Bring an underwater camera to capture the sea life and coral reef on film. The trail is suitable for beginners and will be guided by expert professionals, though more experienced divers find it equally entertaining, as it provides an illuminating look into the area’s tropical underwater life. A visit to National Park Underwater Trail represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Virgin Islands National Park itinerary maker to plot your vacation.
