Diving in Anguilla

Quick facts

Seven marine parks encircle the small island, protecting the natural resources for generations to come.

Wreck divers, check out Anguilla. El Buen Consejo is a massive Spanish galleon, sunk during the colonial years. You can see cannons and cargo still intact on the ship, a truly unique experience. There are also intentionally sunk wrecks to see, if you just can’t get enough.

Excellent visibility is the norm, here, as the waters are quite unpolluted. You won’t need a wetsuit during your dive, either, as the water and air temperature remain around the same throughout the year.

The double reef system is a great place to find plenty of different species of coral, accompanied by typical, lovely Caribbean marine life.

Go to the offshore cays for some pristine, untouched wilderness. Diving here is exceptional, so it’s best to vary your experiences, checking out a couple of islands.

What to see

Excellent variation in coral and environments make great places for marine life to hide. You can find all sorts of Caribbean creatures here. Whales pass by on annual migrations, and sharks linger in the shallows.

Reef fish relish in the relative safety of the double reef, boasting vibrant colors and impressive sizes. You can see angelfish and plenty more of your tropical favorites. Lobsters peek out from cracks, and rays bury themselves beneath the sand.

Sea turtles also patrol these waters, so keep an eye out for these skittish reptiles.
