Bolo Point offers some of the most beautiful dives on the island.
You have the option of diving over mountains, gorges, and walls. Water
conditions may change quickly at this site. Extreme caution and good judgment
should be used. Monitor your depth gauge regularly when diving here; depths
exceed recommended limits for recreational diving with the deepest points being
well below 200 feet. Near the small caves to the left, you may see lionfish,
copper sweepers and an occasional grouper. The mouth of Bolo Point's most
prominent cave sits at about 90 feet. Diving is not recommended around the cave
as World War II artifacts, including artillery rounds, have been discovered
here. Platter coral layers provide homes for a variety of tropical fish, and it
is not unusual to see a nurse shark or large snapper.

a parking lot on the right. Getting down to the water line at Bolo Point is a
rigorous hike over jagged rock. Evaluate water conditions carefully before
stepping in. Rapidly changing surf and currents can make this spot extremely
