Antigua's south coast is lined with underwater caves and walls that lead to the bottom of the sea, where further out you'll find a collection of coral that is just begging to be explored.  Few can stop at just snorkeling and will go on to become certified so that they can participate in open water dives and see how deep the spectacular sites go.

There are a couple of dive operators, a dive shop, and a small number of dive sites in the area.
