Comments Derrick, Tim, Steve and Michelle at N2 the Blue are awesome. They pampered us all week! They handled all of our gear, all we had to do was slide into the BC and get in the water. Gear was rinsed and stored at their shop and transported to the boat for us the next morning. We were interested in diving the north shore of the island and they happily arranged for us to go with another dive shop one day (N2 the Blue only dives the west side). Bad weather prevented us from diving the north though, so they made space for us to dive with them at the last minute. Only 6 divers max on the boat. Divemaster Tim pays close attention to everyone but we are given the freedom to dive our own profiles and spread out a bit. Everyone had a wonderful attitude and I would highly recommend diving with these folks. Diving was not spectacular - partially due to stormy weather. Nice coral with lots of interesting topography. Fish life was not abundant but there were lots of small critters to be found. The Fredriksted pier dive is not to be missed! We dove from the end of the pier (either a giant stride with a 15 ft fall into the water or a slow climb down the ladder and have someone drop your gear to you). Starting from the end of the pier was well worth the effort - much to see!
