Just steps away from the resort, Cap Maison resort guests can walk right off Smuggler’s Cove beach to some of the best family-friendly snorkeling in Saint Lucia. The best part? If you are staying at Cap Maison, a variety of water sports, including snorkeling, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and bodyboarding, are free to enjoy. Simply grab your mask, fins and a snorkel from our friendly beach staff and take to the water to explore some of Saint Lucia’s magical underwater wildlife swimming along the nearby reef.


Snorkeling at Cap Maison is some of the best in St. Lucia. Clear, blue water and an ice cold cocktail is always just a few feet away at The Naked Fisherman – one of USA Today’s top 10 beach bars in the Caribbean. Get a sneak peek at what you might encounter under the sea in our full snorkeling video from a recent Facebook LIVE broadcast.

From colorful coral reefs to schools of flocking fish and even a sea turtle or two, you don’t have to swim very far from land to catch a glimpse of a variety of sea life. The water is extremely tranquil and easy to navigate for most swimmers, and we supply life vests for guest use as well.

The safe, secluded beach makes it easy for those guests looking to stay out of the water (and potentially enjoy a cocktail or lunch at The Naked Fisherman) stay near their friends and family as they discover undersea wonders. (Tip: Ask for our fish identification cards at the Naked Fisherman bar to see how many different species you can spot!)
