We will definitely be bringing this book along on our next trip to the USVI!

These are listed in the book index under "Snorkeling Sites" and identified with a snorkeling icon in the site descriptions.

I had a hard time finding a complete dive book for St.Croix--most of them focus on the other U.S. Virgin Islands.

We used this book a ton on our recent trip to the USVI. We were just snorkeling, and found the tips, sealife info and site information that helped us immensely. We fell in love with the VI and are looking forward to exploring more next summer. We just puchased the same book for the BVI and can't wait to go snorkeling next summer there!

This book has great photos and information - I'm so glad I brought it with us on our trip.

Format: Paperback
Thoroughly researched and thoughtfully constructed, this book offers something for everyone interested in exploring the amazing underwater landscapes of the USVI. Beginning divers and snorkelers will appreciate the overview of practicalities about how to get there, various underwater options, and other things to do when your extremities start to get pruney from all that time in the water.

More expert divers and those already familiar with the area can flip right to the heart of the book and delve into the descriptions of the many dive/snorkel sites. On our recent trip we stuck entirely with St. John, and I heartily agree with the author's assessment that Leinster Bay is one of the best snorkeling spots on the island. We can't wait to go back.

My only recommendation for the 2nd edition of the book would be to include even more sites accessible from shore for those spur-of-the-moment snorkeling expeditions.

We will definitely be bringing this book along on our next trip to the USVI!
