Comments Excellent boats with very easy entry. No large crowds because boats only hold 6. Diving times are flexible and the staff is very competent and friendly. Fredriksted pier is a must for any macro diver. Both day and night proved great for macro life. Girlfriend is a newer diver and the set up on the boat and at the shop was perfect for new divers and people prone to sea-sickness, as they get to the sites and in the water quickly. I do believe the USVI needs to impose regulations on fishing as it seems that alot of the larger fish are being netted and the reefs do not have as many larger fish as other carribean destinations. However, if you a looking for a nice underwater adventure with many things to do topside and a great choice of restaraunts, I would recommend this destination.
