Hurricane Wilma Missed The Bahamas, All Dive Operations up and Running

NASSAU, Bahamas, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire/ — The Bahamas Diving Association is pleased to announce that Hurricane Wilma Missed the Bahamas: All Operations up and running at 100%.

Thankfully, Hurricane Wilma skirted the Northern Bahamas, and passed North of the island of Grand Bahamas.

According to Neal Watson, President of the Bahamas Diving Association, “All our dive operators are up and running at 100%, thankfully, it was just a brush when it passed here.” Mr. Watson continues, “The Islands of The Bahamas has been fortunate this year, as all the major systems have passed by, or were just tropical storms as they entered the country. However, South Florida was not nearly as lucky, many of our dive operations have U.S. reservation offices located in West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. These areas are without power, and many offices will be closed for several days. I would suggest divers traveling to the Bahamas check and confirm diving plans with our various members in The Bahamas.”

Storm updates and current information can be found on the official website for the Bahamas Diving Association: www.bahamasdiving.com.

The Bahamas Diving Association is the official association of dive operators for the country, comprised of 35 resorts, dive operators and dive live boards within The Islands of The Bahamas.
