Ti Kaye’s Favourite Dive Sites South of Anse Cochon
Since diving is one of our most popular activities at Ti Kaye, it’s time we started talking about some of our favourite sites along the southern area of Saint Lucia’s shores.
Now, you would think that Turtle Reef would have earned its name because there are turtles, but that’s not the case. Instead, the site offers pillar corals and barrel sponges in the shallows, with an abundance of marine life, perfect for ‘critter spotting’ dives.
Grande Caille, also referred to as “The Big House”, starts at about 40 feet on a terrace and moves out to the lip of a steep slope turn into a wall, with the lip at about 50 feet. This is a very popular dive because of its abundance of fish and coral.
Another popular dive is Trou Diable, Creole name for “Devil’s Hole.” A very easy going dive with flat coral reef at around 40ft/12M, however the maximum depth is over 100ft/30M. Features of the dive are Finger Coral, Brain Coral, Barrel Sponges, the usual tropical fish and on a lucky day maybe as many as three turtles.
As mentioned in our last post, there’s never a shortage of great dives off Saint Lucia. Check out other Saint Lucian dive sites on our website if you would like to learn more!
