The undersea environs in the shallow snorkeling spots at Buck Island may not be what they once were, but that doesn’t mean the scuba offerings in and around St. Croix aren’t up to snuff.
More popular dive hot spots like Bonaire, the Caymans, the BVI’s, and The Bahamas may get most of the headlines, but only our home island of St. Croix can boast the largest living reef of any Caribbean island! The big draw for scuba pros in the know here is a wicked drop known simply as The Wall.
Located just off St. Croix’s northwestern shore, The Wall begins in 25-30 feet of water. No big deal, right? Well yes, until you realize that eventually the depths plunge to an incredible 3,200 feet!
In some areas, the drop is STRAIGHT DOWN, making The Wall one of the most uncommon dive experiences you can enjoy anywhere.
If you go and decide to brave The Wall (or any of the other amazing dive sites in St. Croix), you’ll want to check in with the folks at Cane Bay Dive Shop. As you can see in their latest promo video, they know how to show you a good time in St. Croix, whether you’re in or out of the water…
The video was shot and produced by ace photographer, Steve Simonsen of Turquoise Trail Films. Easily among the most acclaimed specialists in underwater photography today, Steve has been capturing the wonders of the undersea world for more than 25 years. A home base in St. John affords Steve lots of opportunities to hone his craft throughout the Virgin Islands, and elsewhere in the Caribbean.
