The largest of the three major U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Croix is rich in history, culture, and natural beauty, making it the perfect choice for a romantic getaway, family vacation, or a breathtaking scuba diving trip.

The “Big” Island of St. Croix offers many land and sea attractions easily accessible by car, cab, tour bus, or boat. The delightful town of Christiansted, with its 18th century Danish-style architecture, is just one and a half miles from Sugar Beach. Tons of shops for all your shopping needs! 

The Island of St Croix is entirely surrounded by the tranquil waters of the Caribbean Sea. With an average water temperature of 82°F and visibility ranging from 60-100 feet, St. Croix attracts scuba divers and water enthusiasts from around the world. For both divers and snorkelers alike, Buck Island Reef is an Underwater National Monument known for its abundance and variety of marine life.

Entirely surrounded by reef, visitors can snorkel or scuba dive through the amazingly clear waters viewing the colorful coral. Please Visit Dive Experience at or N2TheBlue at for all your Diving Needs.
