St. Kitts and Nevis
St. Kitts and Nevis is not a major dive destination, in part because it has never been specifically promoted in that way. There are a number of interesting sites, but they are spread around from the east of Nevis to the west end of St. Kitts. If you stay in one place you will not dive the full range of sites.
Some dive sites are shared between St. Kitts and Nevis (sites 10 to 17), others are too far for operators from the other island to reach. See the Operators section in the book for details of diving ranges.
St. Kitts and Nevis has a range of diving that includes shallow inshore sites and offshore shoals, some stretching several miles. Between St. Kitts and Nevis is a true coral reef, which allows divers to see many different species of coral.
St. Kitts and Nevis has a good range of marine life. There is a good chance of seeing turtles on many sites and areas with overhangs often house nurse sharks. On night dives, in particular, operators can almost guarantee you will see sleeping turtles see sample dive below.
See the book for 30 pages describing St.Kitts and Nevis 27 dive sites (including details of 3 wrecks) and 4 dive operators, plus lots of information about the island, après dive activities, diving rules and regulations and marine life.
