We are happily reporting great weather conditions, warm seas and outstanding visibility. Always on the lookout for hurricanes, as this is the critical time of the year, we know that if none show up on the horizon, September brings flat calm sea and quiet boats. Shorty wetsuits are all you at this time of the year. And, when visiting Grand Bahama in September, expect fewer dive partners and your choice of dive locations.

Dive sites high on our list of recommendation are:

• Theo’s Wreck. A cement freighter in 100 feet of water, most impressive and intact, allowing divers to explore the cargo area and the engine room.

• Sea Star is an old time favorite. Sunk in perfect condition, it has become a true wreck after the manipulations of Hurricane Frances, with niches and shelters for schooling fish and resident moray eel.

• La Rose, Etheridge, The Laura and Papa Doc are some of the others on the list. You can always visit the wreck and continue your exploration on the adjacent reefs.

Our local guides will fill you in on the stories and the fun facts associated with each of the sites.
