Recreation and Sports


 
Diving in the Bahamas is the ideal destination for both avid and novice scuba divers and snorkelers. Experienced dive and snorkel charters are abundant on most islands and offer a variety of underwater experiences including shark diving wreck diving, and diving the famous Bahamas Blue Holes.

Sports Fishing in the Bahamas is a recreational paradise. Fishing is the oldest known means of survival in the Bahamas. In today’s Bahamas, not a weekend goes by without a fish festival or fish fry event on most islands. Popular at these events are fresh snapper, and conch salad. The Bahamas conch shell is much coveted as a souvenir, as it is still used as a “conch horn”-signaling signaling device on boats.

Recreational Boating in the Bahamas ranges from million dollar yachts to personal watercraft. The terrain of long flat, coral formations are renown for their turquoise waters providing excellent recreational fishing and boating grounds offering many destinations including secluded beaches, privacy coves, gunk-holing and official ports of call.

Enjoy sailing and regattas in the Bahamas, for example the annual sailing regatta each year in George Town, which began in 1973 as part of the Bahamas Independence Celebrations. Many islands are home to local sailing clubs that promote Bahamas boating events, including the Royal Nassau Sailing Club, Grand Bahama Sailing Club, Staniel Cay Yacht Club in the Exumas Bahamas, Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club, and the Ocean Reef Yacht Club.
