Underwater Adventures

Scuba Diving

Sugar Beach has one of the top diving sites in the entire world, appointed by turquoise seas, mesmerizing bays and a myriad of sea creatures.

The island forms the tip of an underwater volcano where both beginner and experienced divers can rejoice in a stunning variety of coral, sponges, and sea fauna. All dive sites are located within a distance of 5-20 mins.


  • Trou Diable Creole for “Devil’s Hole”, Trou Diable is a fascinating location. One of the largest plateau dive areas, it is also known as one of the healthiest reefs you’ll ever dive on. There is a profusion of Barrel Sponges and well-developed coral heads with schools of Chromis and Grants.
  • Pinnacles Also known as the Keyhole Pinnacles, which is located outside the bay of Soufriere. The dive site has four spectacular peaks that rise from depths to within a few feet from the surface. Trumpet fish, filefish, blennies, and other fish make this their home. Seahorses are sometimes found on this dive.
  • Superman’s Flight Located at the base of the Petit Piton, this dive site is well known for its underwater beauty and currents. Part of Superman II was filmed there and that’s why it got its name. Huge barrel sponges and lovely soft orange sponges make this a tremendous dive. When the current is present this is a perfect site for drift diving.
  • Staircase Named because of its formation, this dive is a great and beautiful site. Another untouched site which makes it an ideal home for a diverse aquatic life. Turtle of different sizes are also found on this site. The coral life is very healthy and fascinating.
  • Piton Wall Situated in the Jalousie Bay, this dive site has a wonderful wall that drops down to hundreds of feet below. Home to much aquatic life of different sizes. Seahorses are also known to be seen on this dive.
  • Piton Wall II The continuation of Piton Wall going into Superman’s Flight. Because this reef is untouched by divers it makes the site very beautiful with aquatic life and corals.
  • Sugar Beach Reef Within walking distance from the beach, this is our home reef. With easy access from the dive shop to the water, this dive is appropriate for beginners and newly certified divers.
  • Jalousie Lots of schooling fish of various sizes and color. Located at the base of the Gros Piton this site is about five minutes from the dive shop. A vast range of different corals and sponges can be seen as well.
  • Coral Garden This reef starts off in the shallows and won't go too deep as the majority of the reef is as deep as 50ft, with a few sandy patches. Usually, sargassum and trigger fish can be spotted in the deeper area.
  • Lesleen M Wreck A 165 ft steel freighter that was sunk in 1986 for the purpose of diving. It is covered with deep sea fans and sponges with a variety of reef fish. School of fish can be found in and around the wreck, as well as Moray Eels, Frogfish, Lobsters, and much more.
  • Grande Caille Creole for “Large Reef” or “Big House”, Grande Caille is known as a very dramatic site. Deep water Gorgonians, Sea Whips, Huge Brain Corals, and Barrel Sponges in pristine condition can be seen here.
  • Turtle Reef A crescent -shaped reef that drops quickly from a plateau to a sandy turtle grass bottom. Located in the bay of Anse Chastanet, it starts off in the shallows at about 15 ft of water with large boulders, continuing to the main reef at about 40 ft where it then drops off to over 150 ft. Spectacular Pillar Corals and huge Barrel Sponges can be seen. You are very likely to see Hawksbill and Green Turtles as it is adjacent to turtle grass beds.
  • Anse Chastanet Reef A plateau between 5 ft and 25 ft that drops down to over 145 ft. The reef is covered in gorgonians, soft coral, and sponges. Since it’s a marine reserve, the reef is covered with a variety of marine life such as Moray Eels, Parrotfish, Blennies, Crabs, and big schools of Needle Fish. For photographers, this is the chance to use your macro lens .|
  • Fairyland This tremendous dive site is the continuation of the Anse Chastanet Reef. Starting off at about 40 ft, the reef then slopes down to beyond. A very large plateau area is covered with beautiful soft corals and huge barrel sponges. Big schools of Horse Eye Jacks and Creole Wrasse make this reef their home. You can also see hawksbill turtles in different sizes. To the end is one of the most colourful walls around. When a current is present, this dive is ideal for drift diving.

SNUBA is the perfect cross between snorkeling and scuba diving. Participants breathe through a regulator attached to an airline that receives air from a tank nestled in an inflatable raft on the ocean’s surface. With SNUBA, you can even dive up to 20 feet below the ocean’s surface. SNUBA is a great introduction to diving, in the presence of a professional, insured guide, and following a half-hour lesson (but not requiring scuba certification).
