Dream Diving Starts Right Here

A mile off the Andros Great Barrier Reef, surrounded by deserted islets and deep Blue Holes, Kamalame Cay is a world-class destination for divers and snorkelers. The region's abundance of marine life rich sites viewed through the translucent waters of the Bahamas with 100-foot visibility, the island's fully equipped Dive Shop, staffed with PADI-certified professionals, offers a comprehensive range of excursions as well as dive lessons and certification.

Freediving

Freediving, free-diving, free diving, breath-hold diving, or skin diving is a form of underwater diving that relies on breath-holding until resurfacing rather than the use of breathing apparatus such as scuba gear. Enter the blue abyss of the Atlantic Ocean and discover an amazing array of colorful fish, anemones.

While enjoying this activity - explore the reefs, improve your spearfishing skills, and possibly restore physiological effects and meditative qualities.

Although freediving involves less gear than scuba, there are still many safety considerations. It is important to begin your journey with an experienced, qualified freedive instructor to learn proper techniques to keep you and family safe.
