In the shallow areas be sure to keep your eyes open for peacock flounders, octopus, needle fish and turtles. Or drop down a little deeper over dense coral growth to see puffers, moray eels, parrot fish, lobsters and even sea horses. The Anse Chastanet Reef is a unique dive site for all abilities and is especially good for macro photography.

The dive operation is really well run. They operate a couple of boats, all the sites are near, so it is only 10 - 15 minutes out and back. They come back to shore for the decompression time between dives so it is nice to use toilet facilities grab fresh water and relax in between dives. The dive masters we... More

We stayed at Anse Chastanet for our honeymoon and ended up diving here 6-7 times over the course of our stay. We dove multiple times with Errol and others and felt safe and relaxed the whole time. The dive sites are fantastic (not the greatest visibility in the Caribbean but plenty of wildlife that we have not seen in other... More

Captain Kerwin was wonderful and Thaddeus his first mate was really nice too. We had a wonderful day and had the boat all to ourselves because someone else cancelled.

I took the PADI Drift Diver Course with Charlotte and she was wonderful. Its a very pretty location and great for drifting. The only issue is plan on allowing time to drive there.

Scuba St. Lucia is an excellent dive shop, very well managed by Beto and Charlotte. if you're staying at Anse Chastanet the location is perfect, on the beach near the bar/restaurant area. We brought our own gear but the hire kit looked good and there is plenty of space to wash and dry stuff (under lock and key at night)... More

Staff were friendly, and the facility was easy to locate. A fair overpriced compared to many other dive locations in the Caribbean, however, the resort is expensive also and to be expected. Snorkeling from the shore is fantastic.

The 3 stars is for experienced divers. It is really 5 stars for novices. Read on: The shop is well run and efficient. Everything is well organized and staff well trained. The equipment appears well maintained (I have my own so this is only based on looks). Boats are well maintained, fast, and quite easy entry/exit. They did not crowd... More

My husband and I did 3 - 1 tank dives, and we were the only ones on our trip.

Just returned from a group trip to St. Lucia, Anse Chastanet / Jade Mountain. Always one of my favorite trips. Scuba St. Lucia always does a great job, with a primary focus on safety and service. They understand the divers capabilities and desires and select sites to accommodate. The dives are easy (no "reverse drift dives") and relaxing. Several great... More
