I was in St. Lucia on Jan 30th and dove with DLS/SS while in port on a cruise.

Bottom line: Good experience, would use again

Dive St. Lucia / Scuba Steve's (St. Lucia)
Meeting location: Water ferry dock right outside cruise pier. They stop at several other resorts to pick up divers before the cruise pier.

Boat: Volan - 15 divers max, covered deck area, no restroom.

Briefing: Just covered dive plan, no mention of boat safety.

Dive sites dove (they have many different ones, decide which ones to dive the day of):
They have 2 different dive packages for cruise ship passengers. The Standard Service is 2 dives in Anse Cochnon (20 minutes from port, max depth 40’). The Premium Service is 2 dives in Soufriere by the Pistons (35 minutes from port, max depth 60’). I did the Premium Service.

Coral gardens: Sloping reef, very easy, great marine life, 60’ depth.
Piton wall: Sloping reef along wall, great marine life, very deep but max group dive depth was 55’.

Dives: Group dive of 12 divers with 2 guides, 1 at front of group, 1 at back. Buddies established, everyone traveled slowly one way together along reef, boat moved to pick up at end of dive. Water and sandwiches provided during surface interval.

Comments: Good experience, easy to book with, would use again.
