UW Photo Comments They picked up divers at the Frigate Bay hotel at no additional charge, and cruise ship passengers were escorted over to the marina (within walking distance) by dive leader carrying a large dive flag for easy identification. The boat is very roomy, has large deck as well as closed in area, dry storage area, and on-board bathroom. Passengers are told fresh water is provided, as well as de-fog, rinse buckets, and all gear including wetsuits available on board for only $10 more (for all gear). Extremely good dive briefings, laid back atmosphere without regimentation or crowding, (which I hate). 3' safety stop at 15' for all dives to ensure extra safety. (closest chamber is in St. Eustatia, 1 hr. boat ride away). Great dive packages, very experienced crew, "touchless diving", and offered a fresh wet-nap (pull-up) which was very refreshing to wipe face after dive, as well as a spritz of wintergreen spray on regulator which was fabulously refreshing when putting regulator in mouth. (Loved that!)

Kenneth's Dive Center has been in operation for 40+ years, and knows the areas to dive around St. Kitts. Would highly recommend.
