Comments The best dive operation on Anguilla! Vigilant Diver Anguilla is a small operation with one boat that takes out four divers at a time. The allows for intimate, customized diving. Vigilant Diving Anguilla owner Rob and first mate Ray know all of the dive sites of Anguilla, the best time to dive them and have intimate knowledge of the sites. The diving on Anguilla is some of the best in the Caribbean, with plenty of large fish and decent corals. Anguilla has multiple wrecks to explore, which are covered with horse-eyed jacks, bar jacks, lobsters and more. We also saw turtles, reef sharks and Southern stingrays. Rob picks the best dive sites for the day based on the weather and the requests of the divers. We didn't have a bad dive during any of the 6 dives we were able to do with Vigilant Divers Anguilla. I cannot say enough good things about Vigilant Divers Anguilla. I highly recommend them for any one planning to dive in Anguilla and will use them on my next trip.
