St. Marie

What used to be a little out-of-the-way dive site will soon be surrounded by development. Although steps are being taken to preserve nature in the area, ther will soon be great changes around this once remote site. On the way to St. Marie, you will notice signs for an upcoming housing development. At St. Marie the wall is close to the shore. At times there can be some choppy wave action and current, so monitor the current strength and direction carefully upon entry. The reef is healthy; look for parrotfish, pufferfish, trumpetfish, and barracuda, sea turtles and numerous small reef fish around the coral heads. Larger deep-water fish can often be spotted here.
