#1 - Chouchou Bay
Prepare yourself to be the center of attention as you suit up as there are few divers who come to Chouchou bay and the kids really enjoy commenting on all the stuff divers carry into the water. This site can be challenging if there is a current as it can push you into the wall where there may be fire coral. Also, depending on tides, the swell can also be an issue. With swell also comes bad visibility here because the beach is a fine white sand which is easily suspended in the water with the wave action. Check your tide tables before making the long trip out there as current and swell will make for a mediocre dive. About one hour drive West from Cap Haitien Chouchou bay is located on the North coast. One must drive the National road #1 to the intersection that goes to Port Margot at which point you take a right. Go through Port Margot for another approximately 10 kms. After going over a small bridge over a mangrove area, start looking on the right for an opening to the bay. Park in the first opening without houses for easy access to the beach. As can be seen in the Google image, the best place to enter the site is just east of the coral formations on the western end of the beach. During low tide this is really the only option as the coral is above water level and hard to walk on due to its irregular surface. Once you have enough depth you can descend and follow the small coral wall to the West.
