Consisting of attractive continental shelves, numerous coral reefs and several sunken ships making artificial reefs, Saint Lucia has a lot to offer the diver. Turtle watching is a great favourite for visitors and special trips are available.

A number of hotels on the west side of the island have dive centres attached and offer diver training should you require it.

At least fifteen dive operators on Saint Lucia are members of ANBAGLO which is the islands dive owners association, giving reassurance to visitors that Saint Lucia takes diving seriously.
