What to see

From tiny seahorses hiding out in the sea grass to pods of dolphins making waves in the deep, there are tons of dive sites to explore on Saint Croix. You can see snappers and colorful reef fish carousing near coral heads, and vibrant parrotfish crunching away on the coral. Bright blue tang frequent the sites, as well as many other fantastic creatures. Look in crevices for spiny lobster, as much of a treat to watch as they are to eat.

Three species of sea turtle (hawksbill, leatherback, and green) nest on the island, so check and see if the young ones are hatching for the show of a lifetime.
