Great Watch Spit / La Pointe de la Grande Vigie

 

North of Grande Terre, near the town of Anse Bertrand, some beautiful and unfrequented dive sites are accessible when the sea conditions are calm. The scenery is quite out-of-this-place since it looks like the French Brittany coast, and it's also unique underwater where you can drift by vertical cliffs and in between fallen rock beds.

 

Check out the 'Amedien Cave', an open mouth, large and shallow cave (accessible to beginners), or the long drifts by the Montagnier, Turtle or Watch Spits.

You should definitely give it a try at the 'Watch Coral Garden' or Le Jardin de la Vigie: tree-like gorgonian fans, staghorn corals, porites, sponges, turtles... and a just about all the tropical fish you could think of!

 

This is a double tank trip with a 1hr surface interval, during which you'll be served snacks, fruits and freshwater. Nice!
