Diving & Marine Life

Before the volcano disrupted normal life, Montserrat was gaining a modest reputation as an undiscovered destination with much virgin diving. The National Trust is planning to set up a National Marine Park which will include a reef building project. The best sites are along the northwest coast and have not been harmed at all by the volcano.


Shore diving is good from Lime Kiln Bay, where there are ledges with coral, sponges and lots of fish; Woodlands Bay, where there is a shallow reef at 25 to 30 ft; and at Little Bay. There are some shallow dives from boats, suitable for novices or a second dive, but also deep dives for experienced divers. Pinnacle is a deep dive, dropping from 65 to 300 ft, where you can see brain coral, sponges and lots of fish. Diving and kayaking are offered by Sea Wolf Diving School, Woodlands, T4917807, F4913599, kre...@candw.ag A shore dive costs US$40, a single tank boat dive US$50, two tanks US$70, scuba equipment hire US$30, snorkel gear rental US$10, PADI Open Water certification course US$375. Wolf and Inge Krebs started the dive operation in the early 1990s and there is little they don’t know about Montserrat underwater.
