Stella Maris Water Sports
The on-site PADI affiliated water sports centre operates daily boat dives to both the calmer Caribbean Sea and the more rugged, unexplored Atlantic coast, where the marine life is larger and the topography more dramatic.
Enjoy crystal clear and subtropical waters in the southern Bahamas year-round. Here it is possible to learn to dive or head over with a group for a week of adrenaline fuelled dives including Dean's Blue Hole and cruising along Conception Island Wall.
Underwater you can expect hawksbill and green turtles, black-tip reef sharks, schools of colourful fish, stingrays and plenty more nestling amongst the soft corals of the Comberbach wreck.
