West Caicos formerly known as Belle Island with only eleven square miles makes it perfect for viewing most of the island from to the top bridge of our Newton dive boats. The island offers beautiful low shore cliffs and a five mile long beach where snorkelers and beach bathers can enjoy.
Most, if not all of our diving sites at West Caicos are sheer wall drop offs which ranges from 40 ft up to 1000 ft in depth. Based on the various depth limitations West Caicos will be best to accommodate a more range of divers from beginning to diving up to Advance divers. The boat journey is roughly about 45 minutes from the south side marine.
This dive site forms a very interesting reef for beginners, as it encompasses a nice road shape sandy bottom with the reef formation on both sides. This site is a very good spot for an abundance of juvenile fish, butterfly fish, Sargent majors, glassy eye snappers and our favorite, the damsel fish. Their nickname, "Disco Fish", is due to the fluorescent lights around them.
The top of the wall is a sandy plateau with many small coral heads. The sandy area attracts many rays and flounders as well as yellow coral shrimp. The reef on top of the wall has small clumps of staghorn coral and home to grunts, groupers, rooster- tail conch and many other juvenile fish.
The name Spanish Anchor comes from the old anchor that is embedded in the coral within a swim through at the wall. Watch carefully as the anchor has been there so long it is completely encrusted with sponges and coral. Very good spot for seeing nurse sharks and groupers.
The wall begins in about 50f ft and the top lip of the wall is a dense coral reef with many cleaning stations. The gulley gets its name from the cut in the reef that forms two distinct sections before dropping off vertically. The vertical wall here has many undercuts covered in sponges and black corals.
This reef is roughly half a mile long and lies to the east of French Cay. A popular section of the reef is located in a large bowl on the wall which tends to eliminate the effects of currents encountered elsewhere on the reef. Large schools of barracuda and mahogany snappers are always present and two large (7-8 ft across) elephant ear sponges are found twenty feet apart at the 85fsw contour.
