Best Diving in the Caribbean

by Hope Heldmar

You've traveled to the Caribbean to experience a close encounter of the ocean kind, but why spend your vacation splashing around like a fish out of water? Dive right in instead with these top spots for diving in the Caribbean.

Starting out in Turks and Caicos, you'll find one of the most extensive coral reef systems in the entire world. Book a stay at Ocean Club West for a great vacation and diving experience all in one. Ocean Club West features an on-site dive shop, Provo Turtle Divers. So if you stay here, you can let the oldest PADI-certified dive shop on the island introduce you to the cool and colorful world of coral reefs and clownfish with either full-out, multi-day scuba classes or an afternoon of snorkeling.

Let's head to Cozumel next, which is known as one of the top diving locations in the world. With clear, turquoise waters, exotic fish, ship wrecks and attractive coral reefs, Cozumel is a diver's paradise! We recommend heading to Iberostar Cozumel. Cozumel Iberostar is home to a CDC Padi Gold Palm Resort Diving Center run by Dressel Divers International. The experts at Dressel offer a wide array of classes for different levels of achievement in diving and run several excursions to elite dive spots throughout the day. This is perfect for both beginning and experience divers alike.

Last but not least, there's great diving in the Cayman Islands. Bloody Bay Wall plunges from 18 to 6,000 feet with a series of equally dramatic drop offs that will impress the most experienced diver. With stunning marine life and colorful coral reefs, the Cayman Islands are a scuba diver's dream. Stay at Reef Resort All-Inclusive if you decide to head here. This intimate resort on the quiet side of the island is home the world renowned Ocean Frontiers team as the in-house watersports operator and dive shop.

So dive right in for a great underwater experience, and when you come back up for air, you'll be greeted with a relaxing vacation - it's truly the best of both worlds.
