SO CLOSE AND YET SO FAR AWAY

Looking for a break away from the ups and downs of life that demand so much of you? Looking for a place where you can relax and renew your own energy and vitality? Abaco is the place! It is so very close and feels so very far away from everything!

The vibrational energy of this Island is amazing! Infused with the calming rhythm of the surrounding water, life here moves at a slower pace. Many who come here feel drawn into a wonderful state of relaxation. Residual stress and anxiety drain away leaving space for pure enjoyment of the land and the sea. And, the land and the sea have much to offer.

We at Above And Below Abaco believe the land and the sea offer opportunities for wonderful experiences that will stay with you long after you leave this Island. These are experiences you can recall and enjoy again and again whenever you need a break away from the challenges of ordinary life. We have many activities that will provide outstanding Island Experiences no matter what the weather.

SCUBA AND SNORKELING

 

SCUBA and Snorkel Diving on our beautiful reefs immerse you in the very essence of Abaco's healing energy. For a period of time you become part of a harmonious environment. Each species of fish, corals and other living creatures coexists in the flow of life. Each takes from the whole only what is needed for survival and leaves the rest. Each is vibrantly alive and fully engaged in the present moment.

ISLAND HOPPING

 

Island Hopping from Cay to Cay is a great way to experience Abaco. We visit Man-O-War and the cute little ladies in the Albury Sail Shop making bags of all sizes and descriptions. After a short tour of the Cay we're off to the Hope Town Lighthouse. The view from the top is spectacular! This historic lighthouse provides a beacon over the Abacos that can be seen 19 miles out to sea. It is still lit by a flame magnified and sequenced by antique crystals. Nipper's on Guana Cay is often a requested stop. This famous attraction overlooks the barrier reef and is a great place to have lunch, walk the beach and snorkel on reefs near the shore. Little Harbour and Pete's Pub are favorite stops on our southern trip. In addition to a delicious lunch you can walk the beach, do some shelling, and visit the historic foundry and museum. And, Island Hopping excursions also include a stop at one of our beautiful reefs for a refreshing SCUBA or snorkel dive. There are so many places to visit and things to do. Your group can design your own day of Island Hopping activities.

BLUE HOLE DIVING

Blue Hole diving allows you to appreciate the foundation of the island. Layer upon layer of limestone, magnificently huge stalactites, and the deep fresh water aquifer all combine to support the very land itself. These Blue Holes are located back in the pine forests and bush. Unaffected by wind or surge they provide avid SCUBA divers with great open water diving no matter what the weather.

INLAND SNORKELING ADVENTURES

 

Inland Snorkeling Adventures take you to areas of calm water along Abaco's shoreline where you get to enjoy great snorkeling and see much of the Island. There are beaches covered with sea glass and shells, inlets flowing and teeming with life, blue holes with great legends surrounding them, and protected reefs along the shore. A delicious Bahamian lunch makes a perfect ending to the day.
