Dive Sites of Antigua

DiveCarib is based in the grounds of the National Sailing Academy, which is situated in Falmouth Harbour, English Harbour Town, in the south of Antigua.

We chose this location as our base due to the fact that the vast majority of dive sites in Antigua are a short boat ride from here.

We select dive sites based on the experience level of the divers we have on the trip, combined with how weather conditions affect each site, while taking into account requests for specific dive sites from our guests.

We have spectacular dive sites with amazing diversity of marine life, and an incredibly dense, healthy reef, with water clarity in excess of 100ft (30m) the majority of the time.

All the dive sites listed are no more than a thirty-minute boat ride from our base, with most dive sites between fifteen to twenty minutes.

We maintain our own permanent moorings on the dive sites. Currently we have half of the dive sites moored, and the other half we use as drift dive sites.

Most of our dive sites are suitable for divers of all experience levels, although we do have sites that are more challenging from a depth and exposure point of view, whereby we do require advanced certification and specifically Deep Diver specialty for the wreck of the Montserrat.

We also recommend Enriched Air Nitrox certification for our guests planning to dive our deeper sites, and offer Nitrox diver training and certification for divers wishing to advance their knowledge and skill set in order to extend the no decompression limit on our deeper dive sites, and/or reduce inert gas loading across the board.
