Excellent dives run by experienced staff. There are never too many divers which makes the dives more about experiencing life under water than about avoiding other divers. The excursions are well organised and cater for a range of capabilities.

Everyone involved with scuba diving was simply great. Captain John’s entire crew was fantastic. Always a helpful crew both in and out of the water. The guides were great at finding exactly the attractions we wanted to see. The instructors were great at teaching and helping us advance to the next level. Everyone learned our names faster than I could... More

Great sailing, diving and snorkeling. We owned a Beneteau 50 with a lease back to Moorings. This is our favorite sailing of anywhere we have ever been. Sandals St Lucia offers all inclusive scuba diving. Couples only to stay in **** resort. Sundays they offer a checkout dive for those needing it. Also night diving and lessons.

We spent Christmas at Halcyon. First time at St Lucia second Christmas at Sandals. In general the island is amazing and beautiful. Many activities off the resort. Unfortunately very little on this resort. We spent last Christmas at Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica. The resort is far superior but no activities away from the resort at all. A combination of both...

The dive team go out of their way to accomodate their divers, they do all the work we just turned up and dived, we felt very safe and well looked after, safety is paramount and the boat procedures excellent. Thank you all for some great diving and seahorses to boot.

We really liked the staff -- they did a great job of making the diving happen, and were very accommodating within the bounds set by Sandals Corporate. That said, those bounds are overly restrictive. Travelling with my own dive computer, I expect to be able to dive my air/no-deco time... or at least somewhat close. 60' for 30 minute dive... More
