More than anything else, Caribbean islands attract adventurers having a penchant for experiencing most exciting and spectacular diving sites. Each island and its diving sites have their own charm. Every diving site has one or the other specialty that includes untouched reefs, underwater caverns, submarine volcanoes and awe-inspiring shipwrecks.
Majority of the sites have excellent diving conditions such as a 100 feet visibility and a balmy average water temperature that makes them super apt for divers. If you are up for your Caribbean trip, you can consider one of the following ultimate Caribbean scuba diving sites:
Barbados is better known as the “shipwreck capital,” so you can expect a diving experience that takes you very close to some or the other sunken ship. Other than this, you can look forward to derive pleasure watching abundant marine life and extraordinarily beautiful coral arrangements while your scuba diving trip.
Bonaire, one of the ABC islands is the smallest and the most untouched of all three. It is the least untouched, which is why it has some of the best diving sites to offer scuba diving enthusiasts. Moreover, its environmentally conscious diving industry contributes a lot to the maintenance of the diving sites. You will love watching yellowhead jawfish and squid down there and several submarine volcanoes.
