ShoreTrips says...

One of the owners of this shop is from Andros, Bahamas, and has been diving all of his life. His partner came for an Introduction to Scuba class and ended up marrying her instructor! You'll love both of them and thank them for providing this awesome experience.

This one-tank dive for certified divers will take you to a cavern that a fellow named Ben Rose discovered at 30 years of age. At the time, your guide was 18 years old and he is the only member of the original group still diving this cavern.

This inland blue hole is a national preserve and open to only four divers at a time. You'll travel to the location 50' deep where you'll enter the water. From here, you'll be guided to the cavern opening and be able to penetrate 150 feet into this site. You'll be swimming around and through huge stalactite formations, fossilized coral, and glow-through crystal columns, but this cavern is so large that you won't feel claustrophobic. Mango snapper, mosquito fish, and blue crabs are among the mix of curious sea life to be found in this truly unique site.

This will be an adventure of a lifetime!

Some dive shops are all business, but here you will meet real people and probably leave with new friends. You'll immediately feel the warmth and the pride of this couple in their business and their island. We had a lovely visit here and almost forgot we were working.
