Since 2009 the marine area around the island Pigeon is protected and called “Réserve Cousteau“, in reference 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. It became 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.
The cargo vessel Gustavia rests in 40m depth on a sandy bottom. Advanced divers can discover this beautiful wreck. The vessel was sunk in 1989. Since then, colorful corals, sponges and a various marine life settled on the 49 m x 7,50 m wreck, which also became a home for barracudas.
Augustin Fresnel *
The marker buoy vessel rests in 32 m depth. The Augustin Fresnel excites divers with its rooms and decks waiting to be discovered. The ship was sank in 2003.
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.
