Top Scuba Sites in the Caribbean

The Caribbean is well known for its underwater marine life, seemingly like another world entirely, but if you’re heading off for a diving expedition in this sun-drenched part of the world, how can you decide where to go, to get the best of the colourful world you want to visit?

It’s a hard task.

There are far too many to mention, but they generally have the same things in common – fantastic visibility of more than 100 feet, and an average temperature in the water of around 83 degrees.

If you’re wanting a little inspiration, here are five of the best scuba sites in the Caribbean, giving you a few options to choose from.

 Sting Ray City, Grand Cayman Island

As well as being a stunningly beautiful island, Grand Cayman is home to Sting Ray City, which like the name suggests, is full of stingrays. Here you can feed these graceful and friendly creatures, in domesticated feeding areas, and safety.

Bloody Bay Wall, Little Cayman

This is an underwater photographer’s dream,  with clear visibility and streaming sunlight through the glittering water. A coral wall begins at around 18 feet, featuring corals and sponges of a huge array of colours. You’ll also find countless types of fish, sure to make your jaw drop.

Columbus Passage, Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos

This diving site is right in the middle of the migratory path of humpback whales, en route during the winter months to the Dominican, but it is also full of huge coral walls to explore, and is rich in diverse marinelife.

Victory Reef, South Bimini, Bahamas

Giant loggerhead turtles and coral-laced canyons make this site remarkable. You can swim with Caribbean reef sharks and big game fish that come into the area with the nearby Gulf Stream.

Cow and Calf Rocks, US Virgin Islands

Most diver have heard of this particular site, as it’s quite popular and a good one for shallow diving. Good for beginners, here you can swim through natural arches and ledges, with plenty of hiding rocks for various creatures.

These are just five of the countless sites where you can swim, dive, and explore the underwater world in the Caribbean. Whichever island you choose to visit, you will find dive schools, so even if you’re not that experienced, or even a total beginner, you will be able to visit the residents underneath the sea, and build up your skills and confidence to explore further.
