After REEF spent several amazing days at the remote and exotic island of Yap in 2016, we knew we had to return for a longer trip. With more than 100 miles of barrier reef as well as channels and lagoons, Yap has a variety of dive sites to explore.

Join us on our second visit to Jardines de la Reina (Gardens of the Queen), a marine park located on the southeastern portion of Cuba. Known as one of the best-preserved marine areas in the Caribbean, this unique location is known for its high fish diversity and biomass.
Cozumel is known for relaxed drift diving and many unique fish finds, from the endemic Splendid Toadfish, found only in this area, to the high abundances of interesting species like Cherubfish, Blackcap Basslet, and Sargassum Triggerfish.
St. Vincent is known as the muck diving capital of the Caribbean. That doesn't mean that the water is always silty though - the leeward shore of the island typically has visibility up to 100 feet due to the presence of volcanic, granite-based sand that falls quickly when stirred.
Part of a volcanic and coral mountain range, Guanaja is within the world's second-largest barrier reef, the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. Dive sites surround the entire island, meaning it's possible to find a site with calm water on nearly any day of the week.
Located on St. Lucia's southwestern coast, Anse Chastanet has beautiful views of the ocean and the Pitons, two peaks rising up from the sea. The entire region is a protected marine area and excellent, easily accessible beach diving is available directly in front of the resort.
This custom 10-night itinerary aboard the Rock Islands Aggressor is planned to coincide with a new moon, allowing us to dive a Bumphead Parrotfish spawning site.
