Comments Dove numerous wreck sites, but the marine life was somewhat limited. The shark feeding dive was spectacular with 20 caribbean reef sharks joining the fray. One of the coolest dive experiences I have had. Excellent photo opportunity. Nassau Scuba Center is what I would call a mom and pop, with very freindly, personal service. Best of all small dive group and plenty of room on the boat. The boat was a bit aged and worn, but acceptable. They pick you up at your hotel in their bus. I would dive with them again.

Atlantis is an amazing resort with beautiful grounds and an 11 million gallon aquarium spread throughout. Water slides and plenty of pools, so there is fun for all ages. The food was excellent, but very pricey. I would go back in a heartbeat.
