The Bahamas’ piercing blue waters have long been a hot-ticket for divers, but the new way to explore underwater is by submersible. Steered by Cookson pilots, these state-of-the-art vessels give freedom to any adventurer to search the waters for schooling tiger sharks or sunken ships carpeted in crustaceans.
Our leading shark experts will show you to an array of species unbothered by your presence. From the filter-feeding whale shark – the largest fish in the ocean – to juvenile lemon sharks resting on the coral banks, the king of the food chain is often a daily sighting.
If there’s anything that separates these islands from anywhere else on earth, it’s their diversity of caves systems. Plummeting reef walls blanketed in coral, blue sinkholes and dramatic drop-offs are among the deepest in the world.
Reach the lesser known corners aboard a superyacht and you can find your favourite amongst the archipelago’s 700 islands. Above the waves, the flavour of the Bahamas will draw you back. Rum-fuelled parties on private beaches to the smell of freshly-caught seafood at busy market stands, whatever the moment calls.
With plunging reef walls and dramatic drop-offs in abundance divers are spoiled for choice. The Andros Wall, in particular, is considered one of the best dive sites in the world, with a starting depth of two to three metres dropping sharply to 500 metres.
Numerous beaches, bays, islets and mangroves make the Bahamas an incredible setting for water sports.
Overexploitation and habitat loss have caused local turtles to become an endangered species in the Bahamas. Tag the remaining hawksbill and green sea turtle residents with scientists aboard a research vessel and help identify their movements to protect and conserve their habitat.
Float alongside the king of the food chain as you pilot your submersible in the Bahamas’ waters. Tigers, bulls, lemons and hammerheads will become a daily sighting and will make for unforgettable dives.
The diversity of the Bahamas cave systems make them unique. Explore blue sinkholes and deep-cut fractures in the earth, all teeming with wildlife. Search inland for caves including the Thunderball Grotto where the James Bond movie was filmed.
Alongside expert fishermen on Crooked Island discover one of the best locations in the world for bonefish and learn how to catch these notoriously hard-to-catch fish.
