Just a mile and a half from the picturesque town of Soufriere on St. Lucia's south-western Caribbean shoreline, Scuba St. Lucia is part of the resort of ANSE CHASTANET which is nestled amidst a 600 acre tropical estate with two soft sand beaches bordering on pristine coral reefs. ANSE CHASTANET is in complete harmony with its natural surroundings - the ideal scuba hideaway for all those seeking a tranquil or romantic vacation spot, or perhaps a little of both.

The Anse Chastanet Reef makes for an amazing dive day or night. Just 15 yards beyond the waters edge, the reefs remarkable ecosystem offers an amazing profusion of unusual tropical marine life in 20 to 140 feet of calm clear water. In the shallow areas be sure to keep your eyes open for peacock flounders, octopus, needle fish and turtles. Or drop down a little deeper over dense coral growth to see puffers, moray eels, parrot fish, lobsters and even sea horses. The Anse Chastanet Reef is a unique dive site for all abilities and is especially good for macro photography.

Just returned from a group trip to St. Lucia, Anse Chastanet / Jade Mountain. Always one of my favorite trips. Scuba St. Lucia always does a great job, with a primary focus on safety and service. They understand the divers capabilities and desires and select sites to accommodate. The dives are easy (no "reverse drift dives") and relaxing. Several great... More

Beautiful coral and fish. Clear waters and great instructors. Secluded area with gorgeous beach front. Also, there is a great hidden burger tent if you walk down the beach a bit. (Locals can tell you where)

We spent last week on the volcanic island of St. Lucia with a group of 30 people organized by my favorite dive retailer Divers Direct/Ocean Divers. The island's early volcanic activity gave St. Lucia three distinct mountain features. St. Lucia's most noted and pictured feature are the twin pitons located on the southwestern side of the island. The highest point... More

Personnel is not kind at all. Casual tourist willing to snorkel are considered second class tourist. Employees and manager seem to unlike you being a customer. I really had a bad experience. They seem to dislike your purchase. It never happened to me.

I got my scuba certification in St Lucia after taking a two day pool course at home. We waters were crystal clear, warm, and full of sea life. Errol was a great instructor...super patient and fun! I highly recommend getting your certification in St Lucia.

Scuba St Lucia is located on a beautiful beach via a 2 mile challenging access road. It's worth the drive to have easy access to premier dive sites around the Pitons. The dive operation is best suited to experienced divers who have their own gear or like to set up and manage the rental gear themselves. The dive operation does... More
