My husband and I dove with SCUBA back in 2001, and had such a great experience that there was no doubt at all about diving with them again when we returned this year, 2014. We dove one day from Christiansted (on Reliance), one day from Frederiksted (on Scuba Dos), and a night dive right off Frederiksted Pier.
These folks are great - the divemasters are professional, courteous, and safety-focused. The boats are comfortable for diving, there are a small number of divers, and the pineapple between dives is tasty, tasty! Dive shop staff are knowledgable and friendly, making note of preferred dive sites and recommending the best eats on the island (take their advice!). Gear is kept and rinsed for you after every dive day. And you don't have to be around long to bump into the owners, who are dedicated, involved, and friendly.
If you can, try to dive with Mark and Clint, and Captain Fuzzy - these guys are absolutely top notch - fun, easygoing, safety-minded, and extremely guest-focused both on the boat and underwater. We really felt special, like we were having fun with friends, rather than being just paying customers. Very nice job, guys!
Thanks to their letting us make some choices on dive location, we had the chance to take in day dives on the wall, 4 wrecks, and Fredricksted pier. St Croix offers great diving - not a zillion fish but a diversity of fish, reef creatures, and coral life that is really spectacular, and Fredricksted pier is a top notch dive spot with diverse life and vivid colors due to shallow depth, set against looming pier pilings stretching up to the surface, quite a sight.
On the night dive, we were one-to-one with the divemaster, who showed us clearly where we'd be diving and even walked us through the exit area as part of the pre-dive briefing to make sure we were comfortable with it. Underwater, he showed us many cool things, including more sea horses than I've ever seen before.
Overall, these folks were great and we'll plan to dive with them again next time we're in St. Croix.
