Join Aqua Hut's Jeff Davis to Anse Chastanet.
"...If you are looking for an unusual dive destination with strong components of romance, creature comforts, adventure and dive professionalism, Anse Chastanet Resort should definitely be on your wish list. By the way, while you are there, make time to visit the terrestrial delights of the island, including near by wonders such as the Sulphur Springs, Diamond Waterfall and Mineral Baths, the Rain Forest and, of course, a closer view of the twin volcanic spires known as the Pitons..." - Stephen Frink
Location, location, location! This is the fundamental attraction ANSE CHASTANET resort has for traveling divers. It is in the heart of St.Lucia's very
best diving: the entire region surrounding ANSE CHASTANET is vested into an award winning marine reserve (SMMA) which has been established since 1995 to
protect the pristine beauty of St.Lucia's coral reefs.
SCUBA ST. LUCIA is a PADI 5 Star Dive Resort and DAN (Divers Alert Network) Partners in Dive Safety facility, located at the south end of ANSE CHASTANET beach. Founded in 1981, Scuba St.Lucia has established itself as one of the world's top diving destinations. Scuba St.Lucia offers great diving and comprehensive facilities for divers of all levels.
Perfectly set up for both beach and boat dives, Scuba St. Lucia offers guests gear storage; a well equipped scuba store; three compressors; rental dive gear and an underwater Photo and Video center.
All dives offered by Scuba St Lucia are guided by an instructor or dive master to maximize diver safety and enjoyment. The marine reserve policy is to "look but don't touch". Even empty shells should be left on the sea bed, and great care taken not to touch or kick the corals so hopefully the reef can be preserved for future generations of divers to enjoy.
The shore dive is a required "first" dive for dive guests. It allows divers to feel ensured that all equipment is functioning properly, that their buoyancy skills are adequate for entering the marine reserve and to provide an orientation to the type of diving for which St Lucia is known. This reef is a favorite of most professional underwater photographers and videographers who visit Anse Chastanet.
The boat dives should also not be missed - 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 the Gros Piton, Piton Wall, the wreck of the "Lesleen M", Anse La Raye and Anse Cochon. Closer to home for the
afternoon boat trips but no less spectacular sites, the diver can explore Fairyland, Turtle Reef, Grand Caille, Trou Diable, the Pinnacles and
Night dives are offered at least twice weekly on Anse Chastanet's Reef, which really "wakes up" at night, with many interesting crustaceans on the move, large basket stars, sleeping parrot fish, octopus and squid, bioluminescence and the "THING".
$2399 per diver, $2109 per non-diver based on double occupancy in a Superior View room
