5 Best Places to Scuba Dive in the Atlantic Ocean


3. Bahamas

The Bahamas are a group of seven hundred islands located to the north of Cuba and just off the coast of Florida. Scuba diving in the Bahamas occurs year round, making these islands one of the most popular scuba diving vacation destinations. In Grand Bahama, for example, you can dive with dolphins, explore Shark Junction (not recommended for everyone) and Devil’s Backbone.

One of the most popular scuba sites in Grand Bahama is Theo’s Wreck, which was purposefully sunk by UNEXSO in 1982. UNEXSO also sunk the Sea Star in 2002 and La Rose in 2006.

Keep in mind that hurricane season is June-November. Scuba divers should be aware that these tropical weather systems can produce poor scuba diving conditions.
