The small island of San Salvador in the Bahamas, just 360
miles southeast of Miami, is one of the premier
scuba diving and fishing Mecca's of the world.
Perched on a pinnacle and washed by warm breezes and clear azure waters, San Salvador is also home to Riding Rock Resort and Marina - winner of the 2013 TripAdvisor award for excellence.
Being one of the southeastern most islands in the Bahamas chain, San Salvador, also known as Columbus Isle, is just twelve miles long by five miles wide and home to approximately 950 residents.
Life on San Salvador is pretty much as unhurried as it has been through the ages. Quiet, friendly and unspoiled it offers miles of deserted beaches and lush underwater reefs that were "discovered" by scuba divers as early as the 1960's. Shortly thereafter, Riding Rock Resort and Marina was built, custom designed for dive travelers, with all of the facilities close at hand.
Nearly 50 years later, the property continues to host dive groups, clubs and individuals from around the world who come to experience the quality and diversity of diving for which San Salvador is legendary.
Most of the 50+ dive sites are located on the islands lee side, so rough seas are rarely encountered. The dive sites are almost all walls so the possibility of going deep is available, though you need not dive deeper than 40 feet to reach the reef if you prefer to keep a shallow profile.
Shark lovers will be pleased to hear that San Salvador is home to many shark species, the Scalloped Hammerheads being a favorite with our divers.
The marina is also a highly popular stop over for visiting sport fisherman, and Riding Rock the restaurant and Driftwood Lounge a hot spot where the after-dive crowd and the after-fishing crowd can mix and mingle.
There is also a Conference Facility that seats approximately 80 for use by groups for training or meetings.
Riding Rock makes it easy for you to budget for your trip by including everything in one package price with the exception of your bar tab, any personal purchases and dive staff gratuities. So all you have to do is lay out on the beach and enjoy the fantastic Bahamian sunshine....snorkel along the shallow beachfront area....or take a dip in the swimming pool.
Whatever your option, Riding Rock offers you all of the excitement and adventure or rest and relaxation you've been searching for.
