With easy reef dives, colorful walls, wrecks and even a few blue holes, the Exumas are home to sharks, diverse fish life and the clear blue waters that define liveaboard diving in the Bahamas.
Sheltered from the Atlantic, the Exumas are known for their shallow coral reefs and colorful walls. Most diving here is easy enough for beginners. Currents are minimal along the reefs, and several shallow sunken ships offer a splendid introduction to wreck diving. Shark feeds are also popular, so many liveaboards will feature at least one shark dive. For more advanced divers, the Exumas have several blue holes and an extensive underwater cave system. While it’s possible to reach a number of reefs from shore, you’ll need to travel by liveaboard to see all the best sites. Typical liveaboard itineraries last 6 to 7 days, and the best time to dive in the Bahamas is from October to June.
