We dove Devil's Grotto with a guide at Eden Rock. It's a very nice dive and the guide helped us by pointing things out. I really enjoyed it and I would recommend a dive at this spot.

Want a great in-town dive? Eden Rock is the place to stop. I've dove this site at least 30 times- and this latest dive was no different. Great swim-throughs and the Tarpon hang out beside you.

Nice shallow dive. Can be done either by boat and shore. Great for photography and general variety of diving experience.

From Eden Rock dive shop we swam out to Eden Rock and Devil’s Grotto. Both very nice, large reefs with plenty of fish. One of better reefs you will find, where you can snorkel from shore. Probably better for divers, as it has been crevices...More

You can snorkel over the swim-throughs/caves and see the Tarpon etc from above. Make sure that you check the current with the Eden Rock staff before starting out. Keep checking your location while swimming/snorkeling so... More

Sorry, i did not swim out that far so i cannot say but it did seem too far (from the shore) for me. Yes, there are picnic tables outside to sit at, if she wants.

Snorkelling at Eden Rock and Devils's Grotto (1 Replies)
Based on what I found online so far including Testudo;s information,I think the following is true: Eden Rock(ER) is north(closer to the cruise ship terminal) then Devil Grotto(dg) ER has 2 marker bouys(balls) over it DG has 1 marker bouy over it My questions are what is the better of the 2 reefs to snorkel over Are my assumptions above correct What is the distance between the 2 reefs Is it safe to snorkel there when cruise ships are in town(it seems that the cruise ship tenders would...More

It is really more like one big reef than two distinct structures. I will usually enter the water at the Paradise Restaurant entrance, fight off the Tarpon and snorkel in a circular path around the exterior both areas (Eden Rock then Devi's Grotto) and then return back over the middle of the reef. If you want to enter closer to Devil's Grotto then the Eden Rock Dive Center entrance would be the choice. I find the Devil's Grotto section to be a little more interesting since it has the caves...More

Anyone can recommend me a best dive spots? (3 Replies)
So far that I am interesting to dive are Stingray City, Devil Grotto, and Mermaid statue. Anyone else can recommend me more? I like beautiful reef view with many tropical fishes. I also want to dive where sea turtles or sharks had been spotted often.

Your best bet is to leave your dive spot decisions to the DM. Conditions and currents vary by day and they will know best on the day of your dive.

Where to park when snorkeling Devil's Grotto/Eden Rock (8 Replies)
Want to wake up Sunday morning and snorkel this area. I will be driving a rental car down from SMB. Should I park at the dive shop or is there a better spot?

We always park right at the dive shop.
