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 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.
