There is no better place for memorable and awe-inspiring scuba diving than in Nassau Bahamas. This capital city is located with a short boat ride to dozens of excellent scuba diving opportunities, including all kinds of fascinating wreck dives and countless coral reef gardens. The year-round warm waters of the Bahamas provide divers with the ideal conditions for a successful and unforgettable diving trip.
With our daily Two Tank Afternoon Dives, we take you to two of the premier diving destinations off the shores of Nassau. We do our best to take you to one shipwreck dive followed by a coral reef dive. These dive sites usually begin at about 40 feet deep, though you will definitely find some that are a little deeper. The diving is great for both beginner and expert divers, as you get to choose just how deep you want to go during your dive. The shipwreck sites are a unique experience for Bahamas scuba divers, as many of these wrecks have been underwater for decades, allowing them to develop naturally as an artificial reef for the wide variety of marine species that live in the waters of the Bahamas. Some of the typical wreck sites that we go to include the huge 100-foot freighter at 50 foot depths, the James Bond wreck from the films at 40 feet in depths, or the Cessna from the Jaws movies.
The second part of your dive takes you out to either a spot on the extensive coral reef system of the Bahamas or to one of the several shipwrecks that are found here. The coral reef off the coast of Nassau is one of the most extensive, diverse and populated in the world. Here, you will see all kinds of tropical and bright reef fish as well as larger pelagic species. You will also be likely to encounter other sea creatures including sea turtles, stingrays, manta rays, eel and even some friendly and completely harmless reef shark! So whether you are an advanced diver with years of experience or pretty new to the world of scuba diving, this afternoon two-tank wreck and reef dive will be perfect for you!

Can my non-diving partner come on the dive?
Yes. While your partner will not be able to participate in the dive itself they can come along as a rider and enjoy the trip with you.
Is There a restroom on the boat?
Yes. There is a restroom or "Marine Head" for use on the boat.
What about sharks and other sea creatures?
With all the media hype it's understandable why people often ask this question but the truth is that unprovoked shark attacks are very, very rare and attacks on scuba divers are even more rare. Our staff, divers and dive masters are all trained in making sure your dive is safe and enjoyable.
How long are you underwater?
Length of time underwater for these dives completely depends on the depth of the dive. You can expect to be under water for 25-40 minutes for dives 40-60 feet and about 35-45 minutes for dives less than 40 feet deep.

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Nassau Two Tank Afternoon Wreck & 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 ͡°)
