Explore the depths of Andros’ Tongue of the Ocean, barrier reef and inland Blue Holes

Andros is home to one dive operation: Small Hope Bay. Segmented by an abundance of creeks, Andros includes all the cultural wealth of the remote Out Islands, a thick marine community plus a geological definition of The Bahamas. It is bordered by the third largest barrier reef in the world, more than 130 miles of continuous reef. Blue Holes are an integral part of the development of these islands, and Andros is blessed with possibly the largest number of these natural phenomena. Defining the primary dive sites off Andros is virtually impossible because of the vast territory. Just let it be known that one can partake of everything from shallow snorkeling adventures to walls to wrecks to big animal encounters to truly edge-oriented technical diving. You definitely can make your choices here.
