The St Thomas Diving Club was extremely accomodating from check in to the
boat dive. A friendly, skilled crew was a pleasure to dive with . 
The boat captain leaves it up to the divers and the weather conditions for
the daily site preferences . Organization and safety is key : You don't
touch your gear once you are on the boat. They set up the tanks, change the
tanks and help you up the ladder. Water,tea and fresh oranges are on board.

St Thomas Diving Club dives a 2 tank every day at 8:30-12:00 and another 2
tank from 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm .If their are enough people, they will also
conduct night dives. 
 Their rental equipment was in good shape and their are 2 restaurants:
Iggies and Lobster Grill that serve good food. 
Thanks you Andre, Pam , Danni , Kristen , Sean and Johnny for great diving
and a fun time. They even returned some divers directly to the cruise ship
dock after the morning 2 tank. Talk about great service !
