NASSAU DIVING HOLIDAYS

 

Diving Holidays In Nassau

Nassau is the capital city of The Bahamas and is located on the 11th largest island of the archipelago - New Providence. Nassau’s main harbour, Paradise Island, is famous for its rich history of pirates and commerce. The island has the lure of a big city but the feel of exotic paradise and offers everything from beautiful natural beaches to bustling entertainment and modern amenities.

Nassau in The Bahamas offers a number of great dive sites that appear to a range of abilities and each site offers a totally unique experience. A variety of shallow reefs provide a home for an abundance of colourful fish and are ideal for macro-photography fans as well first time divers and snorkellers while the Lost Blue Hole is an attraction which attracts many divers to this region of The Bahamas. This natural hole in the ocean floor is where you will find turtles, sharks, large pelagic fish and giant southern stingrays.

Also off the coast is the De La Salle Wreck as well as the Lighthouse Wreck & Reef and The Shipyard. All of these are amazing sites for photographers and divers as you discover the deep water tropical reef, lobsters and eagle rays that have taken refuge on the wrecks.

Diving Seasons In Nassau

Things To Do In Nassau

Without doubt, the main attraction of Nassau & Paradise Island is the 14-acre Atlantis Waterscape, the world's largest open-air aquarium, which teems with over 100 species of colourful fish. Paradise Island is also the drop-off point for the unforgettable Dolphin Encounter and the exhilarating Powerboat Adventures.
 
If you want to step back through the centuries in Nassau you can wander along to the Pompey Museum and take a good, long look at the display of artefacts, documents and drawings. For a more modern glimpse of Nassau & Paradise Island Bahamas art you won't want to miss the contemporary Bahamian art galleries and the cultural Junkanoo museum tour either.

Nightlife In Nassau

Sun, sand and surf may rule the days in The Bahamas, but clubs and live shows rule the nights. Thanks to the Bahamians' fondness for music and dancing, there are no shortage of nightspots, local talent and good company to make a holiday day last long after dark.
 
From unmissable bargains to unforgettable beaches, take a walk along the fabulously colourful ‘Bahamian Riviera', Cable Beach. Only three miles west of the city and easily accessible by bus or taxi, this magnificent stretch of exclusive resorts and homes on two and a half miles of golden sand is also the focus of Nassau & Paradise Island's Bahamas-style vibrant nightlife. Nightclubs, pubs, restaurants, and even a casino, are all just a short stroll away from each other.
