ST. KITTS                                         British Leeward Islands
St. Kitts was discovered by Christopher Columbus in 1493. The island became
an Associated Statehood with England in 1960 and achieved independence
in 1983. Topside attraction on the island include Brimstone Hill, an old
fort built in the late 1600's. The fortress was the site of a battle between
the French and English in 1782. The view from Brimstone Hill Fort is, to
say the least, spectacular.
Diving on St. Kitts should be fascinating for divers of all experience levels.
The best dive sites are located a mile or so off shore where clear water, big
fish, and beautiful coral abound.

CHRISTINA
The Christina was a ferry boat that sank on August l, 1970. According to
Kenneth Samuel, owner of a local dive shop, the wreck is now sitting on
top of a reef in 80 feet of water. This site offers good to excellent visibility
and an exciting assortment of marine life.
 

LA'AMIGO
The wreck of the La' Amigo is located one mile west of the Taleta wreck.
This vessel was a ferry similar to the Christina. She was sunk intentionally
in the fall of 1988 as a dive site and is now resting on a coral sea bed in 60
feet of water.
 

RIVER TOIRE
The River Toire was sunk in the late 1970's. She is a huge vessel, approximately
150 feet long by 60 feet wide, and is now sitting on a clean sand bottom.
Her mid section is still intact, but her aft port side has given into the elements
of time and collapsed.
This wreck is completely covered with sea life. Everything from schooling
bait fish to larger predators and crustaceans make this vessel a delight to
explore.
 

TALETA
The Taleta was a cargo ship approximately 130 feet long by 50 feet wide
that had been left anchored in the harbor, abandoned. One morning in

1986 at about 6:00 AM, she slipped beneath the waves just a quarter mile
off Basseterre. This steel vessel is now resting intact in 60 feet of water and
is surrounded by a beautiful coral reef. Visibility on this site ranges from
50 to 100 feet but can be a bit on the cloudy side. There is usually a mild
current.
