Grenada and Carriacou is a year-round twin island dive destination with over 50 dive sites and 20 wrecks with impressive marine bio-diversity. Many of the sites are within a short distance of the shore, enabling morning dives to be completed by lunchtime. All Grenada dive operators offer the opportunity to become PADI Certified.
Wreck sites range in level from shallow water wrecks for beginners to the 600-foot-long Bianca C, which sank in the St. George’s harbor in 1961, for the advanced diver.
Ideal for beginner divers is the World’ First Underwater Sculpture Park, featuring more than 100 sculptures that act as artificial reefs. It was named as one of the “25 Wonders of the World” by National Geographic Traveler.
Carriacou’s Magic Garden dive site is good for all levels of divers. Not only does it include a small boat wreck, the dive also ends in a rock garden with giant boulders where the volcanic activity gives the effect of champagne bubbles.
Not keen on diving? Don’t worry – known as the “Isle of Reefs,” Carriacou’s shallow clear waters are also perfect for snorkeling!
