This is a boat-accessed snorkeling dive site in waters from 5 to 40 feet deep that is known for its open water surf. During a Coral Caverns snorkeling dive, you may encounter angelfish, jacks, butterflyfish, barracuda and grouper among the sea fans, sea tubes and hard corals. The dive site is located just off Green Turtle Cay about 1.8 miles to the east-southeast of Fiddle Cay.

To reach the snorkeling at Abaco Islands, most travelers will fly commercial airlines into Nassau on New Providence or fly into Freeport on Grand Bahama Island.
