We booked this dive excursion with Pro-Divers via the Internet, intending
to dive off a cruise ship.  The contact person was Margot MacLeod.  Her
husband Auston and she own the operation.  We emphasized that the family of
four were experienced divers and hoped to be taken to other than a thirty
foot sand bottom for thirty minutes.  They accomodated, asking us (a
collective us of a dozen divers) where we wanted to go (after picking us up
at the cruise ship dock).

We dove a non-descript reef on the first dive appropriately named (after
some prodding) "No Name Reef."  It was a basic Caribbean low
profile reef with modest fish life and some evidence of sand and algae on
the coral.  It was okay but pretty underwhelming for a start.  On the
second dive we went to the Wreck of the Talata and the Barge.  Now this was
meritorious and worthwhile.  The Talata was a 200 foot freighter that I
believe they said was sunk in a hurricane.  It is scattered over a 100
square yards of the ocean floor at about 80 feet.  The Barge is a second
wreck about a 100 meters away sitting on a sloping wall.  It's intact. 
Both wrecks featured huge Morays slithering around.  The air fills were 2
or 3 hundred pounds short of 3 thousand but teh boat was real nice to dive
from and remounting was easy and crew helpful.

Both Margot and Auston were extremely cordial and helpful.  Despite divers
of varying degress of proficiency, they made all feel welcome and
comfortable.  Once Auston saw you knew what you were doing, he let you
pretty much explore at will; just be back onboard with 500 PSI.  I'm not
sure St Kitts rates a full week of diving (maybe) but it certainly merits
an investment in a couple days and absolutely if you're coming off a cruise
ship.  Pro-Divers is also a good choice.
