Diving around St'John,USVI with Cruz Bay Watersports is easy with varied
diving 
Just completed 10 days of fun diving with Cruz Bay Watersports around the
island of St.John in the US Virgin Islands. The water was extremely clear
with visability around 80-100 feet. The water temperature was 78 degrees.
The dive boat was very clean, the crew very helpful. I had to fight to set
up my own gear. The briefing at the sights gave insight on what to look for
as well as max time(45-50 mins) and depth(45-65 feet). The corals were
bleach free though schools of fish were a little scarce. Saw turtles on
most dives. Most dives took place on the northern keys( Grass, Mingo,
Lovango and Congo). One day did a run south to a sight called Maple Leaf
which was pristine. My MO was to do two tanks in the AM then drive out to
the northshore beaches with my wife who does not dive. These beaches are
beautiful, yet not crowded. Finished up the day at one of the fine local
restaurants which are expensive but very good. I especially liked Lime Inn.
Great food and especially good desserts.
