The Anse Chastanet reef, which is home to more than 150 different species of fish, consists of a marine plateau and dramatic slopes that fall away to a depth of more than 140ft.
The Anse Chastanet Reef is a required first dive for all our dive guests. This allows divers to feel comfortable that all equipment is functioning properly, that their buoyancy and other dive skills are adequate for entering the marine reserve and to provide an orientation to the type of diving for which St. Lucia is known. The reef is a favourite of professional underwater photographers and videographers who visit Scuba St. Lucia.
Looking for more adventure? Then join us for a night dive. After a briefing at dusk you enter the warm, clear water in search of eels, octopus, lobsters, sleeping parrot fish and even THE THING. Our guides are experts in finding all those little creatures you don’t see during the day. Join us for a night dive. It could well be the highlight of your trip! Night dives are offered at least twice weekly on the Anse Chastanet 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”.
