About Jamaica

Jamaica has much to offer above and below the water. You can relax or play on some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, enjoy climbing and hiking the Blue Mountains that reach to more than 7000 ft., head out for a day of deep sea fishing for Blue Marlin, tuna and wahoo. Not to mention the arts, music, historical sites and shopping Jamaica has to offer.

But if its diving you want, Jamaica has it. Dive sites are close by and professional operators help to make Jamaica a great dive destination. And, with the establishment of marine parks in Montego Bay, Port Antonio and Negril, fish populations are flourishing.

Montego Bay is famous for its wall dives, and is known for its mass of coral caves, tunnels and canyons.

The underwater terrain around Negril has excellent patches of spur-and-groove corals including caves and overhangs, as well as "coral cottages" in depths of 60-plus feet. There are also several close-to-shore wrecks to explore.

Kingston is one of the Caribbean's best-kept scuba dive secrets. Port Royal, which abuts the Kingston airport, is rich with history of pirates and sunken ships that now provide haven for a dense array of tropical fish.

East of Ocho Rios, Devilís Reef, a pinnacle, drops from 60 feet to over 200 feet, with a sand shelf at 130 feet. Caverns, a shallow reef about a quarter mile long, has endless small tunnels, with silversides and nurse sharks often in residence.

Starting in 30 to 40 feet of water, the wall off Falmouth runs within a half-mile of shore. Chubb Castle, a Falmouth favorite, starts shallow, its top decorated with soft corals and basket sponges and its wall strung with rope sponges and black corals. A chimney, dropping from 35 to 90 feet, leads to even more tunnels and caves.

Climate Average 78 - 85F 25 - 29C year round. Cooler in the mountain areas.
Water Temp Averages 78F 25 C throughout the year. Visibility can reach 100 ft 30 m
