Named for its crescent shape not because this is where Turtles hang out (although they sometimes do). Depths range from 40ft/12M to around 140ft/43M. Lots of Pillar Corals and Barrel Sponges in the shallows and plenty of varied marine life make this an interesting “critter spotting” dive.
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.
Located at the base of Petit Piton this dramatic wall drops from the surface down many hundreds of feet. It is covered with Sea Whips, Gorgonians, delicate soft corals and lots of Feather Duster Worms. This is a colourful dive with lots of different things to see.
Le Trou Diable (Devil’s Hole)
A very easy going dive with flat coral reef at around 40ft/12M, however the maximum depth is over 100ft/30M. Features of the dive are Finger Coral, Brain Coral, Barrel Sponges, the usual tropical fish and on a lucky day maybe as many as three turtles. A nice second dive for around 1 hour.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Named after a shipwreck which killed a party of Nuns and is today commemorated by a Cross which has been erected on the point above the dive site. Shaped like a figure “9”, maximum depth is around 70ft/21M. There are lots of large Barrel Sponges, Brain Coral and occasionally Stingrays.
Anse La Raye Wall
This dive site was named after the village of Anse La Raye (bay of rays). Depth is from 60 – 110ft/18 – 34M. This dive features a beautiful sloping wall that is alive with a multitude of different fish life and many different types of coral. Rays are often seen on this pretty dive.
