We did a Discovery Dive at Adventures in Dive STX with my 10 year old son. Beautiful dive with lots of fish, coral, and other creatures to see. We will go back! Definitely recommend this dive to new and seasoned divers.

The Frederiksted Pier brings visitor, divers, families to admire the beauty of this little town and the sandy beaches. Kids love to dive off the pier as divers admire all the underwater life that abounds. A must visit when on STX
