Chub Cay, one of the southernmost in the Berry islands lying some 70 miles northeast of Andros, is a relatively unknown area of the Bahamas, and now boasts a new PADI five-star dive resort and activity centre.
Chub Cay Divers is a one-stop-shop offering every facility for divers to discover these little-dived waters.
With site depths ranging from 10m-40m for recreational diving, multiple technical dives and the Chub Cay wall dropping below 300m, the diving is suitable for all levels of experience.
Chub Cay is located off the shelf of the Berry Islands, an area also referred to as the Tongue of the Ocean. This U-shaped deep-water trench is 32km wide, 240km long and reaches some 2,000m in depth; with reefs along all its edges. This attracts a large variety of marine life including sharks, turtles, eagle rays, crustaceans, and tropical fish. This local reef has so much to offer divers, from roaming beautiful coral gardens to drifting along stunning walls.
One of the highlights of the Chub Cay dives is the great likelihood of encountering sharks in their natural environment. No chumming or feeding minimises any disruption to the sharks’ native behaviour.
