This was the best shore dive we did in St. Croix. The most wildlife with some bigger fish, lots of barracuda and black durgons, the best reef in excellent condition (fan coral, tube coral, sponges, etc). The entry can be difficult due to loose bowling ball sized coral boulders that are on the bottom with surf coming in on you - this makes walking out hazardous to ankles but it is worth the effort. Navigation is ideal - there is a pipe you can follow out and best of all you can follow in making night diving very easy (we found this the best night dive for someone unfamiliar with the terrain). It's a bit of a swim out 12-15 minutes. Check the current and swim into it along a sloping wall covered in coral, then drift/swim back until you cross the pipe and follow it in.
