aka Salt River East Canyon Inner Wall?

The East Wall boasts vibrant sea life including soft corals, sponges and gorgonians all growing along a steep wall. The West Wall begins at about 30 feet, quickly drops to 90 feet and then plummets to 1,000 feet. The excellent topography — including pinnacles, mini-canyons and swim-throughs — easily makes this the most requested dive on St. Croix.

Just offshore from where Christopher Columbus landed during his 1493 voyage, this area is within the new Salt River Bay National Historical Park and Ecological Preserve.

Salt River Canyon

St. Croix’s north shore is one of the best-kept secrets in wall diving, and this site has two walls facing each other across a quarter mile of blue water. Hordes of reef fish swarm the tops of the walls, deep-water sea fans and black coral cling to the deeper sections, and big animals like hammerheads and black-tips sometimes make appearances.
Recommended minimum skill level: Intermediate to Advanced
