Diving in the Abacos is a little different than many other locations in the Bahamas because the reefs here are exposed to the Atlantic Ocean. Most sites are 60 feet or less and exposed to cooler waters forming hard reef systems to protect themselves from harsh conditions. There are many tunnels and caverns to be explored in this area, sloping walls, and even the chance to see sharks.
There are 3 dive services, a dive shop, and at least 10 different dive sites in the area.
