Owner description: Fishers and divers flock to the third largest reef in the world.
Reviewed 18 July 2016

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 The Blue Hole
This dive is at our regular ocean blue hole dive site, also known as King Kong's Blue Hole, though we start at the opposite side. As we swim into the valley, you will actually see a river of water, underwater! What is happening is the blue hole will be pumping out cold water, about 72 degrees, from underneath the island. The surrounding sea water is 84 degrees. The cold water is dark green compared to the light blue ocean water. This cold water is also denser which causes it to sink and run out one of the old stream beds. We will swim up this stream bed and into the blue hole where you will then see white algae that hangs in suspension like giant cob webs. This mixing zone creates an unforgettable visual experience. You will not see anything else like this on earth!"

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.
