pleasant year-round diving conditions.
Bermuda’s geographic conditions, together with an abundance of shipwrecks, combine to produce one of the world’s most spectacular shallow water diving locations.
‘The Island’, as we refer to our home, actually consists of a group of islands that form the emergent part of the Bermuda Seamount, a volcanic peak rising from the seabed some 600 miles due east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. The Island is ringed by the world’s northernmost coral barrier reef, and the misfortune of the seafarers who met their demise off Bermuda has provided us with a wide variety of wreck dives to choose from.
As we are located about 300 miles south and east of the Gulf Stream, we have a sub-tropical climate, resulting in pleasant year-round diving conditions.
Water temperatures range from the mid-60s in winter to the high-70s to mid-80s in summer. The air temperature is mid-60s to mid-70s in winter, and mid-70s to mid-80s in summer. Visibility averages 70 to 100 feet. The variable water temperatures have prompted the coral and fish to grow to sizes rarely seen elsewhere. Bermuda is home to a wide variety of wrasse, angel fish, grouper, snapper, sergeant majors (cow pollies to Bermudians) as well as many pelagic fish.
During the spring, our guests may also observe the majestic humpback whales on their annual migration from warm southern waters to the rich feeding grounds off the northeast coast of the United States and Canada’s Maritime provinces.
