Andros Barrier Reef

Fodor's Review

Divers can't get enough of the sprawling Andros Barrier Reef, the world's third largest barrier reef, located just off Fresh Creek–Andros Town. Boats from local lodges and resorts bring guests to various sections of the reef to relish in complete underwater rapture. Snorkelers can explore such reefs as the Trumpet Reef, where visibility is clear 15 feet to the sandy floor and jungles of elkhorn coral snake up to the surface. Divers can delve into the 60-foot-deep coral

caves of the Black Forest, beyond which the wall slopes down to depths of 6,000 feet. Anglers can charter boats to fish offshore or over the reef, and bonefishers can wade the flats on their own in Fresh Creek. While the marine life is not as rich nor as diverse as one would expect from such a vibrant, healthy reef, the assemblies of coral are simply breath-taking.

Great Scuba Diving and Snorkeling!

The diving on the Andros Barrier Reef is wonderful. We went with Small Hope Bay Lodge which has been around since 1960 exploring this reef system. My favorite dives were Edge/Over the Wall and the Ocean Blue Hole and my favorite snorkel site was Elkhorn Park. All of the dive sites were about 15 minutes from the dock which is right on the resort property. Diving the Andros Barrier Reef is not to be missed!
