Crown Point Area
We classify the Crown Point Area as the areas between Cove Reef and Arnos Vale, the south and southwestern part of the island.
Here we have about 25 different dive sites, spread out across the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, thus offering something for all tastes and levels of experience. Some of the sites are beach accessible, but most are boat dives with arrival times varying from 10 to 35 minutes and depths from 8 to 30 meteres.
An abundance of diverse and relaxed dive sites all along the Caribbean coastline. Experience the breathtaking Mt. Irvine Wall, with its caves and underground tunnels. Cruise along Dutchman’s reef, take your time to discover all the hidden creatures like Octopus, Lobsters, and Scorpion fish that the reef has to offer. Great for Photography!Then there’s the famous wreck “M/V Maverick”, an old roll-on cargo boat is also a highlight of this area with a length of 85 meteres and laying in just 30 meteres of water with the topmost areas in 18 meteres of clear water. This is a dive that guarantees enjoyment for all divers.
