Comments The diving in Grenada is a great kept secret. With a non-stop flight leaving from New York I can arrive in Grenada in 5 hours time. This is quicker than going to Cozumel. The boats from Aquanuts are big and have lots of space. Two divemasters Bruce and Reese were excellent at helping with gear and showing us all the great sites and critters underwater. The owners of the dive shop, Gerlinde and Peter, run a great and safe operation. We broke down on the way to dive the Bianca C. They came out in another boat right away and Peter and the Dive Masters were working to fix the engine. Soon we were on our way. The dive shop is attached to the resort so its easy for divers to get to. The resort offers breakfast with your room rate and its pretty good. The food in general at True Blue was excellent but expensive. The service is quite slow and if you are trying to catch the afternoon dive and want to have lunch, well lets just say you will have to eat and run. As far as the reefs go, Grenada has some excellent dives to offer. The reefs are in excellent condition, lots of fish and great wrecks. I even saw a seahorse! The people of Grenada are very friendly and love to party. My cousin and I had a great time and can't wait to return.
