Grenada Dive Sites
Scuba Diving Sites with Dive Grenada
Dive Grenada is centrally located on Grand Anse Beach at Mount Cinnamon Resort, so most dive sites are just a 10 – 15 minute boat ride away.
Grenada is blessed with over 30+ dive sites, our coral reefs are the envy of the Caribbean being very healthy with great biodiversity. We also have some outstanding shipwrecks in Grenada – more than anywhere else in the Caribbean. This includes the famous Bianca C cruise ship; known locally as the ‘Titanic of the Caribbean’.
Grenada’s proactive approach to developing our dive product saw two additional wrecks being strategically placed in 2018, the ‘Anina’ & ‘Tyrrel Bay’ which are quickly becoming artificial reefs.
Grenada’s Marine Protected Area is also home to the worlds first unique Underwater Sculpture Park now listed as one of National Geographic’s 25 Wonders of the World – we wouldn’t argue with that!

Buccaneer 80′ / 24m
This former sloop lies elegantly on her starboard side in 80 feet just a short swim from Moliniere Reef. Her retained superstructure allows a brief but entertaining swim-through and the chain locker is home to an engaging octopus. This wreck is a popular site for barracuda, and great for photography.
MV Veronica L 45′ / 14m
This much-loved and highly photogenic wreck is festooned with colourful soft corals, sponges and marine life. The open hold, crane and surrounds of this 25 metre cargo ship are home to seahorse, moray eels and on occasion, frog fish. Shallow in depth, it can be enjoyed by divers of all levels. This wreck makes a fantastic night dive.
MV Shakem 100′ / 30m
This 180 feet cargo ship took on water and sank in 2001. In transit with a cargo of cement she sank within sight of the harbour at St. George’s and sits intact on the sea bed. The bridge, captain’s quarters and engine room remain intact and are a popular diversion for the competent diver. Her propeller, crane and foremast afford some great pictures. Decorated with large gorgonian sea fans and soft corals she is an attractive dive and well worth a repeat visit.
Bianca C 100′ -130′ / 30m – 40m
The Bianca C, known locally as the ‘Titanic of the Caribbean’, due to her sheer size and presence, has very few rivals in the realms of warm water wreck diving. Diving magazines and experts have listed the Bianca C as one of the ‘top ten’ wreck dive sites in the world. This enormous 600` cruise liner sank in 1961 and sits upright on her keel in 50 metres (165′) of water. The opportunity to dive into one of her upper deck swimming pools is a particular thrill. Enjoy some great pelagic life with frequent sightings of spotted eagle rays, reef shark and great barracuda as you swim from stern to bow with the current. Due to the depth and current this dive is suitable for advanced divers only. For more of this ship’s fascinating history visit our dedicated Bianca C page.
MV Unity Courier 40′ / 12m
The 3 parts of this ship wreck lie in close proximity and are heavily colonised by a range of marine life. A short swim south will locate the ship’s two boilers and an area favoured by two great anemones. The reef and surrounding sandy patches are popular with sting ray and some sizeable conch.
MV Hema 1 100′ / 30m
This coastal freighter sank in rough seas during passage to Trinidad and is located 3 miles off the south coast of Grenada. Influenced by strong currents, this exciting dive offers sightings of nurse and reef shark and majestic spotted eagle rays hovering over the wreck. This is an advanced dive given the currents and depth.
Quarter Wreck 20 – 70′ / 6 – 20m
This dive takes in the stern portion of a larger cargo vessel which is located in shallow water just off Quarantine Point. The wreck retains her propeller and is a popular photo opportunity. A swim just a few minutes over the surrounding reef will allow you to locate the ship’s engine. Look out for lobster and southern stingray along the way.
Rhum Runner 100′ / 30m
This large catamaran was a popular day charter boat in former years. Located on the edge of a fascinatingly peaked reef she is home to a pair of large grey angelfish and frequently hosts shoals of horse eye jacks and the occasional rum bottle.
MV Hildur 115′ / 35m
This cargo ship, one of our few deliberately placed artificial reef sites, was retrieved from the corner of the lagoon in St. George’s in 2007. Located in Grand Mal Bay she has become a popular haunt for large grouper, great barracuda and a frequently sighted shoal of Atlantic spade fish. Due to her depth she is for advanced divers only.
King Mitch 110′ / 32m
The second of our Atlantic wrecks, this dive is world-class. This converted minesweeper lies on her side in 110 feet of water and offers a host of holds, ladders and walkways for exploration. The wreck is near-guaranteed to offer encounters with sharks, rays and turtles. Given the depth and current this is an advanced dive.
Tyrrel Bay Depth 15m / 50’
The Tyrrel Bay was Grenada’s main coastguard patrol boat until she was decommissioned a few years ago. She was sunk in October 2018 adjacent to ‘Boss Reef’ in the Grand Anse bay area, allowing lesser experienced divers to enjoy the wonders of exploring shipwrecks safely in a shallow environment.
Anina Depth 30m / 100’
The Anina was an inter-island freighter that was anchored off St. George’s, our capital, for about 5 years until it was given to us by the owner. We sank the wreck in March 2018 on the sheltered Caribbean side of Grenada. She lays on her side to make for an interesting dive. She has captured the hearts of many divers already.
