St. Thomas is a lush, tropical island surrounded by white sandy beaches. Scuba diving and snorkeling in clear turquoise waters is the norm. You can explore the exotic coral reefs and acquaint yourself with the numerous tropical fish.
Scuba diving lessons are given in various numbers of sites and they provide scuba diving equipment for you to use. My first scuba diving lesson was in a swimming pool where I learned how to use the scuba diving equipment. Later that same day I chose to take my first dive.
Scuba diving in the Virgin Islands is great for beginners to explore a brand new world of not only fish life, but also of exotic reefs. For the experienced scuba diver a dive to the Great Wall of Davis Bay in St.Croix is beautiful, or you can choose one of the other walls to dive; the Salt River Canyon East Wall or Salt River Canyon West Wall. Scuba diving in the Virgin Islands is the best in the world.
If you are extremely lucky, like the University Marine Biology students, who were scuba diving you might come across a great treasure. They were able to swim with a whale shark. Personally, my best encounter was snorkeling with an Eagle Ray that was approximately 20 feet wide. I have never seen anything so graceful and still it was so big compared to me.
