This was simply the best dive operation we've used at any time.  The staff
members were friendly, professional, experienced, patient, and
knowledgeable.  They happily adjusted gear, handled problems, and
accommodated requests whenever possible.  The boat was comfortable, well
organized, and spacious.  We dove an eight-day nitrox/boat package and they
worked to provide us the best overall value and price on the island.  We
highly recommend this dive center.  We will return often and will make
Anchor our first choice for diving in St. Croix.

BTW, the Frederiksted Pier is a fabulous night dive.

Thanks to Wiz, Capt. Sparky (Brian), Scott, Sean, & Tom for eight days
of great diving!  Thanks also to Adrian for the kayak tour!
