Jacques Cousteau Underwater Reserve
Guadeloupe Islands' most famous dive spot lies off the coast of Basse-Terre, surrounding the Pigeon Islands, and is part of the Guadeloupe National Parc’s protected marine assets. Named after Captain Cousteau, who pushed for the protection of this bio diverse marine site and filmed a documentary here, you can find the French explorer’s statue resting deep in these waters. Dive shops offering excursions to the Jacques Cousteau Marine Reserve are based along Plage de la Malendure, in the coastal community of Bouillante, just a ten-minute boat ride away. There are dive options whether you’re a beginner or advanced. Snorkeling is also ideal for newbies here, with shallow waters teeming with corals, turtles, and tropical fish.
