Diving Navassa's Coastal Waters - 21 photos

A thin coating of coral and sea fans clings to the eroded rock of the island beneath the sea cliffs. Extending 60 -100 ft beneath the surface, the cliffs offer divers the opportunity to experience clear Caribbean water at its best. Visibility may be 150 ft or more and provides spectacular views of eroded boulders, caves, and walls.

The dives begin off the North Coast, and head counterclockwise around the island, finishing off at South Point.
