Guide to Scuba Diving from Your Yacht





DIVE SITES #9, 10 and 11
 
DIVE SITE #9 - St. BartheIemy / St. Barths (French)
ANSE DE COLOMBIER - ILE DE LA POINTE and ROCKEFELLER POINT
Depth: 27ft-7Oft / 8m-21m
Yacht Anchorage: This is one of the best anchorages in the vicinity, with a beautiful beach, excellent snorkeling and a one mile hike to the nearest village. The anchorage is will protected in normal trade wind conditions but can be rolly in northerly or westerly swells.
Dive Site: Dinghy over and anchor in the lee of the Ile De La Pointe if the weather conditions permit. Explore the south and southwest reefs. Very pretty hard and soft corals with a good variety of reef fish and also a good chance of seeing turtles, rays, great barracuda, etc.. There is a white buoy of dinghies, but please note that Gustavia dive clubs have preferential use of it.
Sea Conditions: Caution must be exercised at this site. Current is likely due to its exposed position and the sea will be rough during northerly and westerly swells and very strong trade winds. Check the conditions beforehand and plan your dive accordingly.

ANSE DE COLOMBIER - WEST OF ILE DE LA POINTE

Depth: 7Oft/21m MINI WALL
Yacht Anchorage: The same as for Dive Site #9
Dive Site: Please anchor over sand in the area shown to the east of dive site, if weather permits. You may need a longer dinghy anchor line to ensure you do not anchor over coral. This is a magnificent mini wall with very pretty hard and soft corals with a good variety of reef fish and an excellent chance of seeing turtles, rays, great barracuda, etc.
Sea Conditions: This is an advanced site and extra caution must be exercised. Current is likely due to its exposed position and the sea will be rough during northerly and westerly swells and very strong trade winds. Check the conditions beforehand and plan your dive accordingly.
