UW Photo Comments Cane Bay has a small shop on the north shore of St. Croix. Most of their diving is either on a small (about six man) rubber boat or shore dives off that north shore. Although we did two dives off a larger boat (about 14 man) on the west coast. Boats are well equipped, clean and stable. Crew/divers very knowledgeable.

Comments On my first dive with Cane Bay, north shore (North Star & Pavillions) it was a boat captain, dive master and me - great! On later dives, more divers joined us, but even on the large boat we only had a a dive master and seven divers. Lot's of room. Great service! Very helpful at all times.
On of our shore dives, off north shore, water was very choppy w/surge. Some what hard to enter.
Over all, I was very happy with the operation and my seven (7) dives with them.
