St Croix Scuba Diving USVI
St Croix scuba diving is some of the best diving in the Caribbean, if not the world! It offers world-class dive sites, as well as a spectacular range of diving options sure to impress both the professional scuba divers and amateurs alike. Honestly, where else in the world can you do:
- wreck diving
- pier diving
- coral reef diving
- wall diving
and dive all this in the same day? Only in St Croix!
Villa Margarita is the ideal base to launch your scuba adventures. We’re perfectly located on the famous North Shore of St Croix island, home of the world-famous “The Wall” where only 300 yards from the beach it suddenly drops to 13,000 feet! Read here how one of the best dive sites is right off our shore!
Many scuba dive tours and dive boats operate nearby, either from Cane Bay (just 7 minutes away) or from our Salt River marina right next door (3 minutes away). Christiansted is a mere 15 minutes away, to access the dive boats operating from there, while Fredericksted is also only 20 minutes away, allowing access to diving and snorkeling at the spectacular Frederiksted Pier, wrecks and other sites.
Our regular guest divers also dive and snorkel right off our own coral beach and the one next door. We have an outdoor shower for rinsing gear and wall pegs for hanging equipment to dry.
We also provide powerful underwater scooters, free of course, to make your St Croix scuba diving or snorkeling experience simply unforgettable. These scooters are some of the most powerful available and provide hours of thrills cruising around St Croix’s best dive sites and reef snorkeling areas.
We also allow regular guests to store their scuba gear at our Villa, making travel so much easier! (actually, most airlines now don’t even let you travel with lithium-ion battery scooters at all).
And for the snorkeling crowd, we have lots of snorkel gear so guests can enjoy the pure beauty of snorkeling St Croix’s fabulous coral reefs with tropical fish and exotic marine life.
