Are you looking for an adventure-filled vacation? If so, consider a Bahamas scuba and fishing charter! Whether you are an avid scuba diver and plan to spend most of your holiday underwater or have friends and family who prefer their fun above the sea, a luxury yacht charter in the Bahamas will keep everyone happy.
Why the Bahamas for Scuba Diving and Fishing?
The Bahamas is one of the best places in the world for fishing and scuba diving. And since the Bahamas are less than 50 miles from the United States, it is an ideal escape for those looking for an amazing fishing and scuba diving experience.
Scuba divers will find a variety of marine life, such as manta rays, nurse sharks, moray eels, octopuses, morays, sea turtles, and more.
Whether you’re just starting diving or fishing or if you are a long-time diver or angler, the Bahamas has something for you. As for fishing, the Bahamian waters teem with blue marlin, tuna, sailfish, king mackerel, grouper, tarpon, snapper, and barracuda.
What Islands Should I Visit?
Although all Bahamas islands are incredible, a few stand out regarding scuba diving and fishing.
- Abaco Islands. Diving in the Abaco Islands is perfect for beginners since the water is calm and shallow.
- Andros. Andros is another good location for beginner scuba divers. Experience blue holes, caves, wrecks, and the third-largest barrier reef in the world.
- Eleuthera & Harbour Island. Eleuthera and Harbour Island are home to many shipwrecks, coral reefs, and walls. Divers of all skill levels will appreciate the variety of depths here.
- Bimini. Although Bimini is famous for its shark dives, there are other protected reefs and shallow wrecks to explore. The Gulf Stream flows past Bimini creating fast-paced drifts that are best for experienced divers.
- Nassau (New Providence). Nassau has many wrecks that attract marine life, such as the Nassau grouper and sea turtles.
