Scuba diving in Rodney Bay

Rodney Bay is a large bay on St. Lucia located along the northwestern coast of the island. Hewanorra International Airport is located in 70 km from it. Rodney Bay is named after the British naval officer George Brydges Rodney. At Rodney Bay, people can climb aboard the brig Unicorn, which was used in the film Pirates of the Caribbean, and see the west side of the island by sea from her decks. Rodney Bay has a plentiful selection of excellent restaurants and bars catering to all tastes, from international cuisine to spicy local Creole dishes. The Rodney Bay Marina is located at the east end of the lagoon. There is also Beauséjour Stadium, a cricket ground. The dive sites surrounding Rodney Bay are known for their unique geological features, formed by the same volcanic activity that created the island. There is a small number of interesting dive sites in the area. The best-known dive site is Barrel of Beef (also known as La Roche or the Rock). It is located just east of a small rock island, which is slightly southwest of Rodney Bay. The average depth is 12m/39ft, and the maximum depth is 15m/49ft. This dive has underwater trenches and valleys where divers can encounter triggerfish, lots of lobsters, and great barracudas. This dive site is best suited for more advanced divers and is good for underwater photography. There is good visibility (10-30m/33-98ft) and low currents.
