The macro photography is legendary and the variety of dives make the Virgin Islands, in a word, awesome. And, if turtles are your favorite, they seek many of the USVI beaches each summer to breed. The islands lie close enough to the equator so that twilight comes quickly with, almost always, a brilliant sunset. The Virgin Islands are part of the Antilles chain which forms a long curve from the Bahamas near Florida to Trinidad, off the coast of South America. The islands are between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, just east of Puerto Rico.Read More
Writing after 5 days of diving in St. Croix. We really enjoyed the Arawak Inn - small, private and quiet. We absolutely loved Cane Bay Dive Shop! Diving conditions weren't great, however, the people and shop made up for it!
This is our 2nd yr staying at Arawak Inn and diving w/Cane Bay. We love the homemade breakfasts that Lionel & Henry make, waffles, omelets, bacon & eggs and fresh fruit. The diving crew is awesome and St. Croix is just a beautiful place to be. One more thing center line car rental is the easiest business I think I've ever dealt with. This is one laid back island, WE love it!
