We ventured out to cow and calf with Aqua Action on July 3. This was the second tank dive of our first ever ocean dive. We saw a shark and an abundance of coral and marine life. Absolutely incredible! A must see! There are some fun arches and swim-throughs that are great for intermediate divers.

My husband and I were staying on St. John and were delighted when our Low Key Watersports boat captain announced we would be heading over to this famous St. Thomas Caribbean dive site. Its shallow, max depth 50 feet. The rock formation and healthy reefs made this site a delight. We saw eels, lobsters and lots of fish. I some... More

We dove both sites and they were fantastic! There was a wide variety of sea life and we saw several large animals - sharks and turtles. Would definitely dive these sites again.

My wife and I dived both of these sites with Dive Aquamarine.... They are 2 of the better sites on the South side.... The swim through on the calf is pretty neet. I came within 2 feet of a reef shark while exiting and followed the shark... Great experience..... My wife is a newer diver and she enjoyed it as... More

I didn't see anything exciting, but it was fun to be there, and my husband saw a reef shark, which is always fun.

We went on a snorkeling/diving trip with Aquamarine. Since they had both snorkelers and divers to please, they took us out to Cow and Calf. The current was fairly calm and it was a fair distance to swim from the boat. But, it was worth it! There was an abundance of fish hanging out in the valleys and around the... More

Amazing dive site. Lobsters out in the open and sneaking out at you from their hiding places. Huge array of sea life.
