Anguilla Water Sports
Although Anguilla has no coral wall dives, Anguilla scuba dives up to 130 feet can be done. A favorite spot is at Prickly Pear Cays. On Dog Island the shore dives drop from 20 to 80 feet. The reefs between Scrub Island and the island's eastern end are also worthwhile. Tamarian Watersports (264-497-2020) offers PADI certification, a short dive course, beginner and advance open water dives, night dives, deep water dives and wreck diving.
Excellent snorkeling can also be found at Prickly Pear Cays, Scrub Island, Sandy Island, Captain's Bay, Shoal Bay West, Mimi Bay, Little Harbour Limestone Bay. Shoal Bay is ideal for beginner snorkelers. For snorkeling equipment rentals, contact Sandy Island Enterprises (264-497-6395).
