This was our first trip to St. Thomas.  Blue Island Divers is a smaller
operation with personalized service.  There were never more than 10 divers
on a boat and for most of the trips, there were only 5 or 6.  We saw many
other dive operations' boats with what looked like 20 or more divers on
them.  Blue Island picked us up at the dock at the Marriott at Frenchman's
Bay and were extremely accomodating, as well as respectful and mindful of
the various levels of experience in the boat.  The wreck sites were the
most interesting and there are plenty of them in St. Thomas.  I would
highly recommend this dive operation and locale, especially if folks are
looking for an easy trip and no-hassle "American" experience.
