STORM FAQS

Two category storms in 12 days? Wasn't the island trashed?

Yes, it was, but with a tremendous amount of work from volunteers and professionals we're open and ready for you. Thank you to:

  • 900+ power linemen who came in to restore the grid.
  • FEMA
  • SBA
  • Red Cross
  • ASPCA
  • And a LOT of others
  • Things are #STILLNICE

 

How did the dive shop and your dive boats do?

Fantastic.

  • There was no damage to either of our dive boats.
  • There was no damage to the dive shop.
  • In fact, since the storm we have actually opened a second location on the west shore of the island. This was planned before the storms, we just accelerated things after them.
  • Both boats have been in full operation since a couple of weeks after the storm.

How is the island now really?

Quite good.

  • Power has been restored in all but the most remote places
  • Most hotels and restaurants are open and ready for you.
  • Several new restaurants have opened AFTER the storms.
  • Full airline service is back with several (AA and DL) adding additional service
  • #STILLNICE

 

How about the reefs and the beaches?

  • We've only seen a small amount of damage to the most shallow portions of the reef.  The vast majority of it was unaffected.
  • There was some erosion of beaches but most have already come back and are as beautiful as ever.

 

How can I help out?

Fortunately, we're well beyond the "chainsaws" and "generator" portions of our recovery. There are two things you can do though.

  • Come DIVING with us. The money you spend on the island having a blast with our world class scuba diving is the best recovery help we could possibly have.
  • When you get back home TELL EVERYONE you know what an awesome island St. Croix is and that it's......
  • #STILLNICE

 

Of course, you'd say everything's great but can we really believe you?

We definitely have a vested interest in convincing you that St. Croix is #STILLNICE, but not being honest about it wouldn't help anyone. St. Croix is STILL a wonderful island, with world class scuba diving.
