Possible sites visited during your dive:
Lesleen M Wreck Site
In 1986, this 65-foot (19-meter) freighter was sunk by the St Lucia Department of Fisheries to provide an artificial reef for the local fish and other marine life. The site is a 15-minute boat ride from the dive center and sits between 40 and 65 feet (12 and 19 meters) below the surface of the water. During your dive, check out the soft coral and sponges that cover the ship and provide a habitat for hydroids, lobsters and young fish. It’s a great introduction to wreck diving if you’re a newly certified diver.
This dramatic and colorful wall starts at the base of the Petit Piton, the smaller of St Lucia’s two UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pitons. It drops many thousands of feet below the surface and is covered in soft coral, sea fans and crustaceans.
Anse Chastanet Reef
Covered in soft coral, sponges and gorgonians, this reef sits on a shallow plateau that progresses to 25 feet (7.5 meters) deep and then drops away to 140 feet (42.5 meters). It’s home to a variety of marine life, from parrot fish and needlefish to moray eels and crabs. It’s a great site for underwater macro photography.
