Nassau Snuba Adventure


  • Experience a Truly Unique Way of Exploring the Underwater Coral Reef Systems of the Bahamas with Our SNUBA Trips (SNUBA stands for Surface Nexus Underwater Breathing Appartaus)
  • The SNUBA Gear Allows You to See More than You Would on Snorkeling Trips, but no Expensive or Time-Consuming Instruction or Certification is Required
  • Easy and Fun for Anyone Who Knows How to Swim

Tour Summary

Snuba is for adventurous travelers who want to explore the wonders of the sea! Unlike with scuba diving excursions, Snuba trips do not require special certification. All you need to join us for a Snuba trip is to know how to swim and be ready for an unforgettable experience as you explore the wondrous coral reef gardens of the Bahamas. And as we are sure you have heard, the coral reefs off the coast of the Bahamas are some of the best in the world! No visit to the Bahamas is truly complete without either a Bahamas scuba diving, snorkeling, or now SNUBA expedition!

Snuba combines two time-honored water activities, snorkeling and scuba diving (hence the combination name of "snuba"), by using techniques from both. You breathe out of a snorkel and tube like in snorkeling, but with snuba you get to actually dive well beneath the surface of the water by using weights and belts, like in scuba diving. Snuba actually allows you to go up to 20 feet beneath the surface of the water, but you get to control just how deep or shallow you want to go. This activity is fun and easy for anyone who knows how to swim! It really brings you right up close to the mysterious and colorful world beneath the surface of the sea.

When you go on our Nassau Snuba Adventure, you get the chance to see the magical world of the Bahamas coral reef gardens. These trips depart twice every day and we work with the most professional and trained crew around. Even is snuba is something completely new to you, we will teach you how to use the gear to make the most out of your trip! If you love the ocean and you want to try something new, our crew will be sure to guide you the whole way to open your eyes to a magical underwater world!

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Nassau Snuba Adventure 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!
