahamas should most definitely be on your destination bucketlist!
