Scuba Diving in Grenada Caribbean
Site: Purple Rain
Location: Near Grand Anse Bay, St Georges
Description: Reef / drift
Depth: 6 - 28 metres (20 - 92 feet)
Visibility: 25 metres (80 feet)
Purple rain is so called because of the sheer number of Creole wrasse descending in the waters like raindrops. The reef is made up of two ridges running parallel to the coastline and makes a nice relaxing dive. The reef top teems with life and there are millions of micro fish living in the reef. From the hundreds of fish you can expect to see here, some will include moray eels and sea worms, pipefish, parrotfish, angelfish, glassfish, and trumpetfish, as well as turtles and nurse sharks.
Diving with Aquanauts Grenada, this has to be classed as one of my best dives to date, not excluding the Maldives and Red Sea. Fabulous coral and sponges. Plethora of Caribbean reef fish plus large barracuda. A lovely drift.
