Whilst Hurricane Dorian caused horrific damage to the northern Bahamian islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama, amazingly, the rest of the islands escaped the worst of the storm and are open for business.
Over the years, we have visited the islands on many occasions and have written about the shark diving here on Scubaverse, in Dive Travel Adventures and in our books. The diving is incredible, and there is no place like it if you want to dive with sharks. Ensuring tourist dollars continue to roll in will help the islands rebuild for the future.
Book to dive with Oceanic Whitetip Sharks in Cat Island. Visit the blue holes of Andros. Photograph the swimming pigs of the Exumas. Get up close with Great Hammerhead Sharks and swim with wild dolphins in Bimini. Enjoy the incredible diving in Nassau – you can read about our shark diving experiences in the latest issue of Dive Travel Adventures by clicking here.
The islands of The Bahamas, surrounded by beautiful, warm, clear, blue water, rely on tourism to support the islands economy. They need scuba divers to continue to come and enjoy the diving the islands have to offer. So book your next diving trip to The Bahamas.
Of course, Abaco and Grand Bahama need aid right now and if you want to send money to help, please visit the official website to see where you can give: bahamas.com/relief
