Welcome to Dockyard Divers, Antigua.One of the greatest pleasures in life is to go diving. To move in that extra dimension and enjoy the colour and adventure of this other world is something everyone should experience. And of course diving in the warmth of the Caribbean waters is an added bonus. If you haven’t yet got hooked, one great way to see if its for you is to try a beginners or resort course. First a basic, easy to understand lesson, followed by equipment check out in shallow water, and your first dive! After this experience most decide to take a certification course.

Booked a two-tank guided dive with Tony, early January, following the advice to dive in English Harbor. I was the only diver, so I enjoyed a "private tour". Tony is very knowledgeable and experienced, very professional. He picks up from a small marina, near the entrance to the Nelson Dockyard (I actually visited the dockyard after the dive). Tony has...

Tony takes out small groups. He took my son and I out on Xmas day. Tony brought us in a small boat to dive spots just outside the harbor for two good dives. Tony had an incredible life story and was very nice and friendly. We dove sting ray alley and the Pillars if Hercules, which is just at the... More

Tony took my husband and I out on a 2 tank dive just off the coast of Nelsons Dockyard. He was very experienced on the area, and described our dive and the fish and animals we would see. He knew where the octopus and sea turtle of the area hang out. The sea turtle seemed to swim by to say... More

Tony is one of the more experienced divers we have dived with. He is the third diver with more than 12,000 dives we have dived with. His experience is reassuring. He will not take more than 4 and took just my wife and me this day. We were off a cruise and took a cab to English Harbor which runs... More

I dived and my friend snorkeled with Tony during the off season. We were delighted to find so much equipment on his little boat. He has more than 1000 dives and knows the area like the back of his hand. He also had amazing stories to tell from living and diving all over the world. You are in good hands... More

I have dived with Tony on number of occasions and when recently visiting Antigua decided he was the man to take out my girlfriend and I. We had a great time and Tony was knowledgeable and reassuring- guiding us effortlessly through the local reef. I would recommend Tony to anyone.

I spent 12 days on Antigua while house sitting for some friends. I did six dives with Tony on three separate days. He picked me up just outside of the Dockyard at English Harbour in his very basic and sturdy boat, but that's all that is required as the dive locations were within a ten-minute ride of the dock. He... More

I never have trouble writing reviews but this one is hard. After reading quite impressive reviews about Tony we decided we would dive with him . He arranged to meet us at the car park by nelsons dockyard; the dive boat looked like a relic from the African queen but dirtier ! And no roof or shade from the burning... More
