Scuba Diving in Cat Island, The Bahamas

Cat Island features the highest peak in the Bahamas, a whopping 207 feet. More than that, on this island it is fun to get out on the road and explore, talk with locals and enjoy the heart of the Bahamas. One of the finest shallow Bahamian reefs, Dry Heads, is here, along with plenty of other shallow and medium depth reefs, miles of walls and a couple of excellent wrecks.
