I am a beginner and the staff helped get me oriented from the start? Rather than wear the ankhs I was hooked to a tank on a raft via a long hose. They taught me the basics so I could go down to 20 feet with confidence. The dive sites were very interesting. I highly recommend Blue Bubbles.

I would definitely recommend checking them out! Both my husband and I are fairly new to diving and Richard was extremely helpful and accommodating. We will definitely go see him when we are back in SXM in June!

Had a 4hr tour last week and even though my wife and I are certified divers (we have dove in 4 years) we did the snuba just to get our "feet wet" again and Raphael was the coolest instructor by far. All of the staff was great, took pictures for us, of us and lots of rum punch to go... More

A bunch of us were part of this fun ATV Tour, 6 people, some riding double, some single. We signed up through The Dive Shop in Philipsburg. The guide, Ashby, was super friendly and always went the extra mile for us. The itinerary takes you off road too ! We went completely around the island - both Dutch and French... More

We were just in Sint Maarten, for a week, first time ever, and we loved it ! We hiked, beach hopped, ate great food, danced bachata, but the absolute highlight of our trip was our time on the water with Blue Bubbles. My husband and I had never snorkeled before, but don't let that stop you. The crew was very... More

Take care. The city guides are not trustworthy. At the port we were advised by one and she recommended us this tour. Everything we were told, was a lie. 1. My husband and my kids wanted to visit the airport beach, so we asked for a tour that included that beach. Other stuff was additional for us. The guide offered... More

The very worst experience. Crew members were rude, moody and we were severely ripped off. You might as well swim around the freakin' island and not pay these people to drop off you off a mile away from a beach. Snorkelling focused on debris, and I am not kidding! We were told we would stop at the airport beach; did... More
