When you’re vis­it­ing this east­ern Caribbean is­land coun­try — which in­cludes Car­ri­a­cou and Petite Mar­tinique — don’t miss the chance to buy spices such as nut­meg, sam­ple choco­late made by a co­coa co-op and, of course, get in some stel­lar div­ing, in­clud­ing these stand­out wrecks.

Bianca C Near Grand Anse Beach

In 1961, the 600-foot lux­ury Ital­ian cruise ship was at an­chor in St. Ge­orge’s Har­bor when a fire broke out af­ter an en­gine-room ex­plo­sion. To­day, ad­vanced divers make blue­wa­ter de­scents past 100 feet in swift cur­rent to dive the Ti­tanic of the Caribbean.

Shakem Grand Anse Beach

This 180-foot cargo barge went down with a full load of con­crete-stuffed bags, still vis­i­ble in the open hold. The co­ral-fes­tooned bow is pop­u­lar with pho­tog­ra­phers.

Veron­ica L Near St. Ge­orge’s Har­bor

This small wreck in only 45 feet of wa­ter of­fers plenty of ma­rine life, in­clud­ing cam­ou­flaged frog­fish, morays, rays and school­ing reef fish.
