Meh son! I remember when I was in high school and went diving at Cane Bay. It was an experience I would never forget. The scenery is amazing. You know the wall is out there and it bottomless when you reach the top of the wall at about 175 feet. It drops off into the abyss. I don’t know how deep it is but we were able to meet up with Hal Rosbach, the owner of Cane Bay Dive Shop right across from Cane Bay. He has been there a very long time and specializes in scuba diving lessons and certification. He also rents snorkeling and dive gear.
Hal spent a great deal of time rebuilding on St. Croix following the damage caused by Hurricane Hugo. In his time off, he developed a love for diving. Hal was continuously drawn to the diversity and beauty of the Cane Bay Wall area.
In those days, most dive operators were located in Christiansted, and to dive the Wall involved a long and expensive boat ride. Tired of the restrictions imposed by diving out of an operation so far away, Hal opted for diving his favorite location from the beach.
Once Hal realized the diversity of dives available and accessibility of the Wall from shore, the seed was planted for the creation of the Cane Bay Dive Shop. Hal wanted to set up a dive shop that would take the meaning of being “diver friendly” to the next level, with optimum flexibility for the schedule of each and every customer.
