Pigeon Island SNUBA Dive
Tour Participation Requirements
Special Medical Restriction
Francois Le Clerc – known as Jambe de Bois (wooden leg), was also the inspiration for every peg-legged pirate over centuries of literature and movies. The Dutch and English tried to establish several camps on St. Lucia, but disease and the native Caribs drove them off. France officially claimed the island in 1635. Pigeon Island soon became a pivotal strategic location in the many battles between the British and the French in the Caribbean. Because of this, and the resulting historical and cultural significance, the island was declared a national park in 1979.
Pigeon Island's preserved natural beauty makes the waters offshore a breathtaking SNUBA experience. Explore your own little stretch of the Caribbean Sea with just a brief orientation. See a dancing spectrum of colors as spot flounder, parrotfish, lobsters, and octopuses swim among the coral reefs.
When you do finally come up for air, the rest of Pigeon Island National Park is yours to explore. Take a hike up to the ruins of Fort Rodney and see the strategic viewpoint used by the British to spy on French Martinique. Enjoy the spectacular view of the sea you were just exploring. If you have time, step inside Jambe de Bois, a local restaurant named after the pirate who took that first small step on St. Lucia.
Just dive right in
There are good reasons SNUBA is popular all over the world. In 1989, Michael Stafford designed it to be fun and easy to use. All your gear floats on the surface, which allows you to move freely. It requires no prior experience, and the tow line keeps you from going deeper than 20 feet, so you feel safe even as you're going on your adventure.
