Diving antigua

We are going to antigua the first week of june and staying at sandals. Does anyone know about the dives sandals takes you on? Are there any sites that are "not to be missed"? Do you need to wear a wetsuit? Any advice/suggestions for tours other than diving? Thanks.

Never been diving before, so can't answer your question, but I'm just going to bump your thread so that someone who does know can answer

We just got back from Sandals. They have a 2-tank morning dive at 8 am and a 1-tank afternoon dive at 1. Make sure you bring your C card and dive log. If you haven't been diving in the past 6 months, they will ask you to do a skill checkout in the pool first.

My husband did one of the afternoon dives. It went straight out from the resort to a 25-foot wreck (I could still see the dive boat from the resort). He was not that excited about the dive and didn't do any more. There were just so many other fun things to do. :-) But probably the morning dives are better since they go farther to the nicer reefs.

The water was about 82 degrees and should be warmer in June. Unless you get cold easily, you won't need a wetsuit.

We took the Best of Antigua tour (private taxi) so that we could see some of the island. We also took the Segway tour which was an absolute blast. A lot of people we met did the circumnavigation tour and said it was great.

Have a great trip to Sandals! You'll love it.

Thank you! Any tour or destination on the island that shouldn't be missed? We are planning on the Monserrat helicopter tour and the adventure antigua Eco tour. Thanks.
