I went scuba diving at Eleuthera (actually stayed on Harbor Island at Valentine's). One day of diving we went to Current Cut and dove "Split Reef" for our first tank. The dive master asked if I could tell how deep the water was looking down into it. I'd been in the Bahamas before and could see the sea grass growing in the bottom around the rock. You could make out the individual blades of grass. I said, very confidently, 20 to 25 feet. He smiled, said check your depth while sitting on the bottom. I did. 45 feet. I have never seen water that was "gin clear" like in the Bahamas! Oh, by the way, the ride in Current Cut is worth a trip to Eleuthera by itself. So is the Conch Chowder at Valentine's. And the pink coral sand on Harbor Island's beach...
