Diving in Montserrat
A portfolio of photos taken on dives in
Diving in Montserrat is a unique experience.
The island, ravaged by the volcano, offers pristine, unspoilt
underwater locations - something rarely seen in the Caribbean
What Will You
Pipefish, Flying Gunards, Eagle Rays,
Hawksbill and Green turtles. And, of course, the occasional shark like the one
above. Are these everyday encounters in your dive area? They are
frequently seen in Montserrat, where the unspoilt waters provide for a
true underwater paradise. Why not take a look at the scorpion fish (photos VI) or the
massive green moray taken at Rendezvous Reef (photos IV). All pictures on this site were
taken in the waters surrounding the 'Emerald Isle'.
Please find the feature on the Scrawled Filefish (see picture below). This is one of the most stunning fish seen in the waters. It displays dramatic colour changes and you can normally get pretty close with non-threatening movements. The What's New? section also gives a latest updates on diving conditions.
How do you get
Regular ferry and helicopter services run from
Antigua to Montserrat daily. Take a day or two out of your holiday in
Antigua to come across and sample how the Caribbean used to be. Check
out the Tourist
Board website for further details.
All photos were taken with a JVC DVL300
digital video camera in an Ikelite housing. Great camera and great
housing - I highly recommend them for anyone who wants to take
great shots, but like me, is no photography expert.
