Explore the Wreck Capital of the Caribbean

GRENADA : Wreck Capital of the Caribbean
Grenada is one of our favourite Caribbean diving destinations, but its stature is not
limited to just the Caribbean, as Grenada offers some of the best wreck diving anywhere!
This tiny island, situated in the Southern Caribbean off the Venezuelan coast offers the
ultimate holiday experience.
Spectacular beaches fringing the gin-clear waters of the Caribbean, amazing rainforests
bursting with life, mangroves, huge waterfalls and breath-taking scenery – all enhanced
by the flamboyant night life and ambience on this ‘spicy’ island!
Below the waterline, Grenada really delivers too. Quality dive centres provide excellent
service, in an almost British fashion when it comes to organisation too.

Karen (Master Instructor) and Trevor (Course Director and IT) will be leading the trip to make sure you have a great time

Aquanauts Grenada

Aquanauts Grenada, a PADI 5 Star Dive Centre, offers large comfortable boats, which
amenities such as a diving platform for safe entries and easy boarding after dives, shower,
toilet, camera rinse tanks and table, shaded area and all safety equipment. To get to the
dive centre from the hotel you take about 5 steps along the jetty - it is as simple as that!
Grenada Dive Sites offer a wide variety for all experience levels from beginner to
advanced diver and for every taste - be it shallow coral gardens, unspoiled reefs or
interesting wrecks. Grenada is renowned for its large portfolio of wrecks, all artificial reefs
covered with corals. Among it the most famous one, dubbed "Titanic of the Caribbean",
the wreck of the cruise liner Bianca C.
Aquanauts dive centre is conveniently located on the south coast with its dive dock and
just few minutes boat ride to Grenada's ship wrecks and beautiful reefs. Aquanauts takes
pride in personal and professional service, no guest has to carry tanks, Nitrox is free and
gear is loaded and rinsed by their team. Their knowledgable instructors love to tell you
about the Ocean's fragile eco-system, and guide your improvements in scuba diving.

The Scuba Diving

The reefs, both local and offshore, together with a protected marine reserve, offer divers
plentiful marine life from the small to the big stuff. There is also an underwater sculpture
museum – it is surreal to sit on a bench at 10m and take in the view of the collection of
human sculptures created by the British sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor and depicting a
true picture of Grenada’s culture and people.
Where Grenada really comes into its own is the huge choice of wrecks. Often referred to
as ‘the wreck capital of the Caribbean’, Grenada offers the wreck enthusiast 15+ quality
wrecks to explore, including the most famous of them all, the Bianca C, a 200m cruise
liner sitting upright at a maximum depth of 50m. This one is not to be missed – a huge
wreck with loads to offer suitably qualified divers, she holds a firm spot in the ‘Top 10
Wrecks of the World’ according to several dive magazines. Sharks, barracuda, eagle rays
and the like are all seen here, but having been at rest since 1951, coral growth is good
too, and to dive one of her swimming pools adds to the experience!
But not only the wreck enthusiast gets their way in Grenada – Reef and Marine life are
abundant around the Island. Rare Sightings of Black Brotula for example and critters are
as common as pelagic marine life. Sea turtles such as the Hawskbill Turtle and the
Leatherback Turtle have their nesting grounds around the islands and a common sight in
spring and summer. A large population of Nurse sharks lives around the Atlantic dive
sites, some of which give protection to pregnant nurse mamas twice a year
