Did you already know that St. Croix is home to some of the best scuba diving in the Caribbean? The best way to know if you like scuba diving is to try it! In collaboration with Cane Bay Diving, our preferred dive partner on St. Croix, guests at The Palms have the opportunity to “TRY-DIVE” with a free session. Depending on your comfort level, beginners can start in our fresh water pool or in the shallow ocean water. If you enjoy the lesson and want more, Cane Bay Diving will apply your lesson as a credit toward the certification requirements to become an open-water diver.

Snorkeling on St. Croix
No need to pack your own snorkel gear when The Palms has fins, snorkels, and masks for guests to use. Our friendly staff are happy to lend these to you, help you find the right fit, and give you some tips on snorkeling the fringes of Long Reef; which is just a few yards off shore. Once you get the hang of it, consider signing up for a St. Croix Snorkeling excursion with a tour operator. Check with our front desk for more information.
Turtle Watch (seasonal)
Each spring, the endangered giant leatherback, the small green turtle, and the distinctive hawksbill turtles emerge from the sea, scoop out the sand, and lay their eggs. In the months that follow, thousands of two-inch turtles make a mad dash to the sea. During summer months, guests can participate in periodic nighttime turtle watches, sponsored by the St. Croix Environmental Association. This activity is based on space availability and, of course, depends on the turtles!
