Best dive sites in Grand Bahama (Freeport)

There are nearly 50 dive sites immediately surrounding Grand Bahama Island with several more located within a short boat ride offshore. If you’re here for the shark diving, don’t miss Tiger Beach or Shark Junction. Popular wreck dives include Theo’s Wreck and Sugar Wreck at Grand Bahama. You should also check out Jose’s Wreck, a tugboat that balances on two separate corals. You can actually swim under the boat to see the hidden wildlife beneath, a rare treat! For walls and coral reefs, divers can head to the shallow reefs of Silver Reef and Sanctuary Reef or the medium-depth reefs such as Angel Camp and The Chamber. There are also a few deep reefs for advanced divers like Gail’s Grotto and Tunnels.

Snorkeling in Grand Bahama (Freeport)

As a popular tourist destination, Grand Bahama Island has plenty of snorkeling opportunities. Many of the best sites are located offshore and accessible only to guests on boat tours. However, Paradise Cove and Peterson Cay both have snorkeling spots within swimming distance of shore. If you are interested, several operators on the island provide combination tours with sightseeing, adventure activities and snorkeling throughout the day.

What to see

Animals flock to the extensive barrier reef that borders the islands, the third largest in the world. You can see leatherback turtles during certain seasons. During a reef dive, watch for nurse sharks as they rest quietly on the seafloor, or one of the several species of rays that call these waters home.

In deeper waters, look out for the Nassau Grouper, a fantastically large fish that can only be found off the shores of the Bahamas.

If you’ve ever been tempted by the thought of shark diving, Freeport is the place to finally bite the bullet. There are several different sharks to dive with, but tiger sharks are the most popular. You can dive a cage, or without, depending on your comfort level.

Another favorite water activity in Freeport is swimming or diving with dolphins. There are few other places in the world where you can swim with playful dolphins in the wild. Tucked into a protected lagoon, you can interact with these beautiful creatures, relaxing in the waters.
