Get Hooked on Calabash Cove Resort & Spa

Enjoy some of the Caribbean's best fishing and aquatic activies

Saint Lucia is known for its beautiful and varied terrain, ranging from soaring volcanic peaks to lush rainforest to pristine beaches – all providing limitless recreational options. But its surrounding, stunningly blue waters promise equally enticing relaxation and adventure, and oceanfront Calabash Cove Resort & Spa is the perfect home base for your aquatic activities.

Late autumn marks the beginning of Saint Lucia’s prime fishing season, for example.   Its waters boast an impressive array of big game fish, such as marlin, sail fish, tuna, wahoo, dorado and barracuda, for example. Nearby Rodney Bay hosts the annual Saint Lucia International Billfish Tournament, with competitive anglers typically reeling in 600-pound pound prizes. But the island is also ideal for those new to deep sea fishing. Calabash Cove’s concierge can arrange excellent guided excursions with no previous experience is necessary, as the expert crew will take care of all the equipment so that all you need to do is watch the line.
Calabash Cove also arranges a number of cruises that let you take in the beauty of the island and its undersea inhabitants. Whale and dolphin watching is one of the most emotional and exciting activities you can experience. Saint Lucia’s surrounding waters are home to many resident pods as well as migratory ones, so there is a good chance of a sighting on nearly every trip. The most commonly spotted species are pilot whales, sperm whales, humpbacks, false orcas, hawksbill turtles and greenback turtles. With the use of the special equipment, you can even hear the whales and dolphins communicating with each other in a series of clicks, screams, squeals, clacks, grunts, howls and, in the case of the humpback, melodic wailing.
For those who prefer to immerse themselves – literally – in Saint Lucia’s seascape can enjoy some of the best dive sites in the Caribbean, if not the world. Calabash Cove offers amazing snorkeling and scuba trips.  Pick up is right from Calabash Cove’s beach, and all equipment is provided.  Explore remarkable reef ecosystems that host a profusion of unique tropical marine life in shallow, calm and clear waters.
When it’s time to return to land and relax at the resort, the visual feast continues, with sweeping, ocean views from virtually every vantage point. Whether gazing out from our beautifully appointed, luxurious accommodations, our oversized, infinity-edge pool and swim-up bar, our secluded beach, or our open air lobby and Windsong Restaurant – you can admire endless shades of sparkling sapphire framed by Calabash Cove’s extensively landscaped tropical gardens.
