DIving season

The diving season in the Bahamas is year-round, and the best time to dive depends on what you're hoping to see. The best time for Bahamas shark diving is November to May, during the dry season, and you can expect sunny and slightly humid weather conditions. Bahamas liveaboards experience rainy season from June to October. Expect short showers that occur once a day, while seeing rays, turtles, and dolphins during your dives.
