Monkey Shoal is a fine area for fishing or scuba diving. In fact, many different dives are possible here, because Monkey Shoal is two square miles of Caribbean reef, varying in depth from less than 40 feet to 100 feet.

The area usually has excellent visibility of more than 100 feet. This is a place where you can find good full growths of Pillar Coral and Elkhorn Coral, and large Brain Corals. The fish at Monkey Shoal include Glass Eyed and Yellow Tailed Snappers, French and Grey Angelfish, Nurse Sharks and Black Tip Reef Sharks.

Nevis currently only has just one dive center, which is at Oualie Bay, and which can be found on-line at: www.scubanevis.com
