Andros Barrier Reef
Let’s start off with visiting the barrier reef. The Bahamas boasts the third largest barrier reef in the world, stretching more than 300 kilometers in length. This third largest living organism on the planet is home to a enormous variety of marine life, with over 164 fish species and coral, making it one of the most stunning locations in the country for divers and snorkelers. The reef is famous for its deep-water sponges and large schools of red snapper, but you will also find other sea creatures, such as marlins, sailfish, stingrays, reef sharks, lobsters, turtles, moray eels, octopi and game fish. Get your underwater cameras ready and see who can spot the most colorful fish while snorkeling in the crystal clear water. Did you know that the national fish of the Bahamas is the Blue Marlin? Blue Marlins are the largest marlin and can reach up to 5 meters in length, and 907 kilos in weight. They’re capable of reaching speeds of up to 96 kilometers per hour. Talk to your captain about trying to spot one!
Dean’s Blue Hole
With your favorite cocktail in hand, the view of the color contrast of this underwater cavern from the comfort of your own yacht is just unforgettable. What a way to make your way over to the world’s deepest salt water blue hole! Your captain will drop the anchor near the coast of Long Island, so you and your friends and family can explore the blue hole that is considered one of the most beautiful ones in the world. Typically, blue holes look like ponds, but Dean’s blue hole is a different one in many ways. It is connected to the Atlantic through an inlet on one side and framed by cliffs and white sand beaches on the other. The water is very clear as its visibility reaches up to 30 meters. The blue hole’s deepest point is 202 meters but if you pass the hole and swim around, the depth of the water will be only waist-deep. Because of its enclosed nature, the breeze does not reach it and there are no big waves either, making it an ideal place even for beginner swimmers. Bring the entire family and be stunned by how the color of the water changes even while you are swimming in it!
Bimini Road is an underwater rock formation located just off the coast of the Bahamian island of North Bimini. When this road, made up of limestone blocks with most of them cut in a rectangular shape was first discovered, it was thought to be from the lost city of Atlantis, which, according to Greek legends, sunk without a trace 11,000 years ago. The lost city of Atlantis is known as one of the oldest and greatest mysteries of the world. According to Plato, the utopian island kingdom existed some 9,000 years before his time and mysteriously disappeared one day. Famed for having been the exhibit of all worldly pleasures in the world, this city is as enigmatic as it is inviting. Legend says that the city was built by Poseidon, the God of Sea, of storms and earthquakes, when he fell in love with a mortal woman Cleito. He made this city on top of a hill, on an isolated island in the sea, to protect her and named it Atlantis.
The road rests on the sea floor and runs straight for almost a kilometer before ending in a curving, graceful hook. Alongside the Bimini Road are two other smaller linear rock formations, that are similar in design. Most of the rocks appear to have been originally cut with right angles, though time underwater has weathered them into a rounded shape. The larger blocks are positioned in a way that they line up with each other, and are arranged in size order. Some of them even seem to be stacked, as if propped up intentionally.
After further scientific inspection, it was found that these black rocks were not man-made after all, no matter how much we all wish the tale were true. But the site is very much worth your visit to let your imagination run wild as well as to marvel at the incredible sea life, from lobsters to lionfish, that teems here.
Located off the west coast of New Providence in Nassau, this almost six meters tall underwater sculpture was commissioned by the Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation. The weight of the sculpture meant that the piece had to be created in sections and assembled underwater. The female Ocean Atlas sculpture is the contemporary take of artist Jason deCaires Taylor on the ancient Greek myth of Atlas, a Titan condemned to carry the heavens on his back for eternity. Ocean Atlas depicts a young Bahamian girl, kneeling on the ocean floor, while sustaining the ceiling of the ocean. While raising the awareness of natural coral reefs, the statue also serves as a magnet for marine life and has boosted local coral diversity. Built with sustainable, pH-neutral materials designed to kickstart local coral growth by doubling as an artificial reef, Ocean Atlas is an environmental gesture intended to portray the positive potential of human interaction with the natural world. Never crowded, this is one of the best destinations in the Caribbean for snorkelers and scuba divers exploring the region by yacht. In fact, the only thing likely to ruin your shot of the sculpture and each other is a passing sea turtle! Put that on the bucket list: have our picture taken with a sea turtle!
