Comments This was my sixth trip to St. Croix and my third with Cane Bay Divers. My friend and I specifically asked for dives along the wall in front of the dive shop. Instead, on the first day we were taken to Fredericksted to a dive on some steel girders and then to two small wrecks. We again insisted that we wanted to dive the wall in front of the dive shop and were promissed that. However, on the following morning we were taken to Salt River Canyon, a far cry and distance from the wall we were counting on. Their deception speaks very poorly of what used to be a very pleasant operation.
