Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:
Certified Scuba Diving Adventure (two sites)
Designed for beginning, intermediate and advanced certified scuba divers, your mask, fins, buoyancy control devices and weights will be provided; all you need to bring is a towel, sunscreen, and hat. Don't forget an underwater camera to capture all the colorful marine life and extraordinary sights that you'll encounter.

Buck Island
A National Wildlife Marine Reserve, Buck Island is home to Turtle Cove, an astonishing world of green sea turtles, octopus, conch, urchins, starfish, squid and a variety of tropical reef fish. Once the boat nears Buck Island, the captain will tie off at a reef with a depth of approximately 60 feet.

Shipwreck Site
The 90-foot-long Cartanza Senior was used during World War II to transport goods and carried cargo between the islands after the war. Abandoned in 1970, she was finally laid to rest off Buck Island in 40 feet of water.

What you will see along the way:
Head out into the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean, acclaimed as one of the world's best dive spots. Keep your underwater camera ready for brightly colored parrotfish, spotted butterfly fish, a barracuda or two, pink or orange conch or a moray eel poking its head out of a crack in the coral.

Special Notes:

Minimum age is 10 years old. Be sure to bring your swimsuit and a towel. Certified divers must present their Open Water certification card to participate.
