"The best night dive in the caribbean", is what the book said and of course if it's called the best, I have to see for myself. We got there and saw the crowd, maybe thirty others gearing up! Once in the water our guide, Linda from Carib Inn, was able to weave us through the pilings with as little contact with other groups as possible. Through the traffic her keen eye found a sea horse holding on to a piece of trash. An octopus was spotted but that was it for the rare sightings. As most people know the pier is famous for it's orange cup coral. Yes indeed, the coral is fabulous. The next time I go I will night dive the Salt Pier. You need permission but no crowds, no guide, and almost as much incrustation of sponges and cup coral as the Town Pier. Overall, a great dive for first timers, and to have in your log book but an unnecessary expense and the crowd is laughable.
