I just don't log dives
It looks as though Grenada currently is requiring up to 2 days or 7 days of quarantine depending on vax status, so unless that changes, wasting 2 of the 6 possible days of diving having to quarantine doesn’t seem like a smart use of money. We can always push the trip back another year (anniversary trip).

so, with that being said, what other islands have must see diving? Here is what our parameters are;

would love to have tec diving options. However, if tec diving isn’t an viable option, diving rec style with doubles works too. (I’m an air hog lol) I enjoy lion fish harvesting, wreck diving and whatnot the most. Boat or shore diving doesn’t matter either.

we would also need activities or a resort with fun activities for a non Diver. Would prefer a romantic stay option too. Would also prefer a nice sand entry island like Bonaire (which is an option) over a rock entry island like Cuba (which really wasn’t a fun time. Incredibly informative but not a place I’d like to go back).

we are not opposed to anywhere as long as it isn’t cold and snowy as she loves the beach and the heat.

so, what say you?

There are lots of shore diving option from beautiful sandy beaches that have amenities like snack bars and lounge chairs to full scale restaurants. Any dive can be tech of your have the gear the gas and the time. There is one large wreck that I know of and probably a few other reach able by boat. Top side there is much to do. Downtown night life options including casinos if you like. You can stay in town or out west in the sticks, somewhat better diving out that way but longer commute to the finer things. Playa Porto Marie ( picture at top) has a really nice beach, nice reef, and restaurant, you do a dive she gets ocean side massage, you have dinner and drinks and watch the sunser.



Also, not a marine park do I think you can bag the lionfish. Check with a local shop first.
