Bahamas Underground

Bahamas Technical and Cave Diving Adventure and Training Facility

Guided Diving in the Amazing
Crystal Caves of Abaco Island

Dive the most beautiful underwater caves in the world with explorer Brian Kakuk.  Brian provides exclusive one and two diver experiences in the most unbelievably decorated underwater caves on earth. 

"Prepare to be amazed!"

The Crystal Caves of Abaco are unlike any other caves on earth.  Imagine yourself gliding past massive crystal columns 30 feet (10M) tall and rooms so full of crystal formations that it can only be described as swimming through a crystal chandelier.  Due to the fragile nature of these sites, the local dive operators have agreed that all cave diving on Abaco is guide only, and I only 1 to 2 divers (plus the guide) are allowed in the caves at one time.

 
The Bahamas Underground does not guide large groups and our facility is set up for more of an exclusive 1 and 2 diver experience with a guide.  There are currently no other guides for the caves here, but there are several open water dive shops that support reef diving as an alternative (please see our LINKS page).

Andros Island Exclusive Expeditions
(Winter months only)

In the relatively cooler months of winter here in the Bahamas, Brian runs several exclusive 5 to 7 day trips to the deep blue holes of southern Andros Island.  This area possesses some of the most beautiful and technically challenging underwater caves in the world.  Many of these sites have been explored by famed explorers George Benjamin (the original explorer of many of the off shore blue holes), Sheck Exley, Tom Mount, Rob Palmer and other legends of cave diving.

 

We meet in Nassau, Bahamas for the 15 minute flight to the Congo Town Airport (MYAK) near South Bight area of South Andros Island. There we will begin diving the famous south bight fracture system which includes the famous inland caves Stargate Blue Hole, El Dorado Blue Hole, and Rat Bat Lake.

 

The world famous Stargate Blue Hole in the Bluffs area of South Andros.  This cave is massive inland fracture blue hole (see picture left) with beautiful formations, massive passages and depths of more than 330 feet in some areas (this cave can also be dived easily without going below 120 feet though). 

 

We will be staying at the comfortable Coral Beach Inn where owner Troy Kemp and his staff cook us fantastic Bahamian breakfast and dinners, while we take our lunch out in the field with us each day.

 

We take a minivan to the dive site where local land owners will assist us in lower our equipment 15 feet down (and then back up!) to the water of Stargate.

 

Off shore we will be diving   SB (South Bight) 1 through 5, including Benjamin's Blue Hole or Exley's Boiling Hole.  The strong currents in the bight and in the off shore blue holes will require that we time the tides to allow the best visibility and safe conditions. This means doing longer dives every 12 hours on the tides (except for inland dives).

The grand finale will be to dive the newly discovered cavern “The Entrance to Morhd

orh”, a massive 50 to 60 foot wide and nearly 200 foot tall inland fracture with air clear water and an amazing view.  This is a long hike, our local land owner helps us carry the equipment to this remote, but most stunning cavern in the Bahamas.
