Check out Aqua Marine for scuba diving at Cow and Calf rocks. Must take a boat to this dive spot. Beautiful swim under rocks and canyons. Beautiful fish and reefs. Great dive spot!

Has cool caves and canyons. Lots of beautiful sea life. We saw two sea turtles up close! There is a significant wave surge at times. There is something called champagne cork which is a cave that pops you out at the top. It's great fun but a little scary your first time, so I would recommend going with a dive master who knows what he is doing. I would highly recommend this as a dive.

I dove Cow and Calf with Red Hood Dive Center. This is an excellent dive to see awesome coral, sharks, sea turtles, and some great short underwater caves. It was a relatively shallow dive around ~50 ft. but that is all you need. I would definitely recommend trying this fun dive.

I did a dive at Cow and Calf with Water World and had a great experience. I wouldn't send a novice or a snorkeler here. The waves at the surface are rough and there were fairly strong surges even down low. The coral is healthy and colorful here and the pass throughs are amazing. I must have hit it just perfect because I saw and photographed just about every type of marine life available. Saw Hawksbill, spotted moral, large eagle ray, bull shark (only identified by blowing up photo several days later), multiple black tips, school of tarpon... If you go you need a guide or experinced leader to navigate the pass throughs and get the most out of the trip. Max depth was about 40 feet. The so called blow hole is cool but make sure you have enough weight, I had to fight to keep from corking to the surface when I popped out. It was heavy current coming from the North and some cold water.

I seem to do this dive every year. Always a good spot. I love going thru the cave and up the "blow hole"
