This diving spot is one of the top rated sites in the Caribbean, and this place has something for everyone. Easily less than 100 yards from the shore, the bay has an opening depth of only 30-40 feet but can get as deep as 3,200 feet. Cane Bay is a gorgeous living coral garden filled with coral of every kind. Loaded with tropical fish and marine life and nineteenth-century anchors, this site is a diver’s dream.

SALT RIVER

Salt River is an excellent place for you to dive right off your boat into depths of 30-100 feet. Stop by here right after Cane Bay. This site will remind you of the Grand Canyon, and each side has its own special appeal with many swim-throughs to explore. You can find turtles, dolphins, and sharks around this site.
