Small Hope Bay Lodge offers a large variety of Dive and Snorkel excursions to more than 60 sites. These include colorful shallow reefs, shark dives, coral gardens, wreck dives, breathtaking blue holes, the Andros Barrier Reef and stunning wall dives at the edge of the continental shelf, where the Tongue of the Ocean plunges to 6,000 feet.

The Great Barrier Reef of Andros is the 3rd largest fringing barrier reef in the world. Only a few places in the world can offer such an astounding variety of diving as here on Andros. And the beauty of our location is that all the dive and snorkel sites are so close - most sites are only about 15 minutes away by boat from the dock at Small Hope Bay Lodge.

Excursions can be tailored to the skill and experience levels of the participants. Snorkelers and Divers are accommodated on the comfortable pontoon boats designed for easy exit and entrance on the water. If you don't have your own gear, we supply quality, well-maintained rental equipment.

Sample Itinerary of Experience

Ocean and inland Blue Holes are a unique feature on Andros. There is a higher concentration of these limestone formations than anywhere on the planet. Wall dives, Cavern dives with gorgeous swim troughs, shallow Reef dives, shark experience dives and night dives make up the daily rotation of dives that will please the most seasoned divers.

In addition to "specialty dives" for advanced and experienced divers, cave penetrations can be organized by experienced instructors with cave certification.
