What people are saying about Castries

This was a great activity for anyone with some knowledge of scuba diving or being comfortable in the water. I am not certified in diving but my wife is. They put me through some instruction before going on a full dive with the option for a second dive after. The dive master stays with you and is constantly watching over you to make sure everything is ok. I felt totally comfortable in the water with the dive master as we went down to about 40 ft along the reef. The fish were beautiful and the reef was teaming with life. As with all reefs, there is signs of the reef dying due to the warm water temps but this one still has a lot of life! The food on the boat was made by the captains wife and was absolutely delicious. Chicken drumsticks, rice, mac and cheese, beans. This was a great tour and I would absolutely book with Dive Fair Helen again.

One of our favourite experiences in St Lucia! We’ve always wanted to get certified but ran out of time before our trip. We were SO happy we did. There is seriously nothing like getting to spend so much time under water. I struggled at the beginning and had a lot of anxiety going under water but the guides were super patient and kind. They gave us training before and in the water so had all the basics down. They provided an awesome meal on the boat and while waiting for the others to finish their dive we got to snorkel in the clear water. Such an awesome experience ! Highly recommend

Amazing trip across the mountains to the mud baths and waterfall. Finished with a lunch at the beach….Brent was a lovely guide, courteous and helpful 😊

Honestly, we really enjoyed this moment which will remain unforgettable for us. A real 50-minute dive for a baptism in an incredible place!!!

Well organized. You get great insights into and about the rainforest. I would definitely book transport next time.
