One of Grenada’s most famous dive sites is the Bianca C. Justifiably known as the ‘Titanic of the Caribbean,' the Bianca C. is one of the top-ten wreck sites in the world. The 600-foot long cruise ship sank near St. George’s Harbour on October 22nd, 1961 and today sits upright on her keel in 165 feet of water.

Grenada and Carriacou have more than 50 dive sites, varying in depths and complexity from 20 feet to 200 feet. Grenada is home to the World’s first Underwater Sculpture Park – created by Jason de Caires Taylor in Moliniere Bay. Whether you’re looking for a tranquil experience or something more adventurous, Grenada has something for all dive and snorkel enthusiasts.

“Diving in Grenada is an unforgettable experience. Our waters are home to many shipwrecks and abundant marine life, including large schools of fish and undisturbed coral,” said Simon Stiell, director of tourism for the Grenada Board of Tourism. “We encourage divers and snorkelers to visit and explore this beauty and history for themselves.”

Grenada boasts numerous dive sites, below are a few of the island’s most fascinating spots:

Veronica L - This much loved and highly photogenic wreck is festooned with colorful soft corals, sponges and marine life. The open hold, crane and surroundings of this 25 metre cargo ship are home to seahorses, moray eels and on occasion, frog fish. Shallow in depth, it can be enjoyed by divers of all levels. This wreck makes a fantastic night dive.

Purple Rain - Swim amongst barrel sponge, filefish, hawksbill turtles, stingrays and barracuda while on this breathtaking drift dive. This is an exhilarating opportunity to discover Grenada’s illustrious purple Creole wrasse.

Flamingo Bay - Plentiful marine life, including: elk horn coral, ball rope and bornel sponges abound in this site. Divers might also catch a glimpse of the yellow tail snapper, bar jacks and banded jaw fish. This site is perfect for all levels making it the most popular amongst divers in Grenada.

Boss Reef - Situated on the island’s southern most point lies this five mile stretch of reef, showcasing Grenada’s thriving marine life with lobster, spotted moray eels, trunk fish and crab.

Dragon Bay - The expansive sand channels will act as your guide through this spectacular reef, filled with multi-coloured sponges, reef fish, octopus, lobster and southern stingray.

Fisherman’s Paradise - Located in the rougher seas off Point Salines, where the Caribbean Sea meets the Atlantic, this site is suitable for the advanced divers. Here divers can marvel at Atlantic spadefish and large grouper.

Buccaneer Wreck - Filled with octopus and barracuda, this magnificent site is conveniently located just 72 feet from Moliniere Reef. The Buccaneer Wreck makes for a quick and easy excursion.

Happy Valley - A part of Grenada’s Marine Protected Area is this stunning display of sponge as well as soft, black and whip corals. Here divers are privy to beautiful schools of angelfish, large grouper and an abundance of reef fish. Visitors to the site will also notice an old coral-covered anchor, delicately tucked away amid the reef.

Hema 1 Wreck - Rough seas were responsible for the sinking of this striking coastal freighter during a passage to Trinidad. Today the ship sits three miles off the Grenadian coast and serves as an advanced dive site due to the rapid currents and depth. Divers will spot numerous types of marine life including nurse and reef sharks.

Japanese Gardens - These colourful coral formations create a garden like display known as the Japanese Gardens. The shallow site demonstrates intricate reef arrangements intertwined with soft coral. The gardens are home to exotic marine life such as hawksbill turtles, porcupine fish, lobster and on occasion nurse sharks pass through.
