Amazing!

The water is clear and there's lots to see without having to dive deep. In fact, you can see almost as much snorkeling. It's truly an amazing experience.

The reef was easy to get to, and pretty. Many different places to go. There was not an abundance of fish life, but there was enough.

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...
