N2 The Blue: Frederiksted Pier Night Dive 4.26.11


While browsing Facebook today I came across these awesome pictures of  St. Croix’s awesome marine life courtesy of N2TheBlue. Personally, I’m not sure if I’d ever wade in the sea at night much less scuba dive but the scenery looks amazing.

N2 the Blue specializes in small group diving, with a maximum of 6 divers per boat. Whether from their custom dive boats, or going right off the Frederiksted Pier, their personalized experience and unlimited bottom time makes them an excellent choice. See website for rates.
