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.

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.
