The concierge at our hotel (Marriott Frenchman's Reef) recommended Blue Island Divers, and how lucky we were! Captain Kilian was very helpful in planning our trips- I'm a longtime diver and my husband was finally getting certified after years of nudging. Mike was a bit nervous for his first open water dives, but dive master Gene really put him at ease as he took him through his skills in the water and on the boat- nice for me to listen in and brush-up after a year's break between dives! This was a well-maintained boat, and after being on some big vessels with staff trying to keep track of 15+ divers, it was a relief to have a more intimate group- the level of personal attention was very high. We had super calm waters for our trip to the Navy Barges (TERRIFIC wreck dive!), I forget the name of the other site but the coral canyons were lovely and dive leader Pauly had eagle eyes- he spotted nearly invisible sand-covered rays from way off. Highly recommend Blue Island- and if you're on St. John, Cruz Bay Watersports offers the same great experience.
