Get in the excitement of meeting these fascinating sharks up close and personal. Grenada offers shark diving as one of the best spots to encounter sharks in their natural habit. Even so on other sites sharks may be encountered as well, below are the best sites to meet this fascinating predator.
Shark Reef - 30' - 65' / 10 - 20 m
The gentle slope drops down to a 60 feet deep sandy flat bottom, where you might spot sting rays. Most of the nurse sharks sighted here however were found in the shallows, hiding under corals and stones. Sometimes you will loose count on the sharks and turtles, some other day you will see a few only. But the reef itself is beautiful and always steaming of fish and marine life.
Wreck San Juan - 90' / 28 m
The wreck of an 80 ft. inter island fishing vessel, was broken apart and moved 50 yards by hurricane Ivan in 2004. Due to its location two miles off Grenada's south on the Atlantic side, mostly strong currents sweep over it. A school of rainbow runners will guide you the way to the small boat laying in the middle of nowhere on a plateau. The 1975 sunken vessel is packed by nurse sharks of all sizes you may imagine up to 9 feet.
Wreck Hema 1 - 100' / 30 m
Hema 1 sank in May 2005 on its return voyage to Trinidad 4 miles off the south coast after it had emptied its cargo of cement in St.George's harbor. At first unstable it settled after storm Emily passed through and is now one of the most attractive dive sites on the south coast. However strong currents and its depth making it an advanced dive site; nevertheless it is a big attraction for sharks of the area to take a rest or check it out.
Wreck King Mitch - 120' / 35 m
Advanced diving at its best; currents, blue water descent, depth, 4 miles out in the Atlantic ocean! The former US Navy minesweeper turned cargo vessel sank 1981 after the ship leaked and the bilge pump failed. However all crew survived and today nurse sharks, reef sharks, eagle rays, sting rays, turtles and swarms of barracudas and other pelagic fish meet here.
Lighthouse Reef - 35' - 70' / 10 - 22 m
At times huge nurse shark females gather at this place to rest and give birth, even though unfortunately we have not seen it live as yet. Nevertheless the size of these mamas is impressive, most times disoriented shark suckers are trying to stick onto the most frightened of our divers.
Bird Rock Island - 60' - 100' / 20 - 30 m
Far out in the midst of the Atlantic Ocean a flat rock housing hundreds of sea birds, is a spectacular dive site under water; strong currents, huge boulders, sea fans, elk horn corals, deep see gorgonians and everything the diver wishes for: eagle rays, sometime mantas, stingrays, sharks, turtles, lobster, morays and plenty of pelagic fish life too!
