We will explore your choice of sites from our reefs, wrecks, canyons, hot springs and drop-offs. If you choose, you can dive at night to experience the change in marine life after dark.
Choice of wreck sites
MV Corinthian and coral reef – a fully intact tugboat 70 feet down with a nearby reef system that tops out at 35-feet. You will see garden eels, large clams and stingrays.
MV River Taw – a freighter which sank in 1981 and is now broken in two. She is crusted over with coral and is home to many species of marine life such as squirrel fish, glass-eyed snappers, angelfish, rays, large schools of yellow tail snappers and the occasional sea-horse.
MV Christena – a ferry running between St Kitts and Nevis. On August 1st, 1970, it was overloaded with passengers, took on water and sank with a dramatic loss of life.
HMS Solebay – a 28 gun frigate lost on the first day of the Battle of Frigate Bay in 1782. The captain set fire to her to prevent her from falling into enemy hands and the gunpowder exploded. The remains are scattered on sandy bedrock and you can see anchors, cannons and other artefacts.
MV Talata – a freighter which sank after taking on water. Her now broken remains lie in 55 feet of water. She is home to large green moray, schools of squirrel fish and large puffer fish.

Diving days are consecutive or can be changed to suit your personal preference. Please note that the schedule may change due to weather conditions.
Water temperatures here are around 27ºC/80ºF with exceptional water clarity and visibility from 18-30 metres/60-100 feet. These conditions are constant all year round, unless there is a storm. It can be slightly colder between October and May so you may want to wear a 3mm full suit instead of a 3mm shorty. Nevis dive sites are more vulnerable to swells when the winds are high, but currents are light.
A lack of human activity and a 2-mile wide marine protected zone means that the coral reefs of St Kitts and Nevis are free from damage unlike other Caribbean islands. Our Soft Corals, Barrel Sponges, Tube and Ocean fans, are in top condition, while the many species of Hard Corals, such as our famous Pillar coral, continue to grow.
Conservation efforts have also attracted a healthy population of many different species of fish on Nevis’s coral reefs. You will also find four species of sea turtle in or around Nevis, and all are endangered. You will encounter friendly nurse sharks, rays and marine mammals in your dives.
And on St Kitts and Nevis, you will have all this underwater beauty to yourself. With only a few dive operators in these sister islands, it is unusual to encounter another dive craft on the same site as you.
