Scuba diving as the center of a vacation is always a winner, whether it’s a special getaway for you and your special someone, or you’re making a family memory. There are dive vacation packages available from just about every diving business in the Bahamas. Deciding which ones to take advantage of is the question.
Scuba Diving Packages
One of the Grand Bahama Island’s greatest organizers of diving vacation packages is Underwater Explorer’s Society (UNEXSO). Whether you’re an experienced scuba diver, or just now looking to start diving, UNEXSO offers dive vacation packages that offer a variety of activities that are sure to please
Here’s a list and brief description of the diving vacation packages available through one of the premier diving vacation experts found in the Islands:
UNEXSO lists Theo’s Wreck as the “can’t miss it” wreck dive in the Islands. This 238-foot freighter rests in 100 feet of water. Sunk in 1982 by UNEXSO, the wreck has become beautifully adorned with multicolored corals and amazing sponges, and it boasts Moray Eels, a variety of rays, and an abundance of Butterfly fish as its residents.
There is also the Sea Star wreck, a more recent site that UNEXSO helped sink in 2002.
If you or your family members are new to scuba diving, a shallow reef dive package is the perfect vacation experience. Sporting a depth of about 20 feet, shallow dives are the best choice for beginning divers. Shallow water reefs offer amazing color, marine life viewing, and incredible coral formations.
If a medium depth reef of 40 to 60 feet of water is more to your liking, UNEXSO offers packages that let you explore these scattered coral reefs.
If you are an experienced scuba diver, the deep reef vacation packages at UNEXSO may be what you’re looking for. These dives take you to reefs in 65 to 80 feet of water. Here you’ll find high-profile corals, including tongue-and-groove formations. Diving on these reefs will give you a greater chance of seeing sharks, turtles, and other pelagic species that may join you for an unforgettable experience.
This incredible dive experience was pioneered by UNEXSO almost 30 years ago. With experts on shark behavior and conservation on hand for guidance, UNEXSO will set up a dive package to suit your specific desires. During the dive with the sharks at Shark Junction, you’ll see these magnificent animals being hand fed by UNEXSO’s experienced staff, and you’ll have the opportunity to interact with sharks of all sizes.
For a unique dive that you’ll never forget, go for a diving package that takes you to the open ocean, where you’ll dive with the dolphins along a coral reef. Interacting with these amazing mammals of the sea in their natural environment is an experience like none other in the world. UNEXSO puts together signature dolphin dives in the Bahamas.
