Learn more about us

We have operated in St. Lucia since 1992 and have supported the local and international tourism industry from inception.

Dive Fair Helen: St. Lucia Undersea Adventures, is owned and operated by a St. Lucian environmentalist with over 15 years experience in marine research in his country. Some of his achievements include the establishment of the famous Lesleen M. Ship wreck, the formation of the policy document to regulate the sport diving sector in St. Lucia and the zoning of protected marine areas which resulted in the formation of the marine reserve and fishing priority areas of St. Lucia.

"We at Dive Fair Helen are extremely proud of our island especially our marine resource and place great emphasis on education and safety". The pride of our operation is our two custom built dive boats: Dive Fair Helen II (Denise, a 47 ft. Burpee) and Dive Fair Helen III (Samm, a 39 ft. Sea Hawk), both with on-board wash room and shower facilities, plenty of shade and ease of entry and exit, allowing for a highly personalized service.

We believe in maximizing the rewards to our client by offering the best possible price, flexible tour times and range of services in a simple one-stop shop facility - our dive facilities and environs are home for souvenirs shoppers, sun bathers, bar frequenter, river and coastal kayakers, nature trail hikers, scuba divers and snorkelers.

Anse La Raye Wall

This site is rich in coral and marine life. The shallow areas displays brightly colored fire coral, while in the deeper end there are in descent purple vase sponges, barrel sponges, and soft coral. There is a lot of fish on this dive - look out particularly for jacks, Bermuda chubs and spotted-drums. The Anse La Raye wall is an excellent example of the colorful reefs of St. Lucia and a good site for underwater photography. It is best dived at around 50 to 60 feet.
Virgin Point/Cove

This semicircular reef/wall is a richly diverse coral reef structure displaying both hard and soft corals. This reef starts off in 15 ft. with large colorful boulders which fringes the coastline and gravitates to patches of coral and eventually more defined structures of reef. The perfect setting for divers and snorkelers of all levels. Schools of snappers, grunts and Atlantic spade fish as well as turtles and barracudas are frequent residents of this reef especially at the 60' - 70' level.
Anse Cochon North & South Reef

There are only three dive sites on the west coast within the marine reserve areas that are ideal environments for resort and trainee open water diving. Two of these sites are in Anse Cochon (North and South reefs) and the other is the Anse Chastanet reef in Soufriere. The Anse Cochon - North and South Reefs are beach dives with coral and encrusted boulders that start in 5 ft. of water. The northern reef gradually descends to 40ft. where it merges with the Virgin Cove reef, where as the South Reef remains shallow to a maximum depth of 30 ft. The coral is more prolific on the northern side but both areas are rich in reef fish - spotted drums, goat fish, parrot fish, yellow snappers, grunts, damsel fish, chromis and wrasse.
Lesleen M. Wreck

A 165 foot freighter was sunk in October 1986 by the Department of Fisheries as part of a project to provide artificial reefs. It is covered with hard and soft corals, sponges and hydroids, and provides an ideal habitat for many juvenile fishes such as queen and french angel fish. Turtles and barracudas also frequent this wreck. The sandy bottom fringing the wreck is home to numerous schools of sand eels and divers should look out for our resident frog fishes, sea horses and black bar soldier fish.

The wreck sits on an even keel on a sandy bottom and it is possible to penetrate the hold and engine room. The deepest point of the wreck is in 65 ft. of water whilst the highest point is in 40ft. Depth. History - The previous owner of this vessel (affectionately known as "Pappy Mac") sort to change the name of his ship by selecting a letter from the names of his grandchildren resulting in the name "Lesleen". The letter "M" stands for the surname of the family (Mc Quilkin) - Three generations of family members (grandfather, father and son) all involved with the sea and presently deceased all of whom were buried at sea. The owner of Dive Fair Helen was commissioned many years ago to paint the new name on this vessel and was directly involved in the sinking of her. He has traveled on her in her hay days and is privilege to many of her hidden secrets. The Lesleen M is an easy dive, excellent for close-up and macro photography, a good night dive.
Daini Koyomaru Wreck

This Japanese dredger was sunk in the south end of Anse Cochon in September 1996 by the Department of Fisheries. Most of the interior was deliberately left intact, offering an endless source of exploration for advanced divers. The vessel is a 16,000 ton metal structure, 244 feet long and approximately 80 feet high. The maximum depth of this dive is 108 feet. Already the wreck is a habitat for a number of fish species including eels and barracudas, many of which accompanied the vessel on its journey from the southern end of the island.

The vessel was sunk in close proximity to an existing reef patch. The fact that the vessel landed on its side meant that a wall dive was created in conjunction with the wreck dive. It has been said that the position of the structure lends an aura of mystery to it. The Daini Koyomuru (Japanese for boat # 2) is quite a mouthful, but the site offers a challenging adventure for the experienced diver.

Are there dangerous creatures?

Barracuda and sting ray - on our dive sites it is possible to encounter barracudas or sting rays, fortunately these creatures pose no danger because of the clarity of our water (divers are never mistaken for prey).

The Scorpion fish (stone fish) - because of its camouflage ability to resemble coral, the scorpion fish may be described as the most dangerous fish on the reef. Not forgetting that our reefs are protected by law, this danger only exist for the curious diver interested in touching or breaking-off coral.

Fire coral, fire sponge, bristle worms, jelly fish, hyrods, sea ants, sea urchins - getting in contact with these organisms will result in itching and burning which usually dissipate within a couple of hours. To quicken recovery and soothe pain, Sting-Aids can be used.
