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!
