Situated at Kamalame Cay’s marina dock is a fully equipped, PADI-rated Dive Center that is staffed with experienced instructors. The resident dive professionals offer a range of PADI certification courses along with excursions for divers, non-divers and snorkelers. Full Open Water Diver certifications can be arranged with the nearby Small Hope Bay Lodge.
The Dive Center staff knows all the area’s world-renowned dive sites from the fascinating inland blue holes to the many barrier reef expeditions. Snorkeling trips are also offered to nearby islets and coves. Amazingly diverse marine life, balmy Caribbean water and 100-foot visibility ensures guests an exceptional underwater adventure.
The world’s third largest yet least explored barrier reef lies adjacent to the shores of Indigo Palm and Kamalame Cay where coral gardens, shipwrecks, walls, caverns and blue holes make for exhilarating experiences. Ranging from near vertical wall dives with dramatic ledges and caves to shallow back-reefs that abound with reef fish and invertebrates. Sharks, sea turtles, rays, whales – some of the world’s most diverse sea creatures can be seen here.
Preserved by The Andros Conservancy and Trust, this unspoiled coral reef is a marine replenishment zone as well as a focus of the island’s Forfar Field Station, an international research facility for studies in tropical ecology and marine biology.
