“Great Dive Site!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

Cow and Calf are very popular dive sites for divers visiting St. Thomas or St. John. We dive them every time we are on Island! Excellent dive site for all ages and skills. Nice coral ledges and reefs with much sea life! Bring your camera!

“Swim throughs a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

One of the best dives we have had. Champagne cork was outstanding. Great coral and sea life. Water was fairly clear 50 plus feet visibility. I would do the same dive again.

“A most do dive for any visiting divers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Probably one of the most visited dive sites in the US Virgin Islands and for good reason. In a forty minute dive with a maximum death of forty feet you will have tunnels, swim throughs, caves, great corals, lots of fish and probably the most fun of any site. Don't miss this one, well worth it.
