Diving in Saint Kitts & Nevis

Rolling green hills press themselves against the sea, making a pretty line of white sand in between. St. Kitts and Nevis are picturesque and relaxing, the ideal place for a Caribbean getaway.

Diving in Saint Kitts & Nevis

Quick facts

St. Kitts has some awesome wreck dives. Most notable is the M.V. River Taw. This dive is unforgettable, where Divemasters are allowed to feed the fish, bringing in some massive creatures. The huge freighter is broken into two pieces, and you can see deep inside the hull.

If you visit the M. V. Corinthian you get the best of both worlds. Known as the Tug, this vessel lies near a reef, so you can see a little bit of everything.

Coconut Shallows is a piece of Coconut Tree Reef, an exceptional dive with plenty of marine life to see. You can find moray eels, wrasse, and even turtles.

Between St. Kitts and Nevis you can find Monkey Shoals, a gorgeous coral atoll with a whole square mile of gorgeous reef and shallows to discover.

Known also as the Federation of Saint Christopher and Nevis, this duo is found in the West Indies, in the heart of the Caribbean. The two islands are only about 2 miles (3 kilometers) apart, separated by a stretch of waters referred to as the Narrows.

St. Kitts was the one of the first islands to be colonized by Europeans, but indigenous people lived on the islands around 5,000 years before settlers arrived. Today, the country is a melting pot. People of native, European, African, and South Asian descent can all be found living together on the island.

In 1998, Hurricane Georges tore through the Caribbean, causing around $458,000,000 worth of damage on the islands. The two isles are still rebuilding from this heavy blow.
