Activities on Andros

We offer complimentary concierge services and are happy to arrange any of your holiday activities.

Andros has an abundance and variety of world class diving and fishing. Although it is only 150 nautical miles from Florida, Andros is a world away. Andros is a sparsely populated island within the Bahamian Archipelago with only about ~3.5 people per square mile. This provides you the opportunity to explore deep into inland creeks and coppices, explore miles of deserted beaches and take nature walks through the mangrove shoreline, rarely encountering anyone. See both rare birds and birds unique to Andros, or stalk huge resident bonefish up creeks or on the flats often without a soul in sight to spoil your sport. Spectacular diving is right on your doorstep with, The Tongue of the Ocean being only minutes away by boat giving access to walls, caves and beautiful Blue Holes. Andros really is a breathtaking paradise.
