[dropcap]A[/dropcap]s spring breaks and Easter holidays approach, we welcome warmer ocean water temperatures (75-79 °F) that gives divers and snorkelers a choice of full 3 mil or shorty wetsuits. Air temperatures should range between 76 to 90 °F.

North Eleuthera is a great area for a chance encounter with bottlenose dolphins, especially between Spanish Wells and Harbour Island. When sighted on a dive/snorkel trip the dolphin like to ride the bow wake or jump through the ship’s larger waves at the stern. They may stick around when you enter the water to view them up close. They can be playful and curious and a thrill to view.

Big animals are something you can get closer to by booking with one of the local operators and venturing out on a day trip to see turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, sharks, grouper, lobster, and lots of other interesting creatures. To have a higher chance of diving with these creatures consider going to the famous Current Cut dive site off Current Island to get super close all the while drifting at a high speed, sometimes up to 12 knots. It’s a wild ride when you hit it right!

North Eleuthera is an area that provides much diversity of underwater life, so let’s go diving!
