Absolutely breathtaking!!! Very clear water,wonderful snorkeling and only a short trip off the shore, we paid $45 for snorkel gear and a short boat trip ride out and it was totally worth it.. They did feed the fish so we were able to see all sorts! You can swim out on your own if you are a good swimmer.

Visibility 100ft plus, didn’t need to dive deeper than 70ft and water temperature 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Healthy colourful reef (reds, blues, yellows), varied corals including fans and sponges. We saw a porcupine fish, boxfish, puffer, various butterfly fish, barracuda, parrotfish, various triggerfish, small cleaner shrimps, large crabs and a huge lobster to name just a few. Best to check it... More

Beautiful dive site with lots of color. We were fortunate to see a large turtle, crab and a nice sized moray eel on this dive among many other species. I would definitely dive this site again.

Excellent dive site. Try to go days where there are no cruise ships in Grand Turk, otherwise is full of snorkelers and boats.

Very healthy reef, coral is beautiful, lots of sea life. All the walls are 2000-7000 ft, lots of room to dive. Most sea life from 35-70 feet watch you profile!

This snorkel spot is one of the best I have ever been to. We booked crystal seas adventures, they were great. The water was beautiful and clear. Many types of tropical fish to see. Can't wait to go back

The library is one of the best sites to dive in Grand Turk, which is saying something, considering the many great dive spots the island has to offer.

We did a night dive here with Smitty and Grand Turk Diving. Saw giant crabs feeding themselves, several good size lobster and many parrotfish tucked into rocks in their mucous cocoon. Then we went to the shallow area, turned off our dive fights and let the fireworks begin. The bioluminescence was amazing, and it looked liked fireworks underwater.

Went snorkeling here in August and it was one of the best snorkel spots I have ever been to. I've been snorkeling in the Bahamas, the Keys, and Mexico and this was one of my favorites. I saw two sharks and a huge variety of fish. The coral was stunning as well
