Scuba St. Lucia at Anse Chastanet Resort

The beauty discovered above the sparkling cobalt of the Caribbean Sea is easily equalled by that beneath its shimmering surface. The underwater world of Saint Lucian waters has found legendary fame in dive magazines including being denoted as one of the top 10 sites in the Caribbean by Caribbean Travel & Life magazine. Waters kept amazingly clear by the currents reveal the stunning colours of the reef formations and the multitude of tropical fish species the dart among them. In some spots the lofty mountains above are mirrored below creating fascinating wall dives; in other locales the shallow shelves harbour a barrage of intriguing sea life flitting among sea fans and coral. Note: All dives must be accompanied by a Saint Lucian registered, certified dive master. A few of Saint Lucia’s most popular dive sites: Anse Cochon A picturesque sandy cove, edged by large boulders and black cliff faces, provides an enchanting spot from which to launch this underwater adventure. Approached by boat or by shore this shallow dive reaches 40 feet in depth along the northern rim and 30 feet at the southern reef. This underwater arena consists of encrusted boulders intermingled with coral and prolific in such species as grunts, damselfish, parrotfish, squid and wrasse. Anse Chastanet A remarkable dive site, the reef at Anse Chastanet begins close to shore in shallow waters perfect for beginners, before plunging to 140 feet along a unique coral wall that follows the southern headland and passes through “Fairy Land”, where visibility is general optimum. Diverse marine life, often including trumpet fish and turtles, is found providing some of the best diving in the Caribbean, both day and night. The mysterious, yet harmless, “Thing” slithers out at night and has been dubbed Saint Lucia’s own legendary “Lock Ness Monster”. Keyhole Pinnacles Caribbean Travel & Life’s top pick of Saint Lucian dive sites, these four seamounts rising out of the ocean depths are encrusted with coral and black and orange gorgonian in a spectacular underwater version of the Pitons. Filefish, grouper, snappers and seahorses are frequently viewed, adding intricate detail to this already magical site. Lesleen M and the Daini Koyomaru Provided compliments of the Saint Lucia Department of Fisheries, these two wrecks are found in the area of Anse Cochon Bay. The Lesleen M was sunk in 1986 and sits in 65 to 40 feet of water. She provides great photo opts and divers are able to easily view the hold and engine room. The ship has become a breeding ground for juvenile fishes including queen fish and French angelfish. Turtles and barracudas are frequent visitors as are the interesting frogfish, sand eels and sea horses. The Daini Koyomaru was sunk more recently in 1996 and sits in the southern portion of the bay in over a 100 feet of water. She has already attracted a number of marine species including sand eels and barracuda and having landed on her side, creates an interesting wall dive. Interior explorations offer an interesting dive for advanced divers. Superman’s Flight As the legendary comic book hero flew between the stunning Pitons in Warner Brothers Superman II, the diver soars, carried by the currents, along the plummeting wall at the base of Petit Piton in an amazing drift drive. Soft coral and a profusion of fish species are viewed in vivid colour as portrayed in crystalline waters, kept clean and clear by the currents.

    Situated right in front of the world famous Anse Chastanet Resort, this is a particularly nice site for snorkeling and for first time divers. There is a shallow reef starting in around 15ft/5M and progressing to around 60ft/18M. This is home to many species of marine life including large Trumpet Fish and Turtles.

  11. Fairyland

    This area is on a major headland and is sometimes subject to strong currents which keep the coral and sponges very clean so that their vibrant colours are visible. The depth ranges from 40ft/12M - 200ft/61M. Turtles are often seen on this dive and are usually quite friendly.

  12. Grand Caille

    Also referred as ""The Big House"", this a great dive with abundant fish and coral. It starts at about 40 feet on a terrace and moves out to the lip of a steep slope turn into a wall, with the lip at about 50 feet. The dive progresses along the wall and ends by returning up the wall; over the lip and into the shallow in the same area that Fairyland dive often ends. This is a great dive with abundant fish and coral.

  15. Pinnacles

    Four spectacular volcanic peaks rise up from the depths to within a few feet of the surface. The peaks are encrusted with Black and Orange Gorgonians and are home to Trumpet and Filefishes as well as larger species such as Grouper, Jack and Snapper. Seahorses are also seen here.

  16. Malgretoute

    The area just to the north of Petit Piton was once a leper colony but now a gorgeous black sand beach lined with stately palms denotes the starting point of this site. Enter the water at the Piton end of the beach and simply make your way towards the Piton point. Shoals of fish, southern sennet, jacks, creole wrasse and grunts pass through the area and the site boasts plenty of reef fish.

  17. Superman's Flight

    Named after a scene from the movie Superman II. Entry to the water is at the base of Petit Piton towering 2619ft/805M above you. This sloping wall dive has a depth of around 1500ft/461M. You will see massive fluorescent Sponges, large Gorgonians and many species of colourful tropical fish. A "must do" Soufriere dive.

  19. Jalouise

    This is an excellent sites. It take place on a slope of a about forty-five degrees and the bottom is mainly rubble covered with corals, gorgonians and massive barrel sponge. Fish are abundant and diverse and the current is generally just strong enough to make finning unnecessary.

  20. Coral Gardens

    Located at the base of the 2438ft/750M Gros Piton which towers above you. Depth on this site ranges from 15ft/5M to 90ft/27M. Visually stunning scenery both above and below the water. Plenty of five-finger corals and lots of juvenile reef fish make this a favourite diving and snorkeling site.

  21. The Blue Hole of Anse L'ivrogne

    This site is rarely visited. It sustained severe storms damage a few years ago and the corals have been slow to recover. However it is an exciting deep dive, with a very unusual entry. The site gets its name because when viewed from above, there appears to be a hole in the ocean floor.

  22. Wawinet Wreck

    This is possibly the best wreck dive in St. Lucia. The wreck was sunk in the 1980s to act as a fish attraction device. It is often surrounded by large shoals of grunts and soldiers fish, with pelagics guarding the perimeter. The area is prone to very strong currents so this is not a dive for either the novice or inexperienced.
