Comments 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!
