I was on a 10-day Princess Cruise in the Caribbean. I did a 2-tank dive at Shipwreck Cove to 70ft where the Cartanza Senora is on the bottom in 3 pieces (from hurricane Hugo). The water was 83 degrees and 100ft visibility. Three small reef sharks followed us around and there are concrete blocks on the bottom used by NASA during the Apollo years, to train astronauts. The wreck is full of fish and Barracuda hanging around. There is no current, so you can glide smoothly through the water and conserve air. If you visit St. Thomas, this is one of many good dives you will want to go to. The boat crew was fantastic and you should make sure to tip them well.

Rob at Hull Bay is who you want if you want BUGS. Very attentive, knowledgeable and just a cool guy to be around. Day or night, scuba or snorkel he'll get you covered.

We were in St Thomas in December 2017 and had the pleasure of having Web and Squid as our guides. Secret Harbour was amazing !!We were essentially the only ones there! We had a family of 8 and we all agreed it was the highlight of our trip !!!!! We had all kinds of skill levels and ages and they accommodated all of us! We saw all kinds of marine life and we wouldn't have seen half of it if it weren't for Squid and Web . They pointed out all kinds of things and taught us about each one!. Squid took picture of what we saw and of us and that was great! This experience was so much better than what the cruise ship had to offer. We also went to some other areas in St Thomas for beautiful views of the island. They picked us up at the dock and dropped us off. No driving for us to try and find anything. We had lunch at a cute little restaurant on the beach. We would definitely do this again! Thanks Web and Squid!!!!

People for-go the cruise excursions &!do this instead, you’ll be so glad you did!!!! Hakko took us on a tour of the island & snorkling today! It was incredible!!! We started with a snorkel trip at Coki Bay— Hakko bought some fish food & it was an incredible experience feeding & swimming with fish! We stopped at a couple scenic point to take pictures. And snorkel that one other spot where we saw sea turtle, squid and octopus!! Then he took us to an awesome lunch spot overlooking the port side of the island. Hakko was so much fun, felt like we were hanging out with a good friend. He was knowledgeable about the island as well!! He brings drinks & all the gear you’ll need!

—just some advice, make sure when you are meeting you clarify whether it’s ship time or local time!

—wear sunscreen, especially on your back. The sun doesn’t feel that hot but when you’re snorkeling face down you’ll get a ton of sun!!! We’re crispy!!!

We had so much fun with our guide Hakko today. We snorkeled Secret Harbour Beach for several hours. Saw all sorts of fish and coral. After we took a tour of the island before going to a great local restaurant called High Dive. High Dive was perfect! We got great views of our cruise ship and Magens Bay. This company was prompt to respond, reasonably priced and totally accommodating. Most importantly, FUN! I would recommend to anyone because it can be tailored to your interest and abilities.
