The Diving

Fish on Reef Seahorses

The Anse Chastanet reef starts just 15 meters beyond the water's edge and can be enjoyed as a shore dive. The reef's remarkable ecosystem offers an amazing profusion of unusual tropical marine life in 20 to 140 feet of calm, clear water. The Anse Chastanet Reef, which is home to more than 150 different species of fish, makes for an amazing dive, day or night. In the shallow areas be sure to keep your eyes open for peacock flounders, octopus, needlefish and turtles or drop down a little deeper over dense coral growth to see puffers, moray eels, parrot fish, lobsters, and even sea horses. It truly is a unique dive site for all abilities and especially good for macro photography. The boat dives should also not be missed, these include the dramatic walls beneath the majestic Piton Mountains, Superman's flight, a drift dive in the shadow of the Petit Piton, Coral Gardens and Jalousie under Gros Piton, Piton Wall, the wreck of the Lesleen M, Anse La Raye Wall, and Anse Cochon. Closer to home for the afternoon boat trips but no less spectacular sites, divers can explore Fairyland, Turtle Reef, Grand Caille, Trou Diable, Pinnacles, and much more. Night dives are offered twice weekly on Anse Chastanet's Reef, which really comes alive at night with many interesting crustaceans on the move, large basket stars, sleeping parrot fish, octopus and squid, bioluminescence and the "THING".
