Preparing for Disaster

hurricane matthews pathwayA tropical wave, named 97L, formed off the coast of Africa in late September, travelled west across the Atlantic, and upon reaching the Eastern Caribbean became Hurricane Matthew on September 28th 2016. Matthew rapidly intensified and became a Category 5 storm on September 30th and proceeded to track northwards, towards Haiti, Cuba and ultimately The Bahamas and on to the US East Coast.

Labelled a major storm and significant threat from early on, Matthew was taken very seriously by the Bahamian population. Preparations began early, and picked up pace as Matthew moved, ever so slowly, closer. Matthew had the capital, New Providence in his path and the residents were taking no chances.

Believe it or not, Nassau has probably the largest variety of dive sites in The Bahamas. This is because of our proximity to the Tongue of the Ocean, which can be best described as an underwater Grand Canyon, which merges with the Florida Gulf Stream and the Atlantic Ocean, providing a plethora or marine life and habitats for eager divers to discover. The Tongue of the Ocean offers great wall dives, which start somewhere around 60ft and drop off to thousands of feet! Along this wall hide lobsters, octopus, and lionfish; you will see turtles out in the deep cruising, massive tuna, wahoo, mahi mahi and at more times than not, a local Reef Shark cruising by in the distance.
