N2 selected by friend who lives on St Croix. The staff was friendly and
very helpful. The dive master, Jeff, was excellent. One of our divers was a
recent certification and he spent time with her to allay her fears. We dove
the pier and chose to giant stride from the very end which required a
fairly long drop to the water. We could have chosen to enter closer to
shore which would have required a shorter fall. Jeff was very careful and
helpful when the divers expressed concern.

The dive itself was probably one of the top ten that I have done in over
750 dives. We saw a seahorse, multiple octopi, drums, eels, rays and many
other creatures. Our maximum depth was around 42 feet and our dive time was
an hour and a quarter. The area under the pier and the debris draws schools
of fish and other life. The area if vibrant with things to look at and
photograh. Jeff was very good at finding and pointing out things. At no
time did we get rushed and we moved at our own speed.

Exiting the water is a bit tricky but doable. Hurricane Earl washed all the
sand away and you have to scamble over the rocks to exit. Not difficult but

Overall this is an excellent dive and a don't miss if you are in the area.
