Scuba Diving in the Caribbean: Special at Anse Chastanet Resort, St. Lucia

June 1, 2011 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Anse Chastanet Resort, St. LuciaOn the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, the sandy beaches are edged by lush tropical foliage against the backdrop of the famous green peaks, the Gros and Petit Pitons. Just offshore, the crystal clear sea makes for some epic scuba diving, exploring Superman's Flight, a "drift dive on a gentle wall which drops to 1,600 feet." (The island itself, to quote St. Lucia's tourism website, is "at the tip of an underwater volcano where both beginner and experienced divers alike will enjoy the stunning variety of coral, sponge and marine life.") Scuba divers will swoon over a special package currently offered by Anse Chastanet Resort, a luxury resort with its own PADI dive facility. Book the seven-night Dive Deal package by July 15, 2011 (for travel until December 19) and you'll receive a $250-a-person credit. The package rate starts at $1,869 and includes accommodations, airport transfers, meals, welcome drink and fruit basket on arrival, non-motorized water sports and 12 beach or boat dives including tank, weights, belt, mask, snorkel and fins.
