Very nice shark when diving Coral Garden, Soufrière Marine National Park in Dominica (With DiveDominica) Coral Gardens North (Dangleben’s North): Located just south of Pt Guignard, this site is part of a large reef system made up of Dangleben’s Pinnacles, Coral Gardens South and even L’Abym North. This site can have some strong currents but also can be extremely easy. Starting in about 40 ft of water, the reef drops gradually to the west and can be done on its own or as a drift to Danglebens. Large sponges, brilliant color, and beds of finger coral are the dominating elements of this reef system. Turtles are frequently sighted, and when the currents are just right, large schools of horse-eyed jacks, sennet and various other fish congregate here. The end of the dive can be spent in about 40 ft watching the yellow headed jawfish in the sand. All of the diving on Dominica takes place within one of three Marine Reserves: The Cabrits National Park Marine Section in the north, the Salisbury Marine Reserve in Dominica’s central west, and the Soufriere Scotts Head Marine Reserve, the oldest Reserve on the island, located in the south west of the island. As it is just a short boat trip from Dive Dominica, most of the diving takes place in and around the Soufriere Scotts Head Marine Reserve. Not surprisingly, the topography of our dive sites mirrors that of our diverse landscape above. High mountain peaks above create dramatic drop offs, walls and canyons below. Mountain passages become swim throughs and caverns. There are massive boulder fields and volcanic craters underwater just as there is above water. Pinnacles rise up everywhere. We even have active underwater fumaroles.
