Charlotte Amalie

Coral World Ocean Park
Аквариум небольшой, но именно потому, что он небольшой, и там относительно мало народа, есть аттракции, которых нет в других местах — кормить из рук скатов, лапать акул, и шоу морских львов проходит в 70 сантиметрах от зрителей (а за отдельные деньги можно с ними поплавать и сфотографироваться).

Coki Beach is close by (literally steps away) and is a pretty, though small, beach. The other problem with Coki beach is that a busy road runs right by it which is sort of irritating.

Online через круизную компанию все организуется за 10 дней, стоит $110 тур, $20 фото, и клянчат чаевые. Если у кого есть, обязательно берите теплый костюм — на глубине вода холодная. Само погружение длится 20-30 минут. Честно говоря, никаких коралловых рифов вы рассмотреть не сможете - всё происходит довольно далеко от берега и быстро. Весь фан именно в этом скутере.
