My itinerary with Princess includes stops at Curacao, Isla Margarita, Barbados, Dominica, St. Thomas, and Princess Cays. Anyone go SCUBA diving in any of these locations? Who was the dive operator? Was it a ship tour? What did you see? Which was the best location?
Any dive info you can give would help.
If you are not certified and want to try SCUBA for the first time go to the COKI Beach Dive Shop on St. Thomas. For $50 you get a 45 minute lesson, some practice in shallow water and then about 1/2 hour on the reef. Totally awesome and cheaper than the ship tour. I was off the ship by 8:30 AM and made it to Coki to get into the 9AM class.
They provide all of the equipment but if you have your own mask and fins you can use them as I did. You can check them out on the web at <http://www.cokidive.com>.
After my experience with them I am seriously thinking of getting certified.
