Whiteface (aka The Anchor or Spanish Anchor) - Turks And Caicos Islands

Whiteface (aka The Anchor or Spanish Anchor) is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in West Caicos, Turks And Caicos Islands. This dive site has an average rating of 4.57 out of 5 from 7 scuba divers. The maximum depth is over 150ft/46m. The average visibility is 101-110ft/31-34m.

The name Whiteface comes from the appearance of the ironstone shoreline cliff that is directly inshore from this site off West Caicos in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The name Anchor or Spanish Anchor comes from the old shop anchor that is embedded in the coral within a swim through at the edge of the wall. Watch carefully, as the anchor has been there so long it is completely encrusted with sponges and corals. You can see a video on this dive site at www.ScubaVisions.TV, episode #4 (

Met two beautiful large dolphins at 50’ coming back along the top of the wall. Just awesome!
