Andros Bahamas scuba diving - wall diving

"Small Hope Bay Lodge offers what is reputed to be the third biggest barrier reef system in the world, and some of the finest of all Blue Hole diving into immense underwater cave systems. Then there is the famous wall, beginning at 22m and plunging down into the Tongue of the Ocean, a dive I shall never forget."

Fishing on Andros, Bahamas

Bonefishing

Half Day $290.00
Full Day $425.00
jim-bonefishing-at-smallhope-andros-bahamas
Experts rate Andros, with its innumerable sandy flats, cays and channels, as one of the world's great locations for the Albula vulpes, or white fox... Suddenly my guide stops poling and half-whispers, "Three-o'clock. Tailing. Twenty yards." A large school of bonefish, weighing perhaps three to five pounds each, heads in our direction.

- Charles Greenfield, Travel & Leisure Magazine

  • More info for Bonefishing on Andros
  • Up to 2 people.
  • Includes local guide, boat, and packed lunch for full-day trips.
  • Limited gear available upon request (advise in advance if fly or spincaster).
  • Worldclass Bonefishing waters. Whether you want to test yourself by searching out large Bonefish swimming ahead or go for smaller Bonefish in schools, Andros has all the terrain you could ever wish for. Our guides will show you where to get the best fishing in the world.
  • Not only do you get worldclass Bonefishing, but Andros is virtually untouched by the modern world. No crowded shipping lanes, people zipping past in high speed boats or getting caught in your lines. On Andros you will often go the whole day and not see a soul. What better environment to test your skills against that most elusive of fish.

    Except during the summer months of mid June - early September, children must be with two full paying adults to qualify for their discounted rates.

Complimentary babysitting is provided from 6:00 pm to 8:45 pm for 2-7 year olds. Individual sitters for infants are easily arranged at a nominal fee. This allows the adults some adult time during cocktail and dinner hours and allows the kids time to be kids and play in the games room (or outside in the summer time). Babysitting can be arranged at any other time for a nominal fee.
