And don't miss out on the shark feed dive usually offered during your scuba diving liveaboard adventure vacation. You will experience truly virgin diving in the Exumas. For over 30 years, much of the northern Exumas has been a National Underwater Park with no fishing, spear fishing or collecting allowed. Because of these laws there are miles and miles of undersea gardens. The reefs are perfect for snorkelling with gin clear waters and lots of fish. You will have a great time exploring the 200 mostly uninhabited islands with their many beautiful beaches in the northern Exumas.
