Martinique Dive Spots - South West

L'Arbre Mort - Grande Anse

L’Arbre Mort - The name of this dive site translated - The Dead Tree - can be found on the right side of the Grande Anse bay heading out from the coved beach. A dive site accessible for all levels and a real favourite for beginner diver levels especially due to the amazing luminosity: Discover Scuba Diving & PADI Scuba Diver. Also popular with underwater photographers & videographers thanks to the rich fauna & flora found on the sandy plateau (depths up to 12 metres) filled with a variety of colourful sponges and an abundance of marine-life from Moray Eels to juvenile sea-turtles. Sloping off to 25 metres for the more skilled scuba diver is a beautiful coral garden. And if your lucky enough to dive on a day with current, enjoy a drift dive from L’Arbre Mort to the Cap Salomon dive spot! 

 

Look out for: Black Trigger Fish, Juvenile Sea-Turtle, Lion Fish Cave, Gorgonia, Porcupine Fish 

La Piscine de Salomon

La Piscine de Salomon - an easy to navigate dive spot with lots to see and a dive to suit all levels of divers, and a marine-life rich experience for discovering scuba diving. Depending on the current there are 2 very different drift dives heading off to either the Cap de Salomon in one direction & the Baleine dive spot in the other. As well as the usual rich reef marine-life, between 22 & 30 metres there is a spectacular school of Atlantic Spadefish mixed with magnificent Jack Eyes! All along the dive spot, right hand to the reef you will see many barracuda hanging around too! Again another firm favourite for underwater photographers & videographers - expect some magnificent images! 

Look out for: Sea-turtles especially left hand to the reef, super-sized Spiny Spider Crab, Atlantic Spadefish, Barracuda, Jack Eyes 

La Pointe de la Baleine

The story behind why this dive spot named "La Baleine" is probably told thousands of times a year at pre-dive briefings! So the story goes the rock which marks the dive spot resembles a whale "Baleine" in French! Whether it's true or not we will leave you to decide! Nevertheless this dive site is a favourite with underwater naturalists of all dive levels. The dive starts over big bolder rocks, home to giant crabs, eels, and even sea-turtles. Dropping off to tons of barrel sponges and a sandy plateau this site offers great variety! 

 

Look out for: Sand Tilefish building their nests marked by a circular collection of shells and small rocks surrounding a tunnel in the sand!Watch carefully as she goes about her business of building and protecting her den!
