We invite you to explore the exhilarating undersea environment off the shores of Paradise Island and Nassau, Bahamas. With over 40 years in the scuba diving business, our company is the most well-established dive operator in the Bahamas.
The One Tank Afternoon Dive expedition will venture to one of the most intriguing dive sites in the Bahamas. The following are some of the possible locales: Thuderball Reef is one of the most filmed undersea vistas in the world. The spectacular setting for several James Bond films, Thunderball Reef is renowned for the fantastic stand of Elkhorn and Staghorn corals.
A wonderful array of prismatic fish inhabits this 25' deep reef. Beginning in 5 feet of water, this coral garden is perfect for snorkelers as well as divers. Another site that also appears in many movies is Cannonball Reef. Also known for its fantastic snorkeling and shallow diving alike, the reef is home to schools of yellow-tail snappers and sergeant majors. Groupers, squirrel fish, and the occasional Barracuda can also be spotted around this pristine teeming habitat. The name of this diving location speaks for itself: Angelfish Reef. Home to plentiful Grey, Queen, and French Angel fish, this site is shallow and ideal for snorkelers and divers alike.
Other exotic marine species found in this spot include Puffer fish, Star fish, Yellow Sting Rays and Conchs. The White Hole, home to a kaleidoscope of tropical reef fish, is a circular indentation surrounded with a multitude of brain coral, gargantuan star coral, and huge flower coral. The LCT Barge, a sunken World War II troop carrier rests upright in 20 feet of water. This undersea structure serves as habitat to tremendous schools of fish. Take advantage of an incredible opportunity to snap some panoramic shots of the spectacular residents of this historical artifact.
