Scuba Diving in Navy Barges, Saint Thomas, US Virgin Islands
St. Thomas is home to a wide collection of spectacular wreck dive sites. With an amazing array of coral reefs, a variety of fish species and warm waters, this tropical destination attracts divers and snorkelers from all over the world. Just a short boat ride from Charlotte Amalie harbor, the Navy Barges is a wonderful wreck site for every diving enthusiast.
After World War II, the navy sunk the two barges, which lie parallel to each other in 12.2 m/40 ft depth of water. The wreck site is the ideal habitat for a selection of colorful corals and tropical fish, including parrot fish, big angelfish, nurse sharks, octopus, stingray, turtles and feather dusters. Keep in mind that it is also a great night dive spot. The average water temperature varies from 75°F/24°C in winter to 80°F/27°C in summer and the visibility ranges from 10 m/32.8 ft to 30 m/98.4 ft.
The Navy Barges welcomes both the beginner and experienced diver. Finally, you should book your dive in advance, as access to the dive site is only by boat. Note: be careful of boat traffic.
