Diving at the Salomon’s pool
– Martinique (0-40m)
From the Salomon Pool, you can let yourself be carried by the light currents and reach the Cap Salomon site, among others.
What is the Solomon’s Pool in Martinique?
Unlike the spots located near Morne Champagne which face it, the Salomon Pool site was born from the formation of another volcano.
This probably explains its turquoise blue colour, a characteristic “pool” blue.
The clearer rocks offer more transparency and even if only the bay of Grande Anse separates them, one has the impression of being on a completely different dive site, only a few minutes away by boat.
What do we see when we dive at the Solomon’s Pool?
Beware barracudas !!! But don’t worry… no danger for humans !
Solomon’s Pool is the best place to observe barracudas. But if you see them during a dive, be aware that they are adult barracudas. The juveniles prefer to stay hidden in the mangroves.
And when it comes to the adult size of a barracuda, it is impressive. It can measure up to 1.90 metres and weigh up to 40 kilos!
The barracuda is a predator and it is always very interesting to observe it evolving on the reef. Immobile, on the lookout, and at the same time peaceful. One might as well say that it is impressive.
It is not uncommon for its curiosity to push it to follow the divers among the corals.
The stretch of sand at the foot of the drop off is the Captains’ favourite playground. They love to try and find live invertebrates such as sea urchins, molluscs or crustaceans. The skipper can be recognised by the first three spines on its backbone, which are very long. It is because they resemble the stripes of a captain that the fish is so named. And when you get too close, it changes colour and turns reddish brown to show its displeasure…
And before returning to the boat, we may take the opportunity to finish the dive in the rocky scree in which is embedded a wreck of … motorbike, original, no ?
