Activities

Virtually the entire shoreline east of Ocho Rios to Galina Point is fringed by a reef, and it’s great for snorkeling and scuba diving. One of the best sections is Devil’s Reef, a pinnacle that drops more than 60m. Nurse sharks are abundant at Caverns, a shallow reef about 1km east of the White River estuary; it has many tunnels plus an ex-minesweeper, the Kathryn. Most resorts have their own scuba facilities. As well as independent operators, upscale hotels also offer water sports.
