Why do scuba divers love the Bahamas? Home to sharks of nearly every stripe, colorful reefs, intact wrecks and a keen devotion to laid-back living, it’s no wonder the Bahamas is a go-to vacation spot for North Americans. Do these 3,000 islands and cays that lie scattered at the convergence of the Atlantic and Caribbean have it all? As divers and general lovers of the tropical good life, we say these islands come pretty darn close to scoring a perfect 10. From the electrifying shark-feeding dives of Nassau and Grand Bahama to the lost-in-time allure of the Out Islands, here are 20 reasons to love the Bahamas.
Stuart Cove’s shark-feeding experience is the most famous dive in the Bahamas and with good reason. It’s controlled chaos — a frenzy of action that’s nearly impossible to keep up with. In this video, experience this iconic dive alongside Sport Diver editor David Espinosa.
It's quite a shipwreck tale: There were no storm warnings when one of the 18th-century ships in the fleet of the Dutch East India company left Agra, India — home of the Taj Mahal — and headed for the Orient. The captain and crew had survived monsoons, but they were no match for a typhoon that swept them on to the rocks of the Indian Ocean’s Great Basses Reef off the southern coast of Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Few records were recovered relating to the loss of life or the thousands of silver rupees that were part of the merchant ship’s cargo.
