But there is more to it when a diver goes to the Bahamas, an island country with around 700 islands in the Lucayan Archipelago within the Atlantic Ocean. Here are a few of the interesting spots that shouldn’t be missed.

  • Hammerhead Dive in the Bimini Islands – From the months of October to around mid-March, there is one particular sighting that sets other diving experiences apart. This is because of the convergence of hammerhead sharks below the sandy channel of the South and North Bimini.

  • Angelfish Blue Holes – There is only one location in the world for tidal blue holes, having unique geological features.
