From here you can access over 30 different dive sites. The south west offer a variety of reefs with a fair amount of fish and invertebrate life. The marine park here has an underwater sculpture park created by UK artist Jason Taylor. However, the star attraction in Grenada is the wreck of the Bianca C, a 600ft cruise ship which went down in 1961. The largest wreck in the Caribbean is a formidable site with the bow sitting proud out of the seabed thus earning the name of ‘the Titanic of the Caribbean’. A great dive but the currents can be strong and penetration of the crumbling wreck is not recommended Other wrecks such as the San Juan, Hema 1 and King Mitch support a great range of hard and soft corals and marine life.
