Cruising and diving in the Spanish Virgin Islands

Cruising and diving in the Spanish Virgin Islands are very special, totally unlike her sister US Virgin Islands.

There is no better way to immerse yourself than in the natural bio-luminescent bay in Vieques, explore hiking around nature on the island of Culebrita, snorkel around Punto Colorado and dine on shore with the many great restaurants offered in these islands.  Diving is a treat!
