Cane Bay's best attribute is proximity to a nice customer friendly dive shop (30 yards) and very easy entry/exit on a beach. Even in big waves you should be able to get out. It is the busiest site on North shore (most others are empty). Swim 200-250 yards (10 minutes or so) to the buoy and drop into steep sand slopes covered with coral. Almost all dives on North shore are very similar so this is a good starter to see what you will find on the others. Fish life has been decimated by over fishing/hunting, but there are lots of tiny fish and coral. The best stuff is in less shallow waters, and below 90 feet is pretty barren.
