Grenada is the most southerly of the Windward Islands and along with her smaller sister, Carriacou, is located at the very bottom of the chain of islands that form the eastern edge of the Caribbean Sea.
In scuba diving terms, what differentiates the nation of Grenada from her neighbours, is the wealth of wrecks that litter these shores. Nicknamed the wreck capital of the Caribbean, you could dive a different one every day of the week and still miss a couple.
The most famous is, of course, the Bianca C, a huge luxury cruise liner that sailed into Grenada with a full compliment of passengers when fire broke out. She is not the most exciting wreck dive in the area as she is now slowly imploding on herself but the Shakem and Veronica are excellant dive sites, more stable and easy to explore.
While the reefs around Grenada are typically Caribbean with plenty of marine life, they fade a little when compared with the wrecks and the unique and fascinating sculpture park. This was the brainchild of English sculptor, Jason de Caires Taylor who created and installed a dozen or so works of art on the sea floor. It is a very unexpected but fascinating dive as each one is slowly evolving into being part of the reef.
