Default To Dive or Not to Dive??

We will be on a cruise with 5 stops. The last stop is St Croix. Is it a good dive spot? We are more into reefs than wrecks. Can someone suggest a good operator?

Yes diving is great on St. Croix. If you want a wall dive use Cane Bay Dive Shop. If you want a dive out of Christiansted there is SCUBA and Dive Experience. If you don't want to venture that far there is Anchor Dive out of Salt River. All of these operators are PADI and
excellent!

Default Re: Scuba

Just a reminder:
If St. Croix is your last stop and you fly back the next day a good conservative rule is to ensure that you have no residual nitrogen in your body before flying. Following the NAUI dive tables, you should be in letter group A or less (which can take over 9 hours). A safe suggestion is to pass a full 24 hours after your last scuba dive before flying.
