Diving with Viva Bahamas 

Dive with the Big Boys and experience diving like never before! We will take you to dive with our Shark Expert to see Tiger Sharks, Caribbean Reef Sharks, Atlantic Lemon Sharks, Atlantic Nurse Sharks. Our boat departs directly from our beach in Viva Wyndham Fortuna Beach Resort. Reef Oasis Dive Club offers top-notch Quality Scuba Diving and teaches all the wide range of the available PADI Courses in the crystal waters of the Grand Bahamas. All divers start with a regular afternoon dive from the boat; they will get an orientation briefing on the 1st day, make a weights check, get familiar with procedures etc. This afternoon dive is mandatory before joining dives with sharks or/and morning boat trips. If the last dive was one year ago or more, the divers start with a refresher (refresh package).


Dive Sites

  • CAVES 1 and 2 - Two very interesting sites, well worth the visit. The site is comprised of thick spur and groove coral formations, teeming with life. So many cracks, nooks, crannies and hiding places for fish that it is almost impossible to see everything! Both Moorings are set along a sloping drop-off. Starting at 60’ sloping to about 80-90’ at the bottom. In the deepest part of this site, it is possible to see a sunken chamber. Groupers, Jacks, Remoras and sharks, from neighboring Shark alley, are frequent sightings. At both sides of this site, there are various swim-throughs to explore.
  • GALE'S GROTTO - Sharks and spotted rays are frequently seen here. There is a coral cavern that passes through the reef for about 100 feet. The cavern is inhabited by soldier and squirrelfish.
  • SEA STAR WRECK - (Formerly Emmanuelle) was sunk in April 2002. The ship is approximately 180 foot long and sits upright, in 2 sections in around 90 feet of water. As a freighter, she has a cavernous cargo hold which is open to exploration, where the diver can see evidence of how the ship was made ready for sinking, with cement ballast and holes in the side of the hull still visible. The wreck is now home to many varied species of fish and plant life, including some of the biggest arrow crabs in the area. Other interesting aspects of the dive include a small crane on the deck full of schooling snapper, and the chance for more experienced divers to explore the galley, crew quarters and wheelhouse
  • PLATE REEF - Many varieties of hard coral have formed here. Many plate coral overlap above the surge channels. The blue hole here is quite large and comes right out of the side of a high profile coral. Mahogany and yellowtail snappers, goatfish, and French grunts are usually seen. A staff favorite
  • THEO'S WRECK - Theo's Wreck dive site is located about 1.5 miles from the coast. The wreck is about 230 feet long and rests on the ocean floor on its port side, between the deep reef and the drop-off at a depth of about 101 feet. The bow points landward and the stern seaward, she rests on a flat, sandy floor, among a few isolated coral banks. Two permanent buoys, one at the bow and one at the stern, mark the ship's position. The waters around the wreck are subject to currents that vary according to the tides; use the buoys for safe resurfacing. Since she was sunk in 1982, the ship has become home to numerous fish and is now covered with rich vegetation. The bow anchor chain, in particular, has splendid gorgonian sea fans. The shaded part of the hull is completely smothered in orange false gorgonians.
  • PAPA DOC WRECK - A group of mercenaries headed to fight in the Haitian revolution to overthrow Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier made it no further than this spot. Their 70-foot boat sunk in a storm in 1968. As recently as ten years ago, ammunition clips could still be found among the scattered coral heads. Two engine blocks and assorted sections of the old shrimper are still visible.
  • ANGELS' CAMP - At the mooring pin you find sections of coral running from east to west. Running parallel to this is a large sand channel – an extension of shark alley. Queen, Grey and French Angelfish are often encountered in the area. Great place to find lobsters, stingrays, spotted drums and even the odd Gray Caribbean reef shark. A nice relaxing second dive.
  • BENS BLUE HOLE - This classic site could be considered our ‘house reef’ as its right in front of the resort. Mooring is set at about 40-45ft in a coral head, directly south of the pin you 
  • can see a large sunken horseshoe shape in the sand, this is bens blue hole. The Blue hole is a funnel, or channel for freshwater to come out into the sea, the water mixing creates an interesting place for fish to hang out. 
  • Often you will find a large green moray eel or grouper hanging out under the ledge of the blue hole. We also see loggerhead turtles here regularly. This site is very good for photographers on a sunny day who like to coral head hop.
  • PYGMY CAVES - The high profile corals here form small caves. One would have to be the size of a pygmy to swim through them! Quite often Lobsters or spotted morays are hiding in these small crevices. Here you will also see lapping plates of hard coral. Frequently you will see schools of spadefish near the surface.
  • ANN’S PARADISE - Anne was a local school teacher and diving enthusiast. This site was Anne’s favorite. A very pretty site with plenty coral growth - rows of thick coral heads. Always plenty of flamingo tongues and lettuce leaf slugs on this reef. Hogfish and yellowtail snapper are frequently seen.
  • ROSE GARDEN - This site features long lines of solid coral separated by surge channels. On the top of one particular coral head, right at the bottom of the mooring line, is a blue hole that shoots straight up. Schools of white grunts, Bermuda chub and black triggerfish inhabit the area around the hole
  • HYDRO LAB - The eastern side of shark alley. Connects with angels camp and Pretenders wreck. Comprised of scattered coral heads and sandy bottom, and lots of sharks! Called hydro Lab for the sunken Hyperbaric chamber holding down the mooring line.
  • PRETENDERS WRECK - The Western side of shark alley. Connects with hydro Lab to the East and Caves Sites to the south. A very interesting dive with many options for a tour. Named ‘pretenders wreck’ for the 45’ upside down tugboat hull holding down the mooring line. Plenty of Grey Caribbean Reef Sharks circling the area, along with Hugh Groupers, Schooling Jacks and Spadefish, often a stingray or two. And you never know what else!
  • PICASSO GALLERY - Shape of this reef forms a rough ‘painters palette’. It is said the coral heads at this site are like masterpieces in an art gallery, you move from one piece to the next seeing what each one has to offer. Colors are fantastic – considered a photographers delight. Lots of small life, Arrow crabs, slugs, juveniles. You will often find a stingray or a stray reef shark.
  • REEF CARIBE - This site features three lines of isolated coral heads running parallel to each other. Look carefully for Christmas tree worms and feather dusters. The tops of the heads are covered with assorted gorgonian and sea fans. Hogfish seem to frequent the area as well as stingrays with their ever-present jack escorts
  • LADY OF LUCAYA - Next to the mooring is a large swim through which is sometimes filled with silversides, especially during the summer months. Just east of the mooring on the other side of the opening is a winged statue that guards the entrance of the swim-through.
  • OCTOPUSSY GARDEN - Here can be found a sunken tugboat around 55 ft. in length, lying in the rocky and sandy seabed, surrounded by coral heads. Very often you can see here big groupers reef sharks, snappers, stingrays.
