Had a fabulous 1-tank boat dive to the pan de sucre and explored the plunging terrain. The reefs are still very beautiful and healthy in the 20-40ft range, but upper areas are not like they were 5-10 years ago, it will take some years to recover from the storms and global warming. The island should prevent moorings by anchor, and... More

Et voila! Here it is with Bertrand and his crew. We booked a 4 hour snorkeling trip which took us... More

We did an excellent morning dive with Matt, our Dive Master, and Bertrand, the owner of Birdy Dive Center. Boat and equipment were all top-notch and the team was incredible accommodating to our groups wide range of diving experience. The dive itself (at a place called Pain de Sucre) was surprisingly good - Caribbean dives can be disappointing in general... More

I hadn't been on a dive in 30 years, and as soon as I hit the water I panicked from the regulator. While the rest of my group went off with the dive master, Bertrand calmly talked me back to calmness and encouraged me back into the water wth baby steps. First breathing into the regulator on the boat, then... More

Diving in St-Barth is the dream ! Beautiful fishes, turtles... It is simply beautiful and abondant. Bertrand is a very experienced instructor. He knows the diving spots by heart.
