About this Charlotte Amalie tour
As you slowly adjust to the water's resistance and learn how much effort it takes to walk 20 feet below the surface, look around you.
Vividly colored fish dart to and fro as they carry on their undersea business. In the nooks and crannies of the coral reef, you can spot an octopus waiting to snag its next meal. This reef provides shelter for a wide array of interesting creatures: If you look closely, you can see many of its hidden treasures.
But you'll do much more than just watch. The Sea Trek is fully interactive, meaning you'll get to feel the smooth, brainy texture of the coral and hold some of these undersea animals right in your hands. The entire time, your supervising dive instructor will show you some of the secrets that these seas hold, pointing out fascinating creatures that swim around you.
An aquarium or Discovery channel documentary is nice, but if you really want experience life underwater, there is no easier way than the Sea Trek. And you won't need a song to know what it's like below the shimmering blue waters of the Caribbean: You've been there.
