Diving St John

Explore diving St John

An idyllic Caribbean Isle, Saint John is blossoming with life. The smallest of the main Virgin Islands, many dive sites on Saint John are shared with its close neighbor Saint Thomas. However, there are some awesome sites that are specific to the island.

Eagle Shoals is an unforgettable spot and a divers favorite. There is a spellbinding cave known as the Cathedral, where bright sponges encrust the walls. You will see bizarre cavern-dwelling species of many variations. Turtles and stingrays hang out in shallower water, giving divers lots on a shore dive. Keep an eye out for a passing whale in the winter months or a pod of dolphins, if your timing is just right.
