Spend a week diving some of the Bahamas' most spectacular dive sites at San Salvador, one of the Bahamas Out Islands.

San Salvador is unique among the Bahamian Islands. While the Bahamas is predominantly flat, San Salvador is the tip of the vast underwater mountain reaching abyssal depths, creating an underwater topography of spectacular reefs and plunging wall dives. The visibility and marine life are outstanding, while the area is known for regular encounters with hammerhead sharks.
