North Eleuthera Dive Forecast – October 2011

The cooler water temperature of October brings the big fish come out to play. This month, grouper are becoming more plentiful around the reef, along with huge amberjack and horse-eye jack patrolling the reef like a military drill team. With an abundance of smaller marine life, October may be a good month to focus on underwater photography. A great spot would be the Plateau. It is one of the most popular dive sites in North Eleuthera. This giant coral structure is an awesome site, with enough to see that you will want to come back again and again. Acres of ridges rise and fall as the coral structures undulate below you. Ranging from 40 to 90 feet, you will find schools of grouper and other sea life following you around as you navigate the Plateau’s winding features. Check out the Arch nearby—another majestic diving site renowned for its intrinsic beauty. The larger dive operators will be reopening in November so October is a good month to book an independent instructor for some great one-on-one diving experiences like the Plateau.
