I am an experienced diver and this was my first trip to St. Bart. I emailed Thierry the evening before I wanted to go diving and he could not have been more accommodating. He was so kind as to wait for me when I was 10 minutes late after having gone to the wrong dock (totally my fault - sometimes... More

I took a group of people with these guys and they were great. I had both divers and snorkelers but they made it work perfectly and very safely. Thierry is fantastic and I can't recommend his company enough.

I dive with Thierry every year, always professional. A little stressed this year as the regular boat was having mechanical issues so we had to take a inflatable out to the dive sites. Whatever, still very good diving--sharks,rays,turtles,tarpon. The yacht wreck is always fun and around Pain sucre. Hopefully by now the catamaran is fixed but I will stick with... More

After boarding a brief instruction. Sailing for about 10-15 minutes and we where at the snorkling spot. The diving mask where old and not watertide anymore. After being in the water for approx one hour we went back. The captain was not the friendliest person I have met and as usely they ask for a tip.

I wish I could review the actual services of this dive operator, but I can't because at the LAST MINUTE he refused to accommodate us, after we'd booked and confirmed many months ago. If you are on St. Barts and can go see him in advance to confirm your booking, he's probably a find operator. But if you are trying... More

Tried to push us off later in the day but we could not wait. He borrowed a rubber dinghy and motored it a short distance to a spot in the harbor where his son took the two of us down for a very short dive. He anchored the dinghy a long distance from the dive spot so we wasted lots... More

Because I have to dive for my job, I have used many dive operations all over the Caribbean, Florida, and the Northeast of the US. Plongée Caraibes is, by far, the best operator that I have ever used. First off, the boat, Blue Cat, is fully outfitted so even if you are at a site and discover that your wetsuit... More

I recently completed my PADI Open Water certification with Plongee Caraibes. I had a great experience with Thierry (the owner) and Ludo (one of the instructors). Both were friendly, helpful, customer- and safety- focused. I completed 8 dives with Plongee Caraibes so had the opportunity to see different dive sites and their interaction with different divers (from the very apprehensive... More

It is a shame because the diving is so beautiful and there is so much to see. Captain seems to get a kick out of tormenting divers. Complete waste of time. Not worth getting suited up for 20 minutes of actual diving. Second dive was just as short. They couldn't get rid of us fast enough. Bad, Bad, Bad! Do... More
