Diving in Martinique

Quick facts

Step into the waters, leaving the swaying palm fringed beaches behind you. There is an abundance of diving to be done during your time in Martinique. The best time to dive is December to May, though diving is available year round in this tropical locale. February through April is the cyclonic season, so be sure to check the weather before heading out.

The legendary Rocher du Diamant (Diamond Rock) is found to the south of the island, and is by far the most popular dive to be had. There are mysterious formations to explore, from thrilling caves to impressive arches.

Another excellent dive site is Anses d’Arlet (Arlet’s Coves). The warm, shallow water is teeming with marine life, and underwater photographers will be blown away by the variety of colors and textures. The coves truly seem to be straight out of a fairy tale.

What to see

Unbelievable tropical fish busy themselves around the reefs. From angelfish to gobies, you can see it all while exploring the healthy coral reefs. You may even run across large barracudas as they seek out small, fleeing fish.

Dolphins frolic in deeper water, and there are more varieties of shark than you can shake a fin at. An unforgettable dive buddy is the marvelous Cassiopeia jellyfish, their purple tentacles reaching skyward.
