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 favourite. 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 sting rays hang out in shallower water, giving divers lots on a shore dive. Keep an eye out for a passing whale or pod of dolphins, if your timing is just right.

Silvery horse-eye jacks, queen triggerfish, blue tang, spiny Caribbean lobster, spotted eagle rays, Creole wrasses, and cleaner gobies are just a handful of the marine life populating the underwater terrain in the Caribbean. Night dives allows you to experience octopuses, sea horses and moray eels.
