Come explore the wondrous underwater environment off the coast of Nassau. Our company has been diving these waters and instructing newcomers for over 40 years. Our One Tank Afternoon dive will take you on an unforgettable venture to one of the most intriguing diving locations in the Caribbean.
Some of the typical dive sites include the Thunderball Reef, which happens to be one of the most frequently filmed underwater settings including several scenes from various James Bond movies. The reef is found at an accessible 25 feet under the surface. Be prepared to see a fascinating collection of coral reef formations including Elkhorn and Staghorn coral, as well as hundreds of species of marine animals that make their home in the coral reef. Watch as grouper, yellowtail snapper, sergeant majors, and even the occasional barracuda make their way past you. This is a great site for both divers and snorkelers.
Another potential diving location you can go to is the White Hole which houses hundreds of vibrant tropical reef fish. The White Hole is a circular indentation in the ocean floor where you will find all types of coral formations. A large World War II troop carrier, the LCT Barge, sits at 20 feet of water here. We urge you to take advantage of your chance to explore some of the most awe-inspiring underwater environments in the world.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Nassau Afternoon One Tank Reef Dive is one of my favorite trips! It includes everything that everyone should do here. As a Bahamas veteran, I can say only the best about this experience!
Thanks to the professional guides! I was a bit worried about kayaking because I had never done it before, but the instructions were great and I had such a good time!
The best way to discover nature! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
