San Salvador is one of the most easterly islands of the Bahamas, and is unusual as an island within the Bahamas group, as is it actually the summit of a submerged mountain, which reaches down to the sea bed some 15,000 feet below.

San Salvador is itself a small island, only 12 miles long by some 5 miles wide, however in the steep walls and drop offs that surround the island are a multitude of fantastic diving locations. The majority of the dive sites surrounding San Salvador are on the lee side of the island, away from the rougher Atlantic Ocean currents. On the calmer west side of the island, shallow reefs and dramatic walls combine to provide some of the best diving in the Bahamas.

The main reason that more experienced scuba divers visit the island of San Salvador is for the excellent wall dives, which are formed by the large undersea cliff which sits just off the western shores of the island. Although these walls start quite shallow, at around 15 metres (50 feet), they drop off to some exceptional depths once you further slightly further offshore.
