[dropcap]W[/dropcap]ell, the warmer ocean waters are coming due soon so water temperatures in the 77 -80 degree range mean only a skin or shorty wetsuit is required for scuba diving and a rash guard for snorkeling. As we swing through springtime, we will be able to dive further out into the open ocean due to flatter seas. Dive sites such as Grouper Hole, Grotto, and Hammerhead Point will become more accessible to the experienced diver. We have seen tiger sharks, great hammerhead sharks, spotted eagle rays and horse-eyed jacks recently, as well as schools of fish so thick that on occasion they will block out the surface or sun. The west end of North Eleuthera will continue to provide exciting shipwreck exploration, drift diving to hang with bigger animals, and reefs in pristine condition. For newer divers, some of our closer sites offer shallow reefs and shipwrecks; for adventure divers there are deeper dives involving swim throughs and archways nearby. Patch reefs can make for interesting fish identification dives for student divers.

North Eleuthera, along with Harbour Island and Spanish Wells, offer great restaurants, pink sand beaches, lots of activities and fun in the sun.
