Diving in Saint Lucia
Saint Lucia boasts a number of stunning dive sites that catapult divers into a tranquil world filled with secret nooks waiting to be explored. With some of the most captivating deep-sea wildlife in the Caribbean, you can experience an underwater carnival as you swim amongst schools of brilliantly coloured exotic fish. You can expect some swift currents and beautiful walls. Keep an eye out for seahorses and frogfish.
Other excursions include a visit to the world's only drive-in volcano at La Soufriere; a tour, zip-line or bike ride through the rainforest; and a challenging climb up Gros Piton – or the opportunity to drink in the views from the base.
The twin volcanic spires of the Piton Mountains, surrounded by miles of unspoiled rainforest, make St. Lucia a nature-lover’s paradise. However, it’s the underwater seascapes that draw scuba divers here. Similar to the above water landscape, you can dive pinnacles covered by coral, sponges and gorgonians in an array of different colors. You’ll also find coral reefs, sheer walls and shipwrecks that are full of marine life. Drift through Soufriere Marine Park and marvel at the beauty and diversity of the protected area. The natural charm of Saint Lucia provides the perfect backdrop for adventure and exploration.
There's plenty to keep any underwater photographer happy in Saint Lucia... wide angle or macro!
