Some of the more interesting include the Deep Plane - a tiny one engine plane resting 90 feet down that is teeming with coral, sponge and barracuda - and the nearby Arches, whose tops are covered with colorful plants and sponges and surrounded by stingrays. There is also the Shallow Plane, another plane wreck, as well as the wreck of the Blue Castle ship, and the Bond. Scuba divers should not miss the stunning Throne Room, which is accessible at 38 feet and is largely enclosed and full of lobster and fish, as well as King Fish Point with its beautiful coral and splendid colors.

The seas off Negril also boast the splendid forty million year caves, as well as the Sands Club with its brilliant sights looking down into the deep beyond, and Spadefish Reef. Thanks to the work of the Negril Marine Park, the majority of these dive sites are well preserved and their continued maintenance will ensure enjoyment of these great sights for years to come.
