LESLEEN M SHIPWRECK
The Lesleen M, a 165-foot freighter, Wreck of a cargo vessel was sunk by the Department of Fisheries in 1986 to provide an artificial reef. Sits upright on a sandy bottom near Anse Cochon on the west coast, just south of Marigot Bay.at a maximum depth of 65 ft/20 m. Divers can tour the ship in its entirety. The 167 ft./51 m long wreck offers open access to the surface and is inhabited by many types of marine life including lobster, moray eels and reef fish.
At the point of Anse Chastanet, a plateau named Fairy Land slopes gently from 40-200ft. This area is on a major headland and is sometimes subject to strong currents which keep the coral and sponges very clean so that their vibrant colors are visible. Turtles are often seen on this dive and are usually quite friendly. This site is ideal for underwater photography.
Voted one of the "10 Best Dive Sites" by Caribbean Travel & Life, The Pinnacles are described by the magazine as "four coral and gorgonian-encrusted seamounts that rise tantalizingly up from the ocean depths". These four spectacular volcanic peaks rise up from the depths to within a few feet of the surface. The peaks are encrusted with Black and Orange Gorgonians and are home to Trumpet and Filefishes as well as larger species such as Grouper, Jack and Snapper. Seahorses are also seen here.
Located at the base of the 2438 ft/750 m Gros Piton, which towers above you, the Coral Gardens offer breathtaking scenery above and below the water, where numerous five-finger corals and lots of juvenile reef fish runs from a depth on this site ranges from 15 ft/5 m to 90 ft/27 m.
