This site is a breathtaking wall with undercuts that go down to a depth of about 30m/100ft. This site has two names. One of them is “Whiteface”, named after the steep, white cliffs along the shoreline. The other name “The Anchor” was given because there is a crack in the north side of the wall with an 21m/70ft anchor embedded. The dive site offers virgin diving near the wall with profuse pillar corals on the reef and rich marine life. Divers can also enjoy the night diving here

One of the most popular in the Caribbean and Pacific - Explorer Ventures Liveaboard Fleet offers to explore the pristine marine playgrounds of the Saba & St Kitts, Turks and Caicos Islands, and the Silver Bank  

When to go

The water temperature at Whiteface is comfortable for diving in any season: 28-29 C/82-84 F in summer and 23-26C/74-78F in winter. From June to October there is a chance of hurricanes, but at the same time the summer months have the nicest weather conditions. If you prefer to observe wildlife, especially whales, the winter months would be a better time to plan a dive trip.

What to see

The fish population includes barracudas, parrotfish, French angelfish, Nassau grouper, and white-spotted moray eels.
