Scuba Saint Lucia at Anse Chastanet Resort in Soufrière, St. Lucia has become a SeaLife Underwater Photography Teaching and Rental Center.
Nestled in the hillside next to the majestic twin Pitons lies one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful and diverse diving resorts. Scuba Saint Lucia, a part of the Anse Chastanet resort, was established in 1981 and is a PADI 5 Star Dive Resort, offering comprehensive facilities for divers of all levels.
SeaLife recently released its new Micro 2.0 camera, the second generation of permanently sealed cameras that feature a new Sony 16mp CMOS sensor and other features that make underwater imaging easy and enjoyable with impressive high resolution results.
Scuba Saint Lucia offers rentals of the new cameras and all the user needs to do is book a dive and complete a brief orientation and safety check. The rental SeaLife Micro 2.0 camera features will be demonstrated by a staff member who will point out underwater imaging basics, offer assistance and imaging tips.
After the dive, the staff will assist in transferring the camera’s images and video to a cloud-based storage. The diver will receive an emailed link to his or her images. The full range of SeaLife products are available for purchase at the Scuba Saint Lucia retail store next to the dive operation.
Scuba Saint Lucia operates with three dive boats: Miss Ina, Miss Bertha and Jenny-Marie. The dive boats are all equipped with fresh drinking water, full safety equipment, first aid kits and a DAN Oxygen unit.
The Anse Chastanet reef starts just 10 yards beyond the water's edge. The reef's remarkable ecosystem offers an amazing profusion of unusual tropical marine life in 20 to 140 feet of calm, clear water.
Anse Chastanet’s reef, which is home to more than 150 different species of fish, makes for an amazing dive, day or night. Peacock flounders, octopus, needle fish and turtles can be seen in the shallow areas. A little deeper over dense coral growth, divers can see puffers, moray eels, parrot fish, lobsters and even sea horses. This unique dive site is suitable for divers of all abilities and especially ideal for macro photography.
