Scattered like dabs of possibility on an adventurer's palette, the Bahamas are ready-made for exploration. Just ask Christopher Columbus, he bumped against these limestone landscapes in 1492 and changed the course of history. But adventure didn't end with the Niña, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. From pirates to blockade dodgers to rum smugglers: wily go-getters have converged and caroused on the country's 700 islands and 2400 cays for centuries.

Our Guide to Bahamas Diving Holidays

Think of the Bahamas and normally visions of high-rise American style hotels near Nassau come to mind. Speak to most tour operators and they will recommend the big and the brash; look a little deeper however and you can uncover some true gems. To prove it, we sent our company founder there, and he came back having found what he claims to be the best all-round resort in the Caribbean (this from a man who has been scuba diving there for years).

The quality of the scuba diving varies greatly throughout the islands but pick your spot well and you are in for a treat. And that's why you need to talk to us!
