The Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean
Easily accessible from the U.S. by a selection of domestic and international airlines, the islands of the Mexican Caribbean, Bahamas, Bay Islands, Belize, Caymans, British & American Virgins, Turks & Caicos, Tobago, Greater and Lesser Antilles, and Grenadines offer warm, clear waters for both new and experienced divers. Hard corals such as star, elk horn, pillar, brain, feather and more share the water with tube, barrel and elephant ear sponges, anemones, crynoids, nudibranches and large and small fishes.
The Atlantic hurricane season is officially from 1 June to 30 November. There is nothing magical in these dates, and hurricanes have occurred outside of these six months, but these dates have been selected to encompass over 97% of tropical activity.
The Atlantic basin shows a very peaked season from August through October, with 78% of the tropical storm days, 87% of the minor hurricane days, and 96% of the major hurricane days occurring then.
Maximum activity is in early to mid September.
