We had our rented scuba gear delivered to the pier by Cane Bay scuba shop, which made the dive so much more convenient. We saw a few sea horses and turtles and some of the exotic fish that the pier is also noted for.

Our last night in St. Croix, we stayed on the Beach, close to this pier, and in the morning watched a huge Cruise Ship pull in and tie up. What a sight!

The pier diving at Frederiksted pier was amazing. We did a day night and a night dive. I saw turtles and Octopus. The sunset was unbelieveable.

Easy to walk around. Great view. A cruise ship was in port so it was probably busier than normal but still not overly crowded. I enjoyed looking at the vendor tents set up....

Walked all the way down the pier, awesome views. Unable to access when cruise ship docked. Saw people diving off into water below and a lot of snorkelers.

The pier is long enough for giant cruise ships. That means that if you walk out to its end and turn bac, your view of Frederiksted and the shore and the surrounding hills is the next best thing to an airplane. Absolutely worth the walk. Numerous Scuba divers so have to conclude they enjoy the underwater benefits of the pier... More

Did a day and then a night dive here. One of the best diving spots to be had! The growth and amount of critters that live around the pilings are amazing and the night dive with all the colors and octopus, eels, lobster, crabs and everything else that was around make this a "must dive" location!!!

The pier itself is a very long cruise ship pier but the real attraction is under the pier at night. If you are a SCUBA diver you have to do this dive. N2 the Blue dive shop is near the pier and they do a great job taking you below to see a variety of sea life. We saw seahorses,... More
