For all of our activities we welcome you in Cote-sous-le-Vent, in the caribbean side of the Guadeloupe, « The island with beautiful waters ».
After falling in love with this friendly and genuine Basse-Terre, we layed down our fins at Plage Anse Caraïbes, Pointe-Noire, in 2010.
It was a love at first sight, how warm and clear the water is, the diversity and beauty of the Caribbean sea’s animals, fulfilled our expectations and most of all our wishes of ocean’s lovers.
It was the ideal place to share our passion of the sea.
After spending our last years in France building what free diving is near pools with the French Free Diving Team, it was time to come back, far away from sport performance, to the simple happiness of being in the water watching and trying to understand a wild nature who only shows herself to the ones who know how to love her.
Our quest for harmony with the sea is a long yet really pleasant journey, sharing a little bit of it with you gives it an extra reason to be : the beauty and passion are only worth it if shared ! This is the story of how AN-BA DLO LA was created.
By the way, what does “AN-BA DLO LA” stand for ?
It’s creole, naturally, we are living in Guadeloupe and respecting and promoting the culture of our welcoming land with a name that really comes from here seemed essential to us. It simply means “AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WATER”, underwater, yes !
The Caribbean sea is warm, calm and clear all year long and has a lot of things to show without any need to go deep : you will be amazed by the amount and diversity of the fishes that you can see from the surface and by the number of Green turtles living in the bay.
Free diving course are provided by Antoine MAESTRACCI, National Free Diving Instructor, founder of the first free diving school in Guadeloupe, but also former Captain of the French Team that got a Gold medal at the CMAS Games, which make him able to teach you in an appropriate way, no matter of your level or experience.
The one who like fishing or fish hunting have many ways to be happy at AN-BA DLO LA too.
You can go spare fishing all year long in the clear and warm seas of the Caribbean. They are full of fishes, hold a lot of diversity and you can come across (and catch) species that you could dream of :carangues, thazards, coryphènes, marlin…
