Diving Overview for St Kitts and Nevis
These two island nations are a perfect combination of mountains, beautiful beaches and rich history.
St Kitts is the the larger and more lively of the two. The Southeast Peninsula is thought to house the healthiest reefs. Sandy Point Bay is popular destination with good reefs, White House Bay is another popular reef spot good for diving and snorkelling. There are several wrecks including the River Taw (sank in 1985) that is now a living artificial reef.
Diving in Nevis is more low-key and the coral reefs are in better condition. Monkey Shoals near Oualie Beach has some densely covered reef with abundant tropical species to admire, Devil's Cave's on the West is an unusual site where you can explore underwater lava tunnels.
Marine life around these islands includes many varieties of corals, barracuda, rays, garden eels, nurse sharks, turtles and smaller fish species. New environmental initiatives are underway to help protect the reefs and prevent silty water run-off depositing on the reef so we can expect even greater marine biodiversity in the future!
Like most Caribbean destinations, you can dive here all year round, wet season (and hurricane season) is from July to November when air temperatures still average 27ËšC.
