One of the first dive centers to open on the north shore rather than in the Christiansted area, Cane Bay Dive Shop is conveniently located near the Cane Bay Wall, one of the most popular dives around the island.

Cost and Offerings

The dive shop itself is the largest dive rental and retail shop on the island of St. Croix. If they don't have what you need, they'll get it for you. For divers, they offer trips both scheduled and unscheduled trips both during regular hours from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and after hours for midnight dives.

They are also a full service PADI 5-Star IDC Dive center, so those who require any amount of training can obtain it with the qualified staff.

Dive prices are comparable for the area, at $85 for a one tank boat dive and $115 for two tanks. If you'll be doing a lot of diving you can pay for a package which save you per dive. For example, the 12 tank dive package is $552, which comes down to $46(USD) a tank. Guided shore dives are less expensive at $50 for one tank and $80(USD) for two tanks. If you're interested in a night dive, the cost is $55(USD).

Those who plan to obtain training during their visit can expect to pay $75 for the Discover Scuba Diving course, $250 for PADI Scuba Diver Certification or for the Open Water Referral, $375 for Open Water Certification, $175 for Adventure Diver, and $300(USD) for Advanced Open Water.

What to Expect

Cane Bay Dive shop operates a 6 foot Newton Dive Boat, which is kept moored at the Salt River Bay Marina. Additionally, they utilize inflatable 20 foot pontoon dive boats. They were originally designed to be used by the Navy Seals and hold a maximum of six divers at a time.
