Diving#10 in Best Things To Do in Guadeloupe
- 0.0Food Scene
Guadeloupe features calm waters ideal for aquatic enthusiasts. Some of the most popular dive sites lay in the bay of Petit Cul-de-Sac Marin, located just south of Rivière Salée (the channel that parts each wing of Guadeloupe). More standout diving areas fringe Les-Saintes. Diving spots surrounding Fort Napoleon on Terre-de-Haut are some of the area's finest. However, none of these can compare to the unique environment of Cousteau Underwater Reserve in Bouillante, Basse-Terre. The sheltered reefs brim with magnificent fish and other subsea splendors, such as star coral.
You don't have to dive deep below the surface to catch sight of Guadeloupe's rich diversity of aquatic life. One TripAdvisor user recalls, "We snorkeled along the shores with clear views to 10 meters and saw fantastic underwater scenery with corals, fish and turtles, including swimming within reach of beautiful parrotfish."
Numerous tour companies offer a variety of dive types, which range from night dives to daytime underwater explorations. Two trusted diving companies are Heures Saines and Plasir Plongee Karukera. Prices vary depending on skill level and chosen diving destination. First-time dives (which include training and equipment) cost around €50 EUR (roughly $64 USD). For current schedules and pricing information, consult Heurus Saines official website (written in French).
