The reefs just off Green Turtle Cay have gained an international reputation for their pristine beauty and abundance of sea life and have been the subject of featured television shows on The Travel Channel and CNN.
The reefs, exposed to the tidal currents of the Atlantic Ocean, are just on the edge of survival as hard corals. The base of the corals is extinct, but the top has a healthy growth of Star and Elkhorn corals. Mazes of tunnels and caverns are etched out of the base reef by tidal currents. Temperatures in the winter are slightly cooler. Most dive sites are relatively shallow, less than 60 feet.
Brendal’s Dive Center, a member of the PADI Resort Association, is located directly adjacent to the Green Turtle Club Resort & Marina complex and offers all levels of certification and specialty courses, as well as rentals. Brendal’s Dive Center is internationally accredited and received in 2006 the prestigious Bahamas Tourism Cacique Award. For more dive information, visit www.brendal.com.
