East Bay Resort Diving
Reef Divers is the onsite scuba diving center. They typically do two boat dives a day and most of the dive sites are less than 20 minutes away. Enriched air (Nitrox) is available along with some rental gear, and they teach several dive courses as well. Near East Bay Resort there are numerous scuba diving sites. Most of these dive sites are located in the Admiral Cockburn National Park, which is a 480-acre protected area. The Arch
, East Bay Spur
, and Fish Rock
are less than a mile from the Resort’s beach area. The South Caicos Wall extends from 35ft to 7,000ft.
