There is a good variety of coral, both hard and soft, which attracts large number of reef fish. Cliff in strata with spiny lobsters, grunts, spotted drums, moray eel and occasionally stingray. The reef follows a gentle slope down and an area of sand and large blocks gives interest to the terrain. Nice sand channels at the north of the cliff.

Boris Wreck

Depth: 24 metres (80 feet) to keel, superstructure at 16m (52 feet)
Recommendation: Intermediate to experienced divers

Boris was a tug boat used ostensibly over its lifetime between Grenada and Guadeloupe. It's last owner Jerry agreed that the dive operators in Carriacou could sink the boat to make an artificial reef. The previous owners of both Deefer Diving and Dive Carriacou worked together and sunk the Boris on September 10th, 2007.

Its structure of steel is covered with Yellow Sun Coral (Tubastrea aurea) and awash with marine life. Schooling barracuda can be met on the descent, and a nurse shark or a barracuda can be found skulking on the bridge. Grey angelfish, creole wrasse and Jacks swirl all around.

Both the Boris and the WestSider can be visited on a single dive as they are in approximately 100ft one from the other..

Westsider Wreck

The Westsider was sunk in October 2004 by the previous owners of Deefer Diving and Dive Carriacou in 28m (92ft) of water. The boat originally lay on its starboard side after air got trapped in the wreck on decent, but the surge from Hurricane Emily in 2005 lifted the wreck up and placed it nicely on its keel.

Today you can see a beautiful example of a wreck as an artificial reef. It is covered in black coral, yellow sun coral and a plethora of other small coral features. The boat is home to a number of large resident lobsters and a few huge Almaco Jacks too. Look out into the blue on an early morning decent and as well as schools of Barracuda you might just catch a glimpse of small Black Tip Reef sharks
