Comments This is our third trip to St. Lucia, Anse Chastanet since we were certified here in 1994. Still a first rate operation, wonderful accommodations and food. Very good and safe dive operation. unlimited shore diving right off the beach several times a day. 3 boat dives per day with some input from passengers about what dive sites to see. No big fish, but best "black" seahorse we've ever seen, watched it for 20 minutes and crew looked hard to find one for us for 3 days. good for beginners as well as advanced divers. the most luxurious dive resort we go to and well worth the money, lots of deals though from time to time. Eco conscious and lots of non-diving things to do for both divers and non-divers on and off property. Funky little city nearby walkable with lots of local flavor. Three restaurants on property including one right on beach. Divers will prefer the "beachside" rooms, which are huge and very nice, but no view. the other rooms are up many steps on hill with killer views, but lots of hiking. lockers though so you can keep all stuff on the beach at the f=dive shop so you don't have to go to your room in between dives. Don't miss superman's Flight and the small wreck. good and easy shore night dive.
