Ritchie trained my wife, daughter and myself to become certified divers. His patience, calm demeanor made the experience great. We enjoyed multiple dives in a variety of locations. One of the best nature moments of our lives was swimming with the giant manta ray

I am an advanced PADI diver and was staying at Turtle Beach where Richie's dive school is based. I had six dives with him over three separate days, two at Castara and one at Speyside with an excellent lunch afterwards on two of these. All were excellent, despite some fairly testing weather at Speyside with plenty to see and Richie... More

I'd contacted Ritchie in advance after I'd done my confined water dives in the UK. I wanted to complete my Open Water and make inroads into the Advanced. The weather was to transpire against me with large swells on the Caribbean side of Tobago severely impacting visibility. Ritchie however was more than happy to pick up divers from all around...

I previously had a bad experience diving in Thailand. I saw Ritchie and he built my confidence back up and I've now got my open water. He was calm, patient and really good with my family letting them come on the trips to the dive places. We had some really good dives there and saw loads around the coral near... More

At Wild Turtle Scuba we try to give the best possible service. Sometimes despite this you have people with expectations you cannot meet, and of course this leaves one unsatisfied. However when we have a happy client like you and others Vicky it makes it all worth while. We know that all our hard work is not for naught and... More

Richie agreed on last minutes notice to give me dives. He picked me up promptly and equipment was modern of good quality. I explained my limited dive history and took me on two dives that matched my skill level. Saw lots of sea life including Rays, turtles, lobster, huge green eels and group of lion fish. Will book again on... More

My family and I did 24 dives with Richie from the Rex Turtle Beach base. His boat was excellent, with new twin motors and neat storage space for spare gear. First dive was a gentle check dive, after which he assessed all the divers' abilities accurately, and matched dives to ability. Regs and BCDs are all new, and his and... More

I have dived with some bad dive company's in the past but this is the worst by a long way. Ritchie just wants your money and changes his prices to suit himself. His attitude towards diving is dangerous and he shouldn't be allowed to carry on putting people's lives at risk. His boats break down several times in 1 day... More

Hi, my prices are posted and if you think you are been robbed why not just ask to have your bill explained? I fail to understand why anyone would pay one price when another price is listed. My boats??? I have one it`s new. It has two fuel tanks so when ones empty you must switch to the other but... More

I tried to book a dive with them. unfortunately I didn't have cash. I saw on the flyer for this business that they show the visa/mastercard logo. Well, I asked if I could use my card, even go back to his office and run it. I was told it was too much trouble. Anyway, I didn't go diving. I will... More

This dive was booked three days in advance. This is when you said you`ll pay with cash,as you were staying in castara in the north and my office with my card machine is in the south. On the day of the dive three days later you still have no cash in hand and your solution is I drive to Castara... More

Had the great pleasure of diving with Richie in March 2015. He really knows his stuff and I loved his history lessons of Tobago as well as sharing his vast knowledge of diving in Tobago. He makes everyone feel relaxed no matter what level of diving experience you hold. The dives themselves were out of this world, I have never... More
