Went snorkeling on the barrier reef and it was wonderful. So many beautiful and colorful fish and coral! Our dive master, Dennis from Small Hope Bay Lodge was great!

Andros Reef has lots of depth options for all divers. Recommended. Water is clear, visibility is good, temperature is warm! What's not to love?

Very clear water, but this means not a lot of nutrients, so fish population not as plentiful as other reefs. Nice healthy corals and sponges.

We did not go diving, but did take a boat up to the reef. It is very large and definitely protects the island. You can see the waves breaking at the reef. There are very few places where you can get in with a boat, so you really need to know the landscape or have a local with you that... More

Lots of coral, most of it still in good shape. Some really nice giant coral on the wall. I loved all of the swim throughs and the blue hole. Plenty of life although I think the small fish are being depleted here by lionfish much like other places...BAD FISH! Lots of sharks. Although I did not see the elusive hammerhead,... More

We did our SCUBA certification in the 3rd rated most beautiful reefs. The water was so clear, a diverse variety of fish, and very healthy coral reefs. We dove in five different locations over two days. It was the most amazing life experience. We are hooked and look forward to returning for more dives. Jesse (NAUI certified) with Andros Beach...

So many amazing creatures and the coral is gorgeous! A large variety of sites from shallow to diving the wall at the tongue of the ocean. Sometimes you can hear whales singing!

Androes island has so much to offer more than I've seen from any other place thus far from the reef to the walls to the cave diving shipwrecks shark dive night dives and inland blue holes I don't know where else you could go and achieve so much diversity. One of my favorite shallow dives is what they call central... More

I went on six dives with Small Hope Bay Lodge and their dive crew are outstanding. My favourite two dives were Turnbully Gut and Marion Reef - an old naval barge. Diving here is easy - no currents to fight, some gentle drift on a couple of dives, lovely clear waters.
