Hurricane Tomas Aftermath

Hi Everyone,
As some or most of you must have heard, St lucia was hit severely by hurricane Tomas on October 31st. Luckily Powl’s life and house was spared, some of his trees fell though, but most important: his little fishing boat was lost to the storm. So anyone willing to help, please use the donate option on this website ! A Big thank you to you, every little bit helps, getting Powl back on his afloat.

Last Party at Terry’s cottages.

All this was caught by Powell that same day. Talk about fresh sea food, it doesn’t come any fresher……..

Hello visitor!

Vieux Fort St Lucia

Welcome to Powl the Hobbits skin- and freediving website !

The idea behind and purpose of this website and related activities:

– To attract more visitors (and friends, not tourists) to St Lucia.
– Infrastructure and knowledge to provide out of the ordinary holiday experience is available but mostly unused.
– Networking possibilities having increased greatly through on-line communications and the Internet on the whole, it seems the obvious place to start 😉
– Having visitors meet St Lucian life from within; stay with the people (not in hotels), eat their food, drink their rum.
– Provide local activities with locals as; free- or skin diving, deep sea fishing, shelter building, outside cooking & bbq, learning about local flora & fauna and local usage and properties (herbalism), making bowls out of calabash and other utensils from natural materials.


We are working hard to add relevant content to this website. Browse around the pages to look what we’ve added sofar, more to come, so come back soon. Thanks for your patience !
