Experience the majestic beauty of the sea up close! Here are 5 of the best spots to scuba dive in the Caribbean:
RMS Rhone, Virgin Gorda
Divers from around the world flock to Virgin Gorda to explore the 150-year old RMS Rhone shipwreck off of Salt Island. There is so much to see that it is encouraged to take two scuba dives: first to see the incredibly intact bow and then to see the remains of the stern.
Coki Beach, St. Thomas
Just 50 yards from the shore of Coki Beach lie two beautiful reefs, separated by a sandy flat, making this the perfect spot for both beginner and advanced divers. Underwater explores can expect to see yellow-headed jawfish, turtles, stingrays, and cleaner shrimp. The on-site Coki Dive Centre offers boat, beach, beginners and children’s dives, as well as night dives for those who want to witness some of the extraordinary nocturnal marine life.
Something Special, Bonaire
Named after a cheap local rum, “Something Special” has stuck because of the variety of beautiful fish that reside there. The currents are gentle and the depth ranges from 6 meters to 24 meters making it ideal for beginners. Scuba divers can expect to see frogfish, garden eels and eagle rays.
North Wall, Grand Cayman
The North Wall of Grand Cayman stretches more than 1,800 meters into the depths of the ocean. Scuba divers can hope to see green turtles, eagle rays, barracudas, parrot fish, and sometimes hammerhead sharks.
Pain de Sucre, St. Barths
The island’s most popular dive location lies shortly outside Gustavia Harbor and offers five vibrant dive sites. The rock itself is covered with a variety of sponges and colorful corals, home to everything from sea urchins to stingrays to sea turtles to thousands of glistening fish- all thriving because of the island’s protective Marine Reserve.
