The dive sites are numerous and beautiful and are suitable for both beginners and experienced divers. There is of course a wide and colourful range of reefs and marine life to see, but also shipwrecks and caves. For beginners, Monkey Shoals and Friars Bay Reef are good sites that are easily accessible. Sandy Point is a national marine park for its beautiful coral heads and marine life. The wreck of the River Taw, the wreck of the M.V. Talata and the recently sunk wreck of the Corinthian are popular sites. Turtle Bar is of course famous for its many turtles, but you will also see them frequently at Frigate Bay Reef. For more experienced divers, the strong currents at Nags Head are a nice challenge, and the large selection of fish at the aquarium is a good place to visit.
