Snorkeling, Free Diving and Scuba Diving
When the waves are gone on the North Shore it’s time to explore the reefs! Backpackers is situated right at Three Tables Beach and only a short walk to Sharks Cove. These are two of the best places to snorkel and S.C.U.B.A on the island. Explore the hundreds of underwater caves carved within the reef and experience the famous “blue room”.
Sharks Cove offers amazing diving for beginners, intermediate and advanced divers alike. Book with our friends at Eco Divers for the best dive experience!
The reefs out front (literally out front) of Backpackers are home to many green sea turtles who graze for seaweed, octopus, and many different kinds of tropical fish. Just a few of the many marine acquaintances you will encounter when you venture out into the water. Both reefs are protected as marine sanctuaries, which means its always teeming with life. Grab some FREE snorkel gear from the Backpackers stash or talk to us and we will get you set up with a trained Scuba Instructor from our friends at Eco Divers.
