The difference between diving St. Kitts and Nevis is that Nevis is slightly more vulnerable to sea swells on days when the winds are whipping. The 80 to 100 foot visibility in most locations make braving the sometimes strong currents worth it. Prepare for dives of between 30 and 90 feet to explore delicate reefs and swim with brightly colored fish.
