Fish & Sealife
St. Croix offers a vast array of fish and sealife because of the surrounding Caribbean Sea. Schools of tropical fish mingle around the colorful coral reefs, dolphins play in the deeper waters, and octopus hide among the rocks and bits of coral. St. Croix is a haven for nesting sea turtles including the green, hawksbill, and the massive leatherback sea turtles. Also, for several months out of the year humpback whales migrate just off the North Shore. Dive in (or snorkel) to get a closer look at the diverse population of fish and marine life species in their natural habitat. Or, perhaps you’ll get a peak at some of them from a boat or the shore.
