Bahamas My Out Island

Scuba Diving in Eleuthera, The Bahamas

Home of the first republic in the “New World,” there are more natural wrecks here than any other island. The Devil’s Backbone is a shallow and jagged reef extending across the northern edge of Eleuthera. This reef has torn the bottom out of more vessels than any other reef in the nation.
