The Clark’s Cay Team, divers themselves, know their guests enjoy nothing more than being in the water. Any water, all the time.
So, in 2017, while renovating the island amenities, they decided to build a private waterpark for their guests’ enjoyment during their “surface intervals!”
The waterpark originally included a spa and an infinity pool with a waterslide entering a meandering lazy river, complete with a tunnel and waterfall.
In 2019, the Team expanded the waterpark “toys” to include some giant inflatable ride-on floats, and just off the sandy beach, a water trampoline. Paddleboards are now available in addition to kayaks. And lest we forget to mention it – the PADI dive operation offers up to three boat dives daily!
There are 50+ named Guanaja dive sites, another 6 or so “kept secret” by the Clark’s Cay dive staff for their guests only. More dive sites being discovered every day along the barrier reef off Guanaja and around the numerous cays that surround the island. Below is some information on just a few of our favorite Guanaja dive sites.
Visibility is generally around 100 feet/30 meters. During the rainy season (roughly October to January) visibility can dip below the usual, though we are always able to scout out the areas that offer the best conditions. Currents are mostly mild to non-existent.
Guanaja’s fringing reef is a protected marine reserve making it an ideal spot for scuba diving and snorkeling nearly anywhere offshore the mainland. Part of a volcanic and coral mountain range called The Bonacca Ridge, Guanaja marks the beginning of the second largest barrier reef in the world – the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef. It offers a mixture of pinnacles, vertical walls, lava tunnels and wrecks including the nearby Jado Trader, one of the most sought-after wrecks in the Caribbean. It also boasts nearly every species of coral growing in the Caribbean Sea, including several species of rare black coral, and sponges of all colors, shapes and sizes.
Nearly all of the sites offer lively shallow terraces that are perfect for snorkeling as well as scuba diving. Separate snorkel tours are offered to ensure you are taken to a site that is guaranteed for good snorkeling. When joining the scuba divers, we also do our best to accommodate sites that work well for divers and snorkelers.
Expect to see plenty of silverside sardines as well as glassy sweepers, groupers, barracudas, huge groupers, yellowtails, moray eels, and swarms of silverside sardines, sharks, eagle rays, and plenty of reef fish
