  Kennedy: St Thomas

Kennedy Dive Site St Thomas USVI

DEPTH: 45-65 ft


The Kennedy is not it real name, it's a navy transport barge. The aircraft carrier, John F. Kennedy was offloading machinery to the barge when the crane on the JFK dropped some equipment, crashing through the deck of the barge, sinking it just outside of the Charlotte Amalie's harbor. Home of a great barracuda that stops by to greet the divers as they enter the wreck which is also heavily crusted with soft corals. The Kennedy is safe and provides a leisurely tour with never any current to speak of.

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!
