The reef is in great condition. Very few lion fish. We saw sharks,turtles and Juvenal fish as well. Went to three wrecks too. The Blue Hole is something you need to do at least once. With a combination of cold and warm water. Looks a bit spider webs of algae. This is how it was explained " Back Side Of... More

Turquoise water, wonderful locals serving up delicious Bahamian dishes; scrumptious home baked bread; great snorkeling; bone fishing. Nicolls Town has places to rent and an empty beach. Discover Andros on FB, talk to Chris Curry. Paradise awaits and old fashioned relaxation.

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.

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.

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
