The Caribbean is perfect for diving with consistently warm sea temperatures (around 27°C) and spectacularly clear waters for excellent visibility. The Caribbean offers some excellent dive sites with shallow reefs and exciting wreck dives.
Grenada is often known as the ‘Wreck Diving’ destination of the Caribbean with its amazing dive sites located no more than ten minutes off the beautiful and well-known Grand Anse Beach. With up to 15 shipwrecks to choose from, including the famous Bianca C which is better known as the Titanic of the Caribbean, there is endless sights to be seen. We offer a number of accommodations on and around Grand Anse Beach including Spice Island, Blue Horizons, Coyaba Beach Resort and Mount Cinnamon. All very different in style and suitable for those looking for a base to stay and explore Grenada from, or for those looking for a hassle-free all inclusive resort with access to snorkelling and diving.
It is also important to note that Grenada takes diving seriously and there is a Grand Anse Reef Regeneration Project underway to ensure the sustainability of the spectacular coral reefs and underwater marine life, as well as educating the children of Grenada.
There are six PADI dive centers based in St Georges and some dive centres will arrange collections from hotels, making organising diving trips that little bit easier. There really is no excuse to miss out on an incredible diving experience in Grenada.
Similarly, St Lucia has some incredible diving opportunities to suit the needs of all guests along the west coast of the island. Being one of the prettiest locations in the Caribbean, both above and below water, staying at Anse Chastanet gives guests the opportunity to dive from a direct location, whilst making the most of the vast amount of facilities provided – including six restaurants.
Scuba St Lucia offers a complete range of PADI courses, a well-equipped scuba store, rental dive gear and an underwater photo centre. The Anse Chastanet Reef is an amazin dive day or night and is only 15 yards beyond the shore. In the shallow areas be sure to look out for peacock flounders, octopus, needle fish and turtles. Dive a little deeper and you can see puffers, moray eels, parrot fish, lobsters and even sea horses. It is a beautifully unique dive site to be treasured. With around 20 – 30 dive sites and a range of courses and excursions to suit even the younger children, diving is made easy and accessible for all in St Lucia.
