Updated on April 13, 2010

 I've been to Grand Bahama Island twice, and took a ton of photographs, since these photos are just sitting around I figured I would go ahead and share them with all of you whom may be interested in seeing them.

I will provide information so you know where the shots were taken, in case you'd like to visit for yourself. Enjoy.

This shot was taken in the waters at Paradise Cove. Also known as Dead Mans Reef
