This site is iconic and very busy. It’s an easy dive in 30-40 feet of water and many instructors use this site to count as an ocean dive for SCUBA certification classes. If you are going to do it, get there early before it gets...More

We went a snorkel trip to Christ of the Deep and Grecian Rocks. Christ of the Deep is in deeper water and Grecian Rocks is a shallow location. Both sites have plenty of fish and beautiful Coral Reefs.

We scubaed with Amoray. There were snorkelers onboard sometimes, but my impression is that the boat was dedicated more to scuba in terms of the depths and sites we visited. If you just want to visit the Christ of the Deep... More
