Welcome to Scuba St. Lucia

St. Lucia's premier dive operation

The Best Diving in St. Lucia

JADE MOUNTAIN and ANSE CHASTANET are pleased to jointly feature our premier scuba and snorkeling operation, Scuba St. Lucia, as one of the most scenic and ecologically rich locations the Caribbean has to offer – including an easily accessible coral-rich dive and snorkeling site right off shore. Scuba St. Lucia is not only the island’s longest established dive center, but a safe and well-staffed five-star PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors) operation to round out the perfect vacation destination.

Scuba St. Lucia is part of our 600-acre resort estate voted to be one of the Top Five Caribbean Resorts by both Travel & Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler magazines. Beginners fear not because this can be the place to try scuba out for the first time. Cross off a bucket-list item, have some low maintenance tropical fun, expand your photography skills to below the water, or seriously channel your inner marine biologist from childhood Jacque Cousteau TV documentaries. This is the place. Please read more about our St. Lucia Dive Centre and Dive Resort below:

The Location

Scuba St. Lucia is just a mile and a half from the picturesque town of Soufriere on the island’s south-western Caribbean shoreline, and is part of our Anse Chastanet and Jade Mountain resorts. Nestled amidst tropical forests with soft sand beaches bordering on pristine coral reefs, ANSE CHASTANET is in complete harmony with its natural surroundings–and, along with Jade Mountain, possesses certified sustainable achievements that give back to the environment. This is the perfect scuba hideaway for those seeking a tranquil or romantic vacation spot.

Scuba St. Lucia is situated just steps away from ANSE CHASTANET beach – perfect for both BEACH AND BOAT DIVES with a complete range of guided activities and PADI courses for first-timers to advanced and deeper enriched air nitrox diving. Our well-equipped scuba store includes three compressors, rental dive gear, and an underwater photo and video center. Don’t dive yet? No worries. This is the ideal place to take and introductory novice course for a guided and safe shallow-water beginner dive. Take the classes for the complete PADI course “up north” (back home) and come down here with a letter to complete the outdoor practical exam while on vacation.
