Diving in St. George Island

Quick facts

One of the biggest draws to Grenada’s waters are the abundance of excellent wreck dives found deep within. Some of the very best are the MV Veronica, the MV Shakem, and the Bianca C. The massive Bianca C, locally referred to as the “Titanic of the Caribbean,” is particularly popular with advanced and technical divers.

Want to see the reefs? Grenada’s Marine Protected Area is the best place to see fantastic marine life, from tiny seahorses to huge grouper. The sites “Flamingo Bay” and “Happy Valley” are easy, shallow dives that reward divers with healthy coral and plentiful creature sightings.

The most unique dive site off of St. George’s is undoubtedly the Underwater Sculpture Park, created by the sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor. The sculptures depict Grenada’s culture, beautiful human forms now encrusted by the sea. Bring your camera, you are definitely going to want a picture of this!

What to see

Diversity is plentiful in the waters off of Saint George’s. You can expect to see octopi, snapper, and colorful sponges during a dive on the reefs. Camouflaged creatures hide from sight and pufferfish idle near coral heads.

Eagle rays are common in grassy areas, and barracuda are frequently spotted near wrecks. In deeper water you have a chance of running across a shark or even a dolphin.
