On the peaceful cote sous-le-vent (Leeward Coast, Basse Terre), the underwater Réserve Cousteau is the place you do not want to miss while visiting the Guadeloupe Islands! The famous underwater explorer Jacques Cousteau called the 1000 hectares around the Pigeon Islands, off the coast of Basse Terre,
one of the world’s top dive areas and encouraged its conservation since 1955. Visit this heavenly site aboard a glass-bottomed boat and see colorful marine life :
corals, tropical fishes, turtles and even humpback whales await in a 28°C water.
