Resort’s Recreation Area Now Reaches Under Water

October 23rd, 2013

Deep Water Cay has begun to offer scuba, snorkeling and dive excursions to a vibrant world that has few signs of human visitation.

 

DEEP WATER CAY, Bahamas — Though best known for abundant bonefishing, Deep Water Cay — a small, private island off the east end of Grand Bahama — now is becoming a dive.

The resort, which opened in 1958, recently began offering scuba diving instruction, snorkeling and dive excursions aboard a 33-foot power catamaran and a 22-foot rigid inflatable.

“A lot of marine life, tons of brain corals, lots of friendly fish,” dive instructor Phillip Russell said.

Russell, a native of Grand Key in the Abaco Islands who has been an instructor since 1997, took over the resort’s dive shop this year. He’s currently in the R & D phase — exploring the many coral reefs and blue holes (marine caves) located within a short boat ride of the island in search of the best dive sites. It’s an enjoyable job with an abundance of riches: with the closest dive operation more than 80 miles away in Freeport, the area shows few signs of human visitation.
