The underwater scenery in Grenada is every bit as breathtaking as it is above the waves, and just as accessable. Most of the diving facilities in Grenada are located in the south of the island, and most of the dives sites are within 15 minutes of the Grand Anse Beach. The scuba diving in Grenada is some of the best in the Caribbean, and we boast the largest shipwreck in the Caribbean as well as an underwater volcano.
The most popular site is situated at Moliniere point, which is only access able by boat. From the Grand Anse beach, it usually takes about 12 minutes to get there, and offers excellent snorkeling. The reef in this area comes to within 6 feet (2 meters) of the surface, and as it is in a sheltered location, where the water is usually quite calm and clear.  

Moliniere Reef: This is a dive for beginners as well as advanced divers. The reef comes up to within 10 feet of the surface in some places and is popular with snorklers. It culminates in a wall which drops to 60 feet and further out there are two wrecks, the Bucanneer and the Don Cesard.

Whibble Reef: A sloping sand wall that descends sharply to 167 feet to the north and gently to the south. This is an advanced drift dive over enchanting reef and coral formations. Traveling along the edge, schools of jack, rainbow runner and wrasse can be seen. Among the brown coral, along the top of the reef, you see turtles, eagle rays and the occassional sleeping nurse shark. Lobster and barracudas also abound.

Bianca C : A 600-foot cruise ship, sunk in 1961, lying on a sandy plain in 167 feet of water.The decks of the ship are accessable to divers,as they are at 90 feet.The Bianca C shipwreck is edged on the south side by whibble reef. At times there are strong tidal currents, making this an advanced deep dive (with a checkout dive required). The ship is encrusted with sponges, as well as black, soft and hard corals. There are schools of jack, barracuda and spotted eagle rays in abundance. The wall with the most proglificfish life. Shoals of creole wrasse,yellow chromis, grunts and jack knifefish lead down the wall to 90 feet, where there are grouper, jacks and raysto be seen. The wall itself is encrusted with whip coral, an assortment of sponges and seafans, in the shallower parts of the reef, black seahorses have been sighted.
