Comments The Frederiksted Pier dives are a must if you go to St. Croix. We recommend you dive it mid-day from the boat and go back for a night shore dive as well. More fish there than we saw on the North coast and just a unique experience. The dive master Jenny was excellent at finding critters.

Dive boats have easy entrance with sitting front roll into the water. Water is much calmer than the North coast although there was a significant current for a wreck dive.

My wife likes close support when she dives. If you want that, just let Derrick know up front and he will make sure you're taken care of.

Villa Margarita is 45 minutes away from this dive shop. Still, it's a great place to stay. Snorkeled at Buck Island with 100-ft visibility and tons of fish. Worth the trip.

Great restaurants are The Mermaid at Buccaneer Hotel and Rowdy Joe's.
