With 650 km of coastline, year-round sunshine and abundant marine life, The Guadeloupe Archipelago is the ideal playground for both experienced or beginner divers.
On the peaceful cote sous-le-vent (Leeward Coast, Basse Terre), the underwater Réserve Cousteau is the place you do not want to miss while visiting the Guadeloupe Islands! The famous underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau called the 1000 hectares around the Pigeon Islands, off the coast of Basse Terre, one of the world’s top dive areas and encouraged its conservation since 1955. Dive into this heavenly site for scuba diving and snorkeling and see colorful marine life : corals, tropical fishes, turtles and even humpback whales await in a 28°C water. It’s also a good place to safely snorkel with children, because of its shallow waters, where sponges, coral, colorful tropical fish and sea turtles reside. Whether you snorkel or dive here, you’re sure to be immersed in the biological diversity that helped this spot gain protection. Captain Cousteau has worked to ensure that this magic space is protected today while remaining accessible to all vacationers who can come for a diving baptism or training (PADI, FFESSM, ANMP). Diving in Guadeloupe is therefore a fun activity, open to all, from 8 to 88 years old.If you’ve always wanted to take scuba diving lessons, experience unparalleled adventure and see the world beneath the waves, this is where it starts.
