** NEW at Voyages Aquanautes

A DESTINATION WELL CONCEALED IN THE CENTER OF THE CARIBBEAN...

We have found a destination, well concealed in the center of the Caribbean, which, we are convinced will make the happiness of those who seek a new destination, which contains a world of artifacts and wrecks to discover

Come and dive with us on St. Eustatius’ unexplored reefs, wrecks, pinnacles and walls. Submerge yourself in warm and clear water to experience diving in the most untouched island in the Caribbean.
Our tiny island is blessed with a generally pleasant dry and sunny climate. Light northeast trade winds bring the island a constant cool breeze.

You can enjoy cosy restaurants and bars in Oranjestad, St. Eustatius’ one and only town.

This is the place to unwind, read that book you always wanted to read and to dive the beautiful Statia waters.

What to expect

St Eustache, commonly called Statia, which just as Saba, Bonaire and Curaçao was part of the Netherlands Antilles, but the dissolution of the latter, Statia, like Bonaire and Saba, became a municipality of the Netherlands. It is an island to the typical atmosphere that won't crowd at the airport on arrival or other hand elsewhere.

Dive in St Eustache :

One of the peculiarities of Statia diving is to be a paradise for photographers. The abundance of life marine, the diversity of wildlife and its colors, falling sloping also colorful, and beautiful lava flows. From sumptuous wrecks covered by hard corals and soft corals and huge sponges are the shelter of moray eels, groupers and barracudas.

The volcanic origin of the island offers divers the landscapes of lava flows, covered by all kinds of coral reefs. You will encounter many turtles, seahorses, punctuated Knights but also the nurse sharks, sharks and reef-rays. Porcelain, skates stingrays and gorgons are also part of this little-known site for divers.

St Eustache is undoubtedly, the location of the Caribbean where you will find the most wrecks, you can also discover several anchors and cannons dating from the 18th century, multiple fish playground. Don't miss the wreck of Charles L. Brown, cast in July 2003 by 31 m depth. This former 100 m cable is now one of the largest shipwrecks of the Caribbean. Just as Saba, the dive sites are protected by a national park, there's no pollution, no excessive fishing. It is also a Mecca of the turtle nesting.

Whatever your expectations, Statia will satisfy you, dives to reefs, drop-offs and wrecks can diversify your dives. For those traveling with their children, only two sites lend themselves to their dive.
