Located at the Renaissance Hotel on Cane Bay they dive the wall about 100 feet off the beach. Dive on Cane Bay is beach entry thru the surf. Surf varies with time of year and weather. Can be challenging entry if surf is up. Visibility was about 40 ft, possibly down because of rain. Not great dive for photographers due... More

Conviniently loacated at the main building of the resort. And a very short cart ride to the beach where a short swim takes you directly to some of the best shore diving on St Croix. The staff always cheery and helpful. Fully stocked dive shop run by experienced owners. And ready to deliver on what divers need. Earned my PADI... More

Mark and his staff at Sweet Bottom are the best...They take care of everything and truly seem to care about making for a great dive experience. If beach diving is your thing, this is the place. However, as a senior diver (old), I prefer diving from a dive boat. More diving, less swimming. Sweet Bottom will arrange for your boat... More

The instructors were excellent in customer service. They cared about providing a quality experience for the customer(s) by setting up equipment, cleaning/storing equipment after a dive, providing instructions and leading dives from the beach. The center can also set up boat dives. They pointed out interesting creatures, but also allowed divers plenty of time to dive on the wall without... More

I went diving with a group 24 divers in late September for a week of diving. I have to say sweet bottom took care of you from having your equipment organized before and in between dives on the boat to rinsing your gear after the dives. The staff would personally come up to you asking if everything was ok and... More

September 2016 - A week of diving (shore and boat) with Sweet Bottom Dive Center. I've been diving for 18 years and this dive provider was top-notch. Everything was done with excellence. The Marriott Hotel there is a secluded location with gorgeous beach.
