Carriacou Silver Diving
The 30 metre long wreck of the Westsider was officially sunk on September 4th 2004 and is in excellent condition. Fortunately it did not suffer any damage from hurricane Ivan! The dive is only suitable for experienced divers and there can sometimes be a current. A safe and enjoyable wreck dive with already loads of marine flora and fauna, especially nurse sharks and lobster, queen angelfish, french angelfish, barracudas, critters and more than average coral growth one expects in such a short time...
