[dropcap]H[/dropcap]ey!  It’s time to start shedding those full wetsuits and don your shorty; or just a t-shirt!  May brings in the warmer temps that make diving Grand Bahama tops on any scuba divers list.  With wrecks and reefs galore and those amazing Caribbean reef sharks to keep divers coming back for many years.  The marine life and the topography of the reefs make each dive more unique than the first one!

Calling home in the waters off Grand Bahama Shores is one of the largest wrecks in The Bahamas; better known as Theo’s Wreck.  This 230 foot wreck was sunk by Theo Galanopoulos in 1982 and it quickly became one of our premier dive sites. Sitting on its port side in 100 feet of water; you can literally sit on the rudder and look over the wall into the abyss!

If you are not in to wrecks, you may enjoy our spectacular reefs; teeming with marine life beyond belief!  May brings us closer to the summer months which bring the wild dolphins back from their wintering grounds further south. I once had to stop one of our guest on the boat from jumping into the water with a pod of dolphins passing our boat! But, not only was she about to jump off a moving boat, she was holding hands with my 10 year old daughter, all geared up as well with mask, fins and snorkel!

Diving Grand Bahama is an adventure within itself and the wrecks, reefs and marine life are just so spectacular that divers spend more than 10 to 20 years returning and always say, “Man, I can’t believe that I am still seeing something different and more awesome than the last trip!”

So, if you want good diving, there are many places to choose.  But, if you want mouth dropping, can’t believe I’m seeing this much wild life, then Grand Bahama diving is for you!  And May is the perfect month to visit!  Not cold, but not too hot!
