The Buccaneer Diving
The resort is close to St. Croix Blue Water Ultimate Adventures and Dive Experience scuba diving centers: both of which are located in Christiansted. There is also Cane Bay dive shop at Cane Bay. The south side of the island has all the wind and waves, so the dive sites are all on the sheltered north side. For an enormously long shore dive area that could take you multiple dives to see it all, we have to recommend a shore and/or boat dive at Cane Bay Wall,
which starts at 40ft and can descend to 3,200ft deep. So, another great shore dive is the Frederiksted Pier
, which is covered with corals, sponges, seahorses, butterfly fish, and lobster.
So, for boat dives, while staying at Renaissance Carambola Beach Resort & Spa, there's NorthStar, Rust Op Twist, Captain Morgan
(wall dive), Sea Mount, Davis Bay, Twin Palms,
. The Wrecks At Butler Bay
feature five separate wrecks. On the east end you might like Blue Chute, Sleeping Shark Hole,
and Little Cozumel
. There are almost 60 dive sites around the island and for some peculiar reason Gentle Winds
and Love Shack
seem to be more popular dive sites than Swirling Reef of Death
