DIVE SPOTS TO DISCOVER

From shallow reef to deep wreck dives – diving with us never gets bored. We show you the beauty of Guadeloupe’s marine environment. In a friendly and personal atmosphere, we take care that every guest feels comfortable and gets the experience he or she is looking for.

Réserve Cousteau

Since 2009 the marine area around the island Pigeon is protected and called “Réserve Cousteau“, inreference to Jacques-Yves Cousteau. The dive pioneer shot parts of its movie “Le Monde de Silence” here and strongly campaigned to protect this maritime treasure. Having then become a territory classified as the heart of Guadeloupe National Park, it benefits from one of the most important protection status according to the criteria of the International Union of Conservation of Nature (IUCN), where the establishment strives to combine environmental protection with development of economic activities.

With an 20 minute boat ride we reach the “îlets Pigeon”, where beautiful dive spots like “L’Aquarium” or “Le Jardin de Corail” are waiting. More advanced divers can enjoy an impressive drop off or search for hot thermal springs. In honor of captain Cousteau a statue was placed under water and as become a popular spot for divers.

“Our” Wrecks

Gustavia

The cargo vessel Gustavia rest in 40m depth, advanced divers can discover the wrack Gustavia. The vessel was sunk in 1989 and rest on a sandy bottom. Since then colorful corals, sponges and a divers marine life settled on the 49 m x 7,50 m wreck, which also became a home for barracudas.

Augustin Fresenel

The marker buoy vessel rest in 32 m depth the Augustin Fresnel excites divers with its rooms and decks waiting to be discovered. The ship was sank in 2003.

Franjack

The former dredge vessel was sunk in 1996 and rests at 23 m depth. The Franjack is perfect to make your first safe wreck dive experience. Its variety of fish, sponges and even turtles makes the Franjack and its engine room a top spot for divers of all levels.
