Typical carribean fish, corals, and sponges...but five wrecks on the West
end with plenty of growth and photo ops. The Fredrickstead pier was
stunning both day or night, two seahorses made the whole trip worth while.

This was our 3rd trip to St. Croix and 2nd one with N2Blue dive shop.
Derrick and Anna were both dive masters and boat captains so would
alternate every few days with our group. The six pack boat is never
crowded, Coast Guard only allows 6 divers, the captain and the dive master,
so always relaxed and no cattle car divers falling all over you.

They always had fruit and bottled water for surface interval, could reach
most dive sites in 5 to 15 minutes, and catered to their guests. 

While the West end dive sites are protected from the winter winds, the
North Shore has some of the best walls on the island. Cain Bay Wall is a
favorite and both walls of the Salt River, but on this trip the seas were
stirred up in Dec., so vis was really time to dive North Shore
is Feb to Aug.
