The Wall

The Wall

The Wall in St. Croix is a two-mile straight vertical drop off to the ocean floor. The water is shallow, warm, and perfectly clear as you start out, tiny colorful fish dart about, scattered coral formations dot the ocean floor. Not even a quarter mile from the beach is the wall. The depth is recorded from a mere 1,000 foot drop off to 2 miles straight down. The clear turquoise water shifts to a deep blue for a few feet and then solid black. You are floating directly above a black abyss.
