GUSTAVIA (St. Barthelemy)

Cherry red roofs, yacht-sprinkled bays and a sophisticated French flavour all add to the gorgeous Caribbean allure of Gustavia. The island's capital rolls around a horseshoe-shaped harbour, where gleaming yachts hover and fancy boutiques, bars and restaurants fizz with life and clinking cutlery. Head up to red and white Gustavia Lighthouse to look down over the revered waters, which attract many a celebrity guest and diving enthusiast to these shores. View more

Christopher Columbus was the first European to discover this volcanic island in 1493, giving it the name St Barthelemy in honour of his younger brother. The island has a unique history as a Swedish colony, following a deal with the French King Louis XVI to exchange the island with Sweden for better trading rights. It was returned to French control in 1878 and is now a French Overseas Collectivity. Learn more of the Swedish legacy at Fort Karl - which sits on a 29-metre-high hill above Shell Beach. The fort now lies in ruins, but you'll meet wandering iguanas, and the views down of sweeping sea and emerald coastline are some of the island's finest. Down below, a delightful spread of tiny pebbles and shell fragments are scattered like confetti and lapped by crystal-clear water. A little exploration uncovers countless other glorious beaches and natural wonders. Colombier Beach is a little out of the way but cradles silky-smooth sands and typically turquoise waters. If you have chance, find somewhere to settle and sip fruity rum cocktails as the sunset flares across the waves.

Anchoring on the coral reefs is also prohibited, resulting in a spectacular underwater world. An exceptional variety of sea life flourishes in this part of Caribbean. From the smallest colorful reef fish to bigger predators such a nurse sharks, tarpons, and barracudas, all these fishes are friendly; in St-Barth you dive in total safety. Scuba diving in St Barths is for everybody with numerous dive spots (22 different dives in The Marine Reserve alone) from 20 to 99 feet deep; coral reefs, caves, canyons - all in 82/84°F crystal clear water.


Marine Reserve, Colourful Reefs, Coral and Fish

Whether you are planning to make your first Caribbean dive or are an experienced diver, St. Barths is an ideal location for diving. The island is situated on a coral plate and the maximum depth available is approximately 90 feet. The dive spots are no more than 5 to 20 minutes from the harbour of Gustavia. There are reefs, caves, canyons and wrecks in the area. Sea turtles, rays, eels, tarpon fish, and baby nurse sharks are very common. The coral is colorful and everything in the water is friendly. In the winter there are whales that you may hear singing. In the summer you may occasionally see dolphins.


Depart the pier in your catamaran and head out to the chosen dive site for the day (selected based on water conditions and experience level of divers on board). On the way to the dive site, you are provided with all your equipment and a thorough pre-dive Briefing. Upon arrival at the site, make your giant stride into the crystal clear waters and meet the friendly marine life that flourishes beneath the surface.
