When you go diving with Scuba Dive Bahamas, you are going on a Bahamas scuba diving journey that will surely become one of the highlights of your visit to islands of the Bahamas. Freeport is the capital of one of the largest islands, Grand Bahama Island. We work with a group of professional local scuba divers, known as the Underwater Explorers Society, that have been exploring the waters of Freeport and Grand Bahama Island since the 1960’s! We pride ourselves on working with this passionate and dedicated team of scuba divers who know the waters off the shores of Freeport like the back of their hand.
With our daily Freeport Afternoon One-Tank Dive, we take divers out for a short but incredible one-tank dive out to a coral reef location. These afternoon trips typically go out to a shallower reef, which is perfect for beginner divers or even more experienced divers looking for a fun but easy dive in Freeport. What makes Freeport such an ideal scuba diving destination is its close proximity to a wide variety of awesome diving sites. These include all kinds of coral reef gardens, ranging from shallow ones to deeper ones, but each one is brimming with marine life.
On the Afternoon One Tank Dive in Freeport, you will likely run into typical reef fish such as the angelfish, the parrotfish, and the butterfly fish, just to mention three out of over a hundred species that live in the Bahamas coral reef gardens. At this dive site, you will also be likely to see sea turtles, lobster, stingray, reef shark, tuna, and of course, the wide assortment of soft and hard coral rock formation. This underwater world looks like an underwater paradise full of color and life. If you are visiting Freeport Bahamas in the near future, do not miss the amazing opportunity of going scuba diving in one of the world’s best destinations for scuba diving!

I have been to the Bahamas many times, but Freeport Bahamas One Tank Afternoon 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 ͡°)
