Ray of Hope - Bahamas

Ray of Hope is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Nassau, Bahamas. This dive site has an average rating of 4.60 out of 5 from 5 scuba divers. The maximum depth is 91-100ft/28-30m. The average visibility is 71-80ft/22-24m. This dive site provides bathrooms and airfills.

From SportDiver Planet’s 50 Greatest Dives, #23 Like peanut butter and chocolate, New Providence Island’s Ray of Hope perfectly marries two of divers’ favorite things: the massive wreck of a 200-foot-long former freighter with dozens of gray reef sharks. Purpose-sunk in July 2003, Ray of Hope would be a marvelous dive in its own right — it’s relatively shallow (70 feet at the deepest), intact and sits upright in a bed of white sand. It’s the location that makes the dive so special though; because it’s only a few hundred feet from Shark Arena, where local operator Stuart Cove’s conducts popular shark feeds, the sharks, along with massive groupers and the occasional stingray, are always hanging around. And for the “shark-wreck” lover in all of us, that’s a recipe for success. — DE
