La Dive offers PADI, CMAS, CMAS, and ANMP dive training for beginners and those who are looking to advance their skills. The dives, meanwhile, are all two-tanks and depart at 8:30 a.m., returning at around 12:30 p.m. Those who do not have their own dive equipment can borrow some from the shop free of charge.

They have a large diving boat of 20 seats, on which they only take on board no more than around 10 divers. The diving mode is a two tank dive, that means that every diver has two cylinders and dives twice consequently and successively, but pauses between them and takes time to enjoy a cup of tea and some biscuits (no alcohol on board). Departure time is 8:30 a.m. and return time at the club at Terre de haut is 12:30 p.m. This arrangement allows the divers to dive twice a day, while enjoying the afternoon to discover the Saintes Islands.

What to Expect

The dive boat for this center is an aluminum barge powered by a Volvo 200 horsepower turbo which can hold up to 20 divers at once.
