Scuba Diving Near Water Island

One of the main attractions of Water Island is a scuba diving site called Supermarket Reef.  It is also sometimes referred to as Limestone Reef thanks to its location in Limestone Bay, where divers will experience coral that forms in rows heading towards the island rather than along the shore, which make them appear like the aisles in a supermarket. 

There are at least 7 good dive sites and some dive shops to choose from.
