French Cay - Double D

Simply described as a “Garden of Eden”, the wall is overgrown, and there is an abundance of marine life. There are two huge coral mounds teeming with fish. A resident spotted scorpion fish often poses for photographers. Spotted eagle rays are often seen here.

French Cay - G-Spot
An absolutely beautiful wall with many huge, deep-water gorgonians and orange elephant ear sponges growing at the wall’s edge.

French Cay - Rock and Roll
The top of the wall is at 40 feet, and there are plenty of barrel sponges, elkhorn, and pillar corals. Juvenile barracuda and lobsters are spotted during the day. This a great afternoon and night dive.

French Cay - West Sand Spit
(5 miles south of French Cay) The wall starts at 40 feet and is covered with huge coral formations—pillar corals, barrel sponges, and deep-water gorgonians. Look for nurse sharks, French angels, ocean triggerfish, and huge stingrays. This site is weather permitting.

Northwest Point - Black Coral Forest
The walls starts at 45 feet and drops to below 300 feet. There is an overhang where at least five species of black coral are growing. The base of the overhang is at 75 feet.

Northwest Point - Shark Hotel
Named for the Caribbean reef sharks sometimes seen cruising by, the wall levels of at 90 feet at a plateau covered with plate corals. At 100 feet, a chimney cuts through the reef exiting at 130 feet on the deep wall with lots of pillar coral on top of the wall.

Northwest Point - The Crack
The wall doglegs to the south forming a huge penny slot crack that divers can swim and exit at any time. A massive barrel sponge with an anemone above it is at 85 feet. Divers can swim to the south where you may encounter schooling fish and a resident sea turtle.

Northwest Point - The Dome
Once the site of a French television game show, this sunken dome offers a spectacular night dive.

West Caicos - Driveway
One of the most diverse dive sites along West Caicos, the boat is moored in 35 feet of water offering the options of swimming to the wall over “the Driveway”, a large sand chute, or cruising on top of the wall in shallower water where there are many interesting isolated coral heads. There are anemones growing in the shallows at only 5-10 feet of water depth.

West Caicos - Gullies
Divers can swim through a penny slot gully that starts at 45 feet and ends at 75 feet where there are beautiful sponge formations at the edge of the wall and schooling fish on top of the wall.

West Caicos - Rock Garden Interlude
This wall is divided into sections with large and beautiful sponge formations. Divers encounter friendly sea turtles and spotted scorpion fish. The sand flat on top of the wall has several nice coral heads and fascinating but shy garden eels.

West Caicos - The Anchor/Whiteface
Called “Whiteface” for the white sandy cliffs along West Caicos, this site provides a swim- through gully with a 17th century anchor wedged in the north side. A beautiful, large white anemone sits at about 95 feet at the base of the gully. Divers keep an eye out for the resident reef shark who is not camera shy and enjoy great night dives with lobsters, octopuses, and nurse sharks.
