“Great dive spot, especially for beginners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2008

This is a great spot to dive if you are visiting St. Kitts. It is a good spot for beginners because the maximum depth is only 40 feet, but it is also a good spot for more advanced divers because the River Taw wreck is fun to explore. If you get bored with the ship, you can also head over to the sunken van and sunken bulldozer nearby. We always see interesting sea life there (baracuda, eels, lobster, etc), and the fish will swarm around you because they are used to being fed by the different dive operations.
We always go with Vajai, who works at Kenneth's Dive Shop on Bay Road, and we highly recommend him!

“First time to remember..........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2001

This was my first ever scuba dive (apart from an hours training in the local swimming pool). My instructer, Kent, from Bird Rock in Basseterre was absolutely brilliant. We borrowed his under water camera & snapped a whole spool off in 40 mins.
When we went down, the first thing Kent took us to was the stern. Lying next to this was a Chevrolet Mini Bus / Van. It looked like it was burnt out, but over 20 years down there the salt had eaten everything away. The bonnet (or hood to Kent) was open, displaying the engine. Beautiful fish swimming through the headlight holes & windows.
Then we came to a Bull-dozer / Caterpillar which was quite near.
The close up photos of the divers only really turned out.

Definately worth a dive.
