Anse Christophe

At Ilet Christophe, also known as Hermitage, divers can explore a captivating dive spot located outside of the National Park and situated in the bay of Bouillante, Guadeloupe. Unlike the more popular dive centers in Malendure, this site offers a tranquil and less crowded experience. Divers here have the opportunity to encounter a diverse array of marine species that inhabit the Caribbean Sea.

The dive begins in the 6 meters zone and gradually descends to a maximum depth of 22 meters. Throughout the dive, divers can marvel at an abundance of fascinating marine life, including various species of lobsters such as royal and Brazilian, as well as mesmerizing green morays, diodons, and French angelfish.

One notable feature of Ilet Christophe is a large flat rock that acts as a central point of exploration during the 60-minute dive. Beyond this rock, divers have the option to venture further and reach another stone, leading to a descent of up to 35 meters. For those seeking even greater depths, a drop-off is available, allowing for a deep dive before returning safely along the initial flat rock towards the anchorage.

The dive concludes in a vast shallow mud area, characterized by its unique ecosystem. Alternatively, if fortunate with favorable weather conditions, divers may witness the radiant hues of the Caribbean come to life as sunlight penetrates the water.

With excellent visibility of up to 18 meters, Ilet Christophe offers a rewarding and accessible diving experience suitable for divers of varying skill levels, from beginners to advanced. Situated in Bouillante, Basse-Terre, Guadeloupe, 97125, France, this remarkable dive site provides an unforgettable underwater adventure in the heart of the Caribbean.
