Comments 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.
