St. Lucia’s underwater world offer
divers the opportunity to explore the
fascinating array of marine life that lie
in its waters. Here are some diving and
snorkeling sites you can visit:
This site is the most northerly site
on the island, located in front of the
LeSport Hotel. This site is also good for
snorkeling. Scorpion Fish, Pufferfish,
schools of Grunts, rays and eels can be
seen here. Beach entry is possible at this
site. The site starts shallow at 20 feet and
gradually gets deeper, 40 - 60 feet.
There is a nice secluded sandy beach
making this an ideal beginners dive.
Further out, diving from the boat,
maximum depth is around 40ft/12m and
there are lots of trenches and shelves.
This is home to Flying Gurnard, Lobster
and large Trumpetfish.
This rock is popular with the island’s
seagull population. Eagle Rays, huge
barracudas, Parrotfish, lobsters and many
other tropical fish are seen at this site.
