I went to Sint Maarten in July. We spent the first day snorkeling on a trip to three neighboring islands. I was the only real diver in our little group. I bought a Discover Scuba class for my friend, who I don`t think will ever really embrace SCUBA and that`s okay. I know it isn`t for everyone. I went with an operator called Dive Safaris out of Great Bay on the Dutch side. The water was very choppy, seas kind of rough but the diving was pretty good. I did my deepest dive yet there. The wreck of the Fu Sheng at 120`. You may think that`s lightweight, but I am a mere open water diver with less than 50 dives logged. My camera housing started buckling but I was okay. No narcosis though our divemaster, Richie, was giggling. I would go back to Sint Maarten, I think it`s a pretty well-kept dive location secret!
