DIVING ST. THOMAS Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas Virgin Islands

Date: March 12, 1986

When our cruise ship the Carnival Holiday docked at Havensight Point Dock we grabbed a taxi and headed to Coki Beach on the northeast coast. This was me and Rosie’s first scuba dive although this was a cruise ship excursion dive through Virgin Islands Diving Schools with only 30 minutes of training and nor a real PADI dive certification.  Still it was exciting.  The blue, warm water was clear and conditions calm. We performed a shore entry and dove to a depth of 30 feet.  During the thirty minute dive we saw colorful fish such as Sgt major, yellow striped grunts, butterfly fish, trumpetfish and parrotfish. A great first diving experience that convinced me to get PADI certified.
