East End Dive & Snorkel Sites
Tucked between Rum Point and West Bay at the mouth of the
North Sound lies the island's number one dive site -- Stingray
City -- as well as many other sites for all levels of divers. Snorkelers
will also find that Stingray City is a not-to-be-missed attraction.
Eagle Ray Pass
East of Tarpon Alley and across from the main channel into the North Sound,

tunnels, plenty of marine life, and even an anchor from an 1872 shipwreck.
The site is on the East End outside the reef that forms Colliers Bay.
This wall dive of 60 to 100 feet is near Stingray City, just outside North
Sound. A favorite with underwater photographers, this site has dropoffs,
canyons, and, of course, huge schools of shiny tarpon.
