You will be able to board and enjoy our custom diving boats when you take the Southpoint Divers tour. Your diving point will be on our brand new, 50 foot Newton Phoenix. This state of the art boat is the fastest diving boat on the island. Of course, we cannot help but boast about how it is the newest one, too! These excellent boats are amenity packed and have features like bathrooms, ladders, diving platforms, and freshwater showers on board. Plenty of storage space is available on board, as well. This space is used to store everything from diving gear to photo tables.
The Southpoint Divers tour is meant for the early birds, since you will ship out at 8:30 a.m. This tour occurs once daily and stops at two destinations during the tour. You will visit and use one diving tank at the living coral reef and the other tank will be used at either Joes Tug or the Cayman Salvager.
The artificial reefs are quite an interesting sight to see. Joes Tug, for example, is a 75 foot tugboat. Located 65 feet underwater, Joes Tug is resting in a bed of coral. This tugboat turned artificial reef was sunk in 1984.
Cayman Salvager on the other hand is an enormous 180 foot vessel that sunk in 1985. This steel-hulled buoy tender now serves as an artificial reef. The Cayman Salvager once rested on its side. However, the winds of a hurricane came along and moved it upright where it now rests in between 65 and 90 feet of water.
Once you have had a chance to visit one of these artificial reefs you will move on to the only living coral reef in America.
The Southpoint Divers tour can also be scheduled in the evening hours for people that do not prefer morning excursions. We also provide wreck and reef tours, as well.
