On this Dive Travel adventures we travel to Grand Bahama Island, one of over 700 of the Bahamas Islands in the Atlantic Ocean extending over 500 miles, for a total of 100,000 square miles. Grand Bahama is called the second city, as it is the second largest city in the Bahamas, and the second largest island in the chain.
We take you under the ocean for a shark feed with reef sharks. The handlers have on full steel mesh suits as they dish out the food to the hungry awaiting sharks, while the sharks zoom over our heads.
Later, we join the Dolphin Training Center, one of three dolphin training centers in the world that take dolphins out into the open ocean to swim with snorkelers and divers. The dolphins could easily escape, but you will find out why they don’t.
Our host gets the kiss of his life right on the lips by a large 500 lb female dolphin. Watch as the dolphins do tricks with divers and snorkelers both on the surface and under the ocean. These trained dolphins star in many of Hollywood movies…we will show you one in particular who is a real showoff as she poses for the photographers!
We give you a topside view of the island, caves, downtown, cruise ships, hotels, lighthouse, and the white sandy pristine beaches that extend for miles.
We also attend a dive symposium and interview some of the key speakers and lecturers about diving these incredible warm islands.
You will see the reefs and the marine life that make this such a special place. So sit back and enjoy this special dive adventure as we explore Grand Bahama Island. .©2008, Color. Blu-ray.
