St. Croix is the largest member of the USVI, is Danish-influenced, and also identified as one of the best places for scuba diving in the Caribbean. St. Croix gives scuba enthusiasts various diving options including wall dives, beach dives, wreck dives, reef dives, and night dives.
Scuba divers in St. Croix enjoy swimming through the marine trails and coral canyons at Cane Bay, Davis Bay and Salt River.
This location is one of the top-rated diving sites in the Caribbean; Cane Bay truly has something for everyone to enjoy. It’s easily less than 100 yds from shore, though the bay opening depth is only 30-40 ft, you can get as deep as 3,200 feet! Cane Bay is a beautiful coral garden alive and filled with coral of all kinds. It’s full of unique tropical fish, exotic marine life, and nineteenth-century anchors. Easily making this place a diver’s dream. Some will fall in love with this area so much that they’ll want to recreate it for them to feel that experience all over again, this may mean having their own tropical fish in an at-home aquarium where they can use wave makers for reef tanks, add in different sea plants, etc. so that it looks like a divers dream.
Salt River is an attractive place for you to dive right off the boat into depths of 30-100 ft. This site is a great place to stop by after exploring Cane Bay. Salt River will remind you of an underwater Grand Canyon, which also includes several swim-throughs you can navigate. You can find turtles, dolphins, and sharks swimming around this site.
Another great place to dive off your floating villa is at Davis Bay and it’s only an 8 minute ride from Cane Bay! It has depths of 40-100 ft and one-of-a-kind marine canyons that lead to an incredible sheer vertical wall. You’ll have the chance to see plenty of rays and turtles around along with numerous colorful tropical fish.
