My first visit and stay at Old Bahama Bay, located on the West End of Grand Bahama island. Flight from Ft Lauderdale was only about 25 MINUTES!!! The hotel had a van pick us up and drive us out to the resort (about an hour ride). Very beautiful resort and grounds, and gorgeous shark-free marina. Looks alot more like a private gated condo community, rather than typical hotel. Beautiful condo-style rooms with big bathrooms, balcony views of the beach and ocean. The FOOD WAS AMAZING!!! Top restaurant-quality dishes, especially for dinner. If you are going diving, then go with Stuart Cove's Tiger Beach!!! Beto, the dive staff, and boat crew are really awesome, friendly, professional, and DEFINITELY know those waters.
The shark diving is INCREDIBLE!! If you are going for Tiger Sharks then you will see them on EVERY DIVE!! They are BIG and they come in CLOSE!! LOTS of Lemon Sharks as well, and on the way to the dive location we even crossed paths with a hug and very beautiful and graceful HUMPBACK WHALE!!! My first time ever seeing one in the wild, and especially in the Bahamas! I was shocked the place wasn't as packed and crowded as Nassau, but I LOVED the seclusion, privacy, and peace and quite. Very awesome experience with Old Bahama Bay, and I would (and will be) DEFINITELY going back!More
