By Allan Michael Taylor

Renowned for its stunning beauty of sparkling blue waters and golden beaches lined with palms, St Lucia is the perfect place for water-sports-lovers. The hotels and resorts are fully fitted with all the updated sports-equipments which are effortlessly rented out to the visitors.

One cannot imagine the options and variety of water sports chances, here in St Lucia. Ranging from sailing to wind-surfing to skiing to diving-the endless adventure in this endless island leaves one yearning for more thrill, pleantry and venture.

Sailing in St Lucia Yachting; banana-boat; mini-sailing; parasailing; pedal and kayaking are the main sailing activities in the surroundings of the large hotels and vacation place in the various tourist centres such as Rodney Bay, Choc Bay and Marigot Bay. The cruises in these crystal clear waters ensure the most delightful sight-seeing of the native Dolphins and whales. With the shining Caribbean Sea on one side and the mysterious depths of Atlantic Ocean on the other, yachting here is a sailor's most admired dream. Yachts and sail boats can be chartered from the Rodney Bay marina and Marigot Bay to direct in the West Indies through the pure scenery of the Grenadine Islands. Parasailing is a more bold activity; being hooked on the back of a boat. One can't get a better and a complete picture of St Lucia's beautiful countryside.

Wind surfing in St Lucia Placed ideally between Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, St Lucia boosts of never-ending trade winds, wind surfing and kite surfing. Beginners will enjoy the wind power and thrill and incitement of being driven by the wind, more in the peaceful waters of the Caribbean. For a more thrilling experience, CAS en Bax or Vieux Fort are ideal spots for wind and kite surfing. Trainers are available to help beginners, to start with and professional, to better their ability.

Skiing in St Lucia Jet skiing and water skiing are available at most of the hotels and resorts. Water skiing is a favourite with the beginners who wish to spend more time in the Caribbean Sea. Jet skiing is an exceptional adventure of flying across the waves with the water splashing up in your face.

Diving in St Lucia Enjoying the marine life in all its glory and dazzle is not possible without having to dive in St Lucia's under water paradise. The island is located at the tip of an underwater volcano which cares for a big variety of Corals, Sponges and Reefs. Great care has been taken to maintain the marine life which is an irreplaceable advantage of our Eco-system.

Diving schools and centres give tuitions, trips, advisor and equipments for Scuba-diving or Snorkelling. The prestigious Soufriere Marine Management Area on the west coast is responsible for the conservation of St Lucia's coastal environments.

St Lucia is as hilly below as it is above, hence, embracing Nature's bounty in its lap. Scuba diving provides an opportunity to come face to face with the sea life breathing in St Lucia's womb. Angel fish, black beauties, golden spotted eels, seahorses, stingrays, nurse sharks, turtles and a variety of schooling fish are down there to welcome the mariner to their colourful and secret world.
