Two Eco-Friendly Tips for Bahamas Scuba Diving
We love sharing our bright turquoise, and crystal clear waters with our guests, and love getting to show off our abundance of wildlife in our unique the ecosystem, called the coral reef. We only ask that before boarding one of our scuba diving trips that you try to be as eco-friendly, in order to protect the coral reef of the Bahamas so that future generations may be able to enjoy them one day. If you are not sure how to be eco-friendly on your scuba dive in the Bahamas, then we ask that you follow the two tips.
Be Conscious of Your Surroundings
It is imperative that we explain that you know your surroundings, in a sense that you do not swim into or chip or damage the work the polyps of the coral reef have done. Anyone can destroy literally thousands of years of work these polyps have been buildings in a matter of seconds. So before getting in the water, we ask that you think about your actions, and try to swim gracefully as you scuba dive the waters around the islands of the Bahamas. Scuba diving is one of the best things to do in the Bahamas, and it gives you the chance to get up close and personal with marine life you would normally have a glass pane between. So in order to keep balance in the marine ecology, we ask that you only look, but don’t touch, and try to be as aware of your surroundings as much as possible on you Bahamas scuba diving trip.
Take What Doesn’t Belong
The best eco-friendly tip we can offer to anyone is to take out the trash. Meaning, if you see any object(s) that are foreign to that surrounding and the natural balance, take it with you and put it in the right place. And this goes for more than just the ocean while on your Bahamas scuba diving trip, this can go for any beaches, forest hiking trails, or nature preserves that you find has litter. You’d be surprised how much would get cleaned up if everyone took something they spotted that didn’t belong. This is the only exception to the rule of taking anything from your surroundings of natural habitat.
