Just off the coast of Marsh Harbour is perhaps one of the most unique dive sites in the world: an underground train wreck.  It actually ran aground while aboard a barge that was transporting it, but it is enough of a site to draw thousands of divers to see it each year.  If you're interested but have not yet learned the art of scuba diving, you can sign up for courses during your stay on the island. 

You'll find two dive services, a dive shop, and a small number of interesting dive sites in the area.
