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, Eagle Ray Pass is named for the rays that are often sighted here. At 40 to 100 feet, this wall dive appeals divers of varying skill levels.

Grand Canyon
Near the Sandbar west of Rum Point, this 80- to 110-foot wall dive is for intermediate and advanced divers.

Julie's Wall
This dive site lies to the east of the place where Frank Sound Road intersects with the main road. It is 60 to 100 feet below the surface. An intermediate level dive, the wall is home to black coral formations and rays are often spotted here.

The Maze
This is a honeycomb of tunnels that form a veritable maze. It's on the South Channel, not far from the Wreck of Ten Sails. This site is 60 to 100 feet below, and is best dived by intermediate and advanced divers as some of the passages lead much deeper.

Snapper Hole
A 30- to 60-foot dive, this is a favorite with beginners but still offers 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.

Tarpon Alley
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.
