Comments What an amazing set up they have.
You can stay on property in a full kitchen cottage or studio type or even at several resorts they work with (Arawak Inn or Divi).
You have amazing shore diving right there just a swim out - 3200 foot wall, nursery reefs, coral farms and much much more. They have a great boat that lives in the Salt River marina for dives on the north shore or head over to Fredericksted pier to catch the boat for wrecks and other great choices. The staff are friendly and eager to see that you have a great time.
Hungry after a dive but don't want to cook or drive - Eat at Cane Bay is simply amazing. A short drive away you have Off The Wall, Above the Cliff and Rowdy Joes. In town too many to count but Dashi ranks up top for us.
Best part is no passport needed! Best kept secret. Come explore.

UW Photo Comments From a shore diving perspective they need to work on a place to set up and tear down. On the boat - nice table and easy to rinse and enter/exit the water
