Another trip the SUDS crew has taken was to St. John; something they describe as an, 'Eco-paradise.'
Their first dive stop was Mingo Cay, where they refreshed their skills at ten feet, dropping to forty feet for a second dive.
On day two they dove at Congo Cay; it has a flat, sandy bottom at thirty feet, dropping off to sixty feet where there are plenty of turtles, stingrays, and tons of tropical fish.
For their third day they went to Little St. James, and then to Stevens Cay; both sites had plenty of tropicals for them to enjoy.
On day four they started at Grass Cay with a dive at forty feet, surrounded by mounds of brain coral.
On their last day the dove at Congo Cay with the sound of Humback whales in the distance.
Apparently the community at St. John spoiled them rotten.
Low Key Watersports gave them an amazing time and some generous donations.
The more I look at SUDS, the more I think about how much good they are doing for the returning veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts with disabilities.
Would you believe SUDS divers actually dive at Guantanamo Bay? They barbecue there too. It seems to be a fairly regular event.
