Bermuda is one of the world's most desirable dive-adventure destinations, with hundreds of easy-to-explore shipwrecks and beautiful coral reefs surrounding the island.

Since the 16th century, several hundred vessels have met their unfortunate fate on Bermuda's jagged fringing reefs (which extend outward up to eight miles). Diving in Bermuda is like stepping into a time machine and opening a window to a past life on the high seas complete with pirate tales, naval battles and fierce storms. By diving in this underwater museum without walls, you will travel an incredible timeline that carries you from the era of Spanish treasure galleons and 18th century British warships to Civil War blockade runners and the dawn of luxury trans-Atlantic passenger liners. Bermuda's wreck collection spans more than five centuries with vessels originating from 15 different countries.

Since the wrecks lie in relatively shallow water (45-50 feet on average), Bermuda is one of the most accessible diving locations in the world. Best of all, there's no special advanced certification required to enjoy Bermuda underwater. While the historic shipwrecks are truly the highlight of any Bermuda dive experience, the Island also boasts a diverse reef system complete with swim-through caves, coral gardens and more than 650 species of colorful marine life.

Pompano is located only a five minute drive from Blue Water Divers - considered the island's top scuba diving operation (click here for scuba diving package rates in conjunction with Blue Water Divers). The resort offers complimentary shuttle van transportation to/from Blue Water Divers on a daily basis. Blue Water Diver's boats are pictured on this page, along with detailed descriptions of each vessel.
