Dive Sites

Divers Thirst

Depth 18-25m – A rock reef with barracudas, nurse sharks, eagle rays, stingrays and large schools of fish. Visiting this site is dependent on tides as it can be subject to strong currents.

Flying Reef

Depth 13-17m – A gentle drift along this coral reef brings divers together with stingrays, lobsters, green moray eels, turtles and the elusive cornet fish.

Cove Ledge

Depth 13m – This coral encrusted rock ledge provides shelter to Green Moray Eels, Nurse Sharks, Turtles and Stingrays.

Mount Irvine Wall

Depth 13-17m – This popular colourful rock reef with its many crevices affords the opportunity to see octopi, short nosed batfish, turtles, stingrays and eagle rays.

Maverick Wreck

Depth 20-30m – Formerly named the Scarlet Ibis, this 185ft ferry provided the sea link between Trinidad and Tobago during the sixties and seventies before being purposely sunk to create an artificial reef in 1996. She’s home to large schools of Creole Wrasse, Brown Chromis, Striped Grunts, Mangrove Snappers and a huge Green Moray, with migratory visits by Cobia.

Flying Manta

This reef is great for manta ray sightings, primarily November through June. It has a gentle slope. The current is usually mild and flowing northwards. The perfect drift dive! Lush reef, nice fishes and a current that runs straight as an arrow.
