Diving in St. Kitts
The islands offer a wealth of relatively new, untouched dive sites. More than 400 ships sank here between 1493 and 1825, but only a dozen or so have been identified to date. The western (Caribbean) side of the island is well protected and visibility off the shores is usually in the 60 - 100 foot range. There are opportunities for divers of all levels of experience, and most dive locations are within an easy boat trip from the shore.
There are six dive operators on the islands. Regulators, pressure gauges, and BCs are readily available on the islands. The more exotic underwater props are generally unavailable for rental purposes, so divers are encouraged to bring along their own cameras, strobes, bottom timers, dive computers and gauges. Most dive operators are not equipped to accept credit cards. There is no chamber in St. Kitts or Nevis; however there are chambers nearby in Saba, Puerto Rico, and St. Croix.
