Dive St. Kitts does a nice job.  Friendly staff. Great pre-dive orientation
on shore with map on white board showing both sites that were being dove
that day. All sites are less than five minutes from shore.  Did seven dives
(one night) over three days with Dive St. Kitts.  Depths ranged from 30ft
to 85ft.  Lots of interesting wreck sites (boats, cars, bulldozer, tires)
that attracted most of the fish we saw on the trip. Coral is not great with
low level of fish life. Saw a fair amount of juvenile fish but not many
adults. Decent amount of turtles and rays and lots of large lobsters. 
Night dive was fun, with plenty of turtles, lattice sea stars, stingrays,
and spiny sea urchins moving about.  Hotel is clean but outdated and in
need of repair. Toilets leaked, no fan in one room and shower heads that
sprayed all over the bathroom. Food was mediocre, but price wasn't.  For
same price at restaurants you could eat at the five star Marriot Resort.
