Excellent dive operation with large boats and new new BC's.  Novel tank
storage rack in center rear of boat (a 6X8 grid) meant seats were free from
tanks. Boats had substantial covered area.

Dive Masters Errol and Keither let us set the pace and searched for
interesting fauna throughout the dives (found a red frog fish and a sea
horse).  Dives generally lasted one hour and two went to 75 minutes. Always
surfaced with nitrogen loading in the green.  Lots of lobsters, arrow crabs
and banded coral shrimp, morays everywhere.  Very healthy and diverse
sponge population.  Corals generally healthy.

Anse Chastenet is a spectacular resort with a world class staff, many of
who remembered us from our first visit last October.  St Lucia provides
some of the best Caribbean diving we've encountered - like Bonaire 20 years

Great for small stuff and some turtles.  Sharks, rays, and large pelagics
completely missing.
