We were cruising the area and anchored in the Saintes for several nights. 
We went diving twice and were thrilled with the quality of the diving - the
corals were in great shape and the fish life was plentiful.  Two dives were
Caribbean best - L'aquarium at La Rondonde and Sec Pate.  The latter is in
the channel between Guadaloupe and the Saintes and has stiff currents but
has the best coral and fish we have experienced in 20 years of diving the
Caribbean.  This site requires the use of a dive operation and we choose to
use La Dive Bouteille.  The couple who run this shop were excellent and
helpful.  They speak mostly French but the language barrier was not a major
problem.  The island is a great place and with the excellent diving should
be on anyone's short list of destinations.
