Evaluation

*Average:    3.87
I have dived St Croix in 2007 & 2008 in spring. North Star and twins Palms are side by side. Great dive. Long swim. Twin palms (across from Willie's Wish) is easier entry as there is some sand and flat coral surface. North Star is very rocky. There are 2 dilapidated house farther down next to a dirt road that goes to the beach. You can enter there also, go down and head east & also reach north star and still make it back to where you came in. Warning: your rental car will be probably be broken into & contents stolen. There is a rash of car break-ins along the north shore. They wait for divers to go in and then get into your car. Stash your belongings in the brush. There is also great diving directly behind the Carambola Resort. Far west end of the resort beach is all sand & very easy entry. Go out to buoy & head west. Current is no problem below 40 feet on north shore. The St Croix reef is very healthy. Lots of life. Several Turtles. A medium size sting ray will allow you to touch it.
