Bahamas Ministry of Tourism to Host Inaugural Bahamas Dive Week on San Salvador

The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation (BMOTIA) will conduct the first-ever Bahamas diving Week on San Salvador from 6-13 May, building on the city’s reputation as a destination with a wide variety of diving opportunities.
One of several major initiatives planned by the Vertical Markets’ Dive Team, directed by Senior Director Greg Rolle, is the Dive Week, which begins its series on San Salvador. The series also features places like Nassau and Grand Bahama Island.

Eight days will be dedicated to exploring the island’s top dive sites, such as Riding Rock Wall, Great Cut, and Area 51, by open water certified divers, local dive professionals, Bahamas Dive Ambassador Richard Smith, and 18 American divers.

The forthcoming diving week, according to the Hon. John H.W. Pinder II, Parliamentary Secretary (BMOTIA), will be an experience that divers won’t forget.

The Bahamas, he continued, “are known all over the world for our award-winning dive sites and are home to the third largest barrier reef in the world.” “I am thrilled that these divers will be able to see up close why It’s Better in The Bahamas this week on the island of San Salvador,” said Pinder.

He said that the Bahamas’ crystal-clear seas are home to some of the country’s true riches. “Our pristine and beautiful underwater habitats, reefs, and sea life will be an experience divers will never forget,” continued Pinder.

13 Scuba Diving Reader’s Choice Awards for 2023 were given to the Bahamas, including the top prize for Big Animal Encounters. The Bahamas has taken first place in the following categories for the previous 20 years: Cave/Cavern/Grotto Driving; Wreck Diving; Beginner Diving; Wall Diving; Snorkelling; Photography; Best Overall and Best Value.

According to Jermaine Johnson, District Manager, San Salvador Tourism Office, “We have over 52 dive sites and all of our dive sites are protected because they are all located within the West Coast Marine Park so our divers will not just be diving in regular waters but diving within the five national park systems in San Salvador.”

Johnson said that “diving has unquestionably made San Salvador famous and that our island is the best for diving.” Johnson continued, “I am excited, and we are all excited here on the island to have the chance to showcase what we have and advance in the market.”

San Salvador Dive Week is being organised by BMOTIA in collaboration with Caradonna Adventures, Riding Rock Resort & Marina, Guanahani Divers, and Bahamasair.
