  Andres Reef: St Thomas

Andres Reef Dive Site St Thomas USVI

DEPTH: 20-75 ft

Andres Reef, located on the North shore of Buck Island, is a sloping ledge tapering down from a 35 foot plateau to a 70' sandy bottom. Although not a true wall, Andre's Reef has many of the same types of marine creatures one would encounter on a wall dive. Large schools of fish patrol the reef and the occasional barracuda or large grouper patrol the schools of fish. Large sea fans and soft corals sway gently in rhythm with the water and countless grottos and rock formations harbor a variety of fish. While the best part of this dive is midway down the slope on a parallel course with the reef, large Southern Stingrays are often spotted on the sandy bottom

ONBOARD diving from a charter yacht is by far the best choice if you are planning a scuba diving trip in the Virgin Islands:

Your Captain will help you choose the perfect dive site - you sail up to the site - hook up to a mooring ball - dive in some of the world's best diving waters, and when you're done you climb back aboard your yacht to be met by the chef with a most welcome snack.

No need to wait for a commercial dive operator - then getting on a stinky diesel dive boat with strangers and taking time to get to and from the dive site - using up half the day.

Nothing beats a USVI or BVI catamaran yacht charter for ease and convenience when Scuba Diving in the Virgin Islands.

An awesome liveaboard scuba diving experience you will never forget!
