Since the passing of Hurricane Irene, the weather conditions have remained very stable. Dive enthusiasts have been enjoying great diving since the day the storm left the island. The reefs are in great condition and were not damaged by the storm. Rays, turtles and occasional hammerhead sharks seem to pass our divers on a daily basis and the marine life is beautiful and abundant. Visibility is great and the water is still very warm from the wonderful summer.

October is a relatively quiet month on Grand Bahama. It is ideal for leisure dives and using your bottom time to improve your overall skills. Many dive operators offer a number of specialty courses that you may want to consider. Some of them are more intense, such as Cavern, Deep or Wreck courses. Others are more relaxing and full of fun, such as Photography, Peak Performance Buoyancy and Marine ID Specialties. These courses will enhance your overall underwater experience and enjoyment and will assist you in taking the next step to Master Diver.

When visiting or vacationing on Grand Bahama, check with your local Grand Bahama dive operator to ask what courses may be available to make your time more interesting and rewarding.
