Snorkel Andros Great Barrier Reef

Andros is the largest island in The Bahamas, surrounded by untouched beauty, the Andros Great Barrier Reef. It is one of the most popular locations for scuba diving and snorkeling, as the third largest barrier reef and the thirds largest living organism on the planet.

The barrier reef is 190 miles long (305 km), running parallel to the island, and with a depth ranging from 8 feet up to 6,000 feet in the trench of the Tongue of the Ocean.

It features exotic and rich biodiversity, with over 160 species of fish including species like turtles, stingrays, lobsters, dolphins, sharks, parrotfishes, grunts, snappers, tuna, selfish, marlins, tarpons and many other colorful fishes, as well as coral gardens, wall dives and many blue holes and underwater cave systems to explore, including Church’s Blue Hole, Guardian, The Great Blue Hole and Uncle Charlie’s Blue Hole.

It is also the only place in the world where you can find more than one Nassau Grouper congregation, and famous for its deep water sponges.

One of the top features of this area is that it remains unexplored, untouched and it is located off the beaten path, thanks to the land-ownership laws that kept the island free of big resorts.
