St. Croix questions

We use to live St. Thomas and St. John 10 years ago.
We know that what is available now, won't necessarily be available with in the next 3-6 months when we will actually be looking to move. We are taking this time to learn about St. Croix.
Some of Our favorite things on St. Thomas were Coki beach and coral world. We loved the snorkeling with facilities, to shower the sand off. We loved the tents and shopping in Charlotte Amalie. We also loved the wild donkeys on St. John at Cinnamon Bay. Our favorite place to snorkel on St. John was Hawks Nest.
What can you tell me about St. Croix?
Best Place to snorkel, that have facilities such as showers to rinse or bathrooms.
Safe area's to live
Cable? Internet?
Thanks

internet-most people would say broadband for internet.
cable-either dish or innovative
dive-cane bay seems to be good , i guess the pier in frederiksted?
i have not seen facilities but does not mean they are not there

tan tan tours, beer drinking pig-both are good things to do. both owners are wonderful people also.

Yeah! Great life for a pig, stuck in small enclosure, force to guzzle beers to entertain stupid tourists and die early due to alcoholic related issues. Nice!(td)

We had a three bedroom house with a huge backyard. She wasn't forced to do anything she didn't want to.

See Dick Solberg, the Sun Mountain Fiddler, and his song "Buster, the Beer Drinking Pig" for more context...;)

No public facilities at Cane bay, If you are eating at eat you can use theirs. Not sure of the dive shop policy. For $4 per person you can go the the beaches at the Buccaneer and use the facilities (lounge chairs, bathroom, outside rinse shower, cold water drink coolers) including beach-side waitress service if you want at Mermaid beach. I think it's a good deal. On the East end I think it's called Cramer park that has basic public facilities.
