200 yards from the boat ramp on Sosua Beach, this dive has a few deep rocks down at 40 meters (131 feet) and you can work your way up and have lots to see including schools of grunts and an array of reef fish, and even some pieces of train track from the long forgotten banana exporting facilities that were here in the 1950s. Another favorite multi-level dive that can turn a nice deep dive into a long de-saturation dive!
Three Rocks and Coral Gardens
A 15 minute boat ride from Sosua, heading east, a 30 meter (100 feet) long freighter that was sunk on purpose for diving by a dive shop owner named Hans in 1992, sits in 35 meters (117 feet) of water. As it sits in open ocean its affected a little by the currents and harsh winter swells but even so it has an abundance of marine life including a few that call this home like a big green moray and big great barracuda. Since it is a deep dive we like to do this as a multi-level dive going from the wreck to the reef that sits south of the wreck, making a 35 to 40 minute dive and not just a 17 minute dive on the wreck!
A 10 minute boat ride west of Sosua Beach, 5 rocks is just that - 5 huge coral rock formations that span out about 100 meters (128 feet) or the length of a football field. Here you can go around the rocks at any depth from 4 meters (13 feet) to 18 meters (59 feet). Here you can also snorkel or free dive. You can see a lot of crabs, lobster, octopus, and different corals both hard big brain and lots of different soft sponges.
