St Croix SCUBA

St Croix Ultimate Bluewater Adventures (see the pun on SCUBA?), operated by Ed and Molly Buckley, has been called 'the friendliest dive shop on earth' - and offers a fantastic opportunity to anyone who wishes to become a fully-certified diver while on holiday in the Virgin Islands. While experienced divers will find their every need catered for (try the night dives!), the real beauty of the Buckley's operation is the ease with which complete novices - under the expert guidance of highly-qualified dive staff - can obtain their PADI Open Water Diver certification. Over and above experiencing the beautiful underwater sights of the Caribbean Sea, thanks to St Croix Ultimate Bluewater Adventures, visitors to the island will also leave with a skill that they'll cherish for the rest of their lives.
