Just 21 square miles in size, Bermuda is the wreck diving capital of the Atlantic. Some 400 wrecks from five centuries are strewn around Bermuda's expansive reefs. Despite its northerly location, the Gulf Stream bring surprisingly warm and clear water to Bermuda most of the year. This not only improves diving in the Atlantic, but it supports coral life — mostly brain and star varieties — in a location at the edge of known coral-growing habitat. The island's tidy towns and pink-sand beaches make topside time as fun as dive time. Golf is a big topside activity and there are plenty of historical forts and museums. Situated just 650 miles due east of North Carolina, Bermuda is a good choice for dive travelers looking to get away quick for a long weekend or a mini-vacation. The Bermuda dollar is equal to and interchangeable with the U.S. dollar. Nonstop service from the U.S. is available on American, Continental, Delta and U.S. Airways.
