Comments "Tommy" of Frogs was utterly responsive during our internet connections prior to and after booking the dives, He picked us up at the dock in their fast boat and we had a nice thirty minute ride to the first site, The wreck of the Koyo Maru. The Koyo Maru is a 265 foot Japanese pipelayer intentionally sunk. This is a great wreck dive and comparable to any (better than some) wrecks in the Caribbean. It sits erect with open holds and many opportunities for safe penetration. The second dive was at "Roseman's Trench" and as per usual with any site having a specific name, there wasn't a trnch in sight. Nonetheless, the coral was fairly nice but suffered from a lack of fish life. The current on both these dives was E-ticket, mask ripping strong (especially the wreck). Frogs has nice T-shirts and are very accomodating. St Lucia may not be a dream dive location but the country is beautiful, the folks freindly, and the diving has enough variety to make a couple of dips well worth it. Frogs is a good bet.
