St Barths Scuba Diving

Ouanalao Dive
Starting in the lagoon at Grand Cul de Sac, dives are organized primarily around the small outlying islands, which resulted from intense volcanic activity centuries ago.

From the only dive center operating along the Atlantic coast, as well as all around the island, you will be accompanied by certified instructors who lead you into a realm peopled with tropical fish, tarpons, sharks, marine turtles, stingrays, lobsters and barracudas.

All this is set in a carved relief comprising grottos, arches, and tunnels, covered with anemones, sponges, and multicolored coral.

Plongee Caraibes Dive Spots
The island is situated on a coral plate and the maximum depth available is approximately 90 feet.

The dive spots are no more than 5 to 20 minutes from the harbor of Gustavia.

There are reefs, caves, canyons and 4 wrecks in the area (3 fishing boats and a yacht that went down with the last hurricane).

Sea turtles, rays, eels, tarpon fish, and baby nurse sharks are very common. The coral is colorful and everything in the water is friendly. In the winter there are whales that you can hear singing. In the summer you will occasionally see dolphins.
