Comments Abacos are more renowned for fishing than diving. So although not a primary dive destination, there is a lot more to do while visiting nearby islands via water ferry. Keith, who is owner, shop manager and dive master was most accommodating. Diving is relatively shallow and typical, but not spectacular. Would highly recommend Dive Abaco, as his wife handles all of the reservations via online and the internet. Keith is very conscientious and helpful, serving as our boat captain and dive master (my wife and I were the only two people on the boat). No pressure to buy the pictures he took during our dives, but was nice to have a photo pro doing the shooting. If you want easy and stress free diving (no currents) while visiting the islands for fishing, eating conch and being an island tourist, this place is OK.
