Mabouya Whirlpool, Carriacou – At this site, you glide through spa-like bubbles that come up from the ocean floor, generated by volcanic activity. It’s a unique and popular experience. The reef begins at 8 metres/24 feet and slopes down to around 20 metres/70 feet. Look for the wreck of a small tugboat nearby. * Twin Sisters,
Isle-de-Ronde – A boat ride from Grenada or Carriacou brings you to this pristine dive site. Peer into the underwater cave and swim along the dramatic drop off. Look for big fish cruising in the distance.
Bianca C – Known as the “Titanic of the Caribbean,” this giant ship caught fire in 1961 and sunk in 50 metres/165-feet of water. Although the top of the wreck is at about 23 metres/75 feet, the main deck sits between 28-38 metres/90-125 feet, so it’s an advanced dive. Over the years, some of it has collapsed, but there’s still a lot of structure to see. It’s encrusted with sponges and corals and visited by schools of jack, barracuda and spotted eagle rays.

Underwater Sculpture Park – in one of Grenada’s Marine Protected Areas. With more than 50 life-size sculptures, the project shows environmental processes that turn art into an artificial reef. As marine life begins to grow on the surface of each piece, a variety of colors and patterns emerge, making a stunning visual. *
Fisherman’s Paradise – Located at the southern tip of Grenada, this dive site is where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Caribbean Sea. Frequented by currents, you may drift among schools of chub, spy eagle rays and southern stingrays, watch sea turtles and perhaps see big nurse sharks on almost every dive. The reef has many overhangs, ledges and caverns to explore, often inhabited by large moray eels.
Purple Rain – Creole wrasse descend like purple raindrops over patches of purple coral at this site. Follow the two fingers of this reef that run parallel to shore to see a huge variety of reef fish in addition to the wrasse. Look for sea worms as well as turtles and nurse sharks.
